steve-0: Old_Chief_Scott:A basic tenet of the Sikh belief structure is the defense of the defenseless so maybe this one isn't so bad as the one that sets off car bombs.What I meant was I thought carrying around a Kirpan was the whole point of that, not carrying around an assault rifle.
Mr. Eugenides: Dimensio: Protecting public safety by prohibiting ownership of semi-automatic rifles that feature threaded barrels, pistol grips or collapsing stocks overrides any supposed freedom of religion.Consider the increase in rates of violent crime that would occur were California residents not barred from purchasing rifles with thumbhole stocks.How do threaded barrels, pistol grips and collapsing stocks enganger public safety?
give me doughnuts: A kirpan is a dagger, not a semi-automatic rifle.Didin't anybody tell this guy?
