    "I didn't mean to do it," the woman said. "We was arguing, I tried to get my gun to prove a point, they got the rifle with me and it went off."

    Thank God that most people do not need a FOID card.

    LAUSS (License Against Unreasonable Search and Seizure, renewable every 5 years IF you meet all criteria, which may have been changed since you were issued the card. If you lose this card you are subject to search and seizure anytime anyone feels like it, without warrant or cause.)

    FOR1 (Freedom of Religion, One: Right to freely practice one specific religion. Denomination must be registered with the Government. If you begin to practice a new religion, that one must be registered also. Must pass background check and written exam to renew every 5 years. Practicing religion without a FOR1 is a felony.)

    Gets ridiculous in a hurry, doesn't it.... but oddly enough the Founders never said "By the way...the Second Amendment isn't actually as important as the First, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, Ninth and Tenth, despite the fact that we put it in there with the others. Go ahead and make it a privilege that has to be renewed every few years, no matter how ludicrous it would be to do that with the other 9.

    Heck, we could make property ownership something you need a 'OID card for. If you are unable to renew your POID every 5 years, you have to hand your house over to the government, even if it is paid for...

    It amazes me that people get upset when the government regulates dangerous things.

    It amazes me that people want to make a right that is so fundamental that it was enumerated in the Constitution, into a privilege that can be taken away at the government's whim. If they can mandate a FOID card, they can determine the criteria to possess one... and change it to make it as hard to get and maintain as they wish.

    You wouldn't put up with a 5 year license with hoops to jump through for, say, political speech now would you? How do you feel about background checks, a written test, and paying a fee for your voter registration card?

    I'd argue that letting some people vote is far more of a threat than letting them have a gun...

    The "criteria" for getting a driver's license is "not getting more than six DUI's" in some states. I don't really see what the worry is about.

    Not to mention about 7 times more people die in traffic accidents than are ever murdered with a gun.

    To say "at the government's whim" isn't an honest representation of reality. There are valid reasons that some people shouldn't have guns. The public safety trumps an individual right.

    One vote can't take a life.

    It's a poor analogy. It takes a whole lot of people to "pull the trigger" as far as voting is concerned. A vote can't be pointed at your head. A vote doesn't have the sole purpose of destroying something.
