    Agghh, for all the liberals out there who want to put guns out let me explain something, guns in this country are not for hunting or self deffense (those are secondary reasons) They are for changing government when it oversteps its bounds and becomes destructive of the reasons it was put in place in the first place i.e. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

    thank you for your time.

    The 2nd amendment prohibits this, as applied to the actions of a state by the 14th amendment.

    There has been enough discussions for other posts though. I made my point and no one has refutted it.
    This is an amazingly dishonest statement.

    Well if you want on the broadcast news some one needs a license.

    Imagine, needing to get a license to have an abortion.
    I hope the Dr. has one.


    Imagine, needing a 5-day wait to send a letter to the editor, so that the government can be sure that the letter does not include libel, slander, sedition, 'fighting words', etc.
    I'm sure all letters to the editor are screened.

    And if not...?

    We both know we're talking about the mother, not the doctor, so that wasn;t even a clever dodge...

    Again, not even a clever dodge.

    Fact of the matter is, if these things were in place, you (and all the anti-gun liberals) would be in an uproar about how your rights were being violated.

    No, because by banning weapons, you ensure that the only people who own them are criminals, who don't give a rat's ass about them being illegal.

    Fact is all I mentioned are already in place. Stop with the histrionics and trolling. BTW I do think we have a right to own weapons unlike you though I do not want to see them sold a my local 7-11.

    No, no they are not.
    -Reporters do -not- need licenses to report the news.
    -Women do -not- need licenses to get abortions
    -Letters to the editor are -not- held by the government for 5 days to check them for illegal content.

    So, stop the dishonesty and avoidance...

    Ive wasted enough time in this thread. I may think that everyone is being "dishonest" from what I feel is ignoring information about what rights and the Constitution mean, but I am willing to accept that we believe differently. I am not going to call you guys liers for having your own views.

    and of course I will say that if having a 1 day waiting period on guns doesn't violate the 2nd amendment, then a state is able to impose those waiting periods. I am simply saying that there doesn't need to be a violation of the 10th amendment for a waiting period.
