    ... nuts:  Give up your fingerprints to a database that will be shared across the country by federal and state governments as well as the United Nations, or give up your guns.

    I would tip you, but the man took away my tips.

    •  Would you do the same for the First Amendment? (1+ / 0-)

      Or perhaps the Fourth or Fifth?

      They're not ordered by priority, you know.

        I've yet to meet the "word" that can break through the locked door of a schol building and snuff out the lives of 20 first-grade children.   Let's take Tortmaster's proposal a step further:  In addition to the gun-owner's identifying criteria, let's also include the gun's criteria:  Make, Model, Serial number, and Ballistics samples.

        Proponents of gun violence own guns. Opponents of gun violence do not own guns. What part of this do you not understand?

          Words can do plenty.  I'd wager the First costs more lives a year than the Second, and the Fourth and Fifth almost certainly do.

          •  The most dangerous right? The right to vote. (0+ / 0-)

            How much damage was done, at how many levels, by the people who voted for Reagan? Dubya? Trillions of $$$, 10s of thousands of American lives and millions of foreign lives, an economy perverted and ravished by conglomeration and outsourcing, the world environment, the gutting of the Fourth Amendment, the packing of federal courts with right-wingers, on and on and on and on and on.

            YES WE DID -- AGAIN. FOUR MORE YEARS.

    •  Where's your repeal amendment? (0+ / 0-)

      If you want my guns, best get busy with petition drives for a repeal amendment; and electing an entire new wave of left-oriented Democrats to state and federal office, who will slowly begin to reverse the right-wing court packing of the last 40 years -- and eventually you may get your wish.

      No free lunches.

      YES WE DID -- AGAIN. FOUR MORE YEARS.
