If any of our readers have anymore questions they’d like me to ask of these douche-bags before I email them back, feel free to add them to the comments section:
I have just a few questions that I need answered to my satisfaction before I consider signing your petition in support of Federal background checks and magazine restrictions:
For the life of me, I am stumped as to how more background checks and restrictions on magazine capacities would have hindered Adam Lanza (or any future incarnations) from perpetrating such a horrific atrocity.
Please kindly explain to me how any of this would have actually stopped the Sandy Hook massacre?
Also, please explain to me how this does not fall under the “shall NOT infringe” clause specified in the 2nd Amendment?
On a state level, I am already forced to waive my 2nd Amendment rights and submit to a background check before purchasing a gun. Now, the Federal government wants to get into the game. That sounds like a VERY bad idea to me.
Have you recently tried getting ANYTHING done through our Federal government? I, personally, have dealt with our Federal government on numerous occasions. To say the very least, they are an over-bloated bureaucracy of inefficiency, a labyrinth of red tape, an egregious conglomeration of soulless pencil pushers, and, undeniably, they are perpetually guilty of seriously momentous mistakes that affect innocent individuals on a daily basis.
Case in point: Have you seen the ataxic nightmare that is the “No-Fly List?” For such a simple concept–a list of known terrorists who aren’t allowed to fly on commercial aircraft–it is rife with errors and governmental abuses affecting thousands of law-abiding citizens that don’t even know what a “jihad” is, much less elderly individuals who couldn’t be of any threat to even a baby.
Please explain to me how the Federal government is going to somehow, magically avoid creating the same hellish nightmare with a Federal “No-Guns List,” which, logically and naturally, will have to be implemented in order to prevent certain high-risk individuals from obtaining weapons? Who will be in charge of such a list? Who will decide who, or what groups of individuals will be on such a list? What legal recourse will an individual have if they feel they have been unjustly denied a hunting rifle?
Considering that yet another faceless, tumescent Federal entity will, no doubt, be presiding over who will and who will not be on a No-Guns List without the accused ever having a chance to confront his or her accusers, aren’t our 6th Amendment rights in danger of being trashed, also?
Finally, what actual assurances do we, as Americans, have that a future, tyrannical government (be it Left wing or Right wing) will not use this gun registration database as a road map in which to confiscate our rifles? The answer, “That will never happen; you are just being paranoid,” is not a sufficient enough answer given historical reality.
These are just but a few serious questions which I, and many others have.
If I do not hear back from you, or your arguments rely purely on tumid emotions without making any logical sense, please be advised that I will NOT be signing your little petition and you may feel more than free to drop me from your already invasive mailing list.
