    See....this is why you can't have nice things.

    Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

    •  What the Aussies do works. (0+ / 0-)

      What you "support" does not work.

      As written, you are saying you don't support licensing because it works.

      Pitiable.

        Because I don't believe in infringing on American rights.
        Any other constitutional amendments you care to do away with?
        Anything else you would like to take from innocent Americans, so you can feel more secure?

        •  Licensing doesn't "infringe" on anything. (0+ / 0-)

          No "innocent American" with a sensible world view is into Bircher Madness paranoia aimed at our police and military.

            in order to ban guns.

            So, are there any other Constitutional rights of innocent Americans you want to do away with?
            I'd just hate it if Constitutional rights gets in the way of your feelings.

            •  Do you believe the Black Helicopters (0+ / 0-)

              are going to come and take away your car or your airplane or your boat or your x-ray machine at the office ?

              Communal delusions feed paranoia.

              Check out the techniques pioneered by the John Birch Society. Getting you to distrust our democracy has been going on for 50-odd years. One scam after another.

              Lie after lie after lie, all trumpeted by corporate media.

              •  You supported registration that would lead to (0+ / 0-)

                banning.
                I simply reminded you of your perspective.

                "paranoid"
                So says the person whom insists that Americans give up their liberties in the futile quest to make you feel secure.

                Your fears are irrational and your own problem.
                Don't infringe on the liberties of innocent Americans for your irrational fears.

      •  bontemps2012, what is the licensing you seek? (1+ / 0-)
        Recommended by:

        1) just information, thanks - to aid the CDC and other agencies on formulating an informed response to a national health crisis.

        2) some restrictions on who can be licensed, debarring certain persons as described in current law.  No license, no gun, no ammo.

        3) very restricted, to those who work for the 1% (Brooklyn Bad Boy) with current or former ties to the Police & Military.
        The definition of "need to have", tightly restricted to active-duty and actively employed only.

        4) just information, thanks, which we will use in a couple of years to round-up all the guns in civilian hands.  
        Anything which doesn't match the flintlock muzzleloader used circa 1792 is gone.  

        Oh, and black powder to shoot that?  Gone too.
        Same for the bayonet.  And lead for bullets.
        Have fun wanking with your inert gun:  
        Oooh I'm in the Militia!

        •  Look up the Australian system. (0+ / 0-)

          They have a thorough set of regulations. People feel that it is fair.

          One key is not to bend public policy to demands from paranoids.

          D'oh.

          •  "from paranoids" (0+ / 0-)

            So says someone so irrationally frightened he demands Americans give up their liberties so he can feel secure.

            If you are really this frightened of American liberties, and this distrustful of American people, why are you staying in America?

            It seems you would be more comfortable in Australia.
