Recently, I saw where a legislator made the comment,,,,,I'm parapharsing,,,,sorry I can't tell you the name of said genius [:)]
"I have to have a license for my fluffy little dog, why shouldn't I have to have a licnese to purchase a gun"
The answer is a simple question really,,,,,,
Is there a constitutional amendment specifically guarrenteeing you the right to keep and bear dogs? [:D]
Sure there are laws and provisions regarding property, but are they written specifically regarding dogs? What about cars? Hell, you can make the same lame argument any number of ways.
Our license is the constitution. Our forefathers trumped that argument about 226 years ago.
License for a dog,,,,,Do you have to be licensed to speak the truth? Let's just license all of our freedoms......[;)]
There is a reason the constitution was written as it is. I thank God that the founding fathers made it difficult to amend the constitution.
