I'm sure it is INCREDIBLY EASY for you to make repeated errors. You prove it with just about every post. LOL
Based on your opinion, I'm sure it could look that way.

Yes, I have been given that opportunity.

But as I said, I can't refute your opinion. You can have as many of those as you like.

But don't worry. I don't consider it unusual.
LOL. I am actually glad you brought up Voter ID. Since you don't feel it necessary to prove who you are in order to exercise your right to vote, why should anyone have to not only show TWO forms of ID, but also fill out a form and go through a background check in order to exercise another constitutional right?

Hypocrite much???

lol! You see son that's where you're wrong. I have no issues with voter ID. I would encourage it.

The problem is these conservatively run states don't provide reasonable options for those who don't have ID's to vote.

It's rather curious that you want the federal government to intercede on states rights.

But regardless, I've pretty much quashed your position that' I'm against ID's, which pretty much shows it's your prejudice that's the inhibitor.

I know I am, thank you.

“I won't try to refute what you "believe" to be "facts."

I know you won’t “try”, because you can’t. Here are a couple more "facts" for you to attempt to “poo, poo” off as my “opinion”...which they are not...so there you go...go “poo, poo”...then GFY.

“Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y., speaking during a radio interview, stated that in implementing new gun control measures, confiscation of guns is on the table for consideration. The governor's statement would mark the first time a major elected official has broached the subject of forced seizure of citizens' firearms.”

Missouri House Bill 545

(1) Remove the assault weapon or large capacity magazine from the state of Missouri;
(2) Render the assault weapon permanently inoperable; or
(3) Surrender the assault weapon or large capacity magazine to the appropriate law enforcement agency for destruction, subject to specific agency regulations.
5. Unlawful manufacture, import, possession, purchase, sale, or transfer of an assault weapon or a large capacity magazine is a class C felony.

It in fringes on my rights when you and your mentally disturbed tiny-dicked associates insist you need assault weapons to carry into your kindergarten teachers conferences.
It in fringes on my rights when you and your mentally disturbed tiny-dicked associates insist you need to be able to sell your toys to your inbred cousins and neighbors and not care a damn whether or not they are psychopaths or convicted felons.
Your toys, Mo, are my business unless you promise to have it surgically attached to your wrist and promise never to leave your house.
Of course, that wouldn't help your wife.
Has any gun owner bent over and dropped a gun and brought ANY harm to you? If not then your rights are not violated. Do you personally know of his gun ever getting stolen and used in any crime? If not then your rights have not been violated. Do you attend kindergarten meetings? If not then your rights have not been violated. Do you know of him or any of his friends that have sold a gun to any psychopaths or felons and ANY crime committed against you with these guns? If not then your rights have not been violated. Has any way he keeps or carries his gun effected you in any way? If not then your rights have not been violated. If you can't answer yes to these claims then every word you posted was a lie.

Would you approve of a background check before being allowed to vote? Would you approve requiring a permit and paying a large fee for that permit before being allowed to vote? Would you approve of if voting fraud were proven by anyone in this country that the right to vote be removed or at least limited to minor elections and with a permit and background check first?

Why do you try and equate voting to owning a gun?

Or are you now allowing votes to be bought and exchanged or even turned in for others to eliminate?

Gun laws in the US are so f-ing ridicules, it is actually far easier to buy a gun then it is to by a puppy or even cough medicine. Buying a gun in much of America can be as simple as forking over the cash, with no questions asked and no background check. In fact, it is much more of a hassle to buy over the counter medication than it is to purchase a firearm. A small handful of state legislatures are making an effort to change that by pushing for more effective gun laws that will actually do something. Gun laws vary dramatically from state to state, in Texas for example, there is no waiting period and no state gun registration system it is like buying candy. Federal law requires that all licensed firearms dealers (the US has more fire arms dealers than grocery stores) conduct background checks, but the restriction doesn't apply to private sales and gun shows where they are simply ignored. The NRA, which went from a benevolent and useful organization to high powered lobbying machine spreading falsehoods and lies, has been holding the country hostage for many years . . .

Simple. Both are rights. As with guns, anyone violating or misusing that right should have it removed by the proper means (in court) where they have the RIGHT to defend themselves and their actions before a jury of their peers and that misuse must be proven. However like ALL rights ONLY those who misuse their rights should be up for review or punished for their actions. Now answer the question. Would you approve of other rights being treated as gun rights are?
