  •  I am not necessarily for that, but their absolute (13+ / 0-)

    refusal to compromise at all, will end up making it necessary.

    They will not accept registration, licensing, or waiting to get their guns.

    They insist on it being totally easy to buy and cary guns

    Somehow they think if we trust have mental health treatment that it will be OK to make it easy for psychos to get guns.

    Personally, the RKBA people and their insistence on supplying guns to whoever wants them are becoming accomplices to these crimes. They can HR the hell out of me for it too, that's not going to take away the truth.

    •  They are accomplices, and it's time to say it. (12+ / 0-)

      Not in a legal way, but in a political one, which in my opinion is worse, because it has broader consequences.

      You have exactly 10 seconds to change that look of disgusting pity into one of enormous respect!

    •  Exactly !!!!! (7+ / 0-)

      So we should realize we are living in a warzone.
      The answer is not more weapons.  The answer is more treatment, more jobs and dammit..less war !!!!!!!!!! Damn I am mad and probably will get Hr'd.  Don't care. Truth is truth.

    •  Post above reminds us that knives are regulated (3+ / 0-)

      Agamemnon's wife already reminded above us that it's illegal to carry a switchblade. States and cities can all regulate knives by length, how they're deployed, how they're carried and where you can bring them.

      And just try walking down the street with a pike, a scythe or a stick with nails poking out of it. Try wrapping the cut off handle end off a baseball bat in electrical tape, and carrying it on your belt. No money in those, so no big lobby protecting them.

      How about explosives? As far as I can tell, I can carry as much explosives around town as I want, as long as it's all been packaged into shells. Loading your own shells is tolerated, but continuously forking money over to the big ammunition makers feels like it might help prevent a bigger FBI file. If I want to experiment with explosive formulations for a startup business idea, blast some rocks on a ranch, or just amuse myself with amateur pyrotechnics, then I'd need all kinds of licenses and material tracking.

      How about cryptography that's reserved for government-approved uses? Shouldn't anything dangerous to authority fall under the same protection today as squirrel guns did in 1787?
