Registration is part of responsible gun ownership. Training is part of responsible gun ownership. Gun locks and gun safes are part of responsible gun ownership. Being liable when your gun is used in a crime is part of responsible gun ownership at both the individual and corporate level because really...the only way a criminal should get ahold of any of your guns is to pry it from your cold dead fingers.
STFU? That's not very nice. Tsk. Tsk.
You are woefully misinformed. Or just pushing your hatred of guns. I'm a proud NRA Life Member, Instructor, and gun owner. And will be forever. You are just another utopian socialist that is carrying Michael Bloomberg's water.
There are plenty of boundaries already. Thousands of gun laws that have done little when criminals want to break the law. Should we make more laws so things are MORE illegal? Sure, that will work! Make it double-secret illegal!
Let me help you here. What follows registration? In Australia? In California? In Africa? In 1939 Germany? yep- CONFISCATION. Sorry, but that is historical fact. Deal with it. I have precedent for thinking that people like you want to eventually TAKE MY GUNS.
BTW- Who has given away more gun locks than the VPC and Brady combined? In fact more than any other group in the nation? That's right- the N-R-A!
BTW- Who trains more people in the firearms safety than anyone else? That's right- the N-R-A!
If your car is stolen and used in a crime by a criminal... are you responsible even though you locked the doors? Give me a break.
You can have your totalitarian wet-dream all day about shipping us all off to our own little country, or whatever the hell you are babbling about. It's indicative of the fantasy world you'd like to live in, and are trying to force on the rest of us.
Please, stay the hell out of Texas. It's much too dangerous for you here apparently. Here in my home county, fully 1 in 40 people has a CHL. We have not experienced random mass murders or any of the problems that plague Washington DC which has a total gun ban.
If guns themselves are the problem, why are there no shootings at gun shows? Thousands of guns just lying around? Because the good people have guns TOO.
