Response to badtoworse (Reply #50)

62. Hey, I support the right to keep and bear arms too but not indiscriminately.

The RKBA appears deathly afraid of losing their right but there have been no proposals to take that liberty away. Only to do, in my opinion, sensible measures to deter criminals from so easily getting them. I'm waiting to hear a solid proposal from gun rights advocates on how to do that. But apparently the only option they are willing to settle for is nothing, no measures at all to deter irresponsible people from gaining access to guns. Our current murder rate and gun violence statistics show exactly how that's working out. It would be more honest if they'd simply say unequivocally that they don't give a shit about people dying if that causes them an inconvenience with their right to own guns.

But my primary point on this thread is that the exchange of Democratic representatives for republicans is far worse than if you all lobbied against their bills instead of the recall. Now you... we are stuck with republicans as representatives. And they used the gun issue to get exactly that. If you care at all about the Democratic platform, you can be sure that the republicans are going to do everything in their power to destroy it.
