  •  What this all tells me is: Dialog (0+ / 0-)

    with Gunners is next-to-impossible --

    Compromise and Concession are pretty pointless ... all it does is weaken your position -- and there will be no reciprocal accommodation.

    I guess that's why President Obama WILL try to negotiate with Vladimir Putin and not with House Republicans. He knows the difference between "unlikely" and "hopeless."

    Similarly: Gunners ...  you can't negotiate with the "One Way, My Way" kind of guy.

    But, just remember:  Anton Scalia can't live forever.

    As of now there  IS an near-absolute and individual right to keep and bear arms  (local government permitting). However, there is NO equivalent constitutional right to manufacture or SELL firearms.

    And THAT's why eventually, ...  and for much the same reasons ...  we'll get the same sort of de facto ban on ugly guns and large magazines that we now have on switchblade knives.  (Local law permitting you can manufacture or own them all you like ... "introducing  (them)  "into interstate commerce" is a whole other kettle of fish.

    There's no reason you  can't hunt deer and bear with bows, knives and bare hands -- like the First Americans did.

     

    •  There's also no reason why one can't hunt with a (0+ / 0-)

      gun.

      Despite........whatever that post is, guns are a Right & hunting with firearms is legal.

      Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.
