    If you require more proof, I can provide statements from folks expressing much the same thing as Mr. Lott.
    And what exactly would that agenda be?

    Let me help. "To protect and preserve the 2nd Amendment". It seems to me that their very existence is the byproduct of the actions of those who seek to subvert the constitution.

Much more harm, to our rights and freedom, can be done by passing restrictive laws and ceding ever more control/power to the gov't by voting for (and by) morons, than can be done by any single individual with a gun. Many elections are decided by less than 5% of the voters. Calls for adding the requirement of a simply presenting a valid, state issued, photo ID to vote are often rejected, much less adding any tests of voter competency, e.g. naming the current US representatives, two Senators and one House representative. Those that are very quick to demand "strict qualification tests" for getting one's 2A rights seem to be the very same folks that would deny any "reasonable restriction" being paced on the right to vote. I will take your "public safety" concerns seriously when you pass and enforce laws to permanently lock up all repeat felony offenders (and the criminally insane) and require only citizens with valid, state issued, photo IDs showing current residency be allowed to vote (only once and only as themselves) in a given election.
    Seems kind of silly not to recognize an issue and consider the consequences of that issue. I don't believe we can legislate everything, but we should at least recognize the inherent dangers involved. They are dangers even from those who are not repeat offenders or criminally insane.

    I suspect not. Few could even remain calm enough to react appropriately.

    I've seen first hand outcomes with civilians with weapons as a paramedic. Tens, never picked up one shooting a criminal. But lord, the idiots. I tell you, there is a danger. I just don't know how to keep the stupid, the awkward, the unskilled from having them. But they are the bigger threat.

    Perhaps a solution might be to have the government armed, like Sheriff Andy Taylor, and the public allowed one bullet each, like Deputy Barney Fife. Of course the gun that accepts that single bullet will be kept in a separate location.

    It might be time to treat the civilian population of The United States of America like 300 million Barney Fifes, just as they do in Europe. This is a solution that would have broad appeal to the Barney Fife leftists everywhere, though admittedly a more difficult sell to the Any Taylors of the world.

    You do know why they only let Barney have one bullet, don't you?

    Sheriff Andy Taylor never carried a gun, if memory serves me correct...

    I suppose the same could be said of voting rights!

    Probably not, but I do like good sarcasm.
