    Some moral problems are OK to base policy on. Others aren't. At least that's what we are told.

    I've been watching for more than 30 years of gun panic in the US. It has been interesting. I'm sure I'll get to see at least 30 more.

    So? Don't have to be a conservative to value civil liberties. Or do ya'?

    Might be. The two most important civil liberties (the 1st and 2nd protected rights) are being attacked from the left these days.

    Sadly. They sure stand up real good for Muslims though and their own right to broadcast opinion. And neither side gives a fuck about getting internet data sucked up by the feds or civil asset forfeiture. Real shit-show all around in my opinion. Might as well be quartering troops. :eek::D

    Indeed. There's an authoritarian problem from both the left and right using the apparatus of state power to counter the other side while fucking everyone else over in the process. With that said, I'm as concerned for a left leaning coup of government as I am of a right leaning overreaction to establish "law and order" in order to prevent it.

    I'm maintaining faith in the system of checks and balances.

    Me personally, because it's my hobby and I can. I'm all for everyone's right to self/community-defense.

    Yeah, I haven't seen you explicitly say you'd ever use it for what I was alluding to.

    With respect to the checks and balances you mentioned, I think its pretty undeniable that the enumerated protected rights that were explicitly codified in the founding document have, if anything, just slowed their erosion, no? I trust checks and balances to secure my liberties like I trust my ex holding a 45lb weight over my ball sack.

    I'm not sure rights have eroded more than they've been expanded (via incorporation). But I'm no legal scholar.

    Really? I mean there's actually a doubt in your mind that we haven't had our liberties significantly eroded even in the last decade?

    I'm also imagining state laws over the course of the nation's history. Not professing to know how to weigh it all out.

    Wells Fargo CFO says government, not banks, should set gun policy


    https://in.reuters.com/article/well...not-banks-should-set-gun-policy-idINL1N1RQ1B1

    Sensible of Wells Fargo. Might just set themselves up nicely to take over from Citi and BOA as the banking choice for gun manufactures and businesses and there's a lot of money in that market.

    When the banks are on your side, morally, you're probably on the wrong side.
