The O'Meara BS: Crime in Canada, England and Oz (102* d) RE: BS: Crime in Canada, England and Oz 08 Mar 04


Here's the problem with registration: There are a bunch of people who don't like guns because guns are used to kill people and that's offensive to them, doesn't matter if it's self-defense of person or family, guns are so bad a few extra killings of innocent people are worth not having them.

These people say "Reasonable Gun Control" when they mean "People should not have guns." They say "registration" is a good idea, then when they get it they say "That's a good first step." Toward what? So gun owners who would generally be in favor of registration are adamantly opposed to it because it isn't an end, it's a first step. And that registration leads to confiscation business has happened in places like England, and Washington D.C here in the U.S.

So maybe it's because, for some unknown reason, some people don't trust the promises of politicians.
