But, there are also those who claim to own weapons on a soon-to-be-banned list who will refuse to give them up--hence choosing criminality.<quoted text> Everyone knows that's a code word for black male with gun (BMG). Even the term 'criminal' is used to take people's rights away. For example, if a person owns a business, pays state, city, and federal taxes, has a mortgage, kids in college, owns a vehicle, is married, attends church weekly, served in jury duty,ect. but did something stupid in his youth. He has a record of violating some law. He cannot own a firearm, and in the eye's of the stupid and brainwashed, he is still labeled a 'criminal' for a crime he paid for 30 years ago!
This kind of thinking is what many blacks are faced with, millions of blacks and whites, across this country. They are still considered Criminals. And their 2nd amendment right is denied for life. None of these cowards on here will rally against that.
Further, if registration is required, and "law-abiding gun owners" (AKA the good guys in white hats) refuse registration, then this could also render them criminal gun owners.
Can't help but think that if it were the kids in Hilliard, Dublin, Upper Arlington and the like hiding guns in their lockers or shooting each other on the way home from school, or getting hit by stray bullets that some of these gun-lovers might feel differently about whether or not there is a problem, not to mention what the solution might be.
