That's the kind of traditional thinking that set OJ free, and allowed this guy to purchase legally.
I also own a ton. Where I live, registration of a second hand sale doesn't require registration. So I don't.
But if you ever lived in a place like NYC, you'd see why anything short of amendment infringement won't work.
I'm sure you didn't mean it, but it sounded like you support the illegal sale of a fire-arms to minors?
They cant drive, drink, or watch rated R movies, but you think they should be able to support a weapon?
That may've been reasonable when the constitution was written, but if you believe that works in a modern urban society, you may want to reevaluate
your stance. Children, convicted felons, mentally ill, by constitutional rights, are all entitled to carry a deadly weapon. But the screening process
is supposed to block that sale.
If you want to talk constitutional law, they should all be allowed to carry.
Is that what you really believe?
I can't speak for anyone else, but it's what I believe. If I start regulating and truncating the rights of others, how long before they can do the
same to me?
Nutters with guns won't last long. They'll get taken out of the gene pool.
Convicted felons? Sure. If they can't be trusted to carry, why the hell let them back out with the rest of us to begin with? If you can't trust 'em,
you can't trust 'em - for ANYTHING. Leave 'em locked up away from us then, or X 'em out, but don't give 'em additional "restrictions" and turn them
loose on the general populace. THAT amounts to a life sentence as a non-person. Hell with that. If they've paid their debt to Society, they're done.
Either make FREE men out of 'em, or leave 'em in the cell to rot. Don't give them "status" as some in-between half-person.
Kids? Why not? I know some kids who are a damn sight more responsible than some adults. It's all in the training. Not my problem if other folks don't
want to be bothered training their own kids. I've OWNED my own firearms every minute of every day since I was 8 years old, and have never shot anyone
who didn't desperately need it. My son, on the other hand, is a teenager now, and by these new screwy laws can't "own" a weapon of his own. No matter.
You can bet your ass he's got access to one regardless of "ownership". He's been trained, and is ACUTELY aware of the destructive potential, and the
lasting ramifications of it's use. He doesn't take it lightly, and I'm willing to bet he'll never be a victim of anyone who does.
It's all in the training. IF you have kids, either train 'em right, or EXPECT them to get culled out. Either way, it's not my problem, I've trained
Why should the responsible be penalized for the acts of the irresponsible?
