Subject: RE: BS: Gun ban - yep already
But see, Bill, there you go again with the need piece. Whether or not you think I need a weapon, or whether you agree with why I need a weapon, is no more germane than if I told you that there is no need for you to drive a car. I already have the right to own weapons, and to do so without defining why I have them. In order for folks to say I don't need them, and make me give up my CONSTITUTIONAL right to own them, there has to be a compelling NEED on behalf of society. No one has demonstrated yet how the act of taking the right to own weapons from law abiding, responsible gun owners will affect in a positive way the issues that are spawning the debate. The burden isn't on us. It is on those that want to limit my access to a right I already have.
And it goes on and on. Anyone want to talk about what makes music folk music for awhile?
