    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The NRA argument: No use passing a law against guns because the bad guys will ignore them.
    How pathetic they are. And how very dangerous.

    ‘Braindead used to be sane, reasonable and made well thought out posts. It appears our friend’s account has been hacked by a RWNJ.’

    Naw, not hacked, at least not yet. I’m not above sarcasm, though.
    -
    Every time, and I mean every time, the subject of gun control comes up, the legion of Fox “news” viewers will subvert the discussion by stating a variation of my statement that any gun control of any kind leads to confiscation of all guns. midaswelby and Ima did not disappoint. The ZIT can’t be far behind.
    -
    Other variations:
    -
    Banning one type of weapon is the same a banning them all. That means you cannot even discuss banning one type of weapon.
    -
    A ban of one or more types of weapons can’t be enforced. If that were true, wouldn’t everyone have their own hand grenade? You know, just in case..
    -
    Guns don’t kill people. I guess the guy in New York who set fires and then shot firemen from a distance would have been just as effective with a knife.
    -
    Knives and other weapons are just as deadly. See above.
    -
    When you ban guns, only outlaws will have them. Except that the mainstream of the discussion has never proposed banning all guns. NEVER.
    -
    What I was trying to do with my initial statement is to point out that useful discussion cannot take place when all discussion has to address the NRA mantra.

    Why don’t we ever see guns on trial for shooting someone?

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

    That’s interesting. They made you buy your own gun, bayonet, and field equipment so you could go to war at their behest. I can’t decide whether that’s funny or rude. (or the government couldn’t afford to buy or was just to cheap equip it’s troops)
