  •  Its not paranoia (6+ / 0-)

    It happened, as kestrel just showed.  Gun owners were told they could keep their guns, then the government reversed course and used the registration list to compel confiscation.  That is exactly what gun owners are afraid of.

    Don't change the subject.  You made a challenge and it was met.  Acknowledge it.

    There is truth on all sides. The question is how much.

    •  I'm not sure kestrel showed anything. (2+ / 0-)

      Not intentionally, that I am sure of, but the story doesn't quite add up in its particulars and certainly not in the conclusions being drawn.

      The law in question was passed, but Lexis isn't giving me any news stories like the one he posted. Not one. That's not probative, but also not a good indication of veracity.

      What I am seeing, aside from the pro-gun site he cited, is a lot of links to known wingnut sites like FR and WND. Legitimate media, none, government agencies, none.

      I'm going to look into this further, because I do believe in serious argument, but I'm not certain this is one.

      They're not "assault weapons"; just call them "Freedom Sparklers".
