    No. But I'm sure I could find many, many people older than you who would disagree with you. Age isn't a negative thing, but it doesn't necessarily make you right either.

    I can tell you now that there is no way you can prove that "When the Constitution was written, one tenth of 1% of the populous were nut cases.
    Today, the numbers are far greater." It is a pointless statement.

    And what does the insanity defense have to do with this issue?

    This, of course is impossible to prove one way or the other as the definition of "insane" is so nublious.(never clearly defined and ever changing over the years)..if I cannot think of a word, I'll just create one on the fly.)

    You do know that "nut cases", as determined by law, are already not legally able to buy/own/use guns, right?
    Do you really think the law is effective??
    Right now, there are far too many conservatives around for effective anti-gun laws.....but not the case in Europe.
    Have you read the stats?

    I can tell you now that there is no way you can prove that "When the Constitution was written, one tenth of 1% of the populous were nut cases.
    Today, the numbers are far greater." It is a pointless statement.How so?
    Do you agree that weapons are dangerous and should be restricted??


    And what does the insanity defense have to do with this issue?
    Little or nothing.But read the article and similart articles, or read between the lines..
    The point is, there are nut-cases walking among us. Nearly every year that goes by, one or more will make his name known..
    Do you doubt this? Or do we just wring our hands and say that nothing can be done and that the first amendment is written on sacred paper.

    No, if it bothers us, we arm ourselves as per the 2nd amendment. It is not a protected right to ensure nutcases or criminals have easy access to weapons, it is protected so people can protect themselves against such people.

    Hey earthworm, go spout that sugar-coated ivory tower stuff in the pacifist thread... nobody here is buying.

    I've been 'reading and learning' for forty-four years. I also spent plenty of time out in the real world. If you want to go show love and tolerance towards a junkie who is trying to rape your wife, be my guest. I'll settle for a hollowpoint thru his brainpan and figure I did society a favor.

    Be a good fellow and go post elsewhere...

    no, or does my idea of the truth hurt?
    The old ways are not working, this includes burying one's head in the sand.

    You wish to go to war against the criminals, I wish to know why we have criminals in the first place.
    Is this wrong?

    I've known lots of criminals. Some of them are insane. Some were never taught right and wrong. Many made a choice to harm others for their own benefit.

    Sorry, but "society is to blame" does not fly around me. Some people are just evil, and you're not going to change that.

    Yes, it does hurt... "painfully naive" is the phrase...
