ID is required to purchase a firearm from a retailer. Would you agree that the poorest among us is being denied the right of self protection based on not having an ID?
Currently I am researching several sources for how many people do not have ID, and only looking at it for US Citizens over the age of 18. And seeing how many States will provide an ID for those who legitimately can't afford one.
Just to be fair about our earlier Exchange on this issue.
I bring this point up with liberals all the time. I go one step further. Since they think the disenfranchised voter with no ID should be able to vote with an electric bill I ask them if they should be able to buy a gun with an electric bill also...of course they get flustered and say no...you should have an ID to buy a gun and a background check should be done. I agree with them and say thats how I feel about voting and since they are both rights why do they have a problem with having to produce an ID to vote but not having a problem with having to produce an ID to buy a gun. I would think the right to self defense is just as important as the right to vote. But they have no answer.

The problem is emotions. Some people have hate for anyone who does not agree with thier emotional arguement. And the hate comes from the ones who claim to care.

For me the arguement comes down to civil rights and personal responsibility.

Moron/liberals cant understand that.........

They think a lady has the right to kill her baby as it is being born but I dont have a right to own a gun

They believe that no ID is needed to vote but you need ID to even purchase ammo.....

I love talking to gun gnutters face to face.
I can tell them to their face that they are pathetic cowards with very tiny dicks.
And I show them parts of state laws that I help change that makes it harder to buy and sell their toys.
And if they don't like it: there's nothing between me and them but the air.
Americans are tired of you tiny dicks demanding special rights.
Tick tock.
Yeah right. They wouldn't argue with because they are afraid you are so old you might get stressed out and die of a stroke.

Yes - the personal choice to sleep with whomever we wish - and feel undiscriminated again for that choice - should be the right of all people in this Land of the Free.
Unless of course the person you choose to sleep with is married to someone else and that spouse now wants to paint a target on your adulterous butt so he/she can zero in his/her new AR-15.

I am not a Jew, but I take your moniker to be a poor representation of the pro gun side. Jews were singled out for gun control in the past and pages a heavy cost.

Jfpo . Com is a Jewish site fighting for the civil and natural right of self defense for all people.

It is absurd, racist and just plain ignorant to judge any ethnic group for the actions of a few.

Alan Gura is Jewish and he is Responsible the two SCOTUS cases of District of Columbia v. Heller & McDonald v. Chicago which both were victories for Gun Owners of America and especially with the McDonald v. Chicago SCOTUS case which Alan Gura got the SCOTUS to incorporate the 2nd Amendment which was the last amendment of the US Constitution's Bill of Rights to be incorporated down to the State Level which the Anti Gun groups didn't like which now is a right in all 50 states because of the ruling in McDonald v. Chicago in 2010.

Alan Gura

Gura was born in Israel and came to the United States with his family when he was 7, settling in Los Angeles.

Gura graduated from Cornell University and the Georgetown University Law Center. He was admitted to the State Bar of California in 1995.

I agree, except Judaism is a religion, not a race. But they have freedom of religion, just like the rest of us here. They also have the rest of the rights we supposedly possess, as long as they are US citizens.
I'm not trying to push my religion on anyone, but if one is familiar with Christianity, one knows that the Jews are GOD's chosen people. Those who oppose them or combat them, fall to them.
