Well, here we go again...for the past 2 motnhs or so, the pnp has decided to turn all the tules of gun ownership upside down. As if they weren't flawed to begin with...jus like the fact that you have gun stores "expedite" the prrocessing of licenses that, as per the rules, you would need a drug and psych test before getting a license....not to mention the abhorrent and costly process of getting a ptc... But now (well, as of the last gunshow), if you don't register your firearm/s by dec. 31, you WILL be considered in possession of unlicensed (& therefore illegal) firearms, and will b subject to a possible police operation if you don't surrender the same.... WHAT A CROCK OF SH*T!!! I've always held the belief that firearms ownership, as long as done responsibly and yempered with the right training and mindset, is a constitutionally guaranteed human right. It should not be subject to the whims and caprices of a certain government agency whose reputation is that of a tarnished and corrupt institution. Now, to be fair, not all pnp ate like that, and i apologize to my pnp brothers and sisters who go day in and day out upholding the noble principles that are supposed to be the very core foundation of the pnp. But it just gets my goat that those narrow-minded few, when faced with both the pressure to stomp the worsening criminality in our country, come up with a half-*ss idea that is only meant to line up their pockets. The bottom line is: if you restrict legal and responsible gun ownership, what are you left with? A nation of blind and mindless sheep? And who are you really helping out in the long run? The citizenry or the criminals? Or do you want to turn the country into a nation of criminals by taking the legal guns out of the handns of respinsible, God-fearing, and law-abiding citizens? Do you think your "clever" and partial rules would be followed (or even noticed) by the criminal elements? I think it's about time for the responsible gun owners sehment to stand up and be heard. Gun ownership should be made a priority issue, and we should start looking for and electing leaders who will make sure that our rights will be allowed to flourish, not infringed. Tightening down on gun ownership will not solve anything except the problems of criminals on how to move more freely. Once society is disarmed, who will protect us, the regular joes and janes? Frankly, i hate to thi k what i will do if it comes to that, but rest assured, i will not give up my rights without a fight. Message ends. posted using Outdoor Hub Campfire Wanna kill these ads?
