Why is this 'debate' even happening? "There are ironclad rules. The government must play by them." - BJH

Kroger Asking Shoppers to Leave Guns Home
Submitted by: David Williamson

Kroger is asking shoppers to leave their guns home – stopping short of banning the "open carry" of firearms in states like Ohio and Kentucky where it is legal. The retailer also endorsed laws strengthening background checks and for keeping guns out of the hands of people deemed at risk of waging violence.

The solution is only going to be more stringent than gun lovers want to imagine the longer this inaction goes on. American patience with this is rapidly dwindling.

Gun owners should be in favor of universal background checks, assault weapons ban, etc. before people really lose all patience.

Barry Hirsh
So-called "universal background checks" is a façade meme meant to disguise what they'd actually do. First and foremost, the commerce clause authorizes regulation of commercial sales, but not private sales. Private sales are not commerce, and there is no enumerated authority for government regulation thereof. Second, were one to be unconstitutionally implemented it would establish a de facto gun registry, which has unfailingly been a historical precursor for total civilian disarmament.

"[T]he enshrinement of constitutional rights necessarily takes certain policy choices off the table. . . [T]he Second Amendment extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding." D.C. v Heller (2008)

There are ironclad rules. The government must play by them.

And that isn't a suggestion.


Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
