    And in Las Vegas they have a place where you can drive construction equipment.

    What part of “Congress shall not abridge” don’t you understand?

    @Randayn, if you’re going to quote, get it right. “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” “We’ll-regulated” is currently understood to be ‘blah-blah’ by the Supremes and gun lovers, but those words may yet better understood in the fullness of time.

    A “well-regulated militia” in the 18th century referred to a general population of men aged 16-60 or so who could shoot well, would show up and fight when ordered, understood military drill and could be relied upon to possess the standard military weapons of the time at their own expense. By that standard, a “well-regulated militia” in our day would refer to a system in which men and women of military age commonly have full auto assault rifles, i.e. machine guns, in their homes. I appreciate @Dangerbunny’s evident full support for such policies.

    Dunno. Where does it say that?

    An amendment (the 18th) has already been repealed once when America found out that it was a bad law.
    Perhaps that precedent should be followed again.

    Perhaps ya’ll should be checking out the country just south of us that runs along our border. Seems that being without guns to protect themselves the average folks there just are victims to be preyed upon by drug cartels or corrupt government officials. Pretty brutal life. That’s in part why so many of those folks are here trying to escape that existence.
    But I know that there are lots folks believe that could never happen here. Without the 2nd amendment, the rest are meaningless.

    Nothing about motor vehicles in the Constitution, either; more people are killed in vehicles accidents.

    Which part of this strip do you object to? This particular cartoon is not leaning one way or the other about gun control. It’s about marketing.

    And here I was worried about opening a can of worms about jackhammer control…

    Some people can’t help but vent their politics in every venue that gives them an opportunity.

    “Wow, your relentless and vehement political posts have completely changed my mind and my vote”, said no one ever.

    Tank is repeating a question commonly posed in these conversations.

    This cartoon doesn’t take a side in the debate.

    My wording wasn’t meant to be a tool of deceit.

    @Tucci

    Yes, I ignorantly deemed a rifle to be a weapon. Now what is your politically-accepted term for “jackhammer”?
