    Are there ANY government restrictions on weapons possession that any of you support? If so, what are they?

    Just curious.

    Personally, I think the government is micromanaging the people way too much.

    Let people live and let live or kill and be killed. I'd rather see that than a government that dominates society.

    So you would support having no restrictions at all, then?

    I think that's what I said.

    If local people want to create controls by local government or local vigilantes so be it.

    Why don't you ask the Swiss how they do it, their gun laws are WAY more liberal than the US, they actually require most males to have a weapon at home. .

    "The vast majority of men between the ages of 20 and 30 are conscripted into the militia and undergo military training, including weapons training. The personal weapons of the militia are kept at home as part of the military obligations"
    And so on....

    So if your local government would completely ban guns you'd comply with it?

    Yeah, you wouldn't want to miss the chance to spray bullets in a schoolyard.

    No, I wouldn't want to have might Constitutional rights taken away.

    After all, I have a gun now and don't shoot in a schoolyard.

    Too bad people aren't allowed to defend themselves on schoolyards, if so more people would probably still be alive.

    Try Somalia, which has many black African Muslims with guns and no gun regulation.
    Shouldn't Eladar, an extremely racist white American, feel safe there?

    There'd be an exciting chain reaction of explosive decompressions in the red states as cognitive dissonance kicked in and resolved the gun violence problem once and for all.

    So the founding fathers were wrong in having the second amendment?... They should have imposed gun restrictions in place of that?

    Then I'd no longer be living in the United States.
