Well in some State's Constitutions you are required to register firearms. So maybe some idiot somewhere mixed things up. I'm sorry that I've found reason to be so contrary in your thread but I see things how I do, not to mention anything by the Blaze tends to be over-reactionary. Every faction has an agenda.

Should there be laws for owning certain books? How about checking your mental health before you are allowed to purchase a book?
Would you support that?
Depends...has some one ever went on a rampage with a book striking people over the head..and killed them..how about multiple deaths such as in a mall, movie theater?
Yea, because religious texts have never caused someone to kill a person, or thousands, or millions.
Books sole purpose was never intended to end life...but guns..sole purpose is to terminate life.
You know very well what a gun sole intent is for.
Tell me why did you buy a gun..for protection? If it is to be used as such would you shoot to kill or injure. If kill then, is that not why you bought it..to end life?
