But the government knows I own a gun because I went down to the probate court and renewed my carry permit. So it probably doesn't matter. I guess it all depends on how much one trusts their own government. But one thing to remember, a gun is nothing more than a tool, much like a hammer or a screw driver. How that tool is used depends on the user. I don't know which side to come down on and in the end it probably doesn't matter. After all, being retired military I am all ready on DHS Janet Napolitano list as a potential terrorist.
    I have a permit too-the government has no idea the number or the makes and models of the guns I own. and that is the way it should be

    It has total relevance. It shows trends are not permanent, and bound to change.

    and it shows that gun laws have no relevance or impact on such things.

    the duty is on people like you to prove the laws you want to foist on the rest of us actually work

    be my guest and prove that

    The same way all laws are enforced. By arresting and prosecuting those that break the law.

    Re: Universal background checks

    There haven't been any new gun laws so how did you come to this conclusion. If the duty is on me exclusively to offer solutions while you play defense then we aren't actually having a real debate.

    What solution are you talking about? I didn't mention a solution in your quote. xD

    Yeah, I know as evidenced by the last ? pages of repetition. I merely responded to his veiled ad hominem by agreeing to it thus, hopefully to get a thoughtful response. I gave him a specific scenario of a firearm transaction between me and my neighbor to which he claimed could be ‘excluded’. I know little about my neighbor regarding his eligibility to own a firearm but since it will be excluded…Well, we’ll see what specific response is produced.

    I asked a rhetorical question why all of those who feel a need for more laws are self labeled socialists, progressives or liberals. Passing laws is to the far wrong as talking is to some women. Its the act of passing a law that brings satisfaction rather than actually accomplishing any objective good.

    Handguns are not the issue, and that does not negate that in 19 years, even with a conservative court, background checks have not been ruled an infringement.
