why on earth would I give a criminal the possibility to legally own a gun?
Uhhhh, because you're afraid that stopping criminals from buying guns will also stop citizens from buying guns. So, you LET the criminals buy guns.. I dunno why..
You've heard of the gun show loophole, haven't you?? It's where private citizens can sell guns along side federally licensed gun dealers.. The difference is, you have to get a background check when you buy a gun from a licensed dealer, but you DON'T when you buy one from a private party..
Right wingers DENY that that's the case.. But, I WENT to a gun show at the Tacoma Dome here, and COULD have bought ANY gun I wanted..
People AREN'T equal.. The treatment of people isn't equal. That's just the way it is.. The government has NO interest in changing ANY of that..
The government DOES, however, guarantee equality of opportunity. What one DOES with that opportunity is NOT the governments concern. Equality of OUTCOME is not guaranteed. The 14th Amendment would be a good place to look for that right..
