What if a rider was attached to the bill (illegals amnesty) that would:

Make post 86 machine guns once again available to us lowly civies...

and/or

Took suppressors of the NFA items list?

Would you go for the giving amnesty to illegals if gun owners were given something in return?

I know it would probably not pass with the riders, but we can always play make believe!

No.

No.


Those things should be done anyway on their own merits, not as a payoff to look the other way when a gross injustice is committed.

Hmmm, maybe if that happened, it would be easier to take care of the illegal problem....


But seriously, no probably not....

WTF is with these stupid hypotheticals that could never happen? And they always involve giving up something really important to get something improble.

It's like asking if you'd take getting assraped by a gang of Crips in return for 10 million dollars.

Well, let me just shit on your threads too.

I asked because I wanted to see how strongly some people feel about this issue and if some people would accept a tradeoff.

If you don't like the threads, don't reply.

Let's say that we all supported the amnesty in exchange for restoration of our pre-86 gun rights...

The next week, the aliens would still be "amnestied", but there would be a bill to reverse the restoration of our newly re-won rights.

They would be laughing their sombreros/Birkenstocks off at our naivete'.

No. Why should thousands of people who spend years and fill out much paperwork be penalized because they respect our country's laws whilst illegal immigrants get a free pass?

Just on general principle... no.

But hypothetically, even if something like that did pass; until the RKBA is ruled an individual right and subject to the protection under the 14th amendment, individual states could still ban or place heavy restrictions on NFA and post 86 items.

What will really happen with amnesty is what has happened in CA. We will LOSE the gun rights we have.

CA has banned "assault weapons", AR's, .50BMG, no "right to carry", no high caps. Democrats maintain near total control.

If you want to see where amnesty will take the US just look at California.

Is that all you can think about is machine guns?
