    Principals with principles do seem in short supply.

    Absolutely, I would support stricter gun laws!!! I firmly believe every eligible adult should be required to own at least one firearm and learn to operate it correctly and safely!!! Each member of the "Unorganized Militia" should practice at the range on a regular basis, and sign a pledge to honor his duty to protect himself, his home, and his family against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

    I think when a person registers to vote, he should be told, "You have the right to a gun, and if you cannot afford one, a gun will be provided to you at public expense."

    How you like THEM apples?

    By the way, nothing I say on this website as "user" should be taken as either advertising for attorney services or legal advice, merely personal opinion. Everyone having a question regarding the application of law to the facts of their situation should seek the advice of an attorney competent in the subject matter of the issues presented and licensed to practice in the relevant state.

    Conceivably.

    I could envision some anti-gun laws that remove firearms from the hands of police officers (while they are on duty). I.e. high cap magazines, assault rifles, etc.

    Would I support stricter gun laws? You bet I would!!

    I favor the strictness in the PA constitution: "The right of the people...shall not be questioned." (emphasis added by Citizen)

    Oh, yeah. I would support wholeheartedly a law that strict.

    Heck, anytime PA wants to make it a felony for any government employee or agent to even question the RKBA, I'll support it 110%!!

    Strictness is definitely called-for in these things.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
