    Local, Please stop talking about public safety via gun registration – it is almost embarrassing.

  • local gop says:

    LL,
    No, you asked if the federal government can force people to buy a product or good. And they can, and have. I never said it was right or wrong, I just said that they can because that’s what you asked.

  • Loudoun Lady says:

    What has the federal gov’t forced citizens to buy? An example please. And yes, you used car insurance as an example, which is a state function – not the federal govt.

    Further, do you think it is constitutional?

  • P.Greer says:

    You are not forced to buy car insurance. Driving is not a right. Driving is a privledge. You can walk, take a bus, ride a bike or carpool.

  • P.Greer says:

    I have a question for gun owners? Do you think that felons should be able to own guns? Vote?

  • G. Stone says:

    No disclosure required because it is a local committee race and not any public elected office in the government sense?

    Correct. No disclosure is required for Inter party races. Just as it would be required of your HOA when they elect their President.

  • G. Stone says:

    GS,

    you do realize that the federalist papers were written by people that originally opposed the bill of rights right?

    Those People you refer to her Madison , Hamilton and Jay. Further the three shared some opinions, yet were far from universal in their thought processes.

  • G. Stone says:

    “there is not a single case where the federal government, or any government for that matter, has seized an individual’s pistol that they keep locked up in their home for protection. the only time that knowing who has a gun(s) is necessary and used is in matters of public safety.”

    Do some homework. Thousands of privately owned firearms were confiscated from law abiding citizens during Hurricane Katrina. Many were never returned. As a matter of fact the State of La.,as well as the feds got spanked in multiple law suits. Further their actions brought on a slew of state laws bolstering gun rights ans making it illegal to confiscate private firearms in the name of ” Public Safety “

  • G. Stone says:

    I thoroughly enjoy debating the second amendment and gun rights with people who don’t know their ass from a hole in ground or just make shit up on the fly.
    Now back to the question. What is the purpose of Registration ? I’ll answer for you, in that you are ignoring the question. – So, the Government will know who owns what guns. Our founders were very smart men. So then, what group of dip shits would write the second amendment with its PRIMARY purpose being to memorialize a PRE-EXISTING right that would be used to repel a tyrannical government and then turn around and allow that very same Government to register the arms that may at some point be used against them.
    NO One would, because that would be Stupid ! These men were not Stupid. This just is not that tough to comprehend.

  • Barbara Munsey says:

    Thanks, G.

    Out of curiosity, who did pay for it?

  • G. Stone says:

    Barbara:
    I honestly don’t know. I suspect it was from donations, several people gave time and money.

  • Wow…local sure is one mixed up puppy.
    Embarassing yourself in every post is sure good entertainment, though.

  • Loudoun Lady says:

    P Greer, that’s my point – Local is mixing apples and oranges. The state can dictate you have car insurance to register your car, and you must register your car to drive, but nobody is required to own a car or drive.
    *
    This is 4 worlds apart from the federal gov’t forcing citizens to buy a good or service. It is simply unconstitutional, but Local doesn’t understand the constitution so it’s no surprise

  • Cato the Elder says:

    “I have a question for gun owners? Do you think that felons should be able to own guns? Vote?”
    *
    Yes and yes.

  • Loudoun Lady says:

    splain Cato….

  • Cato the Elder says:

    Both are inalienable or natural rights. The question was broad, I gave a broad answer :)

  • NoVA Scout says:

    A lot of confusion around here on the state of the law on the Second Amendment. We now know (as of the 2008 term) that the right to bear arms (not guns,specifically, but weapons that, given the time of the writing of the Constitution, include swords, knives, pikes, bows and arrows etc) is a personal right, not tied to participation in the National Guard or other militia organization, and that that right cannot be impinged by banning ownership of firearms or keeping them in a residence in federal enclaves such as the District of Columbia. That’s the state of the law. There was an argument this week at the Supreme Court that indicates (it’s always risky to try to interpret these things) that that right will be extended to apply to state and local governments. The right is subject to reasonable regulation. We’ll see if the Court provides guidance on what such reasonable regulation can consist of. I suspect the shape of how much regulation is reasonable will emerge over the next couple of decades as various challenges to registration, training, permitting requirements. I suspect that the Court will allow some degree of federal, state and municipal regulation of who can own the weapon, what sort of checks have to be performed and training received before allowing ownership or a right to carry, and that there will be, in some of your lifetimes, a clarification of whether concealed carry can be prohibited or heavily regulated.

  • P.Greer says:

    LL that was my point about car insurance. It is not an example of the government forcing you to do something as Local says. You have a choice. Health mandate, you don’t. As soon as you are born, you would need insurnace. You don’t have a choice.

  • P.Greer says:

    Cato, thanks for answering the question.
