That logic leads to tyranny by the majority. Something the Constitution specifically tried to avoid.
Sounds like the typical “I’m pro-2A, but...” BS. Cant you at least acknowledge there are legitimate concerns with mandating anything when it comes to a right? Especially a right whose context includes protection against government overreach and tyranny.
By the way, safety training would only make a small dent in the gun deaths. Accidents are rare and have been dropping. Adding the intrusion, cost and infringement to a right for very little gain is abhorrent.
So even though this was ordered on 10/4 and was told on multiple occasions that there’s a 90 lead time, my FFL called and said the pistol came in today. He also said NICS is running 4-5 days, which is absolutely ridiculous but what else should be expected from NJ.
You are a true defender of free speech here, aren't you RUTGERS95, wishing me to "slip on ice and not get up" just because I do not see the world in the exact shade of stupid you believe in.
I on the other hand wish you good health, as someone who is comfortable in their views I have no problem debating the opposition. And while you think I'm ignorant and myopic 50% of this country, and over 70% of the western world population share my views and not yours. So you have to stop and think, is there half a percent chance you didn't get it right on any topic?
And as a reminder what we are really on about, this is not a philosophical debate about every single thing in life, this is just about guns. I'm 100% pro gun ownership with the caveat of mental health and background check and mandatory safety training for the first weapon of a kind you buy. E.g. first hand gun - get training. First rifle - get training.
One single item I disagree with most here, and I'm the enemy. If it makes you that angry making you think your neighbor is your enemy, this indicates more about you then about the topic - FEAR, you just live in fear.
