It's fairly obvious that gun fetishists have absolutely no interest in providing ideas for stemming gun violence when their entire defense is a nebulous concept of "tyranny" and superficial understanding of legislation as if gun control is about stopping every single event. Hell, if we can't cure cancer, then why the
fight it or even treat it, right? It's goddamn looney tunes. There isn't even any interest in learning about what causes those crimes because they're treated like they exist in a vacuum.
Thanks to the PATRIOT Act, we already have a "backdoor" registry of firearms and it would only take a slight push to consolidate it into a a nationwide database because of "national security." And what were the gun nuts and conservatives doing back then? Jerking each other off about freedom fries, respecting the office of the president, and calling anyone that didn't want an all out war a traitor and/or treasonous. It's as if FFL logs are just around to kill trees and the Feds/ATF/Illuminati to put software on your computer to keep tabs on you. Does the saying, "If you didn't do anything wrong, then you have nothing to be afraid of" ring a bell? Well now you're going to have to eat it when shit you don't like gets served up. Just desserts and all that...
If the government was serious about confiscating guns, a vast majority of freepers would've been disarmed by now as all mechanisms to articulate "just cause" have been legally established and there'd be no way to keep it quiet.
Shocker, the normal attack on the opposing side without mentioning why any of your ideas are good ones. Surprise!
So I am assuming you believe the "if you didn't do anything wrong, then you have nothing to be afraid of" situation now then? You pointing out people's hypocrisy is pointing out your own...dumb dumb.
