More on Guns
While we are on the topic of guns and politics... I was more than a bit shocked that only Al Sharpton supported registration of all handguns when asked at Saturday night's debate. This may come as a surprise to some who see me as more conservative, but I have no problem whatsoever with gun registration. It strikes me as particularly odd that I have to register my vehicle, but not my guns. (note: I am also a former NRA member.) I believe that the 2d Amendment does provide me an individual right to keep and bear arms, however that does not preclude regulation. Requiring individuals to register their guns does not in any way, shape or form deny them of their rights.
