Bill: Expansing Civil Liberties

Details

Submitted by[?]: Free Democratic Party

Status[?]: defeated

Votes: This is an ordinary bill. It requires more yes votes than no votes. This bill will not pass any sooner than the deadline.

Voting deadline: September 3814

Description[?]:

"Liberty is good. We feel that gun ownership is great for our population. The government shouldn't deny that right. Any item is a weapon in some way, and if someone with a mental issue kills someone with a gun, they shall be punished as well as someone without an illness. Guns are more beneficial for society than they are bad for it."

~Ted Johnson, Head Chairman of the LPS

MessageSo with this proposal someone who has committed violent crimes would be free to buy guns? Not sure how that helps anyone's liberty if a dangerous individual buys guns and then goes around robbing banks.

Message"Someone who commits a violent crime is allowed to vote, and if our rehabilitation works properly, that isn't a problem at all. Guns are also not a problem, as with a gun they can hunt, protect themselves from new criminals, and protect themselves from anything else. Frankly, guns are important to our party."

MessageI am a big proponent of rehabilitation but I still don't think it is beneficial to have people with a violent criminal history buying guns.

Rehabilitation does not work 100% of the time. Even if only 10% of those who are released from prison end up being criminals this would mean an increase in the number of criminals with guns.

We support gun rights as well, but it should be with sensible gun regulations and laws that prevent (for example) those with a violent criminal history from buying guns. Want to have a gun? Don't assault someone or rob a bank. This seems reasonable enough.

Random quote: "Capitalism demands the best of every man�his rationality�and rewards him accordingly. It leaves every man free to choose the work he likes, to specialize in it, to trade his product for the products of others, and to go as far on the road of achievement as his ability and ambition will carry him." � Ayn Rand
