    If we could get that down to the kinds of firearmsavailable fire
    firearms available at the time the second amendment was written, then the perpetrator would be very lucky to get off a second shot!!

    Right, Robert. And you could use the First Amendment to tell everyone about it. (You do know how to set type by hand, don’t you?)

    @Robert Landers

    You mean like this?
    The 2nd Amendment, and a little side information for your enjoyment…

    Think you might be interested in this…
    To Quote; 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.
    And, just for the fun of it, here is what was passed by Congress as the meaning of a Militia;
    Each 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.

    Don’t really see anything there about owning an AR-15, or an AK-47…

    Sad, but probably true-if we get even that.

    So in the case of an armed attack on the USA by say some obscure radical group, said group armed with various automatic weapons you want our militia (the civilian standing reserve force of age and of physical fitness (LOL) so as to be considered fit for service) to take the field outfitted with 16th century technology.

    But I get your point. There should be some program and some requirement for citizens to be prepared and “trained” to respond.

    @Bruce4671

    I kind of wonder what the reaction would be if the general membership of the N.R.A was told that they can have whatever weapons they want, BUT, under law passed by Congress, they HAVE to be in the National Guard, and serve the typical “One Weekend a Month, and 2 weeks a year” term of service?
    The above law WAS Passed by Congress, by the way. Granted, it was in 1797, but it was passed…

    I’d say that to qualify for a concealed-carry license, one should undergo the same rigorous training as a police officer- since we’re asking these citizens to make the same life-and-death snap decisions that cops might have to in the course of their duties.
    But there’s some people who apparently believe that just putting a firearm in some average Joe’s hands makes him a perfectly rational creature, able to respond fearlessly and without error in even the most dangerous situations.

    Notice the stipulation “and shall..provide himself with a good musket or firelock” — in other words, the government didn’t supply the weapons, it was up to the individual to supply his own. Thus the stipulation in the second amendment, “a well regulated militia being necessary…” In other words, if there was going to be a militia, and if the government wasn’t going to supply the weapons, then individuals had to be able to. But this is probably all water under the bridge, the Courts have ruled.

    “No, the Truth, it means banning high capacity clips will not stop mass shootings”

    But it will make some people will feel better. Like they did something.

    You’re right Tigger. Lets just put vending machines on the street filled with assualt guns and cop killing bullets and other articles approved by the NRA.
