15. Random stops by police/dui checkpoints are just as bullshit as what you propose.

 

They are equally upsetting to me as they infringe my rights without just cause, while assuming guilt to do so.

That's your problem right there. I explained to you why being a statist, rights destroying, heavy handed, property confiscating, illegal searching, controller would harm your cause more than help it, yet you want to take my criticism as simple animosity rather than feedback on your terrible, ill conceived idea.

Yes, my comments were negative. Criticism is by its definition. I only responded to the parts I completely disagreed with, as they demanded the most attention. Registration, eh, that's a tossup. Canada had a registration system. Had. They dissolved it, as it was providing next to no benefit for running and maintaining it. Such a system might be handy if we could integrate mental health qualifies into the system, but that would open another can of worms. HIPPA? Who is considered mentally sound? Will people who have mental problems avoid professional help if they think doing so will restrict their civil liberties? Are veterans who get treated for anxiety going to be prohibited? Lord knows they are vilified as dangerous and unstable enough as it is. To top it all off, positions like yours are why registration is doomed to fail, regardless of whether or not it can work out such things as I previously mentioned. With some people/groups so bent on total confiscation of firearms, why would anyone trust TPTB with a list of everyone who owns one? The gun control movement has held registration up as a common sense measure for years, yet turns around and gives gun owners every reason not to trust them with getting such a thing passed.
