Every goddamned Libertarian thinks of themselves as a Wordsmith. An Oedipus complex for dear mother Ayn, perhaps?
Are background checks and/or registries constitutional or not? It's not a complex fucking question, I don't need a wanking attempt at literary genius. I'd like a "yes," a "no," or a "maybe" with some kind of elaboration in any case. You ain't Socrates Johnson, friend, so answer in terms of declarative statements.
Weren't you..oh, never mind, that was temporaryscars. Yep, nevermind.
So asking a question instead of being condescending or acting authoritative makes me what?
I'm not trying to hold Socratic class here, good Dr.
I'm asking an earnest unanswered question? A private person 2 person firearm sale is not transpiring via a business, and it's not legally occurring across state lines without an FFL intermediary? But you already know this.
Do you hold, as in my hypotheticals, that we forsake our forth amendment rights when we invoke or exercise another or not? Let's hope not.
So I posit most proponents support a back-ground check but as far as the constitutionality goes I plead, probably not but IDK. Still, one has to demonstrate harm to bring a challenge to it should it pass. Unless it is a clear violation, prima facia.
I'd argue that involuntary/mandated registration of a private party gun sale (in comparative terms of a protected right, unlike buying/selling a car) would be more so of a privacy breech than just a back-ground check alone- but the constitutionality would be untested? Am I wrong?
In the end, the arbiters of this won't likely be motivated by the constitutionality will they?
As for being a wordsmith, sorry if you have to read more and think more about what I am saying than what I normally read in this sub-forum.
I'm certainly guilty of skimming myself, no harm done unless someone refuses to admit it and then acts offended and lashes out over it.
Perhaps I can put something more in your wheelhouse since you don't want to read and address my thoughts.
What are your thoughts on Kleck and does he have anything new that's not behind an academic/pay-wall?
Most of what I find from him seems dated, but still relevant in relation to the AWB. I only ask as 1. He's local to me now and 2. Trying to decide on other stuff and found him through Heller and his influence there.
Or you could just call me a NAZI or imply I might be a racist . . . again. Finished skimming the Trayvon thread for any racist remarks on my behalf yet?
