Nope! Want a howitzer, get one. Never know when those red commies are gonna try rolling tanks down the street.

Well, maybe no nukes, Not without a certification of knowing how to handle and store one.

Do you need to pass a test to buy a car? Do you have to prove you know how to clean it?

Yeah, why cant we have hand grenades? Oh right cause they are not for sale on the open market, and that sticky little point about them not being a firearm.

And FYI 99 percent of gun owners are responsible and safe with them, and I challenge you to find a stat that states differently.

I also think no one needs an assault weapon and that's my opinion and I'm keeping it. Who is anyone to tell me what my opinion should be?
Why can't you have hand grenades? It's just a thing. It's the person who uses it is the dangerous part. Now lob a few of those babies to whomever is threatening you and that'd stop 'em!:)
I do know people want their guns. They should be well versed in how to take care of them, though, and how to handle them safely.

What part of "shall not be infringed" are you not getting? As any originalist will tell you, the 2A does not distinguish between automatic weapons and nuclear weapons. It's not a living document to be interpreted by activist liberal judges. Just everyone else but.

I sure hope your abstaining from shellfish, by the way! The Lord frowns upon this. Check your money, it'll tell you that we are a Christian nation as our founders intended.

Thanks for the info, and I'm loving your typos lately.
:)

I could get a 4 for free, but I haven't had a new phone in almost 4 years. I want the latest & greatest this time!:) And I have that $150 gift card from our holiday party last week burning a hole in my wallet.

Heh. Smelling. Oops.

I hate my new phone so much that I'm thinking of getting the Galaxy S3, which is on sale at Tmobile for only $99. I think Nick paid $300 for his.

Jasper paid $200 for his. He's very non-techie and loves it though, if that helps.

It's kinda funny that the right to bear arms argument is evolving into the right bear howitzers, hand grenades, and nuclear weapons.

Race, you need a drivers license to buy a car, so yes, you DO need to pass a test in order to buy one. Only in Illinois do you need a firearm card to purchase guns and ammo. And in every other state (accept Alaska) you need a permit to carry a firearm. You need to take a course and prove you can handle it on the shooting range.

PE, your insurance idea is unconstitutional and will NEVER fly, so get off it already.

Toj and Ange, maybe someone doesn't "need" an assault rifle, but people also don't "need" an ipad, ipod, or ugg boots, so what's your point?

Oh, and Angela, why don't YOU evolve already and get a smartphone?

But DO you need a driver's license to buy a car? Shouldn't unlicensed mom be able to buy a car for her licensed adult child if she wants?

Oh, and you can't compare an assault rifle to an ipad, ipod, etc. The rifle has one purpose: To kill. The others have one purpose: To pass one's time while on the toilet.

I just googled. You don't need a license to buy a car. You need one to drive it off the lot, though.

Not for nothing, but you don't need any kind of permit/license/card/whatever to purchase and bear arms in Washington state unless it's concealed carry which of course needs its own thing. No safety or training stuff either. Not for adults anyway...idk what the rules are pertaining to minors other than no hand guns.

Well, you got me there. But I have to believe that if the founders were aware of mustard gas and nukes, they may have tried to be a little more explicit, but what do I know.

Please post a link to needing a license to buy a car. Not Drive a car, but simply to purchase one. Uber wealthy have limo drivers, its their job to have a license not the guy riding in the back.

I got the S 3 in July. It is fun but I know it has way more capabilties than I use or am likley to use in the future. It was my 1st smarphone. If I were to replace it today I would get the S2 and pay less money.

I paid $199 for the S3 with a 2 year contract on Verizon

That might very from state to state. Not really sure. But, like private gun sales, you selling a car to Joe Schmo, you aren't required to see if he has a license, just cash.

They can here. The car must be insured to go on the road, the driver of the car must be insured, but the owner need not have a license or even know how to drive as long as they don't.

Oh for Godssake you people are picky. Okay fine, you don't need a license to "buy" a car, but you need one to "operate" one. Now what the hell were we talking about again?
