2nd Amendment and my thoughts about it.

Ok people, I'm a bit pissed. The more and more I think about this issue, which is a hot one right now, gets me hot under the collar. 

First of all, my heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to the Sandy Hook shooting.  It was a dispicable act of violence done by one person. What irritates me is that now the anti-gunners want to exploit this and use it to get more laws passed to further an agenda.  What confuses me is, why is it OK for people to go out of their way to take my Constitutional rights away, but keep the ones that support their needs? 

You have the newspaper in Conneticut that posted personal information of CCW holders. I think that is a blatant violation of privacy. And the people who's information was put out in public, should fight back and sue the paper.  What is the difference between that information getting put out, than say putting the people who work for the papers' SSNs out for public viewing. It's dispicable behavior, but to those ass holes out there the ends justify the means. 

Saw an article on Bloomberg in regards to the online sale of firearms and I about blew a gasket. Again, anti-gunners do not do any research.  First of all any reputable online gun auction or online seller will not send the controlled item of a firearm without getting a fax from the FFL of your choosing to go through the proper steps and legal steps to own that rifle or pistol. And WILL ONLY SEND IT TO AN FFL HOLDER and they must prove they have the proper credentials. 

Yes, you can purchase a gun online, but it has to be sent to an FFL if it is the controlled part of the rifle or pistol. Let me explain:

1) Say you want to buy an AR15 upper (the part with the barrel. Doesnt include the receiver, handle, and stock), you can do so online and have it sent to your house. This is because you have to have the lower in addition to the upper to actually have the rifle to shoot. If you bought only the ar15 lower, even with out the upper, that item has to be SHIPPED TO AN FFL and state and federal paperwork has to be filled out. It isn't as easy as you make it out to be. 

2) For a pistol, well a semi-auto pistol to be more precise. You can by the slide online and have it sent to your house, but if you buy only the frame (the part with the handle) you still have to have that item SENT TO AN FFL and fill out the required paperwork. 

3) If you buy a machine gun, that has to be sent to an authorized CLASS 3 dealer. You would then fill out the required paperwork, submit fingerprints, get permission from your state police, have paperwork sent to ATF, wait 6 months. That is after you get checked out to make sure you aren't a bad or evil person. 

Do I think the person who did the shooting is a POS? Yes. What I don't understand is that why do anti-gun people seem to not get the fact that there are evil people in this world.  Why do they feel they have the right to take my 2nd amendment rights away, at the same time calling me paranoid? If i'm paranoid because I have guns, why do you purchase life, flood, earthquake, and other supplemental insurance? I get the fact that some insurance is required, which I still think is BS too. 

That's it for today boys and girls. Till next time. Until then say your prayers, kiss your significant other and hope for the best. It's a new year and new challenges are coming. 

Happy New Year everyone.
