    First step towards tyranny: Remove the guns from the hands of people.

    Tyranny…here in the U.S.?!? Really!!! We don’t live in the 1700’s. We don’t need buggy whips anymore either due to a change in how American’s live. Same goes for firearms. I certainly don’t propose we make firearms illegal however isn’t there something that can be done to make them less accessable? Perhaps it’s “arm chair” quarterbacking, however it pains me greatly to see “children” killed by the use of firearms in of all places at “school” (grade, junior, high &/or college) and I’m not to happy when it happens to adults either like in DC. Frankly, we live in a society where “protection” should come from the police and not some play on “stand your ground”.

    Even the National Guard in all states in the U.S. regulate who has access to the guns, and sets limits on when they can be loaded, and carried outside the armories!! For one thing, if you don’t qualify with the firearm on the range, you DO NOT get one!

    Just of course a minor point the NRA doesn’t believe in, like they’re maintaining a database the government is prohibited to maintain on gun owners!

    The 2nd amendment was written when a, "gun"’, was a device that took a user 30 seconds to1 full minute to load & fire each round. Not even the Founding Fathers would be so STUPID as to make it a Constitutional Right for anyone to own a machine that can KILL 1000 PEOPLE in 30 to 60 seconds!

    Don’t forget to thank uncle ronnir raygun for that. He started closing mental health facilities in California and then took it nationwide. Sure he saved money and put people out of work, but hay, he saved some money at first. With the unstable on the street, the police and courts had to take over, all the savings gone.

    That of course is military use. Of course it should be tracked.

    Meanwhile on the Shipyards base, no one can carry except the perimeter guards. How do I know? My brother and my sister-in-law work there and in other Naval facilities around D.C. I’m glad they and my other friends weren’t working there at the time, but if so they would be sitting ducks. As we have found out, the shooter got past the gate with a legitimate albeit old I.D. Again, “gun free zones” don’t work. Even the fastest law enforcement is not quick enough to prevent 13 people from being shot. When you are in a “gun free zone” with a shooter around you are on your own for at least 10-15 min.
    You will not be able to restrict gun ownership and usage. The culture has to change. It boils down to how people cope when they get into a rage or have a mental issue. We need to invest more in education and mental health care. As this slow recovery moves on there is going to be more and more pressure as the middle classes dissolves. I would except more shootings may happen. I don’t see how bans and background checks are going to stop that. Fix the people. Not access to the inanimate objects.

    Being a foreigner, I really do not understand your devotion to this amendment? I can see the reasoning for putting it in there – namely to defend the US against a British land invasion, but that’s hardly valid today.

    Are you looking to defend yourself against the evil government or something? You do know that Obama will not be driving down your road in a tank? It will be a fresh-faced youth in a uniform (probably your neighbour’s son) knocking on your door asking for your gun. And you want to defend yourself against him?

    And incidentally it’s surely too late. You have way too many guns around to fix the problem by now. We’ll wait for you to kill yourselves off, and then we’ll move into what you have left of your country and try it again, but this time getting it right.

    and mdavis4183, Somalia has everything you want in a country, very small weak government, and no control of guns. Enjoy your trip!

    The GOP hasn’t really done anything about improving mental health in this country, either. That means spending government money, and they’re ideologically opposed to that as much as to any further control of the flow of weapons.

    The path is not clear yet, a Judas goat is needed to lead them to the slaughter.
    I hate when I like your comments, we are unlike in so many ways.

    I wish some of that white-out had fallen on the “Affordable Health Care Act.”

    Note: the ’toon references the Second, and that “Well regulated” militia, which was my point about the “Guard”.

    Agent Smith: well aware that gate guards, most often any more contractors, are the only armed folks on lots of posts, like Pt. Hueneme, Beal AFB, and even posts where there ARE lots of guns inside, LOCKED UP IN ARMORIES!!

    But what really gets me, is every time there IS a shooting incident, all the bleating from the right and NRA types, who can’t even come up with a single independent thought on the issue, or any way to actually solve problems without methods that would most likely only get MORE people killed! They just wag their stubby little tails, and cry that there’s a wolf behind every bush that will eat them, if they don’t have a gun. (That most folks likely haven’t a clue how to use effectively!)

    Yes, they have “whited out” any sanity, so Bennett’s message IS lost on them.

    Defend ourselves??? Have you noticed the government has tanks, drones, missiles etc… While you are defending the second amendment the government is destroying the other 9 in the bill of rights – when are all 2nd amendment defenders going to step up and defend us?

    Again with motherjones. No wonder you’re so messed up.
