    I recognize there are those who want to apply an "it was different then" test to the Constitution. The "Living Constitution" movement is certainly much louder today than in previous times.

    What should be considered is the wisdom of history that influenced the Founding fathers, not the immediate reality of the times that existed when they took on drafting the second most important matter of business.

    There is NO way you can say that with the certainty you exhibit here...It is foolish bravado.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    The NRA is responsible for gun proliferation. They've created a gun culture which has resulted in a huge supply of guns. They're cheap and easy to get because that's the way the NRA wants it.

    The issue isn't "that simple." No one buys a cay to drive drunk. Killing is the sole purpose of guns. Gun owners buy them because they want to kill someone.

    Guns are made for killing. They're made to make killing fast, safe and easy. When a disturbed person reaches the critical point, an easily available gun makes the killing much, much more possible.

    Agreed, I think we're at the point where all administrators should be armed and receive firearms training.

    You're part of the problem, then. You and everyone like you buys a gun for the remote possibility you might need it someday have contributed to the creation of a huge supply of guns which makes them relatively cheap and easy to get for those who would use them inappropriately.

    No, not at all. You are seriously wrong about that. We buy guns for hunting, target shooting, collecting, hobbies and tinkering (gunsmithing), or just because we want to.

    It is no wonder you are anti-gun, as you are ignorant about them, with the exception of your fears and imagination.
