I want my assault weapons, because I love them. much as one loves a work of art...
no offense, but that is a fairly juvenille sounding reason
you WANT them, but you have no use for them
Your reasoning is completely fallible. Without logic and not to my point at all I am sorry to say...
Of what use is a Picasso?
Why do you own a red car and me a black four wheel drive?
Of what possible use are ties?
Decorative vases, Nick Nacks, Books you have read and flowers...
Because you enjoy them is of course the only logical answer. So you may own them. Why are you denying me the ability to own something I enjoy?
Who are you or anyone else in this world to tell me what I can enjoy and why I enjoy it?
See that is the real problem, the true root of this entire debate. You want to tell others what they can own and what they can not. How can you
possibly put yourself or see yourself in that position?
This is a very prevalent mindset in today's society. One person feeling they have the moral high ground to tell others what they can or can not do,
own or say. Usually they are the ones that espouse their beliefs in freedom, yet attempt to take our freedom away at every turn...
That is what is happening. You are taking my freedom away from me. Oh yeah, this is all for my own good, for the good of society... But that is how
tyrants always start, then before you know it, they tell us the press is bad and must be limited, the internet, heck it is probably better to search
houses without warrants too. Once you deny me one right, what is too stop you?
Because it is a right......
Funny how the Founding Fathers never included the right to vote in the constitution or bill of rights, but they considered gun ownership important
enough to make it the 2nd Amendment...
ps. Do you recall your history lessons? What was Hitler's very first official act upon taking control?
He outlawed private gun ownership.....
