Anyone that disagrees is a socialist. Gotcha.
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.
Registration only equals confiscation in the minds of folks who are zealots. Lets see...registration of NFA weapons means...confiscation. No...seems like all Class 3 license holders still have their NFA weapons. California...still seems to be gun owners there.
The NRA's official position is for gun registration. But here's a lifer that hates it. Hmmm...and folks wonder why no one believes the NRA's official position?
Scratch the surface a little and BOOM...rampant paranoia where we live in a gestapo nation out to get our guns. State laws are just that...state laws. If you live in a gun friendly state like VA or TX registration will never be followed by confiscation.
The 2nd amendment should preclude a national (total) ban on 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!
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.
Gun locks don't stop theft and you KNOW that. Gun locks keeps kids from getting hurt. If your guns aren't on your person they should be in a safe. In the nightstand when you're IN the bed is sufficient for me as "on your person". In the nightstand when you're out of the house aint.
If a manufacturer continues to supply a source that is known to have problems with controls (like the one that "lost" thier AR to the sniper) then, yes, I'd say they were being negligent. If the industry self-policed better with sales and access there wouldn't be much cause for increased regulation.
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.
It was a joke you loon. Well half a joke...
Please, stay the hell out of Texas.
Well heck yeah. Been there, done that, don't need to do that again.
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.
You go to gun shows that allow loaded weapons on the floor? Riiiight. Like gun shows these days that allow loaded weapons can get flipping insurance for the show.
Don't bullshit a bullshitter.
