How is owning a car not a right?

It's not enumerated in any piece of legislation as something delegated by the government. That's what doesn't make it a legal right. 

"Human rights" are another topic completely, and I'm not sure that a car would fit into those either.

Without getting in to specifics of my private life, let's just say I have some first hand knowledge in the experience and it has somewhat altered my views on certain aspects.

Not nearly at all does it give reason enough. It's already been stated several times, through courts and legislature, that what they did was unconstitutional / illegal, and therefor 'not reason enough'.


Cops have been run over by cars before. Is that reason enough to impound all cars?   Here's the difference: Ownership of arms is a right, cars are not.


And also a left.

Who reported that?

I like how the National Guard wasn't provided ammo.


I know cops down there that were personally under fire during the looting.


And confiscating weapons from law abiding citizens seemed justifiable?

Did anyone hear about the stories of the law abiding citizens, who tried to get their firearms back? If they did, it took years to do so.


I didn't say a thing about the confiscations, because I'm not well versed on the topic. jMac mentioned officers were being fired upon during Katrina, and your response seemed like you were "skeptical." All I did was let you know that it did happen, and not on what I'd call a small scale, either.

Shorty said that he's heard from others that Syria bought up what the Ruskies were ditching from their inventory of captured arms from the war. It was these, GeW-43's and Mosins. My guess is that Ivan was talking with Assad and said "Hey, buy an extra AA unit and we'll throw in this whole warehouse of automatic assault rifles!"

Wow, that's an awesome find. Where the heck would you find enough 7.92x33mm  to feed the things?

Stumbled upon it? Lol? Like the people that have a vested interest in the stockpile have better things to do than guard that with massive fire power.

Meanwhile, the Free Syrian Army has perfected time travel, at least, that's the only way I can explain this picture:



In all seriousness, they stumbled on a warehouse with 5,000 StG-44's complete with magazines, etc.

On the current US collectors market, that warehouse is worth $125-$250 MILLION just for those guns alone. Lucky bastards.....
