    Interesting.
    According to Fox New's "governor" Huckabee, this is the way things SHOULD be...
    Unlimited ownership
    No regulations
    Or, England does this and that and we do the opposite..
    Have you ever been to England? Citizens are treated like cattle, piss on that

    That's my opinion as well. I'm not really ideologically opposed to gun restrictions, as much as I just believe they generally don't work.

    Isn't that what they said about restrictions on drunk driving?

    I'm not sure those are comparable situations.

    I don't take safety into consideration when it comes to freedom.
    Haymarket's "support" of the 2nd Amendment, a right he believes we never had.

    Fixed it for you. There is an important distinction between citizens and subjects. England has subjects. Here in America, we are suppose to be citizens; though far too many of us have been too complacent in allowing our public servants to treat us as subjects.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    People didn't think that drunk driving could be reduced with restrictions and penalties, but it did, significantly.

    Getting a drivers license, registering the car, taking periodical road safety tests, penalties for road violations are some similiarites that could be applied to guns. For getting caught drunk driving, a person could lose their drivers license, pay hefty fines, go to jail, get a police record, forced to go AA and even sued if they injure or kill someone. All that has helped to reduce drinking and driving. A campaign emphasing gun safety and taking the glamor out owning guns would go along way to hindering the gun culture that seems to permeating society.

    ya mean they didn't restrict cars or alcohol, but instead imposed stiffer fines for bad behavior... and it worked?

    imagine that.

    Well, by taking away a drivers license had the effect of restricting cars. And breath analyzers if you got pulled over had the effect of restricting the number of drinks one might have before driving.

    So yeah, imagine that.

    See, this crap is annoying. These anti-gun nuts think that firearm proliferation is going to cause the wild wild west to come alive, where people can openly brandish, wave their pieces in the air, even shoot around like Yosemite Sam. If you opened the gun flood doors, America would turn into Pulp Fiction.

    You seriously have to question the mentality of people who think this, and wonder if they even know one responsible gun owner that may negate all the liberal sensationalism.
