    Or ammunition magazines?  It's right to require them for guns, but why not the agents and carriers of injury and death?  The more checks the better.

      the Second Amendment doesn't say anything about whether those arms that we have a right to bear must have bullets or not (of course the real reason for that is that people made their own bullets back then, but I'd be fine with homemade bullets, at least they are better - really worse - in terms of being less lethal.

      Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.
