Gun control debate: Background checks
Marine’s response to “Gun worshiping Marine veteran an embarrassment to those who've served” fallacy.
SgtS, a libertarian from Denver, Colorado, said, 'Joshua Boston is protecting a very unique American right that is constantly threatened. The American people have the right to arm themselves with weapons being carried by law-enforcement and military. Some argue that this is foolish and irresponsible. But how can this be when I was issued a M240G medium machinegun at 18 years of age? I fired government weapons before I was old enough to drink, yet I cannot bear those weapons to protect myself outside of the military?'
What's your view? Join the debate on the right to bear arms.
