Because before the NFA and GCA of 68 America was some sort of 3rd world version of a Thomas Hobbes wet dream?

All lawlessness and violence, brutish and nasty.

Bull Crap. You must be a lawyer.

Well

1. We will both be dead so a bet between us does not make alot of sense.

2. Why do you think it will not? It has done fairly well so far.

How does having an RPG or a grenade conflict with the rights of others?

So, the NFA being repealed would not magically allow anyone and their momma to possess bombs, grenades, and rpg's.

IMO, it was a presumtuous, misinformed, and short-sighted opinion for Scalia to use.

Come on Ruggles.

Just skip to the standard gun banners argument.

"What, do you want NUCLEAR weapons in the hands of civilians?!?! Because we can 'regulate' nukes, we can 'regulate' semi-automatics and folding stocks."

Anti-gunner.

Yes.

The number of silencer companies has shot through the roof lately. Every time I got to an FFL that is also an SOT there is always at least someone paying for something and filling out the transfer paper work for a stamp (usually an SBR or SBS). With the increase in popularity, I think it is just a matter of time.

I have seen those. However, if you have a CCL, at least in this state, you cannot bring it to a sporting event or an amusement park. I think theaters fall into that descriptor as well. I have a CCL as well as well as the authorized firearms I use on duty. When I am off, I prefer to off, that is why I went out and got my own CCL.

As I said much earlier and often in this thread I am for some refinement of the NFA. I agree the barrel length of a shotgun is not a relevant issue for example.

But a RPG or a grenade are devices that I would deem too destructive to be on store shelves for you or I to buy like a box of ammo. IMO your/my right to own them do not outweigh societies right to be relatively secure from you/me using them in a crowed restaurant for example.

Yeah, we want a society ran by arrogant attorneys that want to figure out how to deprive as many people out their guaranteed freedom's to make a living reinventing society as they see fit from their gated communities.

Join the rest of us in society, the water is warm.

Movie theaters are not a "no carry" zone in Texas. Quick Google check:

You are correct about the sporting event and amusement park being no carry zones.

Then surely we can regulate who breeds in society as well, there isn't any thing in the Constitution that wouldn't prohibit us from curtailing your need to breed.

Oh no doubt, these types of things are becoming much more main stream than before. I do not think that we will see a acceptance of FA firearms losing any restrictions though. Barrel length is much more likely to be unrestricted IMO.

Anti-gunner.
I did not go there because I did not have too. It is good to see that you (like me) draw a line on what the 2nd A covers. Although our lines as to what is and is not covered may differ we both appear to have them

And stop the black and white labeling of people already it is immature and silly. Just because I support some regulations on firearms does not mean I am a "anti-gunner" whatever that is exactly....I like most adults can use reason to determine things and do not have to resort to simple yes or no for a answer.

Just saw where you posted the same kind of crap in a different thread "BS LEO selective anti-gun nuts." Stop looking for "anti-gunners" behind every rock.

Yet I can buy as much diesel or gasoline as I want. Should we regulate the purchase of gasoline or diesel down to five gallons? We do want you to be relatively secure from your fears after all.

you guys keep chirping about freedom but its starting to seem like you guys are just so paranoid that you think you need a RPG to be safe..


you dont have to look at "the people of walmart" to have a argument about why we dont need these rules appealed you only have to look at the people of glocktalk.

you guys are always talking about shooting anyone that comes into your yards..overthrowing the goverment,battleing
the forces of evil (or what you percieve as evil) your the ones that the NFA laws protect us from.

But you are an anti gunner, and anti freedom, you just can't admit you're a statist. I'm far from being an anarchist, I believe there has to be structure and laws, but within the bounds of the Constitution and BOR. Many of the SCOTUS decisions have run contrary to the these documents, because there were/are people on the court like you.

No, it's an identical argument, it's regulating a right that clearly says "shall not be infringed". There is no such matter concerning procreation, so, it can be regulated, under the commerce clause no less.

What a shame, I can only hope your children turn out to be better citzens than yourself.

Buy away, nothing stopping you except local laws and regulations from storing what fuel you will.

But that has nothing to do with the matter at hand. Surplus RPGs, grenades, SAMs or surplus 500lbs bombs are not in the same category as your fuel example. Weak example of comparison and you know it. Again this is not a yes or no question, it is a question where there is a reasonable answer between the two.

I really don't think I need an RPG to be safe. However, I don't think it should be the government's place to to infringe on that right, as clearly stated in the 2A.

It is not about having confidence in people with firearms. If it was an idiot test 50 percent of folks owning firearms would have to relinquish them. Then again, if it was an idiot test to breed we could shrink the populace by about 70 percent.

The right has nothing to do with ability. Frankly, ability has gone down hill because we are are more urban, do far less hunting, and typically aren't raised in a culture where firearms are viewed as what they are-tools. Media hype, ignorance, and fear have created an ineptitude and wusification when it comes to firearms.

Quote:

Wrong, I am talking about original intent, history, and what the 2A actually meant and means.

Laws only protect society from the law abiding. The cirminal element has always had, and will always have these same said "scary weapons".
