This certainly contrasts the issue of releasing the names of abortion (murder) doctors. It is no secret that many who are ardent supports of gun control are also ardent supports of abortion rights.

Some of us see no connection between abortion rights and gun rights other than the fact that both are RIGHTS not to be infringed and support both along with all OTHER constitutional rights.

foor for thought: The right to keep and bear arms is part of the bill of rights, a result of the need to protect our nation and the divine right to protect onesself (the life, liberty and pursuit of happiness thing); The right of a woman to do the unspeakable isn't, it's a construct of modern situational ethics. As you said, though, they [i][b]are[/b][/i] both rights.

We place way too much faith in a Constitution that was written long before the evils of database cross-referencing and searching (or databases in general) were even conceived. What we badly need is a new, crisp, and very clear set of ethics for government based on the Constitution, but up to date in terms of technology. It is just too easy for the feds to say one thing and do another while looking like they are being all nice and compliant. Did anyone really think the ATF/FBI could resist not destroying gun purhase records? There's no one to arrest them when they violate the clear letter of the law. No consequences and no accountability.

You are, of course, correct as a practical matter. But, where is the NRA, the GOA, The JPFO, et al? Why aren't the law enforcers then enforcing the law? Where are our legislators & our judiciary?
