    In my industry they are called brush fits and if obama wore a hard hat he surly would have thrown it.

    it was the typical reaction of an entitlement/affirmative-action poster child who didn't get his way

    When you begin to threaten others, the government has the right to intervene.

    I don't know how much simpler I can make this for you. Your rights exist only as far as you respect others and their rights.

    Ahem..."power" to intervene

    You better make it simpler because I still don't get it. If no harm has come to you and no harm was even attempted than I can't imagine why the government could act. It appears to me they are just acting on restricting the rights of the people to speak their minds.

    Look, the government has a duty to protect the general public. If that means that you have to go through such draconian measures having to pass a background check to ensure that dangerous weapons don't fall into the hands of psychopaths, criminals, and the mentally-ill, so be it.

    If we have to curtail the use of certain weapons, which are not themselves necessary in everyday life, to ensure the safety of our friends, family, and children, so be it.

    Rights are not absolute. They come with responsibilities, chief amongst them that you will not use your rights to harm others. If we have reason to believe that you will ignore your responsibilities, or are unable to even consider them, the government has a right to intervene.

    That...is the simplest...I can possibly make this.
