I'm sick of this shit.
This will piss a lot of people off and I don't give a flying fuck.
I think we should limit gun ownership to one narrowly defined hunting rifle per adult and round up and confiscate everything else.
No fucking hand guns, no automatics or semi-automatics. Those firearms have only one purpose. Killing a lot of people at close range really fast. There is no logical or constitutionally defensible reason why the populace at large needs to have these weapons.
I think we should restrict the sale of ammunition. Every time you want to buy more ammunition, you have to account for the status of the ammunition you bought last time. Add a form to the Income Tax process forcing you to declare every round in your posession and account for every round of difference from last years return. Subject to Federal Audit.
The Founding Father's intent for the 2nd Amendment was something akin to The National Guard.
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."
A "well regulated militia". Not a bunch of wacko, radical, mentally defective "citizens" armed to the teeth with military-grade weaponry. The more insistant someone is that they need to own as many weapons as they want, the more I doubt their maturity and judgement and the more frightened I am that they own even one.
And don't give me that crap about the Founding Fathers wanting us to be able to defend ourselves against our own government. That may have been their intent, but that ship sailed a long fucking time ago and most of you were willing crewmen on the boat.
Everytime you enthusiastically handed over your right to freedom and privacy in exchange for a promise of security, you handed more power to the very government of which you are so suspicious and wary.
And I got news for you Sparky. I don't care how many guns, how much ammunition, how many illegally obtained automatic weapons you have stashed in the woods behind your house. If the Federal Government decides to come and take your guns away from you, there isn't a goddamn thing you can do to stop them.
They have F-18s, M1 Tanks, Seals, Rangers and Nukes. You have some camo, some buck urine and a stash of guns and ammo.
You can't win. Grow up.
It's time that we put a stop to this juvenille, macho crap and rounded up all of the guns and ammo we can find. We'll never get it all. But by God, we can put a huge dent in it and make it a hell of a lot harder for people to get.
