Interesting article about guns

From the NY Times of all places. It seems like this author was actually attempting to find "common ground". Usually when I read an article about the "common ground" on guns it ends up being an article trying to convince me that I am OK with an assault weapons ban or a ban on high capacity magazines.

We've given up enough common ground.

Here's the common ground that I offer:

Complete deregulation of all weapons used in a direct-fire role, TO INCLUDE AT rockets/missiles, anti-tank guns, mounted cannons such as those on tanks and SPG's. And hand-held grenades.

Launched grenades and mortars of less than 125mm diameter, a simple background check. No 4473, no fingerprints, nothing that .gov retains to know who has them.

Restoration of a person's rights upon them being released from prison AND post-release control (probation, parole, etc). If someone can't be trusted with a firearm or voting, they need to stay in prison.

End the elimination of rights due to misdemeanors such as domestic violence, possession of marijuana (or having a medical weed card).

Federal pre-emption which says states can't make laws to get around all of this, such as what Ohio did on a state level years back to get rid of the AWB's in Cincinatababwe, Columbusomalia, and ToleDUH.

There's our common ground. They meet me there, I'll stop waking men up to the reality they face in this society and showing them why they shouldn't get married, have kids, go to college for anything except engineering or medicine, or join the military. They'll get more slaves, as well as more future slaves, to help prop their society up.

Needless to say, I won't be holding my breath waiting for us to meet on common ground.

Also I was lying. I'd get what I listed, and then continue working to bring their society down.

Only true common ground with a liberal is six feet under when it's all over for all of us. You just can't trust them.
