So ....where were all the gun owners who have all these guns "for protection" when a fucking shit load of KIDS were gunned down in school? Why did none of you protect them with your guns? Legal guns are for protection, right?
Oh, that's right, because they aren't for protecting anyone other than yourself when someone tries to harm you. Fuck everyone else.

If you follow the NRA logic, those kindergarden children should have been carrying concealed weapons and they could have wiped out that asshole.

There is no reason on earth any person should be allowed to own any of these assault weapons much less pistols etc. that are not meant for hunting.

The "right to bear arms" in the constitution has been so badly interpreted by the courts it is a joke.

That was meant for militia, not "cowboys" who go out and show off by waving their weapons around.
I agree with you hooah.

Re: Second Amendment
Faith writes:

The intention was to preserve us from foreign enemies as well as possibly the nation's own standing army which historically easily becomes a threat to the people, but obviously it should be effective for these crazy individual enemies as well.

Using this logic, shouldn't all americans have the "right" to own and possess the type weapons the army possesses.
For example, tanks, rocket launchers, missles, fighter jets, nuclear weapons?

How else can we defend ourselves against the government army, navy, air force and coast guard?

Edited by shadow71, : No reason given.

On what basis could you say that? If guns had not been at his house he might well have still obtained them. If guns had been completely illegal he might still have obtained them. If guns had been unobtainable he might simply have used something else.

.

In this case he did try to buy a rifle type weapon but because of the 2 week waiting period he gave up and went home and got mom's.

So the "mania" didn't pass, I guess?

We will never know, he didn't wait the 2 weeks, but went right home and got the guns.
