The downside is that if they get these "modest and reasonable" limitations accepted by the people they go for more of the same over and over again until we're ALL disarmed.

It's the camels nose under the tent.. RIGHTS are not negotiable...These libs never get it..Once a freedom is lost, the only way to get it back is by FORCE and without the tools to apply said force, they are gone forever...I always prefer to SPIKE a gun rather than plead a case after the fact. as in easier to ask for forgiveness than waste time asking for permission. Us old Chiefs are funny that way.

I’m not a big gun owner and I’m not part of the gun culture. So why, then, do I frequently post about the issue of gun control?

Mostly because I believe in freedom and the Constitution.

But I also appreciate facts and analysis and I know that law-abiding citizens are safer and criminals face greater obstacles when good people have the right of self defense.

Last but not least, I think there’s a non-trivial possibility that the United States will suffer some sort of social chaos and/or breakdown of law and order because of the damage caused by reckless...
