Democracy when it aligns with my views, tyranny and oppression when it doesn't.
Also I feel winds are blowing in my direction, so I'm not really mad, I just think your wrong.
I believe our first ammendment is extended beyond newspapers, and our 2nd beyond cap and ball.
I think you hit on the head there. The enemy of peace is not these evil dirty racist right wing gun toting George Bush APAIC conservative FoxNews watching.....people. The real enemy here is physics.
"Oh, wretched ephemeral race, children of chance and misery, why do you compel me to tell you what it would be more expedient for you not to hear? What is best of all is utterly beyond your reach; not to be born, not to be, to be nothing. But the second best for you is --- to die soon." Silenus
Why am I not surprised that when finding themselves in the voting block minority, the pro-gun lobby pulls out the oppressed victim card?
Please tell us how extending background checks is oppression.
And just remember, the NRA and right wing pundits told their followers to ignore emotional fear driven arguments, so the evil liberals wanting to take your guns and background checks being a stepping stone argument should be ignored.
I agree with you on the evil liberals wanting to take away your guns thing though, I try to ignore them all the time. And will continue to do so until the day they send someone to my house to collect my guns. And then I will tell then "Decklan said you wouldnt come for my guns!" And then they would go away, respecting the constitution and all that

Ban slugs!What about slugs
I'll get some salt...
We weren't just talking about background checks. We were talking about a soft poll that 'shows' majority support for banning both semi automatic weapons and 'assault weapons' in addition to extending background checks.Please tell us how extending background checks is oppression.
Stop responding with straw men.

Don't hate my rig, there's nothing quite like the classics.
2. Lots of people in this thread and on this subject have supported banning guns. If this is a new concept to you, perhaps you should pick any three pages of this nearing 1000 page thread to find one of the hundred. Or, if you figure that would be too much work, turn on your television or radio to a news outlet for about 5 minutes currently. Just because YOU didn't doesn't mean it isn't also a current topic. Hell, Captain Slow even posted a Poll which "supports" the ban of a 80% of all firearms.
3. We can have a "discussion" about background checks when the follow can also happen...
A. Those pushing the matter can explain how a background check would have prevented New Town, Virginia Tech, Aurora, or the Gabby Gifford shooting. (Btw when doing so, please keep in mind that I've yet to see a 'background check' proposal that tackles patient rights issues or the fact that under the current setting only those put into the care of State run facilities can make it into the NCIS)
B. Some evidence or proof can be provided that the law does something without a Registry.
C. A presentation of conclusive numbers showing traced private sale firearms being sold to felons which would equate to the justification of such a measure and tax on the law abiding citizens.
I ask this because these are three very important parts and details which somehow fucking vanish in the conversation.
You guys do know that NICS call are made at gunshows, right? Even on C&R items.

It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.
