If peaceful means do not work, another war may be what it takes to return America to the way it was meant to be, the way the Founding Fathers wanted it to be. Rights are one of the very few things actually worth dying over.

I'm not saying I want another Civil War, because that is something I never want to see happen. But that IS the path we're heading on right now. The Feds violate the Constitution more with each passing year, and people are getting tired of it.

What's your solution? Just accept the evaporation of our rights?

Of course I'm only 69 years old, so I'm still young. But I haven't lost any rights yet. if I ever do, I'll get back to you!

I guess you don't consider restricting certain FREE people from owning a gun, requiring you to have a license if you want to sell guns, restricting handgun sales over state lines, and banning mail order gun sales unless they go through an FFL (GCA of 68') a loss of rights.

How about the Law Enforcement Officers Protection Act which banned the import, and manufacture of armor piercing bullets?

And the banning of all machine guns made after, or not registered by May 19, 1986, effectively making it extremely difficult for people without a lot of time and money from getting one.

What about the Crime Control Act which created "gun free" zones, and Outlawed the assembly of illegal semiautomatic rifles or shotguns from legally imported parts?

There's also the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act which required a 5 day waiting period on handguns. Luckily, that ended when NICS was created.

The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act banned "assault weapons", but luckily had a sunset clause. it still lasted 10 years. it also prohibited juveniles from possessing a handgun.

What about the Patriot act which allows wire tapping and surveillance without a warrant?

The NDAA allows the Feds to arrest someone, and hold them indefinitely. Denying them legal council, and denying them their right to a fair trail.

The Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011 bans protest anywhere where secret service are present.

You haven't lost any rights? Your either in denial, or just don't care about your rights.

And yet I still have all of my guns. and get more every year. All my ammo and reloading tools, scopes etc. I still go where ever I want to go, do what ever I choose to do. I never get hassled by anyone.

I respect other people and the government doesn't bother me.
