it isn’t about safety – it about control. The people proposing Gun Control are the very people who the Founders wrote the Second Amendment to protect us against.
Behold the voice of the progressive masses from the Democratic Communist People’s Republic of San Francisco:
After the laws banning all guns are passed, there should be an amnesty period that would allow gun owners to voluntarily turn in their guns. After that, a system of rewards for informants could be put in place, with upgraded rewards for turning in family members who still own guns.
We should not only get rid of the guns in circulation now, but melt down those in museums; they have no place in our world. When all guns are gone, everywhere, the world will return to the peaceful, nurturing society that existed before the scourge of firearms made us violent.
Of course, warrantless personal/vehicular/home searches would be necessary, but what a small price to pay for a safe, orderly, peaceful society!
JEFFREY L. SUITS Kensington
So somehow the whole history of the world before firearms has passed recognition by Mr. Suits. The piles of dead by the Egyptians and Hitties and Romans and Mongols and so many others were accomplished without guns. The utter tyranny and slavery that has been almost all of human history seems to have completely slipped by this utter moron. And to get it he wants a) family members to snitch on each other, b) absolute and utter government tyranny to take anything they wish and c) absolute government authority to search anything they want.
Don’t these people understand that the people with the guns are probably the ones most well positioned to resist this kind of idiocy – as the founding fathers foresaw and the reason why they put that whole second amendment thing in the Constitution – and that the power to destroy goes both ways. They won’t be in power forever and if we then decide that kicking down doors in San Francisco to find say drugs or illegals doesn’t need a warrant, do they think that will be a fine and wonderful use of government initiative?
Utopia apparently means Stupidity.
