wayne lapierre explained today that since background checks won't keep guns out of the hands of ALL criminals they're essentially useless. makes sense, right- since laws don't stop all crime there's no need for them.
basically the NRA is against ANY new gun-control laws, regardless of how much support they might have with the country as a whole.
***Why are there four threads here about guns? ***
Why have you commented on every one of them? You're complaining about the overlords distracting us with message board threads, and you've contributed to them ad nauseam.
***what is supposed to be a God given right to defend oneself and family.***
I'm sorry, where in the Bible does it guarantee the right to own firearms? Could you point out the chapter and verse? Or is God speaking to you again through the conductors on your anti-Luciferian gamma ray deflector helmet?
***as they determine the appropriate background and mental health of gun applicants.***
If only there were a mental health requirement for this message board.
***I comment because I am.***
Because I am... what? Paranoid? Delusional? Symptomatic of the very problem you're complaining about?
***There's no way we're gonna resurrect the natural or God given rights implied by the Constitutiuon argument again.***
Particularly since the fact that gods don't exist pretty much eviscerates the argument. But you resurrected it, not me.
***It's the view of many that the state can not infringe on those rights.***
It's also the view of many that the bodies of first-graders shouldn't be ripped to shreds by high-caliber, military-grade ammunition. Many also believe that even liberty has to have limits; as the old saying goes, "The right to swing your fist ends where the other man's nose begins."
***Our government already denies many vets with PTSD from owning guns and also non violent felons.***
TYRANTS! Denying the God-given right of the mentally unstable and recidivist criminals to brandish lethal weapons! Next they'll be telling us we can't stockpile plutonium in our basement crawlspaces! To arms! To arms! SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS!
