It's a pretty simple question. Since the Orlando shooting the calls for gun control have gone through the roof. Liberals in congress grandstanding
about AR15s and terror watch lists. Even Trump getting in the mix talking about the terror watchlist and using it to deny gun sales to "potential
Just today I saw a story that a little over 70 DHS employees are on the terror watch list. When this list was first introduced we found thousands of
otherwise law abiding citizens on the list. Including several cases of children as young as 7 included. This list turned due process on its head
Now we are talking about using that list to ban people from owning guns. What these people don't get, or simply don't care about, is that in order to
remove a right from a US Citizen there must be due process involved. This whole concept DESTROYS innocent until proven guilty by placing the burden of
proof on the individual instead of the government when it once belonged. This whole concept violates, on it's face, the 4th and 5th amendments.
Gun owners already have no 4th and 5th amendment rights. We are REQUIRED to prove our innocence to the state before we can exercise a constitutionally
protected right. But that's not good enough for you, Mr. and Mrs. anti gun. You don't care, apparently, what rights you drag along the cutting room
floor in order for you to achieve a false sense of security. You want to feel like you've done something...
You will do something. You think this is just about guns and just about gun owners. But it isn't. You do not understand just how intertwined and
overlapping the Bill of Rights is. When you tamper with one you destroy the rest. How many people got put on the watch list during the Bush admin for
going to a protest? Why wasn't that ok then, but it is now ok to do it to gun owners?
I don't want to hear liberal, anti-gun America EVER complain about the NSA, privacy rights, or any other totalitarian act of government until they can
cogently explain to me why I must have MY 4th and 5th Amendment rights stripped from me in order to exercise the 2nd Amendment.
I'm willing to bet you can't. There is no justification for destroying liberty in the aftermath of terrorism. When Bush was in office ALL of these
arguments are the same ones you made when it came to his administrations abuses of power. Now it's suddenly ok? You're a bunch of hypocrites. You
argue from positions of ignorance and emotionalism with zero regard for the consequences of your capricious demands on the rest of us via the FORCE of
You are aiding the creation of an extremely dangerous totalitarian state. You're too caught up in the moment to look ahead any further than your own
feelings. Even when facts are presented to you the reaction is always to lash out emotionally and to appeal to the illogical. When was the last time
you stopped and really thought about the consequences of your actions?
You really think this is just about guns? You're about to be in for a rude and potentially violent awakening as you aid a corrupt government in
stealing away rights based on nothing more than false information and emotional knee-jerk reactions.
