As a person of principle let me be very clear to any "conservatives" who troll the Kos for proof that liberals want to take away thier guns. Here you go conservatives: We liberals really do want to take away your guns and never let you have them back.
If your gun is an UZI
If you are using a gun with an extended clip...we want to take your gun
If you are concealing a high powered automatic weapon designed to best law enforcement...we want to take your gun away from you.
If you are a mentally unstable student or postal worker...we want your gun right now!
If you are currently intoxicated with alchohol or some other drug...give us your gun, right now.
If you have a criminal record...you may not have a gun, hand it over and never ask for it back
If you are angry at your spouse and it's a hot summer night and you just stumbled into a gun shop...You may not buy a gun today, you must wait 72 hours from today to buy your gun so go to a hotel/motel and think about what we just saved you from...we don't want you to have a gun!!
If you are a hunter who likes to get up at 4AM to sit in a wet cold duck blind with your buddy - have at it, you may keep your gun.
If you are a Tea Partier who subscribes to various conspiracy leaflets and you just need to have a gun locked up in your house in case the bogey man comes to get you...you may keep your gun
If you are a freaky history buff who collects Civil War guns and knives...you may keep your stupid antique guns but there is a reason you are single pal
If you are a single woman (for example) and you feel you need a gun for reasonable self defense...please take a good class on how to properly shoot and secure your weapon. We hope you never EVER have to use the weapon but we respect your wishes to protect yourself and would NEVER make a law preventing you from reasonably doing so.
Bottom line, as a person of principle, not an etch a sketch faux varmint hunter, let me be clear, you can keep a gun to hunt, you can keep a reasonable handgun to protect your property and person, and you can keep your goofy gun collections but you MAY NOT HAVE SICKO GUNS DESINGED TO DO NOTHING OTHER THAN KILL PEOPLE!!!! We liberals want to take THOSE GUNS away. We really do!
I think you can see that we liberals reasonably want to respect the rights of gun owners. So why don't you so called "principled" conservatives start respecting our right to walk down the street without the fear of some crazed gunman shooting a child because he was carrying a concealed bag of skittles?
Where are your principles conservatives? Where is your human decency?
