Quote:People's right to own guns or the march towards unrestricted access is more important than people's lives.
Quote:This seems to be the problem. Maybe its being brain washed but I admit to not intrinsically liking the idea of preventing private citizens from purchasing guns.
Quote:My point was not that people should not be able to buy guns. It is that there should be some common sense, IMO, things in place to make sure that nothing shady is happening. Guns are part of some people's lives. Great, but we should all be for safe ownership.
Quote:Guns are a tool, but a very dangerous one. A hammer is a tool too but can be used for varying functions other than violence. A gun's point is violence. Be it an animal or breaking a target or whatever. If it makes some people feel safer, than fine, but we need to acknowledge they are dangerous and owning one is a responsibility as much as anything.
Quote:Just seems anything that can be done to help make the path for questionable folks getting access is a step to take. We can disagree as to what is reasonable, but to me somebody having to wait a few more minutes or something is worth it.
Quote:But some of the pro-gun movements just leave me in shock. The anger over say the 3-day wait (for a background check) after purchasing a gun and actually receiving it left me baffled...If you (not you you )cannot wait 3-days to get your gun then you are just the person who should have to wait 3-days if not forever.
Quote:Yeah, I would agree. I think there are a fair number of things that could be done but are apparently a minor set back to some average Joe getting a gun faster.
But this falls apart when you realize that you can buy a rifle or shotgun and take it home on day one. A deadly bullet ( or pellets) to the chest is still a bullet to the chest.
Also, I am against the 3 day wait for handguns as I view it as a hamper to my 2A rights. No other reason than that. No sinister motives, I just feel it shouldn't be hampered or suppressed.
