  •  Never claimed they would. (4+ / 0-)

    They are just examples of why I don't trust what the government would do with registration information.

    I will assume you aren't particularly enamored with the things on my list. But it seems that if the target is gun owners you would be just fine with such actions.

      against gun owners? I don't understand why you say that.

      •  Sorry, I wasn't very clear. (4+ / 0-)

        And my opinion probably has less to do with you specifically than it has to do with what I see as a prevailing attitude here on DKos.

        It seems to me that if the actions taken by the government in my list were solely directed at gun owners that not too many people here would have a problem with that.

          Being in favor of gun control and being in favor of tyranny against gun owners are two different things.

            the RKBA group and other comments about firearm owners a basis for my opinion.

            •  That's pretty hyperbolic (0+ / 0-)

              Unless you can show me.

                I see. You protect the constitution by shooting. Thanks for that. If you didn't go shooting, why we probably wouldn't even be able to masturbate.
                At some point, I believe a violent statist will need to take charge of the issue and suppress the gun freaks with drone strikes and be done with it. Probably after one of your bretheren breaks into a maternity ward and shoots up a bunch of infants. That'll be the last straw methinks.

                Somehow, I think the Constitution will be alright with a disarmed public.

                Today in a diary, it was implied that owning a 30 magazine was to equivalent to owning child pornography.
                Take your pick, 2nd Amendmenters... 10 years old? 13? 6? You like that freedom?

                There. Child porn is the equivalent of 30-round magazines. Some things are not acceptable. Even Constitutional Rights have sensible limits.

                Did you miss the comments from people calling to ban the RKBA group? Without fail there are references that gun owners are mentally unstable and that gun owners are compensating for small penises. Of course if you don't wade into gun diaries all that often you may not be aware of this.
