You are a second class citizen because you had to take a driving test before getting in a car?
you're a second class citizen because you had to take exams before leaving school?
are you second class because you had to have an interview to get your job? -I mean in that situation someone could quite easily have been telling you you are not good enough to take a position of responsibility, but you accept it as a daily occurance.
are you a second class citizen because you have to provide credit references before getting a loan or mortgage?
The answer to all of those questions is no, so why should having to prove yourself be any different for guns?
-oh yes I remember, because of an old law that doesn't have a true relevance today!
It's odd how people who lobby for tighter gun control can throw up a hundred or more arguments and all the people who want to keep existing controls, or lessen controls have to say is, either "yes I'm responsible" or "second amendment!"...
In answer to both buzz and lurks,
No I don't think that trying to ban all guns will stop criminals getting guns, I don't think crime and robberies and murder will disapear over night, I realise criminals break the law! (it's in their job description!)
but by controlling the sale of guns it will make it a little harder for law abiding citizens to buy guns, but also make it a lot harder for criminals to get guns.
