You register your car and get a license to drive, so why not your guns?

Thanks to renegade, via the Texas Gun Talk forum, for the excellent response. are only registered if they are to be driven on public roads. If you do not want to drive on public roads, no registration. And no legal restrictions in its design either. Jimmy Johnson's #48 does not have to meet any Federal Laws, no emissions, crash testing, MPG, no 4473, no NICS, no restrictions on felons, stoners, etc, 800 HP and 200 MPH all 100% legal on private property. So to remain analogous that means MGs, Silencers, SBRs, etc, all 100% legal no registration or restriction of any kind if they are only used on private property.

If you choose to register your car, then yes some legal restrictions apply, but in exchange for those restrictions we get registration and DL that are recognized as valid across all 50 states, and again, no waiting periods, BG checks, etc to register, and we get 50 state carry. And since you can drive onto POs, military bases, etc, we should be able to carry there too.

Then ask them if they want the same system for guns. Tell them we gun owners will go to that system tonight if they think it is so good.
Probably one of the best responses I have ever seen. :)

Does anyone think a man would have gotten the same plea deal?

Kaitlyn Hunt, an 18 year old woman was arrested after her 14 year old girlfriend's parents called the police.
A Florida high-school student charged in February with a felony sex crime over her affair with a younger girl accepted a plea deal on Thursday to avoid becoming a registered sex offender.

The case against Kaitlyn Hunt drew national attention after supporters accused authorities of picking on her because of her sexual orientation. Indian River County prosecutor Bruce Colton said Hunt was charged like any other adult for having sex with a child. 
Hunt was 18 at the time of her affair with a 14-year-old schoolmate, whose parents called the police. She was charged with lewd and lascivious assault on a minor, a second-degree felony.

The deal calls for Hunt, who has been held in jail since late August, to remain in jail until December 20, followed by three years of felony supervision. If Hunt adheres to the conditions of her release, she will not be branded a convicted felon or registered sex offender and can ask for her case to be sealed or expunged.
There are many examples of young men being charged as sex offenders for schtooping their 2 or 3 year younger girlfriends, but they do not get sweetheart deals.  They do not avoid the sex offender registry.  Even a 6 year old boy is apparently a sex offender if he plays doctor with a female friend, but when a gay woman does it, she's being picked on? 

I guess some animals are more equal than others.
