Why not hold people accountable to their firearms every year like we do with their cars?
    Wow. I did not expect this coming from a libertarian. I'm pretty liberal and even this would probably piss me off lol.

    Good idea. Let's get rid of cars too. Cars kill 30,000 people a year, and injure 2.3 million adult drivers and passengers every year and is the leading cause of death of those ages 5-35 in the United States. If cars were not everywhere, it would not be so easy for people to have accidents and kill themselves and others in them. We need to ban all moving vehicles immediately!

    I am well aware of acid burning, just making a quick point, but if that made you feel better about yourself, I am glad I could help.

    And all of this self-protection talk makes me wonder where you guys live, Beirut?

    And Catz if violent crime is more prevalent in big cities, why do we need guns in the burbs to protect ourselves?

    See, the problem is that with ever new tweak of the laws, they accomplish nothing. It's all rhetoric and BS. In the end, they don't stop anything and merely make the wait longer. People like you get all worked up over something that simply will not go away.

    So...you're like a douche in training? Or just hoping to be the most clevererist person in the whole wide world? Meh. I don't worry about the spell check sometimes. Typically I throw it into Google to get it. "Ahmenadejed" is another one I tend to massacre. I just rely on people to be less sophmoric and mature enough to overlook such trivial things in order to actually have the discussion. Obviously, maturity may be lacking for some. Careful to check all my spelling,now. Maybe make sure my sentence grammer is perfect while you're at it.

    I guess you don't have much of a clue of what an assault rifle is

    read the 1934 NFA and the 1986 Hughes amendment so you won't make another mistake of such proportions again

    Well, Republicans tend to believe that Al-Queda, black people, and Democrats are hiding in the bushes. Liberals tend to believe that utopia is just one absent gun away. ......Hey Johnny Centrist...how's my spelling? Am I doing OK for ya?

    all these laws do are hinder and infringe on the rights of honest people--which is what many on the left want

    I have a great idea-YOU CANNOT BUY COCAINE UNLESS A DOCTOR PRESCRIBES IT TO YOU

    THAT WILL STOP ALL THOSE CRACK HEADS FROM ABUSING COCAINE BASE

    since a criminal cannnot be forced to incriminate himself your silly idea cannot even be applied to criminals.

    no one is trying to ban cars and cars are not constitutionally protected

    your suggestion has no merit
