You'll never get it. It has nothing to do with weapons. It has everything to do with government taking away constitutionally quaranteed rights.@ Vdoc, where do you get this ideal that the government wants to "disarm" the American people? I haven't read anything that alludes to a fundamental disarmament of the American people who DO NOT have a violent felony conviction. Limiting the number of round a magazine holds, or increasing the price of ammo is not disarming citizens.
There's enough guns in the country that could probably reach the east coast to the west coast butt to barrel tip! The puplic are still buying guns and ammo and are on waiting list for the manufacturer to ship more hardware to the stores.
What is the paranoia all about? I'm sure those of you who post here daily about 2nd amendment, have plenty of weapons off your choice! Hell, the beef should be for those who can't buy or own a weapon for self protection because of a hiccup on their record decades in the past. Those people have more of a dog in the fight than you people who are crying about shyt you already possess.
In my opinion you're just whining. If the Feds try to take your weapons, then that's a legitimate gripe. Other than that, you're blowing hot air in your anger of the Black liberal in chief.
Then you have a slippery slope as to which right they will take next.
Obamacare, the government forcing the individual to purchase a product or service, is unconsitutional. Therefore, SCOTUS could only enforce it by renaming it as a 'tax.'
Liberals want the government to supply everything to them equally, therefore they see no harm in the intrusion of government into their lives. When it becomes government oppression, and it will, they will be the ones squealing the loudest. Or when the money runs out, which ever comes first. I think the latter.
