Gun Law

how 'bout a ride

“Well Regulated”

~

I would like to argue in favor of potentially deadly firearms being treated on the same par as potentially dangerous privately-owned motor vehicles.  In other words, I am for federally-dictated state-run licensing, registration, and insurance requirements for gun ownership and utilization.  Of course, nobody who owns a firearm wants to do this.  I remember years ago I didn’t want to be forced to buy insurance for my car.  But when it became illegal not to do so, I did.  So go ahead, I’d like to see you keep a keen watch on our government ~ locked and loaded ~ and licensed registered insured…

2nd Amendment

~

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Gun Logic

~

I’ve noticed whenever a gun “expert” argues against gun regulation of any kind, that eventually, if not right away, their logic falls apart 2 or 3 times by the time they’ve made their point.
.
For example, when the celebrated National Rifle Association (NRA) spokesman, Wayne LaPierre, explains the uselessness of government gun buybacks, he says in a book he wrote, Shooting Straight, that some people are thus encouraged to steal guns to sell them.  I think he’s stretching logic like a rubber band here.  So I say, well, Wayne, lock-up the guns you want to keep during the gun buyback so that nobody steals them.  There you go: 1+1=2…

  1. “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, …”

    The introductory phrase is explanatory and in no way limits the right recognized in the 2nd Amendment. But today more and more at least part of the militia is people getting licenses or permits to carry a concealed handgun to protect themselves and the public.

    “I would like to argue in favor of potentially deadly firearms being treated on the same par as potentially dangerous privately-owned motor vehicles. In other words, I am for federally-dictated state-run licensing, registration, and insurance requirements for gun ownership and utilization.”

    While we are at it maybe we ought to allow the Federal government to license “deadly” expression of free speech. After all, people writing about the Zimmerman/Trayvon incident may trigger violence and riots when justice is finally done and Zimmerman is acquitted. Yes, the expression of free speech is dangerous and only licensed and fully accredited journalists should be be writing about events of great national importance.

    Obviously the Federal government believes this and is not wiretapping journalists (and Congress Critters) and using electronic “back doors” involving encryption to get at the contents of journalists laptops.

    Yea, anyone ought to see how the government ought to be able to do this. How else do you think they can figure out how to target individuals with drones?

    ” So go ahead, I’d like to see you keep a keen watch on our government ~ locked and loaded ~ and licensed registered insured…”

    I support the same safeguards for your mouth. 🙂

  2. Seems to me, it’s about the trust to be put in the state. For those who fully trust the government, that government has plenty of guns; nobody else should need any. As soon as any doubt creeps in, a state gun monopoly goes out. The Founders unequivocally distrusted the state.

    We know the state wants a disarmed public (they always have, in history) so it makes no sense to me, to facilitate that by handing over a list of who has what. I feel safer letting the government wonder…

    Insurance similar to cars: Then, are we not handing over our right to guns without government permission? The government decides who may drive a car and can…and does, revoke that. Might be tough for the insurers to price, too…

    The idea has some merit, but it makes me nervous!

Go ahead!
