As a compromise on the new "assault weapon" ban and Homeland Defense laws it is proposed that these would only apply those who citizens of non-european descent (Israelis exempt) or those married to such individuals. If this would result in your unrestricted access to all "assault weapons" (imported or domestic) and no loss of any other rights from the war on terrorism, would you support it?

That would be racism. I am aghast any government agency would suggest a racist policy. Or is this the next addition to the department of pre crime?

Not acceptable. IIRC, the laws that made ex-slaves defenseless in the old days were struck down as discrimination..... Scott [url]http://www.banknotes.com/CL147.JPG[/url]

Imbroglio, is it your goal to point out certain short comings in the Arfcom board or something? I've seen too many slanted threads from you relating to politics, Bush, wars, airline security and now this pile of festering shit? Do you take us for idiots or just racists? (Apology added if this was a serious thread about a real political proposal on the table right now. Post link please.)

Aww come on white people, you'd be quite happy with it and you know it.

NO! Besides, the HSA is a step in the RIGHT direction (consolidation of federal law enforcement). USA Patriot is another story, but it sunsets in 9yrs (and YES, I do think it will sunset.)

Imbroglio Are you frekin Crazy? Who do you think would actually accept this stuff? Do you just post this shit to raise your post count or what?

Why wont you support it? A great portion of gunowners are of European decent, so the prices of pre-bans will fall for all. Even persons of non-european decent will get to buy prebans at far lower prices than now. Many of us would support Homeland Defense laws if it only applied to forgeigners within our borders. So what's wrong with extending that to citizens of foreign decent? Explain to me this magic that happens during naturalization that makes somebody [b]not[/b] a security risk. A Mexican blooded kid is born in Chicago and raised in LA vs a Mexican blooded kid born in Tijuana and raised in LA. Biig difference, right?

I would support it knowing that it would be declared unconstitutional thus leaving us with [b]NO AW BAN![/b] It would be like throwing a fake bone to a dog. Poor sucker wouldn't know what happened until after it got suckered. The AW ban would be gone, and thanks to the SCOTUS, any offensive law would also be tossed. Don't forget, the AW law will sunset. If it is replaced by an OBVIOUSLY unconstitutional law, then that law will die too. Anti's will be left scratching their asses.

And the 94 crime bill wasn't OBVIOUSLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL? hahaha

People get all worked up over a racial issue, not flash hiders. An AW ban that was racial/national origin in nature would fall far faster than a "catch-all" AW ban. Your comparison doesn't hold.
