That's exactly how rights are taken away. The "it's not my problem" mentality is why we already have so many gun control laws. After they come after ours, they will come after yours. It IS your problem.

Maybe we should really be asking "why do you need a 700HP Corvette Sports Car?" Oh, yes, I remember, because it's a FREE COUNTRY and as long as I don't break the law with it then I can own it.

I use the same argument, but I go one step further by pointing out that cars are are not a RIGHT guaranteed by the BILL OF RIGHTS and guns are!!!!

Cotton,
I do have an open mind about this and I would refer you to HISTORY if you have an open mind!!!
This is not about 'sporting arms' and if you consider this 'bunk' you are the one who is not open minded, but of the progressive mindset.
I am of about the same vintage as you and if you do not consider this a battle worth 'picking' I truly pity you!! If the BILL OF RIGHTS is not worth 'picking' as a battle worth fighting I don't know what is. Can you tell me what 'battle' is worth 'picking' in your world????????

He doesn't understand the concept of liberty, the one that millions of American have suffered, been tortured and died for, so he can say what he wants. If the Constitution isn't worth fighting for, did all those men die for nothing?

Every real combat veteran I have ever spoken to, including my father who fought in the Pacific in WW2 - has told me emphatically that they fought for their buddies, the guys in their unit, not for the right to vote, or the second amendment, or any amendment for that matter. It was about respect and survival not Stars and Stripes. That stuff you mention is Hollywood glorification of war.

I'm more or less referring to the Revolutionary War.
