Firearms Prohbitionists think of the Pro-RKBA crowd as their pets [View all]

They love us and they want us to be happy, but boy oh boy kitty just can't have those claws.  They know "what's best for us" and they aren't afraid to try and hijack rule-of-law to "de-claw" the lawfully armed populace.

They want to register us and make us have licenses to exist, like dogs. The Gun-Prohibitors want to tax the hell out of every branch of firearms ownership: from guns and ammo, to the ranges we practice at.  They want it to be as difficult as possible to be a legal gun owner, because they love us and know what's best for us.  They don't want us furring up the furniture and if we're not careful they'll make us sleep outside.

  However, these actions are just stop gap measures.  Gun-Prohibitors won't tell you their end game, because even they don't believe it.  They don't want any civilian legal firearms at all.  They want the whole kit-n-kaboodle, but they can't devour it all at once.  They have to take it slice by slice.  Everytime they propose a new firearms law or ban, it's not the endgame for them.  It's another slice.  You need look no further than some of the posters right here on DU.  For the Gun-Prohibtionists, it's just another step in the direction of total prohibition.  When it comes down to brass tacks, there are no moderate firearms prohibitionists.  They say the only people who should have guns are the police, the military and, because we live in reality, the criminals.  Everyone else gets declawed, tagged and "cared for" like a cute little kitty cat.

The Prohibitionists are happy to willfully misinterpret the 2nd Amendment to further their agenda against lawful gun owners.  Thankfully, this issue has already been decided by the USSC, the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right.  MEOOOW!

We saw how well the last US Prohibition worked out with alcohol.  The alcohol NEVER stopped flowing and many people suffered because of the violence the black market brought with it. In fact we're neck deep in another prohibition right now: The Fabled "War On Drugs". The catnip party never ended, it's just got a little more expensive to yowl at the moon.  Unfortunately, It led to the rise of organized crime to the heights of which had never been seen before in the US.  Prohibition isn't the answer.  We already have enough gun laws, enforce them.

I guess what I'm try to say, unapologeticly: The 2nd Amendment was never about hunting, it's about preventing tyranny and personal protection. Without private firearms ownership the US Constitution is toothless.  We're not your pets, you can't "put us down" and you can't have our guns.  We're all for reasonable laws, but WE ALREADY HAVE THOSE ON THE BOOKS.  Enforcement, not legislation is the answer.  

Gun Control is a red-herring.  Guns don't cause violence, but inequity, mental health, ethnic/racial oppression and the War on Drugs do.

If you still think of us as your pets, well just remember: it's illegal to declaw your cat in some parts of California and.....it's inhumane.

I'm going to go take a cat bath now.
