Imagine we were talking about a POID ("Published Opinion" ID) card. That anyone who publishes an opinion in a magazine or paper (online or digital) had to shell out for a POID card so that their piece could be fact checked. Failing the fact check when attempting to publish would be a felony of course. We should also set up a system with no due process whereby people close to the writer can turn him in if they find his opinions suspect, and the police will arrive and immediately confiscate all computers, phones, pens, pencils, paper, chalk, slate, toner, ink, opened envelopes that have room for scribbling, etc. etc.The ISRA is livid that everyone who applies for a new FOID card or renews one would have to be fingerprinted. The cost of this would be “astronomical, up to $250.” In addition, the ISRA says, applicants would have to pay for their own background check, costing another $100 or more.
But who says that the people who choose to own firearms shouldn’t have to go into their pocketbooks every now and then?
Amen Brother, don’t need none of them ther persuasive arguement thingies for a Constitutionally Guarenteed Right. Period.A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall NOT be infringed.
WHY SHOULD we have to have a “persuasive argument?”
that article sounds like a bunch of cry babies to me.
OMG.... April 19th, 2019 is coming... Only 244 years after the first uprising against a tyrannical government...Correct, make it so difficult to exercise a right that the people give up trying.
Then again I seem to remember hearing that we shouldn’t obey unjust or unConstitutional laws.
