    How long will it take to repeal the 2nd amendment?

    The US ranks one of the highest in gun related deaths in the world, and of the top developed countries the highest.

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    How long will it take before a law that's out dated by over 200 years be repealed?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

    My estimates are about 60-80 years if the current trend continues because you know... people are willing to throw away their rights, freedoms and responsibilities for empty promises.

    Besides, it will serve no purpose. Law-biding sane people don't get guns to do murders and if when they do have guns, they don't use them to kill people. And criminals will get guns regardless of whatever gun law there is because criminals, by their very nature, don't care about the laws.

    You're nieve if you think people are rational as individuals.

    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.

    repeal?

    There are numerous ways to improve the system and safety, etc etc etc - without impinging on the amendments.

    Number of murders by guns do not matter, the only thing that matters is number of murders total, regardless of what was used. When you look at actual murders, the US ranks 107th in the world in murder rate.

    You're still operating under the assumption that making it illegal for law abiding citizens to have guns will save more people, when there in fact is no correlation. Switzerland has almost as many guns per head as we do, but their murder rate is a super small fraction of ours, and one of the lowest in the world. It doesn't have anything to do with guns, it has to do with our society, which we really need to work on.

    When 800,000 Rwandans died due to machetes... did we hear an outcry to ban them?

    What happened is very sad, but repealing the 2nd Amendment will make us less safe, not more. We will be at the mercy of criminals, and the most vulnerable... women... will be subjected to more barbaric behavior; namely rape.

    If we repeal the 2nd Amendment, then we should abolish automobiles. 40,000 to 50,000 Americans die a year due to their use. Perhaps we should outlaw anal sex too; it's the superhighway to HIV AIDS. Perhaps we should outlaw alcohol... it leads to a lot of misery.

    You want safe? Then outlaw everything that brings risk.

    This tragedy will fall into the "never waste a crisis" moment for Obama and his crew. It seems we've had the signals already.

    I did say weeks ago he wanted to inflict major damage on the 2nd Amendment... that's what fast & Furious was about. Did he weep when Mexicans were being slaughtered by guns his administration ran? No. They went into coverup mode.

    What has happened is sad and comes at the worst of times, but it isn't reason to make our nation's citizens less safe and repeal their rights.

    It will never happen, and it wouldn't solve the problem if it did.

    I do not see this on the horizon any time in our future.

    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.

    Never.

    I don't consider myself to be a 'gun nut', but I do own firearms. I use them for sport (shooting range) and they are locked safely away. I've obtained them legally and I have them for protection - IF NEED BE. I don't sleep with one next to me, I don't have them out in the open and my children (both teens) are well aware of safe gun handling protocol.

    Some drugs are illegal in this United States, but yet people can get ahold of them if they want them. Making guns illegal to own (repealing the 2nd) is not the answer, as people with bad intentions will find a way to have them.

    So sorry, but nobody is taking my firearms from me.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    How about the right to walk down the street without a fear of being shot ?
    And these law-abiding "sane" men, are they 20% of the population ? 40% ?....
    A law with teeth in it will have an effect on the criminals.....
