But we can always take things to extremes, what about nuclear weapons, biological, etc. At some point when we go into machinery and weaponry there becomes a point in which everyone says "ok, the People cannot be allowed to have X".

    In terms of firearms, I don't even like background checks...I can grudgingly put up with them if they are instantaneous. I don't believe in waiting periods, permits, or anything else which infringes upon the right of the individual to keep and bear arms and which attempts to turn the right into a privilege.
    I'm with you everywhere except the background checks. I think that an instant background check should be required of everyone purchasing a firearm. I think that firearms are no longer a right for someone who has used one in the commission of a crime and that a background check that comes back dirty in that regard only should bar them from the purchase.

    Yea, that's a good point.

    WHAT IF a crazy guy takes their gun and starts shooting everyone!?

    WHAT IF a Russian Commando on vacation disarms the officer, holds him hostage, breaks into a police station, obtains MORE firearms from the armoury and proceeds to go on a rampage!?

    WHAT IF...

    Safest place to stand when a cop is shooting at you? Right in front of them.

    Just to be fair, 3 links does not mean 3 incidences. You are not arguing against his point, just ridiculing him to avoid the actual point.

    That's the realm of Lifetime made for TV movies, not real life.
    Where the poster said "I have never heard of a single case where an armed citizen has been disarmed by their own assailant. "

    & since a cop is certainly a citizen of this country, armed & presumably more difficult to disarm than Miss Landers,......I quickly found a few links to disprove his point. I could find many more links &.......So could you.

    I can understand that. As I said, instant background checks are something I would grudgingly accept. But I don't like registration or permits or anything else like that.

    Not being mean, but the I would love the irony of you getting shot and killed because there wasn't enough regulations. Same goes for everyone else wanting no regulations for gun ownership.

    So be it. If I got shot and killed, well there's probability of that. Not high, more likely to be taken out by a car while in the crosswalk...especially in my town. But whatever. What I wouldn't want is my death being used as means to enact more gun law. I will live by freedom and die by freedom if necessary. If I die free, well there are well worse conditions to die under. I would much rather die free than live enslaved.

    I always loved the NRA BS that says that requiring registration is the first step in the government's plan to come & take our guns away.
    By that thinking, requiring a marriage license must be the first step in the government's plan to come & take....... our WIVES AWAY!!!
