Obama is so moderate that I can hardly tell the difference between him and Bush. Who is the extreme left in control of our gov't?
well, you have a good sense of humor
i assume you are talking about the AZ law. i'll have to assume you have not read it and are also not familiar with federal immigration law.
let me ask you: if the current govt could outlaw the private ownership of guns with no fear of backlash, do you think they would do it? again i am making the assumption that you are familiar with the positions of those in govenment.......if not, you may look up each and their positions on gun control. most have made their positions public, including often introducing legislation to limit ownership of guns.
I have a GREAT sense of humor, and recognition of sarcasm :)
I have not read the AZ law. My point is that while some people hate gov't intervention, what they really hate is gov't intervention in SOME things and they really want it in OTHER things.
I think your last question is a moot point. There WOULD be backlash. By people owning things that kill other people. In a county where guns have been a part of our lives since its inception. That said, should EVERYone own guns? And use them wherever, whenever and however they want? I don't think so. I think with rights come responsibility. And since irresponsibility with guns leads to death, some people should be controlled in their "rights" to own a gun. To your question, yes, I'm sure some politicians would like to see guns banned. Probably some politicians would like to belong to the KKK, legalize marijuana, ban beekeeping, or allow sex change operations to be covered by taxpayer dollars. So what? That doesn't mean it's going to happen.
Since you used the car analogy, that would apply here also. We don't freak over speed limits, seatbelt laws, vehicular homicide leading to consequences, etc. We don't get paranoid that the next step is having our cars taken away. And guns have been part of American's lives since before cars.
I guess my suggestion would be to vote for those who protect the rights you want, use your guns responsibly and fight tooth and nail any legislation that makes you feel like your rights are encroached upon.
