>>42068989>the 2nd amendment like every other right is an unalienable right
Yup, and there is no law that says anyone cant own a gun. Everyone in the US can own a gun right now, unless they are currently in jail. Totally legally, so everyone has that right.
But SOME crimes judges have imposed that part of the punishment be they cant buy certain guns at retail.
Background checks are Law Enforcement, not gun law, and they dont make a difference to a law abiding citizen. >did you know private sales in some states is absolutely legal?
Yes. >do you have a problem with that too?
No, states can do what they want.
know that in many of those cases the law states that it the sellers responsibility to be sure that they are not selling a firearm to someone who is legally prohibited?
Hmmm... i wonder how they could do that?>also just because someone is a felon or even a domestic abuser doesnt mean they cant change their ways
Which is why they can have their crimes expunged legally and have their rights restored. And its why they are still allowed to own some guns, just not modern cartridge guns. >they did the crime and they did their
Well, the time was a part of the punishment that the judge decided on, but so wasnt the loss of the right to own a modern firearm. Its probation, and if they want their right back, their probation period is 10 years in most cases, and after that they can have their crime expunged and buy all the modern firearms at retail that they want.
>NOTHING will EVER prevent violence
I'm not saying that. I'm saying that if you have the ability to enforce a punishment a judge put on someone, you should.
Drug testing criminals who are on probation as part of their punishment wont stop criminals from taking drugs, it just enforces the punishment.
