I'm not opposed to back ground checks for registration, and I also believe in certification, as I believe a person should know the difference between a glock and a double barrel pistol.
I oppose the prohibitions.
RE: individual troops: Peter Camejo comes to mind.. he was drafted for Nam. He didn't want to go, so when he reported for duty, he read the papers and refused to sign the one that says it releases all responsibilty of the company who weapons the troop will use.
The captain came out and asked him why he wouldn't sign, and he explained, I will put my life on the line for my country, but not for a corporation. He was released from duty.
It also reminds me of my uncle.. many of the weapons on the wall at his AFL are a great collection he developed on his three tours in Nam as SOAR and many trips back to find MIA and POW. Maybe some troop today will do that for their AFL?
