    No because nobody took it away. Somebody who dies in a traffic accident, somebody is punished, but there is no intent.

    Reality "takes away liberty" all the time. Why is it suddenly a horrible thing that some person did it as opposed to it just happening because it's how reality works?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I have always been against guns, not to the extent of repealing the 2nd amendment, but to limiting it. Times have clearly changed , they did not have assault rifles back then. It was common for people to have guns because we relied on militias.

    Why do you want to limit one of our rights. What's to stop government from "limiting" any of other rights if we let them do it with one? Besides, there are already limitations and regulations on second amendment rights, which kind of goes against the whole meaning of having it as a right.

    The purpose of the second was to ensure the freedom of the people. That absolutely included AGAINST tyranny as well as external forces.

    What do you believe an assault rifle is?

    Has human nature changed in the intervening years? Has evil gone out of the world?

    If you are looking for some new federal legislation, upon which one of Congress' enumerated powers would such legislation be based?

    Of course, you know that "insure domestic tranquility" is not one of Congress' enumerated powers.

    SEPTEMBER 2012



    Daily Mail, 20 September 2012

    Two female police officers, aged 23 and 32, were killed while working in Hattersley, Greater Manchester. The unarmed officers were allegedly tricked into going to the property by false reports of a burglary where they were met with a gunfire and grenade attack. A 50k-volt taser was recovered from the scene which the victims may have attempted to discharge to stop the attack. A man who had been wanted for two previous shooting murders of a father and son and 4 attempted murders (see August Incidents), presented himself for arrest at a police station in the city soon after the incident. A 15-year-old boy was later arrested at a school in the area on suspicion of assisting in the attack but has been released on bail (Metro, 22 September 2012).
