I think our point of view are going to be rather different. Based on these two quotes specifically. And I will address each with my point of view.
Although I am more aligned as a Democrat than a Republican, I believe in my 2nd Amendment rights. This seems even more outrageous!!
I mean I guess the only legislation I'm "okay" with is the background check on ammunition. I'm a law-abiding citizen, not even a single speeding ticket (although many parking tickets ) so I guess this wouldn't affect me, just more of a hassle.
I guess you'd be wrong.
If you regularly break the law doing something as simple as not parking your car how you're supposed to, you're still a criminal and how are you going to be trusted not breaking the law with your gun?
Just because your elected politicians haven't banned you from owning a gun or ammunition yet, give it time. That's just one example of their logic and how things could change.
Before long, you'll have to have no criminal record whatsoever to be able to exersize your RIGHT.
California has attempted to make the 2A as burdensome as possible. While not outright banning things, but making it prohibitive to ship anything to the state (in other words, meaning, making it difficult to ship to you), that many manufacturers and dealers outside of Kalifornia refuse to do business with a California address. Just look on gunbroker if you need proof of that. Or a google search of FIREARM MANUFACTURER THAT WON'T SHIP TO CALIFORNIA. You may be surprised to find out how many hits you'll get.
In my humble opinion, a Right is something that you're born with. And we are allowed certain rights by birth here.
A privilege is something that can be taken away.
Personally, I think they have already broken the Constitution already.
What's one more infringement? Maybe the next time, they'll infringe on your freedom of speech and not let you publically complain about them taking your guns without a warrant too.
That makes sense. Well when push comes to shove, I'll be out of this state within 10 years, hopefully it doesn't come to that.
I don't really know what to say about that. I guess we're just from different worlds.
When push comes to shove, I don't run away.
I stand my ground and push back. And I have done so on the steps of the capital and phone calls and emails, and at the ballot box. Sorry, but I don't just take what's dished out to me if it is wrong.
I don't want you to think I'm bashing you. I am not. I am not belittling you or anything else. Simply having a discussion.
I would like to ask that you take a few minutes out of your day and watch this. I believe that it may help you understand why our Bill of Rights were made and what it actually means.
