    Could you tell me if you think the second amendment needs to be changed or not and give reasons why.
    Many thanks

    Original poster still hasn't shown up since his join date.

    I guess he wasn't interested in the results...

    He posted the same poll on another board using another name but it was the same poster.

    and I don't recall him sticking around there either.

    I wonder how many schools in Scotland assign a study on the U.S. Second Amendment?

    the Constitution has NOT CHANGED since the previous dozens of times I gave you the language in Article I Section 8 of the US Constitution.

    An you know that.

    Why do you keep tap dancing around my other question? Afraid it may bolster my point?
    What other question is it that you want to ask of me?

    You really have no point to bolster.

    Can I support what quote I posted? the Reagan quote? I think it perfectly summarizes the feelings of large numbers of Americans on firearms and that is why I presented it. I also like to use it to show just how far to the extreme right the gun lobby crowd has gotten since Reagan - the conservative icon and most conservative president since 1932.

    What else do you need to know that has not already been said?

    Go back and look, you skipped over it three times. Purely by accident, I'm sure.

    More evasive nonsense. We have asked you constantly to show the actual language (and since it MENTIONS NOTHING about federal gun control) show us how language devoid of any mention of gun control actually means federal gun control.

    What I know is that your posts constantly avoid answering straight questions and demand others adopt extreme and untenable definitions
