    Re: constitutional amendment guaranteeing full auto assault weapon ownership

    The Constitution was written in a way that makes it timeless.
    If you were to put in specific language, it would require an amendment every couple of decades.
    As a dreamer of dreams and a travellin' man, I have chalked up many a mile.
    Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks and I've learned much from both of their styles!

    When I do a search I find no such consensus among DP members. But even if there were, and you remove the nukes, bunker busters, and AA, everything else I mention can be deployed by a soldier. And that is still a very scary scenario for most people.

    Re: constitutional amendment guaranteeing full auto assault weapon ownership

    This sounds like something the tea-bagging conservatives are in favor of.
    This is exactly opposite the direction we should be in, if we really want peace....I have my doubts...

    The problem is, many conservatives have no trust in their government...And history proves them to be correct.

    Our government needs much greater participation of the people, IMO.
    Its a matter of interest and caring, NOT guns and ammo.

    Re: constitutional amendment guaranteeing full auto assault weapon ownership

    I'm really not sure about this one. I have friends that have had their semis converted to full auto using a small gunsmith's mod kit. They're illegal as Hell, but only for some people (law abider).

    My only doubts stem from the people that are relatively new to guns that don't exhibit proper safety measures (like my buddy Hap Hazard).

    But hey, if that doesn't scare anyone else, I'll put my paranoia aside and say Yes, they should be legal.

    But then, others have stated that the 2nd amendment already allows for auto weapons. So has anyone ever challenged making autos illegal? That would probably cost a fortune in attorney fees. Would the Supremes rule in their favor?

    I guess I'll vote No, the 2nd already allows for militia weaponry.

    I don't see an amendment as necessary as we already have the 2nd amendment. It just needs to be properly upheld instead of whittled away to nothing.

    Also, felons once they have completed the full of their punishment period, should be allowed to own guns again.

    Somehow I doubt you would want Americans owning rockets, canons, Ballista, bombs, grenades,Mortar, Hwacha, Ribauldequin, fire arrows or any other types of arms used around or before the constitution was written.

    The right to keep and bear arms applies to all Americans.It is blatantly unconstitutional for the government to infringe on the rights of Americans just because they served time behind bars and it is unconstitutional for the government to infringe on the types of arms someone can get. The 2nd amendment regarding the peoples right to keep an bear arms without any infringements is a restriction on the government. I would only support clarifying the 2nd amendment to include a punishment of ten years in prison and exile to the worst country on the planet for elected officials,appointed offcials, law enforcement, judges and anyone else who who attempt to subvert the constitution.

    No. The second is just one sentence and we can't even follow that without an argument.

    Only a lib-tard or occu-tard would see something wrong with trying to reenforce 2nd amendment rights.

    So do many liberals.But its funny that many of them want more government control.

    Our government needs much greater participation of the people, IMO.
    It needs a much greater participation of people who pay attention to politics.


    Its a matter of interest and caring, NOT guns and ammo.
    When the government decides to **** on other constitutional rights it is the guns and ammo that will get them back.Not protesting or voting because if the government can **** on the 2nd amendment it can most certainly **** on the 1st,14th,15th,19th,23rd,24th, and 26th amendments and anything else in the constitution regarding the right to vote,protests,free speech and peaceful assembly.

    You do know what the recidivism rate is, do you not ?
    And punishment has been shown NOT to be effective..
    They. and all others, should only be allowed any gun ownership after they prove that their criminal past is indeed past, to my satsifaction..
    Public security is far more important than so-called gun rights.
    We are not living in the 1700s any more.....news flash to the conservatives.....and libertarians
