Sebastian does have a point. His ideas can be seen to fail the Jews in the Attic Test, I’d be fine just to have a mark on everybody’s driver’s license denoting prohibited person status. Doesn’t matter if you own guns or not (just the same way that most states issue a different license to those who are over 21 for the purpose of alcohol consumption…drink or no drink, your ID says weather you have the choice or not). You buy a gun, you flash your DL and you walk out with the gun. (Also FYI this might wake some people up to the bullshit laws that will take your rights away)
You get caught faking your ID, you face serious charges.
Now ideally in Weer’d World buying a gun shouldn’t be any different than buying a pocket knife or a power saw. Buy it out of the trunk of a car from Sumdood himself, who cares, because misusing the gun (or anything else) is the important part….also a lot more people being armed around mean if you decide to do something stupid or bad you could get your ass shot.
But that’s a compromise. Compromise is NOT what they want. These people want the same “Compromise” the Palestinian people want. They want to kill all the Jews, and then they’ll probably start sharpening their scimitars for the Christians etc. The anti-gun people want to ban ALL GUNS, and then look to ban knives. These are the people who are excited when some commie said they wanted to repeal the 2nd Amendment.
When they talk about licensing they aren’t thinking a New Hampshire carry permit where they just double-check your background and give you a card, they’re thinking Chicago style permitting where they require a permit to OWN a gun and they close the registry after a while so no new gun owners, and eventually the old guard dies and private gun ownership is over.
When they talk about universal background checks they aren’t talking about popping down to your corner gun shop to set up a transfer (and maybe the guy at the shop is your buddy, or sees you come in to buy a few boxes of ammo every week or new guns so he waives the fee) they’re talking about Mexico-Style where you may need to board a PLANE to get to travel thousands of miles to the ONE shop, go through a TSA-style screen to ENTER the shop, and when you get in there you get to see a selection of guns that makes the bullshit Massachusetts system look lavish. (Just to give you an idea, .380 Auto, and .38 Super are the most popular handgun calibers in Mexico because calibers like 9x19mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP, and .38 Special are “Military and Police Calibers” and illegal for civilians to own), and the article doesn’t say, but I know the ONE GUN SHOP in Washington DC (which doesn’t actually SELL guns, he just signs for the package from another FFL and then transfers the gun to you…and you need to make an appointment because he doesn’t have shop hours) charges $150 just for the transfer. With one shop in the nation, and given that this asshole charge $150 for literally NOTHING (The shops around here charge between $20 and $50, but they have a shop, rent, insurance, and employees, and I can just show up during business hours and get the job done) who’s to say $500 just to call the NICS line is unreasonable?…$1000?
They don’t actually want to talk compromise because in any compromise situation lawful people get to own guns. They don’t want that, so we get the responses we do.
