I was talking to a liberal friend of mine (actually he is more of a free thinker than either party, but unfortunately in the US you have to choose one or the other when you hit the booths, and he more often than not votes democrat) Anyway, he is actually a huge supporter of gun rights, loves guns, and is outspoken about it. He was quick to point out that the Colorado theater tragedy was like "fish in a barrell, but fish aren't so easy to kill when they shoot back." Anyway, now that you have background on him, he told me he thought firearms should be registered. His reasoning is to aid in police investigations and whatnot... Not to mention, we register every other potential liability we own- cars, dogs, boats, etc... If I argue that registration gives the government a record to take away our guns, I sound a little looney. All I could come up with is that our country doesn't need anymore departments that require more taxes and deeper debt. So what do you think? Why are you against firearm registration? Maybe you are not... If you legally own SBRs and suppressors, you are kind of supporting gun registration... Just a thought.
