When i got my FFL.. the agent I spoke with flat out told me... that there are so MANY laws in effect, that even they did not know them all. Those laws were conflicting and overlapping, and that if they wanted to find a violation, FIND something i was doing wrong, that they could, no matter how hard I tried not to.
We dont need more laws.
We already have so many they cannot be enforced. Misuse of guns, needs to end badly for the misuser. However, HOW, do you determine misuse? Defending yourself from criminals? Defending your family from criminals? Defending your country from government?
I am one of those people who DOES see both sides, I Understand why those of you who live in the cities may HATE guns... but that does not give you the right to take mine away. My guns have NEVER tried to jump off the shelf or out of the safe to hurt me, or anyone in the family, so why do you want to take them away from me?
They have never done anything wrong.
I have them trained well. I have taught them respect, and consideration. I have taught them safety. They never point at a person, loaded or empty. They never take the safety off until they are ready to be fired. They know enough to never be picked up in anger, but they also know.......,
One day, they may be needed in fear, and that all they have learned may HAVE to be set aside!
I believe I am an American, and that i have as much right to enjoy hunting, trap shooting, target practice, AND defending my home as YOU have to own a 55 Chevy with a supercharged big block in it, or a beehive.
A car that fast is dangerous, too much power, it might hurt someone, it should be outlawed!!... Beehives are DANGEROUS!!! Someone allergic may get stung and DIE so we NEED to outlaw beehives!!!!
Where do you draw the line? I know there are those of you out there that think that is just silly and stupid.. at one time i though someone taking my gun was silly and stupid..
Fact; I HAVE the ability to make a gun from scratch. you will not now, or ever completely disarm me. There are a LOT of people like me out there.
I believe, that I have as much right to own a gun, as YOU have to own toilet paper. We do not NEED either.. I have never needed any of my guns, and YOU have never NEEDED to use toilet paper. you have soap and water, you can wash your hands.
Weather its guns, a fast car, or beehives you enjoy as a hobby, I believe you have the right to those things so long as YOU do not abuse them. Could they be abused? Does that mean you should not have the right to own them?
I will not fight, and die for my right to own a beehive. I will not fight and die for my right to own a fast car. I will not fight, and die, for the ABILITY to buy, and use toilet paper.. I can wash my hands.
I will fight, and die to defend this country. . This country my grandfathers, uncles, and cousins fought for. Some even died for! I served, my son IS in the Army, and has been to Afghanistan. WE ALL believe/d in this country and our way of life.
"Protecting our rights to own guns IS SERVING OUR COUNTRY!"
We.. do not want to take away YOUR rights and freedoms, so we do not expect you to try to take ours.
If you do???
Well.. YOU are the one who dislikes guns and does not own any........
