    Guns, particularly hand guns, are tools for killing humans. They are dangerous, very dangerous tools. Given that the Constitution says they can’t be banned as a dangerous product, like Lawn Jarts, they should at least be well regulated. Gun OWNERS should demonstrate they understand how to safely use and store them (licensing), they should be required to carry a minimum level of insurance to cover the costs they impose should their weapon cause harm (medical for injuries and liability for misuse or unsafe actions), and the gun they have should be registered to its owner as a means of accountability (you can’t enforce the above without knowing whose gun it is). What objections could there be to a system that treats gun OWNERS like we treat automobile OWNERS and if you are left with “One is a right and the other a privilege" then reexamine that right in light of the Supreme’s decision as detailed below. Once you put that objection to bed, I can’t imagine what you are left with.

    Supreme Court Decision regarding the 2nd Amendment, 2008, District of Columbia vs. Heller (Source: Wikipedia) :

    “Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues. The Court’s opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.

    Because [the plaintiff] Heller conceded at oral argument that the D. C. licensing law is permissible if it is not enforced arbitrarily and capriciously, the Court assumes that a license will satisfy his prayer for relief and does not address the licensing requirement. Assuming he is not disqualified from exercising Second Amendment rights, the District must permit Heller to register his handgun and must issue him a license to carry it in the home."

    Didn’t he just get up from the right side of the bed and now he’s getting back in on the left?

    Finally, a positive impact from the sequester.

    Long Life to Respectful Troll. May his seed be productive in the uteruses he thus quickens with his sterling logic.

    There’s a fountain in your future. I can almost see it.

    Sometimes you have to bare your teeth.

    Global sea levels will soon inundate Florida drowning snakes both human and animal, but Texas may have to be disinvited into the Union.

    Florida is sinking anyway. Move out while you still can. Your homes are uninsurable and your water increasing brackish. Pythons eat your pets. Why not move to New York? We also have steamy heat in the summer and all the water you can drink.

    It’s not like we have anything important to work on. Bridges and roads are self repairing, roofs paint themselves white, and there’s enough solar energy in the blacktop to fry up an omelette.

    “The dual revelations, in rapid succession, also suggested that someone with access to high-level intelligence secrets had decided to unveil them in the midst of furor over leak investigations. Both were reported by The Guardian, while The Post, relying upon the same presentation, almost simultaneously reported the Internet company tapping. The Post said a disenchanted intelligence official provided it with the documents to expose government overreach.” – NYT, June 6.

    Trust me the use of the word “disenchanted” will mean this poor schmuck is toast. Why did we need the adjective? Why not let his motives be revealed in his own way? It is almost a double cross. The official gives up a state secret, and the journalists screw him while making room on their mantles for the Pulitzer.
