Well, now with the 2014 elections gearing up, another fake gun group has popped up claiming to support “sane” gun ownership.They left out "common sense". Another one of the code words for we hate your right to own a gun.
Here are direct quotes from their statement of principles: ( http://tiny.cc/wqfrzw )Read the rest
- R+P exists to promote SANE gun ownership and SANE firearms management. SANE stands for: Safety, Advocacy, Networking, and Education.
- R+P believes that it is each state’s right to determine for benefit of its citizens any prerequisites, qualifications, documentation, training, and levels of demonstrated proficiency, if any, deemed necessary for lawful use of differing types of weapon systems. The establishment of any such requirements are not the prerogative of the federal government.
Got that? “Sane” gun ownership. Demonstrated proficiency. Licensing programs. Protecting “eligible” citizens’ rights.
- R+P seeks to work with state and local governments to help establish effective training and licensing programs designed to increase public safety while protecting eligible citizens’ rights to keep and bear arms.
Licencing? I think not. Licencing is the first step, then comes confiscation. Then could come a ride in a boxcar. Who are these "eligible citizens" they are talking about? When did we have to become "eligible" to exercise a right guaranteed by the Constitution. And who decides who is "eligible"?
On their Facebook page, they claim they want to have a conversation. We had that conversation and they lost. Here's my part of the conversation. Leave me and my guns alone and I won't shoot you in the face.
