1. Is this some special new draft?

Because I already had to register in order to get any federal aid.

Also does this apply females too?

5. Then what your proposing is already done.

I guess I just do not get what your going for.

9. It is? Will not being registered for the draft prevent you from owning a gun? n/t

7. I could see how this might, in theory, deter some men who somehow didn't register already...

...but what does this do to the crazy/stupid woman who bought an AR-15 and kept it accessible to her mentally troubled adult child as was the case at Sandy Hook?

10. I wouldn't, but it would be an additional hurdle for chickenhawks like Nugent. n/t

14. But Nugent registered, and even reported for his draft physical

He would not have been affected by such screening.

11. Good grief.

You already get a little card in the mail when you turn 18 that says you have to register. Now the girls will probably get one too.

12. As a dishonorable discharge makes a person prohibited from gun purchasing I suppose

there is some sort of logic that could be argued for a service connection.

Personally I think a sex biased criterion for permission for a gun purchase, the purchase being an activity engaged in by both sexes, would be problematic under the concept equal protection.

13. Try This On...

...a buddy was promoting this one the other day. He owns a handgun and hangs onto it as being his Second Ammendment right...and the courts have backed him up so far. We both agree on not only the stricter enforcement of gun control laws (gun show loopholes et al) and background checks. While the Constitution may say that owning a gun is his right...firing it is not. If a person wants to fire the gun with live ammo then need to show proof of proficiency in the weapon they're buying the ammo for (a state administered test to be taken annually) and pay a tax that goes toward operating a national background check system and national database.

There's a lot of people (especially women) who don't have draft registrations...thus I'm certain this or any attempts to put restrictions on gun ownership will be found unconstitutional...
