And there's where you prove my point. Insurance? Fair point, but being able to pay for it is the only true restriction. Same as any other good you may own, like guns. Road worthiness? Not in my state and many others. And inspections are limited in scope. It's equivalent to saying certain guns need to be checked for working order before you go hunting. Driver competence? You really want to go down that path? I think we can all agree that there are millions of dangerous drivers out there, and they won't lose their license. The best you can argue is an equivalency, not a increase in regulation with that one.
So, again, cars and guns are not even close to the same thing.
If a person buys three cars, do they pay insurance on only one?
If your car has bald tires and belching smoke, you will be pulled over and told to fix it. Hell, even a headlight out can get you a "fix it" ticket.
Driver competence, I had hoped, would be self explanatory, but I guess not. There are idiot drivers who insist on driving drunk or high. Not enough of them get pulled over and have their car and licence taken from them because of incompetence. Others surf the web and drive and veer into oncoming traffic or the bike lane or into someone's living room and have their car and, sometimes, licence taken from them for incompetence.
However, those who follow the rules keep their car and licence.
Now on the other side, all statements in a general sense: Do I need to be 21 to buy a car? No. Do I need permit to buy one? No. Is there a waiting period? No. Is there restrictions on how many I buy? No. Are there restrictions to how much and which type of fuel I can buy? No. Is there restrictions to how fast they can go? No. Are there restrictions in which cars I can buy and own, like how fast they are or how powerful they are? No. Am I limited in where and when I can drive my car? No. Is a felon barred from owning or using a car? No. Are there restrictions to how I store my car? No. And I could go on. Only natural that a loosening of heavy regulation is desired by law-abiding firearm users. It's not a debate that cars are less regulated than guns. And yet they kill many more, and they kill far more indiscriminately. Yet I don't hear as loud a call for more transportation laws. I chuckle at your proposals that clearly go well beyond car regulation in my state. And since we can prove it will do little stop shootings, it proves the point that the calls won't stop at that level of regulation. All-out ban and confiscation is the real goal. And the final problem? One tool is protected by the Constitution. The other is not.
"heavy regulations"? You have GOT to be joking! We have had over 300 shootings in the last year and you think there is "heavy regulation" of guns? Courts do put regulations and restrictions on felons when it comes to cars. Many of them can not leave their state or can only be out during certain hours. They can not afford a car straight out of prison, anyway. They could borrow a car, sure. Just like people can borrow a gun.
The biggest reason anything is said about "right to bear arms" is because, when the Constitution was written, the government had no standing army. It was up to the male citizens of the United States to be the army if/when that time came. The "army" back then was the militia. The first words of the Second Amendment talk about the militia. There are rules and regulations for members of the militia later on in the Constitution.
Don't double down on your bigoted slang term by saying gun owners don't know the difference between a semi-auto and fully-auto firearm. I'm in awe at your ignorance about the beliefs of others (or even worse, maybe it's intentional). It's abundantly clear what the difference is, and the problem is that the gun control supporters are trying to re-write the dictionary to mean something else. You know, the first section of the 14th was written before certain things existed today as well.
So, list off semi automatic weapons, please.
I have said, as many of us have time and again, that we don't care if people need to hunt or need protection or want to own a part of history. But, why stockpile military grade weapons? If you need that kind of firepower to get food, start a garden and go vegan.
