    We can just attach language banning abortion to any amendment and it will never pass as the liberals would always protect their right to kill unborn babies at will over stopping a handful of mass murder deaths. The Second Amendment Won, Get Over It, Time To Move On.

    A law with teeth in it will have an effect on the criminals.....
    if you walk down the street in fear of getting shot, I suggest you move or ....arm yourself.

    the number of law abiding sane folks who don't get guns to murder people is in excess of 99%, in case you were wondering.


    a law with teeth in it will have an effect huh?.... well... how does "execution" rate on the "teeth" scale?.. how about life imprisonment?

    yeah, well...those "teeth" are ignored by people who commit murder or mass murder.... do you think they will magically pay attention to the next law with "teeth"?

    I agree. If the "law with teeth" deters someone from going on a killing rampage, then the death penalty would be just as an effective deterrent - and it's not. The death penalty is a just punishment for certain crimes... definitely not a deterrent, otherwise, we would have nobody on death row.

    A tougher law regarding firearm ownership is NOT going to deter those who have heinous criminal mindsets or the criminally insane from carrying out their sick and twisted crime sprees.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    50 more mass murders... there weren't even 50 mass shootings this year. But here is a map of them. I googled it so you don't have to.

    140 people were murderers... and they obtained over half of their weapons legally. 140 people out of 100+mil people who own guns. Do you know what that is?
    100.000.000/140 = 0.000001%

    That is how many bad people who own guns were this year. So that means that 99.9999% gun owners are responsible people. Not the 30-40% that you were talking about. And you can be thankful i didn't slice that 140 people down because only half the weapons were legally obtained. But I said that everybody had legally obtained guns to boost your "reality".

    Ok, so, this is the map of the mass shootings that happened this year.

    Just google "gun related deaths by country" and find your own sources so as not to include my bias.

    How long will it take before a law that's out dated by over 200 years be repealed?

    The founding fathers had the intention of arming their militia against the British.
    how long will it take?... well... are we counting the time it will take to actually repeal it.. or the time for the repeal effort to fail?
    the former will take more years than any of us have left on this earth... the latter can happen rather quickly

    Regarding your argument how do you explain the statistics?

    Also I care more about those dead kids than your rights to have fun with a gun.

    If the law that the Michigan Legislature recently sent to their Governor had been in effect in CT, it's more likely those kids would be alive today...than if all guns were banned.


    On a side note...because I consider your poll to really be just that, a side note...anyone who selects the first 4 choices has shown they really don't know anything about the process to amend our Constitution. The Equal Rights Amendment took DECADES to run its course...and it failed.

    If a perfect storm of events happen down the road, I can see the day when the current interpretation that the gun lobby has successfully pushed for the meaning of the Amendment will be re-evaluated and changed in the minds of most Americans. Then we will begin to get different court decisions which will impact gun ownership but still allow the right to keep and bear arms.
    Yet more proof that haymarket is an ardent advocate for our right to keep and bear arms and staunch supporter of the second amendment.

    exactly.

    99% of us refrain from killing or hurting people because of our personal moral convictions... laws barring such behavior run a distant 2nd, if they are a consideration at all.

    The day that the 2nd Amendment is revised is the day that America died.

    Nothing has changed in 200 years, only the names of the tyranical govts that the people have to be prepared to defend themselves against. American Idol starts soon and the people will forget about this emotional reaction as they have every other one.
