  •  there's no difference between (0+ / 0-)

    forbidding the transfer of heirlooms between generations, and kicking down doors for them today.  They are both confiscation.

    "with rights come responsibilities." Wrong. Responsibilities continue to exist even if you abdicate your rights.

    •  Anyone who thinks a background check (0+ / 0-)

      is confiscation is either an idiot or intentionally feeding bullshit to idiots.   Or registration, for that matter.

      Well, the pro gun people used to pretend that they really wanted to keep guns out of the hands of the dangerously insane or criminals.  Now the truth is out, and we see that keeping guns out of the hands of the dangerously insane and criminals is the same as kicking down doors and confiscating guns.

      I'm always glad to see people dropping their pretenses.

      That's not even "gun control". It's more like "massacre control".

      •  Now you've finally dropped your pretenses (0+ / 0-)

        you want to have every single firearm, even family heirlooms, registered with the government.  That's even more extreme than Canada, ferfucksake, they abandoned the rifle registry last year.

        See?  I can twist your words just as well as you can twist mine.

        "with rights come responsibilities." Wrong. Responsibilities continue to exist even if you abdicate your rights.
