Here's is what I don't get.
Why does the "tricked out" aspect work to et these people to buy these guns. The mere thought that it works should be grounds for banning them.
"real dumb"
One more time you are honest. You say fuckthe constitution, ban all guns? Do not hold your breath, it ain't gonna happen.

Get over it. That doesn't infringe on anybody's constitutional rights any more than restrictions against yelling "fire" in a crowded theater or inciting riots.
If you have a problem with that, you're a mental case, and we'll take your guns away for being a mental case.
You can ban guns, box cutters, knifes, swords, scissors, sticks or stones and fertilizer. One will never disarm a deranged liberal..

Let's see how your logic looks when applied to this argument,

I would like to see background checks at every same-sex marriage.
I would like a ban on same-sex marriage.
I would like a ban limiting same-sex marriage to 10% acceptance rate.

Dr. Ben Carson on Tuesday accused critics of his stance on gay marriage of trying to completely shut down debate on the issue and called his white liberal critics “the most racist out there.”

In an appearance on the Mark Levin radio show, Carson said he represents an existential threat to gay marriage proponents, which is why attacks on his stance against gay marriage have been so vicious.

“They need to shut me up, they need to get rid of me. They can’t find anything else to delegitimize me, so they take my words, misinterpret them, and try to make it seem that I’m a bigot,” he said.

After Levin asked him about white liberals, Carson, who is black, said,“They’re the most racist people there are because they put you in a little category, a box. How could you dare come off the plantation?”

Liberals Fear: Black Conservatives, Facts and Truth!!
On March 25, I wrote a controversial post about Dr. Ben Carson (controversial because it wasn’t 100 percent positive) that ended thusly:

“…I fear that conservatives are actually doing Dr. Carson no favors by immediately granting him rock star status. Sure, he’s a brilliant doctor, but politics is different from everything else. No matter how smart you are, it takes time to grow into a political career as a politician or a pundit. And sadly, Dr. Carson has been deprived of that.”

Almost immediately after writing that, Dr. Carson become embroiled in controversy over comments that,“be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality,” the definition of marriage cannot be changed.

He subsequently went on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell (another interesting decision) to clarify his remarks. Additionally, National Review reported that a petition was distributed by Johns Hopkins students to have him removed as a commencement speaker.

Some conservatives will cheer this as evidence that Dr. Carson is speaking truth to power. But he could be a much more effective witness for his conservative beliefs were he to maintain his stature as a respected professional within the medical profession and academic community.

The last thing conservatives need is another red-meat-hurling political pundit. They’re a dime a dozen. We could easily pluck one from a “morning zoo” radio show tomorrow. What conservatism really needs is, I don’t know…a highly-respected African-American pediatric neurosurgeon who could lend credibility and seriousness to the cause.

The problem for Dr. Carson is that he seems to be trading in a highly-respected job to become a mere pundit. What is more, he hasn’t yet developed the ability to communicate his conservative message at a level his stature demands.(To be sure, there would be attacks on Dr. Carson no matter how safe he played it. Liberals will rightly view him as a threat. What I am proposing is that he not make their job any easier for them.)

Scalia. not an argument though. an opinion of the Court. DC v Heller.

more goodies....

We also recognize another important limitation on the right to keep and carry arms. Miller said, as we have explained, that the sorts of weapons protected were those “in common use at the time.”

We think that limitation is fairly supported by the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of “dangerous and unusual weapons.”

No, just like that didn't work for interracial marriage, it doesn't work for gay marriage.
Do you not realize you live in America?
Do you not realize gay people have the same God-given rights as everyone else?
Why should they be subjected to the whims of other people?
Ever hear of the tyranny of the majority stuff? Yeah, that's bad.
Nobody gets to take my rights away because I happen to be gay. Nobody should be voting on my rights - even in the states where we have won recently. Which of your rights are you willing to put up for a public vote?
Some of you don't even understand the great country in which we live and want to turn it into your personal likes and dislikes or your churches. That's not even smart, because it can be just as easily turned around on you.
Use your head. And think like a real American.
"Tony C"
You make a lot assumptions. Is that why you are such anass?
What gay folks do in the privacy of their bedrooms is none of my business and I could care less. That being said I am not for gay marriage, it is my right to disagree with gay marriage.
Interracial marriage bothers me not a wit. I know several interracial married couples good folks, have been to their homes and they to mine.
Why should I be subject to the whims of folks who would like to take away or restrict my right to own a firearm? Or to sell a firearm? Or to assemble with others of the same ilk.
Why should my right to not purchase a product, health care, that I may not want?
You should start thinking like a real American and understand that all do not agree with your stands. Do you realize that you live in an America where folks are permitted to have views that disagree with yours?
