    80 was an exageration; but it makes a point. As for fire power. I'm talking about the firepower of the Aurora shooter and Columbine just to name two. And yes, there are certain types of weapons not availble to the public, and that's good.

    You folks will always move the goalposts over the Grand Canyon no matter what the other side gives.
    We call you GOPs the "false-equivalency" party after its originator Eric Cantor.

    You simply want to make up your own rules as you go.
    I'll stick with my common sense thread supporting Texas with concealed carry in schools--as an example of who I am .

    The reason our atomic bomb murder rate didn't make much impact on the chart is because we don't allow access to atomic bombs. The reason our elephant trampling murder rate is so low is that we don't allow access to trained battle elephants. If we didn't allow access to guns...
    that is moronic. why is the murder rate going down while the number of guns in circulation as well as the number of people carrying guns is increasing.

    I think those who would take our guns away are in conspiracy with criminals and should be treated the same

    Actually 80 would not be an exaggeration with a different means, and the people should have access to the same types of handheld weapons as might be used against us...

    Re: Do you think the second amendment needs amended?

    TurtleDude and I could sit down and hash this 2nd amendment out at one of his high-lifer clubs at the local level.
    Just as you and I could hash out Paul Ryan's tax plan so you'd quit whining about the 16th amendment.

    It will happen some day at the local level--called Sen. Coburn's Constitutional Convention--
    which you know I've been pusing for the 4.5 years you've known me .

    You're not getting it. The guys who shoot multiple people; ya'know - the ones we're talking about - were, up until those points law abiding citizens right?

    Again: this isn;t rocket science. The OP asked for an opinion and I gave one. I dont know why the "law abiding citizen" argument; weak as it is, has to dragged into an opinion.

    So, let me ask you this: do you think that it is possible; by that I mean, could it be done with enough states behind it; to alter the 2nd amendment? I know about "infinged", but with enough people behind it, it is probable that th 2nd could be - adjusted...

    I think that's a much more interesting discussion.

    My apologies, there was to be a question mark. I edited the post to fix that.
