Well stated and I agree totally. What is there about "shall not be infringed" that needs to be debated???
Duster, well said! the firearm should not be punished for the actions of it's owner. a firearm is an inanimate object that only performs as it user directs it to. it can't think, reason or have any emotions. the firearm is niether good or evil. if a person drives a car drunk and runs over someone and kills them, are cars evil because of the actions of the drunk? have they ever at any point tried to ban cars because of drunk drivers? no! then why ban or restrict a type of firearm because some liberal deems it evil and dangerous.I agree as well axxe. Only thugs own automatic weapons?When was the last time a legally owned automatic weapon was used in a crime, by the legal owner or the crook who stole it? I'm sure it must happen, but I can't remember a story. The only guy I've ever known who owned them, he had three, was an Air Force SSgt I served with. He was a bit bent but he was no thug. The left tells us they have no intention of taking away our sporting arms. Well a machine gun is good for no other purpose in the hands of a legal owner during times of civil harmony except sport shooting. If the SHTF a Marlin 60 becomes a weapon of war, and I personally see no difference except the cost of buying and shooting the two types of guns.
axxe that`s why i compared it to hitler i am a history buff and after hitler did that people just started dissapearing and i don`t have to go any further on that but harsher penalties,our hard earned money is going to pay for these animals,child molesters,rapists, murders,drug sellers i am sorry but they style in jail and cry about their rights and their hbo is not on today.makes me sick and i am going to as far as to say the repeat offenders using our money not caring about human life.i think the statistic is around 75k or so for one inmate for 1 year this might sound cold but if you don`t care about human life and keep doing evil thif you compare the gun restriction laws Hitler implemented in the 1930's and those that were imposed in our country in 1968, i think a person could determine our gun control laws were modeled after his. scary thought!
personally i think what's needed is stricter penalties and punishment for crimes commited with firearms and not penalize the law abiding citizen his right to own and use whatever firearm he so chooses.
for some strange reason the anti gun liberals cannot seem to grasp the fact that gun control laws only keep those firearms out of the hands of LAC, not the criminals they are trying to prohibit possession of firearms.
