    And what right permits the nation to go beyond that tipping point?

    If I think I understand what you are getting at, I think I might have already addressed it post #810.

    its a stupid question I have already answered

    there is absolutely no merit that idiocy because we know that even if there were no gun rights recognized by our laws and constitution there would still be guns in this nation as there are in at least a hundred other countries that have no right to KBA

    Is that too much to ask?

    Now where is the tipping point gentlemen? Where is the tipping point where we go from being able to control this and where we have significant amounts of collateral damage like we did with Columbine, with Virginia Tech with Ohio and with too many other places to list?

    Where is the tipping point gentlemen?
    I'm with ya bro. As much as I love shooting whitetail and clay pideons, I would gladly sacrifice my enjoyment if it meant that there woule never be another life taken with a gun.

    But, sad to say, that's just not the reality of the situation.

    I think, if you understand THAT, we are both pretty much in agreement here.

    denied, the second amendment has nothing to do with VT since his possession of those weapons was illegal the second he bought them
