    “Assault” on the 2nd amendment.

    Yeah, that’s were doing when we slow the flow of guns to psychos or restrict the sale of high-capacity magazines. We’re assaulting part of the Bill of Rights.

    yeah, lets re-write the 15th amendment to keep unwanted, illegal and ignorant people from voting .BUT, why should we change the 2nd amendment to keep the same people from buying assault firearms and explosives?

    Yeah sure, let’s talk about gun control instead of mental illness. It is election season after all LOL! Just like we preferred to talk about “cyber bullying” when a gay college student commits suicide instead of suicidal depression. We’ll even put an innocent kid in jail before we’re ready to talk about this. This guy is nuts to the point he decided he’s the joker. He’s broken and there’s something wrong with our society that we don’t pay attention to these issues that lead to this massacre. The signs are there and we need to start paying attention to things we’d rather not talk about.

    I agree that we should follow the law, based on the Constitution. So, where is the observance of the part of the second amendment that speaks of a well-regulated militia? If you are going to support one part of the second amendment, shouldn’t all of it be supported? I own long guns, and reasonable regulation is necessary. Nobody needs the kind of high-capacity magazines used in the movie massacre except for criminal behavior.

    Exactly. It’s an assault on our rights any time a gun merchant is subject to government restrictions, but taking thousands of qualified voters off the voter lists is considered defending democracy.

    SCOTUS in the D.C. case affirmed a “personal right” to possess firearms, AND REAFFIRMED that the STATE has the RIGHT TO REGULATE such possession, but not outright “ban” ownership without cause.

    Very good response, nicely written. However, you forgot to speak about the well-regulated part again. Please comment on what you feel reasonable regulation to be. I am a long gun owner and support the right of citizens to own firearms.

    By the way, I agree that the Founding Fathers were wise and far-seeing men. I think that we should support all parts of the constitution as amended, not just those parts that suit you or me.

    Just as a footnote (but obviously not a footnote to Caleb and his family), this is from a story about the aftermath of the shooting: “Caleb Medley, a 23-year-old aspiring comedian, was listed in critical condition on Tuesday at University of Colorado Denver Hospital. A website set up to raise money for his care because the Medleys have no health insurance, www.calebmedley.com/help, said he had lost his right eye, suffered brain damage and was in a medically induced coma.” No health insurance. The story went on to say that the bill could be more than $2 million. Of course people will donate, but isn’t there a better system?

    As the GOP keeps re-doing the argument against ACA is NOT WORKING. It isn’t working and THEY are NOT doing WORK!

    In Ontario, those judged by a psychiatrist to be a danger to themselves or others can be confined against their will for a specified time. Such a person has a right to a hearing, so no one can simply be put away without recourse. There’s more, but I don’t know the details.

    Oh yea, we are! The various and sundry belief systems of unlimited automatic guns and 100 round magazines is one of of your simple-minded “nation of LAW” silliness speaks volumes about you.

    Were you EVER close to a Law Library? Your statementents don’t support your blather.

    I like the Ontario solution. And as for the gun registry, it did squat because Harper killed it. There was still use for the database to help law enforcement…even if it did cost too much.

    I’ve read up on the Swiss. I admire their system, and that they have much less gun violence than we do in the United States.

    Since we have a great military, and spend huge amounts of money for it, I don’t lie awake at night worrying about another country invading us. If one does, I’ll be right there, firing aimed shots with a bolt action rifle. Much more effective.

    I’ve read the Constitution, and authentic quotes from our Founding Fathers. I don’t find anything in them that suggests we civilians should have the kind of firepower you suggest. I’m willing to learn though, if you can refer me to some.
