    Ah, sorry 'bout that. I get a little defensive about the 2nd Amendment, and I'm still new here.

    I would think that the law abiding, responsible Americans that we hold up when criticizing any amount of regulation, who happen to have CHL's, would leave their weapon at home when they are going out to get drunk.

    The courts would not rule on the issue: congress would. Hey, I think it's a probability the way things are going, and as the older generation dies off, and if some serious attention isnt paid to this trend , (how many big shootings have we had recently?), as the next two generations begin to separate themselves from the tradition of the 2nd Amendment, that possibility is going to move toward a probability.

You proffered no argument about cops other than basically saying we need to ban stuff so bad guys won't get it--you weren't able to understand that makes you a gun banner
    I'm not playin' you game dude. I'm not arguing old material in a new thread.

    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.
    Yeah, not so much.

    that's why we gun owners spend so much time teaching kids the fun and importance of shooting

    I also teach them to never ever trust gun banners.

    You missed the point. The courts are now used to shape society in lieu of the Constitutional process. It's a lot easier to get a few to agree as opposed to a vast majority...

    If a certain weapon, is restricted from the public, how then is a criminal going to get it? Said weapons are traceable to their destination.
