beardedbruce BS: When is it ok to ignore the law? (98* d) RE: BS: When is it ok to ignore the law? 11 May 18

In MD, the buying, selling, or making of a significant list of firearms and ANY magazine of over 10 round is prohibited. As a collector, it is illegal for me to get an number of models of WWII weapons to use to display bayonets ( my specialty in collecting is US edged weapons.

From a MORAL standpoint, I object to it being illegal for ME to get a clip for a rifle, for display, while a criminal can make all he needs by 3d printer. What purpose does this law, THAT ONLY AFFECTS LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS, serve?

I HAVE argued that the laws being proposed

1. Do not remove guns from criminals
2. Do not prevent criminals from getting guns
3. Would result in a net increase in killings,
4. Prevent law-abiding citizens from protecting themselves when the government has stated "( D.C.'s highest court exonerated the District and its police, saying) that it is a "fundamental principle of American law that a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any individual citizen." "

Point number three alone would make it a moral obligation to fight against such laws- otherwise, I am helping the politicians increase the number of people killed for their political gain.

Is the goal to reduce deaths, or limit the ownership of firearms? I do NOT consider that these are the same point.
