What about lawyers and IRS collection agents?

If the person that wrote that was a federal Leo then I have some ocean front property in Oklahoma to sell. That rant had so many spelling and grammar errors it had to be a libturd sitting in his mamas basement. I'd forward that to the FBI cause someone posing as a federal Leo is a crime.

Truly! I was an auditor for the state for a decade; I accepted the general public's opinion of auditors as part of the job. I knew I wasn't there to nurse abandoned baby animals back to health; I was there to do my job and make sure state programs got funded and that everyone paid their fair share.

It was NOT the first thing I would mention when I met somebody for the first time, as the very words "state tax auditor" could give them an almost evil impression of me. Luckily I could mention my part-time teaching position when employment came up.

You don't become a sanitation worker if turned up noses bother you, and you shouldn't become a LEO if turned up noses bother you.

I have a couple of friends that are lawyers. They aren't scum. They're actually nicer people than I am.

I think if they want to make firearms illegal, they should make things like heroin and cocaine illegal. Oh wait, they did. So making firearms illegal is going to solve all our issues? Nope. Look at the u.k. They have fewer gun related deaths and accidents opposed to North America. Minus Mexico.....but how many bombings a year, or week, do they have?how often do you hear about subways being blown up, buses? More then here. People are not meant to be restricted. If you remove firearms, there are many other weapons to commit crimes with. Like bombs and knives. Are they going to take away spoons next "in case" someone chokes? Scissors? Not likely.
There is no physical way to remove harm from our streets, entirely. If there was, it'd of happened by now. They remove firearms, there would be more gun smuggling and black markets for it. It will help a bit, temporarily, but it's pretty wasteful. Instead of trying to remove rights, why not house the homeless? Feed the starving? That seems more helpful to me. The money used to eliminate guns could be put elsewhere. I read that there is enough empty houses and homeless, every homeless person could own 6 houses in the states. And Obama is worried about guns?

You do understand the reason they are trying to ban law abiding citizens from having firearms, right? And no, it's not because of "gun crime".

Yes, I do. I've had a few of these talks before. I'm just throwing more into it.

Trying to use logical reasoning against the antis isn't going to do anything. I learned this many years ago.

Apparently that "LEO" didn't get the memo from SCOTUS on the Heller and McDonald decisions, affirming the individual right to bear arms

Hit send before I was finished. I'm in Federal Law Enforcement, granted as a Correctional Officer, but I absolutely support our God given right to own firearms. Further, I am an oath keeper. I remember raising my right hand and swearing to defend our sacred Constitution, in my current profession, and when I took the oath from my time in the Marines. It sickens me that so many seem to forget their oath of office, and would arbitrarily deny rights just because they don't agree. It is truly frightening that those types of people are in a position of power over others.
