So you want to ban 90% or more of the guns people own today.
Dude. You. Are. Paranoid.
And yes while the odds of me, or you getting murdered in one of these massacres is statistically low. Replace the pronoun with "loved one" and the odds increase, albeit by very little. Replace "loved one" with "acquaintance" and the odds go up more. Replace acquaintance with "child" and now we're talking bigger odds here. Replace child with "innocent person" and I'd say that yes, definitively, the odds of an innocent person being murdered in a shooting massacre is higher than the US government suddenly trying to take over. This isn't just about protecting my own ass. It's the general principle.
Long Live JYD
And you have the nerve to say I'm the paranoid one, lol.
The government has been stripping away rights and freedoms for some time now. If you think it's unlikely to happen, while it's happening and been happening for years, you're much worse than paranoid.
One could even make the argument that you're actually part of the problem, since you're here promoting the degradation and stripping of constitutional rights, and somehow acting like it's any of your business what products I keep in my own home.
OBEEZY is A commie
or much worse hahahahahaha
I, HeavenHarris, hereby pledge to my fellow JFC'rs that I will no longer give out neg-reps. All it does is cause negative things, like fights, drama, bitching, ill will, bad feelings, etc.
Love, not hate, is the answer bros and moes.
LOL Lol breaks his pledge 5 days later hahahaha
There's a lot I don't like about the government, but I refuse to buy into these totalitarian nightmare delusions. I understand the need for checks and balances outside of the government system, but where I won't agree is that somehow mass and uninhibited gun ownership is the only way to do this.
I also don't get is where you got this idea that you're allowed to do whatever you want regardless of how it impacts other people. So is it none of my business if you're keeping anthrax in your home? Or if you decide to purchase a wrecking-ball without any idea how to use one? Like it or not you're in a social contract with everyone else in society. It's like the person who bitches because they get fined for letting their yard grow out of control, like it or not the look of your yard affects other persons' property value. I get it, you're a strict libertarian, but there's rules to how this thing operates.
I don't give a **** if you have a handgun. I don't care if you have a hunting rifle, a shotgun or a mother****ing crossbow. I do care if you didn't have to get thoroughly checked out before you were allowed to own those things, and if you have weapons with more capability then you'd ever hope of utilizing for any conceivable practical purpose. And this paranoid attitude that is rearing its ugly head more and more over the course of this debate has me concerned as well.
Yes, I think I should be allowed to buy drones, tanks, etc, if the police have them. As long as the police have them, I should be able to get them too. If the police aren't allowed to have them, then that's another story. But if the police have them, then I should absolutely be able to buy them too.
You don't get why I think I should be able to do whatever I want as long as I'm not hurting anyone else? Um, should I welcome you to America? Lol, this is the land of the free, that's why I think we should be free.
Yes, I absolutely should be able to purchase a wrecking ball, whether I know how to use it or not. If I damage your property with it, then I should obviously be liable for that. If I don't damage your property with it, then it's none of your business whether I own a wrecking ball or not.
I'm torn on the lawn thing. Yes, I think I should be allowed to let my yard get as ugly as I want. However, if it causes my neighbor's property value to go down then I should probably be liable for that. Or maybe not, maybe they should be free to move away from me if they don't like it. I don't know about that one. It's not an issue in my neighborhood though, it's kind of a contest to have the nicest yard, so I haven't really thought about that too much.
The yard thing is different than what I have hidden in my house, though. You can see my yard from my neighbor's house, you can't see the inside of my safe. What I have in that safe is none of your business. If I cause some harm to you with whatever I had in that safe, THEN it becomes your business.
This is America, you can't seriously be attempting to punish me for a crime that will probably never be committed. And make no mistake, telling me I can no longer buy certain things that I like absolutely is a punishment.
The capability of my weapons is none of your business. If I do something wrong with one of those weapons, then you might have a reason to restrict what weapons I can have. But until then, what I do, and what I own, is none of your business. That's not me being paranoid. Paranoid is you telling me that it's okay for you to be all up in my business, restricting my rights, in order to prevent a crime that even you admit is extremely unlikely to ever be committed by or against anyone that either of us will ever meet.
Have fun talking to police in case you buy to much fertilizer.
Have fun being hit with a criminal record if you are a CC permit holder and take your gun to the wrong state.
Have fun being an immigrant and being held indefinately.
State and Federal police can now search a home or business without an order or even the owners knowledge that they are searching under certain conditions.
Have fun having your financial records being searched thru without your knowledge or consent.
All allowable under the law now and in clear violation of our rights. You want to talk about paranoid? Fine, but pull your damn head out of the sand first.
No, I do not think that they will ban guns and when I wake up tomorrow I will see Brown Shirts in my town telling people when they can move about, how much food they can buy and who they can talk to. However I do think that you will continue to see a systematic and gradual reducing of our rights until the people stop it. We cans top it thru voting and opposing uncosntitutional measures thru the courts and having them repealed.
Bought a ticket for a runaway train
Like a madman laughing at the rain
Little out of touch, little insane
It's just easier than dealing with the pain.
Runaway train, never comin' back
Runaway train, tearin' up the track
Runaway train, burnin' in my veins
