    If guns were not allowed in malls, theaters, etc as you implied, that would leave citizens who desired to carry disarmed. Or not visiting that venue which of course is their choice. Shame they should have to make that choice.

    I never implied anything of the kind. Please go back and review my posts. Have a nice evening.

    Could you tell me if you think the second amendment needs to be changed or not and give reasons why.
    Many thanks
    An American with a gun was able to shoot and stop an Islamic terrorist from beheading a second woman in Oklahoma recently. Europeans may soon regret they don't have the same rights and means of protection as do the American people.

    I disagree. It merely uses the government tyranny example. The inherent right to keep and bear arms is affirmed in no uncertain terms, and without restriction.

    I found a great article yesterday about the wording of the 2nd Amendment. An expert in the English language analyzed the wording and explained it in great detail. I have it bookmarked on my iPad, I will post a link later when I get to work.

    You lost this point in your argument. I didnt see you telling me if you handed out your SSN to random strangers.
    Yet you seem to be concerned about one group of strangers and not about another group of strangers. Why is that?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
