You fail to understand the issue. One need not show a need in order to exercise a right.Why do Americans feel the need to carry Ak47 assault rifles, Uzi's, and M4A1's?
You cannot possibly show this to be true.I agree that using them for sporting is completely ok, but we all know 50% of people that own firearms do not lock them up properly to avoid theft and accidents with chilidren.
All of which is illegal. How do you propose w emake it more illegal?Its amazing how easy some kids can buy guns, and that includes semi-automatic guns on the streets these days..
They are, of course, correct. Making it harder for the law abiding to get a gun doesn't make it harder for a criminal to get a gun.Republicans complain that making it hard to buy a gun, is just another stupid Obama policy.
Enforce the laws we have now. Punish criminals to the full extent of the law.May I ask these people what THEIR solution is?
They meant to preserve the effectiveness of the militia. To do that, the right to keep and beard arms suitable for this purpose were protected.Its pretty easy to understand that our founding fathers did not mean Army-Grade assault rifles, and semi-automatic weapons when they wrote "the right to bare arms".
Thus, "army-grade assault rifles" are EXACTLY the kind of "arms" protected by the 2nd; it is impossible to soundly argue otherwise.
Ah - the ad hom, final refuge of those who have run out of talking points.Times have changed, and that calls for gun regulations to change. Pretty simple to understand really, if your not an arrogant red neck republican.
