The generations of men may be considered as bodies or corporations. Each generation has the usufruct of the earth during the period of its continuance. When it ceases to exist, the usufruct passes on to the succeeding generation free and unencumbered and so on successively from one generation to another forever. We may consider each generation as a distinct nation, with a right, by the will of its majority, to bind themselves, but none to bind the succeeding generation, more than the inhabitants of another country." --Thomas Jefferson to John Wayles Eppes, 1813.

I have no rational argument against universal background checks and banning assault style weapons and large capacity magazines so I'll try to spin it as an attack on our freedoms.

I'm not following your logic. How is this related to the topic, or did you mean to start a new thread?

Thomas Jefferson wrote:
Every constitution, then, and every law, naturally expires at the end of nineteen years. If it be enforced longer, it is an act of force, and not of right. It may be said, that the succeeding generation exercising, in fact, the power of repeal, this leaves them as free as if the constitution or law had been expressly limited to nineteen years only. In the first place, this objection admits the right, in proposing an equivalent. But the power of repeal is not an equivalent. It might be, indeed, if every form of government were so perfectly contrived, that the will of the majority could always be obtained, fairly and without impediment. But this is true of no form. The people cannot assemble themselves; their representation is unequal and vicious. Various checks are opposed to every legislative proposition. Factions get possession of the public councils, bribery corrupts them, personal interests lead them astray from the general interests of their constituents; and other impediments arise, so as to prove to every practical man, that a law of limited duration is much more manageable than one which needs a repeal." --Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, 1789.

If you are going to try and "Play Relevant", the least you can do is apply the stuff you Google Search in its proper place.

I know you read this Quote misused on some Ignorant Demokrat Blog somewhere, but just because those Sheeple were idiots, does not mean that you should double down on the idiocy.

YOU and your "folks" assume no responsibility for anything.YOU are a Victim, and thus held harmless.

But as an Entitled Amerikan YOU feel that YOU can call for others to accept the responsibility that You and your "folk" never have......Demokrats!

When one of your children, cousins, or other decedents of Kings and Queens of Africa slaughter their neighbors on a daily basis, do you stand in the streets and demand that justice be done to the Responsible Individual? Do you demand that your Masters on your Demokrat Plantation hold them responsible......Nope!

Master Barry will not hold himself to a level of Responsibility that he demands from ALL,(except those that ARE responsible for their choices to kill their cousins in da hood).

And We let You vote!
