    Could you tell me if you think the second amendment needs to be changed or not and give reasons why.
    Many thanks
    It could use some clarification but if anything, it needs to be strengthened. Adam Lanza's idiocy shouldn't prevent my responsible and non-psychotic husband from having guns to protect his family.

    I don't have concerns about pistols and rifles, but as I said, it's the high capacity magazines and the devil-may-care attitude about their use in assault weapons that will eventually tip the balance. As I say, it's the political 2nd Amendment will eventually sacrifice the amendment itself.
    The high capacity magazine argument, like all anti-gun arguments, will do absolutely nothing to keep them out of the hands of criminals. Why does the modern liberal mind have such a difficult time understanding such a simple concept?

    The second amendment is perfectly fine the way it is.

    Says who?

    Besides, let the people within every state vote for what regulations they want within their own state in terms of high capacity magazines.

    Please read the Constitution, and get back to us. The 2nd Amendment is not a states rights issue. States do not have a legal right to regulate firearms.

    "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

    I see "well regulated militia" within the 2nd amendment. Doesn't specify who regulates it.

    Gun control is very much a state issue. Hence why so many states have so many different laws on gun control, just look at NY and then look at some state out west.

    Please educate yourself, since your Jr. High teachers are obviously failing you. You really should actually read the Constitution, it is obvious you never have. Dude, it's all over the interwebz.

    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

    States have and continue to impose gun restrictions or loosen gun restrictions.

    This is a state issue, the states determine the amount of gun control within their border.

    Exactly. What's wrong with the current wording? It is the criminal element which mis-uses "arms", not law-abiding citizens.

    So in your estimation, the Constitution should simply be ignored? I posted the portion of it that proves you wrong.
