Translation: I won't repeal the 2nd Amendment. I won't take away your guns. Here are some common sense regulations I'd like to implement. These are common sense gun laws and I am sure everybody would agree:

1. Go through a background check equivalent of top secret security clearance
2. Wait 90 days
3. Get approval from your local politicians
4. Have a valid reason determined by your local politicians
5. Pass a 20 hours course and an shooting test equivalent to a SWAT team test
6. Be part of a government approved gun club and maintain the membership
7. Register all your guns and pay a registration fee
8. Get a gun purchase license, gun transport license, gun storage license, ammunition license, magazine license, scope license, sight license etc...
9. Agree to allow federal and local LEO to inspect your home anytime unannounced
10. Have a registered GPS tracker on each of your firearm
11. Only purchase guns from a government approved gun list which only includes and limited to single shot muskets smaller than .22 caliber and airsoft.
12. Maintain an adequate insurance enough to cover a murder trial, say $500,000
13. Pay $200 tax for each gun you inherit or attempt to pass on to your heir, provided your heir has all the appropriate licenses.
14. Account for each ammunition you purchase as each bullet will be serialized and micro-stamped.
15. Store all your guns in government approved safes
16. Be liable for civil and criminal lawsuits if someone steals your gun and you don't report in 2 hours.
17. Render all your "magazine clips" to only accept one ammunition at a time by a government approved gunsmith. Anybody in possession of any magazine with capacity over 1 would be sentenced to 20 years without parole.
18. Limit to purchase 1 firearm each year
19. Limit to purchase 5 ammunition each month
20. Only keep 1 firearm per family member, if they have appropriate license, at home and all other firearms must be kept at the gun club or police station
21. All guns, existing or new, must be painted in pink by the manufacturer

There, the 2A is intact and you have your guns - I didn't even ban assault rifles, I mean assault weapon, I mean assault... You get my point.
banning hunting while you're at it?

Completely true. You may be Pro-2A but if you vote leftist/democrat, you are part of the problem in the infringement of 2A.

You can say, "Oh, I own guns and support 2A and vote democrat" and that's fine. But every single infringement of 2A in the U.S for the past 25 years has been, especially in states like California or NY, have been proposed and pushed forward by the Democrat party.

Just like registration for car owners. The criminals are the people who AREN'T on the list.

You know better than that why would you post nonsense like that?

Are the 'overwhelming majority of violent criminals' Democrats? Ted Cruz said so | PolitiFact

GOP House Candidate Claims 99 Percent of Mass Shooters are Democrats

Your link says Ted Cruz statement is actually based on "some fact" but the sample size of the report cited was too small (which is true).

But the facts are still eye opening:

Quote:
New York, about one-third of felons released from prison registered to vote after their release. Of those, about 62 percent registered as Democrats and 9 percent registered as Republicans, with 26 percent registering as independents or with other parties.

In North Carolina, about a quarter of those who were released registered after their release. Of those, 52 percent registered as Democrats, 19 percent as Republicans and 22 percent as independents or with other parties.

And in New Mexico, 41 percent of those who were released registered to vote. Of those, 55 percent registered as Democrats, 10 percent as Republicans and 18 percent as independents or with other parties.
So for New York, North Carolina, New Mexico, Democrats made up the majority of the felon population.

I'd be willing to bet $1,000 right now that California, Florida, Oregon, and Washington all follow that same trend. When you add New York to that equation which we know is full of democrat felons, that's nearly half the population of the country cumulatively.

So thanks for helping to prove his point.

So what do you think about the leftist slowly eroding 2A? How do you reconcile that in your mind?
