    Nope. This gun owner, like most gun owners, supports common sense regulations and is reasonably happy today.

    There are gun owners, and then there are Ammosexuals. The latter group ain’t happy about this I can assure you.

    Which means the NRA pays as much attention to its constituents as congress does to theirs.

    Which begs the question, "Why do NRA members keep paying dues just to be ignored?"

    Which then prompts the question, "Why do reds keep voting for republicans just to get screwed?"

    the nra claims they have five million members
    analysis of their fund raising numbers suggests they only have three million members
    there are one hundred ten million gun owners in america
    they hardly represent all gun or even the majority of gun owners
    who they really represent is the gun industry

    my point is that you're not going to legislate your way out of it. if someone wants one, they'll get it or make one themselves.

    your shoplifting argument is horse sheets

    Then you make the penalty such that you would not want to be caught with one.

    Maybe you can let the NRA know then. As I see it, it's all talk and no actual action.

    Maybe someone should 'splain to Alan exactly how many silencers & oil filters were available when the 2nd was written.

    'bout time we got some sensible legislation upheld.

    Using your logic, we ought to legalize bump stocks, super high capacity magazines, home-made shoulder-fired rocket launchers, and so on.... if we can't 'legalize' our way out of the things that threaten us, then why make ANYTHING illegal?

    This is the libertarian wet-dream: the closest possible thing to anarchy that they can possibly imagine.

    I'm sure it all works for you.. until someone YOU love is struck... then we'll see an example of a light-speed change of attitude, won't we?

    Sigh . . . Do we really have to go over this again? Making a weapon or accessory illegal will never eliminate it entirely. Many things that are illegal can be purchased, from machine guns to sex with prostitutes to cocaine. The point of making things illegal is to make them less common, and to reduce the harm caused, since eliminating it entirely isn't possible.

    At what point will something be legal yet so toxic to a society that the average person will voluntarily give up their legal ownership and use of it for the betterment of their society?

    I've asked before, why hasn't this crowd come forward if they supported gun control or are they just spewing hot air saying they support it? From all that talk, I've seen no effort on their part to put their money where their mouths are.
