Didn't you buy the gun just as you buy a PS3 and feel you have the right to tear it apart? You need a license to buy a gun. By getting that license, you are agreeing to a whole slew of laws, no different from the agreement you make when buying a PS3 and agreeing to the license agreement to use PS3's software.
full of fail
1)nics checks are in no way thorough
2)suppresors/silencers or whatever you want to call them are perfectly legal in the vast majority of states and equiping said equipment is perfectly kosher. look up the nfa.
3) only a handful of states require a license to buy a gun. most states a resident of legal age can just go in and fill out the proper form and purchase the firearm. the form is strictly for the nics check, not a registration or for a license.
4) no one agrees to abide by any laws when purchasing firearms. tthe decision is made to not abide or abide by them is ones own choice and sometimes that is a day by day decision. but if the decision to not abide by them is made the consequences can be very severe.
i believe the user's point you are responding to is that a creator is not responsible for the decisions of others. the consumer making that decision should be the one held responsible. anyone suggesting otherwise should be put in the ostracized from society. the pdople suggesting otherwise are the ones who have created this whole quandry by not upholding personal responsibility. essentially your either have the choice of having more freedom to do what you want while also having the personal responsibility to face the consequences of your actions or you can choose the path of the user that i have quoted which is one of less personal accountability due to the decisions already having been made for them.
sorry for any typos. i typed this all up on my phone.
