    Everyone knows that if even one type of gun is made illegal, or even one type of ammunition or magazine made illegal, it will inevitably lead to the confiscation of all guns.

    Only if said guns are abused – so I guess you just don´t abuse them.

    Really? Last time I looked, the Thompson Sub-Machine Gun, with the circular clip, A.K.A. The Elliot Ness/ Al Capone Special was illegal, but there are plenty of other guns out there.
    I guess that maybe this means banning one type of gun or magazine does NOT lead to the banning of all guns…
    That’s kind of a blanket statement.

    Remember 20 years ago when it was background checks and handguns? It’s just a minor pain to buy a handgun.

    Lets see, according to the Census Bureau, in 2007, 43,945 deaths from motor vehicle accidents, and 12,632 deaths from homicide with a gun, I say vehicle travel is more deadly and we should ban all vehicle travel… It would save more lives.

    Well, let’s see. Most deaths in Motor Vehicles are the result of accidents, an UNPLANNED event.
    Very few deaths from Motor Vehicles are the result of someone going on a rampage through a crowded Shopping Center in a Buick, or attacking people in a Movie Theater with a Ford, or going from Classroom to Classroom killing kids with a Toyota.
    There are a LOT more planned killings with a gun Per.Capita. then with a car, so that is a specious argument.
    Yes, there ARE accidental shootings of people, I know, but a gun is designed to do ONE THING, and that is to KILL STUFF!

    Banning firearms won’t reduce the number of criminal uses of firearms any more than banning drugs reduced the number of drug abusers. It will ensure an unarmed opposition.

    @Ms. Ima

    But it has been proven over and over that bullets enter the body and cause people to stop living. Ergo, bullets DO kill people. And we’re not blaming the inanimate objects – we’re blaming the people who insist on using them. And the best way to make sure those creeps don’t use them is to not let them have them in the first place.

    This constitutional right – which has already been intentionally misinterpreted and abused by the rightwing – NEEDS to be taken away or at the least revised. Just because it’s in the constitution doesn’t mean it can’t and shouldn’t be changed. That’s what amendments are for.

    Oh, and regarding abortion…. Since the unborn are not legally people, they have no constitutional rights. Considering that so many anti-abortion folks don’t even want to allow contraception – when there’s NO human life at stake – I’d say the NO CHOICE crowd needs to rethink their stance. Besides, if you can’t take care of the people you have living right now, why are you trying so hard to make sure more unwanted people are brought into the world?

    “This constitutional right – which has already been intentionally misinterpreted and abused by the rightwing – .”

    The Federalist and Anti-Federalist Papers dispute this part of your statement as do statements made by many of the Founding Fathers. Your premise is also disputed by 213 years of Supreme Court decisions.

    “….NEEDS to be taken away or at the least revised”

    And this part of your post will be contentious with the American populace for eternity!

    Since abortion has been legalized, the overall crime rate has declined. Possibly because less unwanted children, who are most likely to become criminals, are being born. If you want less crime and less killing, ensure that everyone has access to contraception and, if necessary, abortion services instead of complaining that providing them infringes on religious rights. This would also cut back on the number of people on welfare, the number of future unemployed, the number of hungry or homeless…
    If you’re going to complain about the poor, the welfare babies, anyone who is “sponging off” of your “hard work”, why do you insist on preventing them from access to the things that will solve that problem?

    We now have a well regulated militia, the Armed Forces of the United States of America.

    “Amendments are amendments and can be amended again.”

    I don’t know where the “vehement” comes from on the defense of Amendment II. It’s a simple matter to look up those aforementioned Papers and comments to find out the intent of the Founding Fathers. I sometimes tire of people linking “bear arms” and “militia”.

    As for Amendments IV, V, and VI, I have no idea where you came up with my lack of defense for those amendments. I think you posted that in the hopes that I haven’t defended them rather than the reality of the fact that I have. A few months back I was quite critical of sections of the Patriot Act and the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2012 that contradicted those Amendments.

    Not going to get any deeper into this argument except to show you something, just for the fun of it…

    On May 8, 1792, Congress passed “[a]n act more effectually to provide for the National Defence, by establishing an Uniform Militia throughout the United States” requiring:[E]ach and every free able-bodied white male citizen of the respective States, resident therein, who is or shall be of age of eighteen years, and under the age of forty-five years (except as is herein after excepted) shall severally and respectively be enrolled in the militia…[and] every citizen so enrolled and notified, shall, within six months thereafter, provide himself with a good musket or firelock, a sufficient bayonet and belt, two spare flints, and a knapsack, a pouch with a box therein to contain not less than twenty-four cartridges, suited to the bore of his musket or firelock, each cartridge to contain a proper quantity of powder and ball: or with a good rifle, knapsack, shot-pouch and powder-horn, twenty balls suited to the bore of his rifle, and a quarter of a pound of powder; and shall appear, so armed, accoutred and provided, when called out to exercise, or into service, except, that when called out on company days to exercise only, he may appear without a knapsack.97Thought you all might be interested to see what was ORIGINALLY considered to be a “Well-Regulated Militia”
