    you continually lie

    its on you to prove the infringements will create more public safety

    and you cannot

    tell us catawba, why do you want the government to hassle people who don't cause crimes

    its already illegal to use a gun wrongly or to possess one if one has a record

    why do you want laws that only hassle people like me?

    There's no criminal gain. By definition there has to be a mental issue. Sorry.

    We do not recognize your "right" to save a few bucks at the expense of innocent people's lives. No one is hassling you. You have maintained for year there are only cosmetic differences and that high capacity mags are of no advantage to a shooter.

    There is no out right ban on guns even suggested. So I don't know where that came from. We're speaking go automatic weapons and an increase of back market activity by stupid and mentally I'll people. I was speaking in the content of our conversation.

    as someone who spent years as a prosecuting attorney I reject that idiocy as not based on our laws many crimes do not result in gain. vandalism for example.

    I'm starting to believe that because I know he isn't stupid, and just look at what happened when they tried to ban alcohol. These types of restrictions and bans only benefit street gangs, criminals and murderers. Then the criminal element would be WELL aware that the majority of the law-abiding public would be unarmed and defenseless, and most criminals take advantage of opportunity.

    90% of the most active anti gun posters on this board are motivated by a desire to hassle, harass or actually oppress people who don't buy into their far left agenda

    Well, at least be honest. I never said anything about intelligence or being civilized. I merely noted that there really is the need some of you envision.

    Bans, restrictions, limitations. It doesn't matter. It won't stop BAD people from getting guns. Only GOOD people won't break the law. Criminals are criminals because they break laws. Therefore, your proposal of more laws and restrictions are useless in the bigger scheme of things. You are looking at this situation much too simplistically.
