I also have all of these rights. You must also agree that, according to the Bill of Rights, you also have the Right to Bear Arms.
THESE RIGHTS CANNOT BE SEPARATED!!!
It’s either all or none.You must recognize that once the government, be it local, state or federal, starts to take away even ONE of these rights, eventually ALL of your rights will be gone!
You say, “Let the government regulate assault weapons.” Ok, here are a couple things you obviously don’t realize, or comprehend.
1.) “Assault Weapons” are just that…weapons used in an assault. It may sound silly to you, but ANY OBJECT USED DURING AN ASSAULT is an assault weapon. It doesn’t matter if it’s a box cutter (i.e. 9-11), or a baseball bat, a car, a steak knife or any firearm!!
2.) Firearms are ALREADY regulated! You cannot just go into a store and walk out with a gun. ANYWHERE! There are forms to fill out; in some jurisdictions there are even waiting periods. This is already enough ‘regulation’. Show me the store where criminals can walk in and get a gun. Wait, they can buy them anywhere, you say? OF COURSE they can. BECAUSE THEY ARE ILLEGAL GUNS! It’s doesn’t matter if it’s a small .22 caliber revolver holding 5 rounds or a semi-automatic rifle with a 30 or 100 round magazine. Criminals can, and DO, buy them every day. ILLEGALLY!!
I don’t see a requirement for a waiting period for you to get an abortion! You might have to wait for an open appointment, but there is no government mandated waiting period. And God forbid there be a background check like there is for buying a gun!!
You say you want your right to marry a person of the same sex, but you want to limit MY right to own a firearm…I say screw you! MY RIGHT to own a gun is as important to me as YOUR right to be homosexual, or your right to an abortion or anything else you have a right to is to you.Try to take my right to own a gun, or even regulate them in a more strict manner, but you will have to give up YOUR rights to things YOU want, too!!
