can be justified. The practice is inherently rife with the potential for abuse. I doubt you'll get many takers for a simple yes/no answer.

(edit: looks like I'm wrong about few takers.)

But only for guns. If you're found with drugs or anything else you walk, in my utopia. But if you have a gun you're not supposed to be carrying, I favor throwing your ass in jail for a long time.

And I'm a hunter.

In favor of violating the Fourth Amendment you would like selective enforcement of the laws.

Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.

Shit they aren't looking for guns. They are making open carry the norm so why search for guns? They are searching for pot. Keep poc, the poor, sand middle class jailed and with records.
