Come On People, common sense should prevail! They are not / do not want to take ALL your guns! Perhaps the guns people have no business with should be banned, like a assault gun that the military uses or a clip that shoots 30 rounds? Or any of the likes. If people wanna be heros, go carry those guns and fight in the war, if not the war, let them alone and keep them out of general population! If ya can't hit it with 6 bullets, ya need to go to a gun range and learn how to use a gun honestly. It isn't a guns fault, but till they lock up all the nut cases running loose, ya have to do something, and the shooting item is as good as the shooter that they never catch till it is too late. Mandatory gun & mental health backround checks for all sales and purchases would be a FAIR beginning in my mind. It seems logical and only fair for the safety of other Americans... It is NO solution to these ridiculous massacres that happen... but... It Is A Beginning!!!
That's what they said in Germany, Japan, Great Britain, China, Australia, The Soviet Union, I could go on and on but you get the idea, throughout history million upon millions lost their lives because they were disarmed and could not protect themselves or their families. Hence the second amendment of the Constitution of the United State Of America. Those other countries did not have those constitutional protections so their governments disarmed them and then subjected them to the will of a few. Our forefathers foresaw a danger and dealt with it in the Bill Of Rights, they were much smarter than many these days give them credit for.
Whether or not you believe that citizens NEED assault weapon look-a-likes (Real assault weapons were banned in 1934 and still are) and high capacity magazines, the fact remains that the second amendment gives us the right to own either or both if we wish to. And I'm sorry if you disagree but we will fight tooth and nail to keep our constitutional rights from being trampled on. The part that says "Shall Not Be Infringed" has already taken a beating in 1934, 1968, 1983-84 and again in 1994.
Enough is enough !!!
We've got several Federal gun laws and numerous state gun laws on top of them and yet we've still got high crime rates and mass killings, and we've got cities with complete gun bans that have over 500 shootings a year proving that the laws are not working even if they are enforced, all they are doing is stomping on the rights of honest law abiding citizens.
The Kid at Sandy Hook broke 18 laws while committing the atrocity , do you think one more would have stopped him ?
