Washington state liberals (democrats) want to stop by and inspect your house from time to time. Evil gun search

The point of all of this, is just to point out that this is not about saving lives, it's about grabbing guns from everyone. The "left" have been eyeing this for a long time, many would love for us to not have any guns at all, but don't know where to start.

The problem with the "assault weapons" is that it's just the start, next is semi auto, then pumps, then bolt actions, then single shots. It will not stop.

And no, for almost the entire population automatic rifles are illegal.

Also, the only real difference in these two weapons is the looks. I guess folks think that pistol grips and black finishes are extremely dangerous, and turn regular guns into weapons of mass destruction.

Automatic guns are not illegal in the US. There might be bans at the state levels, but they are not illegal by federal statute.

And if I understand what you are saying, you are making the argument that out of fear that there is a slippery slope of further gun control sometime in the future we should just do nothing.

Let me ask you this question, how did that slippery slope work out with the ban on certain assault weapons in the 90's?? Have you lost more guns since that ban? Has the government come after pumps or bolt actions since that happened nearly 20 years ago?

The "slippery slope" argument is and always has been, by and large, a complete bullshit fear mongering tactic. Not just in the gun argument, but in most all debates where people warn of the "slippery slopes". Kinda of like the "slippery slope" of gay marriage leading to an epidemic of bestiality and incest.

It is an argument designed to conjure up fear of an unknown.

I'm worried about the slippery slope of the federal government putting a ban on weapons for no reason.

You want to do something about it, fine, and I am totally in agreement with you, but try to fix the real issue, don't just fug around with it because it makes you feel good.

P.S. Do you think this is OK? Or normal?

I think that is something that has been procedure for a while. It is for veterans that have been deemed mentally or physically deficient.

You shouldn't get so worked up over chain emails and/or news organizations that are less than honest.

I am not sure which this originated from but I am sure it is one or the other.

I interpreted that as: Look over there....nothing to see here.....move along.

Are you talking about my post or the letter? Do you mean we should let mentally damaged people have access to guns?

This has been a part of federal law for a long time. What are you getting at?

Not sure what you are looking for.
