That might be your opinion, but it's not mine. And you know what they say about opinions.False throughout, and I have a right to own a gun, not a priveledge, I do not need a license to own firearms, and am not required to register them because it is a right, not a priveledge.
Poor ole Matt Dillion. He didn't have the NRA around to tell him he had no right to make everyone coming into Dodge to check their guns at the livery stable.
This is also just someone's opinion.It's not his opinion, it's the law of the land.
Companies have a right to make money off of something you and I have a constitutional right to just like companies have a right to profit off of bibles,printers, phones, and other things used to exercise first amendment rights.I believe the safety of the people is pushed aside for the profits of the gun runners and they're using the constitution and scare tactics to push their product.
Crooks would still get their hands one guns.The only thing your ideas would do is infringe on the rights of law abiding citizens. If the government required a license to use a phone, to write, to go to church, to protest, to address grievances to the government, to report the news to print things would you say that the 1st amendment was still a right? The idea of requiring a license for a right is absurd, the whole point of something being a right is that you do not need to ask the government permission to exercise that right. A license does not stop a criminal from buying his gun illegally or stealing it. All it does is give the government a database of who has arms that it can one day use against them.If every gun sold was licensed to an owner,
There are a some responsibilities for owning a gun.I can't first degree murder, drive by a gas station and randomly shoot bullets at the place, I can not go into a shopping mall and shoot at the mall ceiling. All those things would land me jail/prison, fined and or sued.and some responsibility taken for owning a gun,
I was under the impression that those people used illegal firearms, bought their firearms illegally or obtained them illegally. You seem to be under the impression that people who regularly commit crime are going to obey anti-2nd amendment laws.it would eventually become more difficult for violent criminals, gang members, and burgulers to get their hands on one.
No we wouldn't.We would be less safe because only the government and crooks would have most of the firearms. Unarmed people say easy targets for criminals.If we would have started this years ago, we'd all be much safer now.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
