And if you do register your gun in NY?

You could get some lefty moron reporter/rag doing this:

Two weeks ago, the paper published the names and addresses of handgun permit holders — a total of 33,614 — in two suburban counties, Westchester and Rockland, and put maps of their locations online. The maps, which appeared with the article “The Gun Owner Next Door: What You Don’t Know About the Weapons in Your Neighborhood,”

Gun owners in the counties were pissed and so were the non-gun owners.

The founding fathers were also law breakers.

Rosa Parks was a law breaker.

MLK was a law breaker.

The Freedom Riders were law breakers.

Harriet Tubman was a law breaker.

I will say that at the very least, you have to give the author of that editorial some credit where it's due. They were:

A.) Talking about a change in policy that would actually have a dramatic effect, unlike band-aid solutions such as "universal background checks" which will, in all likelyhood, do little to nothing at all. In other words, they are making proposals that are actually worthy of a discussion, whether you agree with them or not, and

B.) they put everything out on the table and were actually being honest about wanting to take guns away from people.. They didn't feed us the old familiar LIE that "no one wants to take your guns away" ...I have to say that honesty from a gun control advocate are rare and should be commended.

What are you not understanding about the word LIBERATION? The liberation of Iraq was Clinton's call, not Bush's. Why do liberals always try to rewrite history to exonerate the actions of Dems? /SMH

Death by firing squad. Sounds fair to me.
No, that is against the 8th amendment.

In order to execute someone for crimes against individuals, it must be shown they have killed someone. Otherwise, the punishment of death is excessive.

Go ahead and lock up 40% of the American population.

Better yet, go into Redneckland and try to take their guns away yourself, tough guy.

You didn't ask that question, you stated that AR style firearms should be banned. The three examples I posted operate exactly the same way the AR style ones do. Which one would you ban?




You want to ban certain ones because of cosmetics (a the second exemplar I posted can do much more damage in a shorter period of time than an AR style firearm).


Since we're banning things because of cosmetics I think the new Camaro should be banned. They're butt ugly.
