Checking to see if people can legally obtain a firearm is a lot like checking someone's ID to see if the can legally buy alcohol

Smokes and alcohol were not written in to the BILL OF RIGHTS.

The RIGHT of the people to keep, and bear arms, Shall not be infringed was.

So let's just arm everyone, is that the solution?

This isn't Iraq of Afghanistan, and despite what some people think America is not a "war zone".

Ever watch the security footage from convenience stores when the clerk pulls out his own gun? More often than not the criminals run. They don't run for fear of the police coming, they run because they don't wanna get shot.

America itself isn't a war zone, but I bet some parts of Chicago are on any given night, and don't they have the some pretty strict gun laws?

hey these guys really know all about dangerous weapons! i mean they know to ban weapons with large capacity magazines....

(except the point of any magazine is to be able to drop one and slam another in in less than a second)

they know to ban mean old bayonet lugs...

(except as far as i know no crime has ever involved poking someone with a bayonet equipped weapon when one has a perfectly serviceable firearm anyone ever heard of a mass killer mounted bayonet attack? even a single killing of a single person with a mounted bayonet?)

They know to ban flash supressors (compensators) because they hide the shooters location...

(except they do no such thing and it's kind of a hard to hide a shooter that is about 7 yards from you and the compensator actually helps prevent barrel rise and *allegedly* allegedly preserves night vision)

They know to ban those extremely dangerous pistol grips...

(except hunters and every us serviceman prior to vietnam killed easily enough with rifles that had no pistol grip)

They know there just has to be something wrong with having an adjustable buttstock...

(ah never mind... they really don't know jack about weapons and what makes them dangerous. that would be the shooter.)

Ya know that thing that people call the definition of insanity. We have the freedom loving left. Pushing the same old things time, and time, agian.

Yep, and brought forward by the same small group of lifetimer politicians
in the Democrat Progressive Socialist, Communist party.

These folks that run that party where the faces are all the same, the names
are the same for 30 years, many connected to the mob, and felons.

But yeah, lets hand over our rights, not.

If they cant get the popular opinion, which I see that job has been hired
out to shills, they will try to confiscate like they did in Australia.
