And anyone that really thinks their is a sizable difference between Republicans and Democrats is laughable at best. Their both just as corrupt and abusive.
Personally I think both were/are just as bad. They are donkeys of a different color, but donkeys nonetheless.
I'm sorry... but it seems that some Americans believe they deserve more rights than they should.
The government isn't trying to destroy you. Grow up and stop talking like a moron.

What has been made by QQ can be unmade by QQ!!!
the QQ about "OBARMA TAKIN MEH GUNZ!!!111" is just... precious...
anyways well done mr president, sounds like a good foundation for the future.
Conservatives would probably point to things like gay rights. Society became more and more accepting of it, and laws are being passed (or removed) to give them more equality. They could argue that this was indeed a slippery slope from a misguided initial sense of fairness towards gays.
But as my example shows, not everyone will think that these slippery slopes are actually bad things. Once you can get past the initial (and often mostly emotional) resistance to a change, then it's easier for people to accept what they likely know is right or reasonable, and you can get to a better place overall.
Most handguns and firearms that are available to the general public are designed for sport and leisure. It doesn't matter that predecesors or other models and designs are used in war. We use our guns as a hobby.
Gun owners are extremely responsible thats why we have gun lockers, gun locks, safeties, training, shooting ranges, and safety seminars every year. You say pissed off teens can pick the locks etc...have you ever tried to pick a lock on a gun locker or a locking mechanism on say a pistol? Good luck.
Oh one more thing...handguns don't cause monumental dmg to the environment and pose a risk to water, food, shelter etc.
Please... Don't say you "know" something when you don't.
Those numbers are from the FBI.
"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."
That is the Second Amendment, part of our Bill of Rights. It is a document the President swears to uphold and protect. Notice the "the right of the people to keep and bear arms, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED."
So where you complain that we "believe" we have too many rights, it's mostly because that document SAYS we have those rights.
Do we really need to bring the gun discussion here, when this is about the 23 proposed measures, none of which has anything to do with the assault weapons ban, but rather gun rights friendly proposals? We already have 3 threads about gun control.
You can lead a person to knowledge, but you can't make them think.
