I am new here, having just found this site. I am reading the posts with great interest, you see, I am a Federally Licensed Firearms dealer. I hold a class 7 license, that allows me to deal in, and manufacture silenced firearms as well as select fire firearms (machine guns). For those that live in a free state these items are legal to possess and purchase. As a short footnote, the National Firearms Act of 1934 called for the strict control of the sale and possession of these firearms (which goes against the Constitution). Since that date there have been two illegal incidents committed by LEGALLY owned registered NFA firearms, one of those was by a policeman!
I see a reference comparing automobile registration to firearms registration, that is like comparing an apple to a sea turtle. There is no reference in the Constitution, nor is there any right mentioned, regarding the ownership or the licenseing of automobiles. However, there IS a right to ownership of firearms in the Constitution, actually, the Bill of Rights, and that is the second amendment. The Constitution starts off with the statement, We The People, to me that means ALL citizens of this great country, not a select few. Just think, the next terrorist attack on the soil of the United States will probably come from inside our own borders as was recently shown on the news. We, as Americans MUST be prepared to defend this great Country just as our forefathers did. I hope this was not too long
