    I tied it earlier, and if this thread is still going tomorrow, I might join once again. Be well, I'm out...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    Your posts have not demonstrated you have any understanding of constitutional construction nor any training in constitutional law. Thus, your posts are not credible as to what I know.

    The Second Amendment recognized a right the founders assumed-to a man-existed. that right was not one that would tolerate federal interference.

    Citizen of the USA here, and I chose "no". Simple reason being, it is not the law abiding, legal gun owners causing problems.

    On a side note, imo, it's too bad you didn't make your poll read something like:

    "I'm an American, and think the 2nd Amendment needs to be amended. "
    "I'm an American, and think the 2nd Amendment doesn't need to be amended. "

    "I'm not an American, and think the 2nd Amendment needs to be amended. "
    "I'm not an American, and think the 2nd Amendment doesn't need to be amended. "

    Being it's a study, the breakdown could have been helpful, as some users don't list their location.

    Needs to be repealed altogether, leaving peaceful jurisdictions free to rid themselves of this war mentality

The language lends itself to the notion that the right to bear arms is for the purposes of security of states, provided by their militias, and that the right of the people (in context, that would be the members of the militia, males ages 17-47, I think the ages) to keep and bear arms (again, in context, for the purpose of state security) shall not be infringed. But for myself, I prefer the traditional interpretation that it is for personal security and extends to all citizens, not just the members of the militia.
    Altho many people like to extend the right to bear arms as presented in the 2A as extending to self defense as well, I disagree. They usually claim it has to do with the inalienable right to life and to defend that life. If that's the case, it's covered elsewhere but not in the 2A.

    With that said, the 2A placed no restrictions on the owning or bearing of those arms. And to use them successfully in a crisis to defend the country, a person must have training (well-regulated). Hence they need to actively train at the very least.

    So I cant disagree with that I believe your point is...but I find it mostly (not completely) irrelevant.

    Even sadder was Australia.
