A car is essential, yes. As are guns (to a point!)
as I've said many times, guns should be limited to shotguns, handguns and hunting rifles.
anything else bought, especially under the guise of 'hobby' is completely absurd!
Buying a car for cash and not registering it is illegal, is it not (in my country it is)
I imagine it would be the same for guns, buying a gun 2nd hand from someone and never registering it. (is it?)
But I think at a minimum, a bare minimum every man, woman, child or egotistical, psychopathic gun nut American that walks into a shop/gun show and
purchases a deadly weapon needs to be thoroughly checked out, properly documented and recorded, period! no ifs, buts or what nots. If your scared of
having your name and details recorded in a register, don’t buy a gun. If you've got something to hide in your past, then hell I hope you never have
the authority to buy a gun. If you have mentally disabled people in your home, no gun!
This is just common sense protection for society and as much as you gun nuts wish it so, society comes first over your personal hobby for firearms.
I've been on ATS for.. 8yrs now? have had some pretty heated debates with various people, especially in the GW bush years. I still stand by
convictions on that one. But this gun stuff, has really gotten me to my witts end with ATS. Not because people dont agree with me (thats the fun part)
but because I've lost so much respect and admiration for America and Americans that I truly not cringe at the thought of coming back to this site. So
I think i might definitely take a break for a while, because some of you really make me feel depressed over western society!
on that note, ladies and gents take my advice, pull down your pants and slide on the ice!
