If one is going to pontificate upon law and national policy, one should have a vague idea of what the fuck he’s talking about.
Kittery Trading Post should engage with community about guns
Although not a hunter, I have no problem with firearms, as I grew up with them, use them, respect them and those who responsibly hunt or target practice with them. But after the recent mass shootings at schools, theaters and events involving assault-type weapons and large capacity magazines, I’m troubled as to why the Kittery Trading Post has not responded to petitions, individual appeals and now legislators’ requests for them to cease selling these types of weapons.
One should engage the community with facts, not lies. I suspect KTP is tired of “responding” to outright lies. At some point, an honest person concerned about so-called “gun violence” would look at facts. That — well into the 21st century, nine decades after the introduction of federal gun control laws — Bill Hamilton still spouts falsehoods, suggests he isn’t interested in truth.
Today in the USA, it’s illegal for a private citizen to own a suppressor (silencer), a sawed-off shotgun, a hand grenade, a fully automatic weapon (machine gun), a bazooka, etc. which are classified as “destructive devices”, a form of Title II weapons under the National Firearms Act.
Nope. Not in most of the country, certainly not in New Hampshire. And not all NFA items are “destructive devices,” although all “destructive devices” are NFA items.
citizens who have an overriding constitutional right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
That’s from the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution.
The thrill of target shooting an assault weapon is no justification for allowing these weapons of mass destruction.
I’m fairly sure the Kittery Trading Post has never sold weapons of mass destruction, which are defined in 18 U.S. Code § 2332a – Use of weapons of mass destruction. Rifles, pistols, revolvers, and shotguns are not WMD.
Oh, and Bill? There’s no such thing as an “assault weapon” in New Hampshire.
