If the Israelites had guns, the Siege of Jerusalem would have never happened.  You have to wonder what history would have looked like if Obama hadn't gone back in time and stolen them.

"Pastor Terry Holcomb started posting videos of himself wandering into local businesses with an AR-15 Bushmaster rifle - the same weapon used to kill 20 children and six adults in the Newtown, Connecticut school shooting. "

Damn, I had thought that one would still be in police lock up. How did he get his hands on that?

Does it mean anything that USP 45 and taurusowner are references to weapons. I suppose tarusowner could be a deep emotional attachment to Fords but I'm pretty sure not. I'm from Nebraska - out in the sandhills we always had a rifle handy for snakes and beasties that endangered the livestock. It was a tool not an item of lust. People who lust after their guns are worrisome. If they need the manhood boost get a fast boat or a Porsche.

A boat or a porsche might mess up their comb overs.

demaL-demaL-yeH: HindiDiscoMonster: Take up arms against the United States British Empire, and you will be on the wrong end of the M-16 or M-24 musket I'll bear in response to treason.

I'll bet that's exactly the same argument the continental congress had too.

Fark. Off.
Can you name your ancestors, both maternal and paternal, who fought on the American side of the Revolution? I can. Did your male ancestors from that time forward all serve, right on down to your uncles, and did you bury your father's remains within spitting distance of the Pentagon? Did all of your brothers and male cousins, and you, personally, stick your right paw up in the air and put your own life on the line for the Constitution of the United States of America? Because all of these things are true of me and mine.
Bearing arms?
Been there.
Done that.
Got the farking fruit salad.

Take your unqualified opinion, engrave it on sheet aluminum, fold it until it's all corners, remembering to make relief cuts to ease folding, and stick it next to your seditious cranio-coccyx.

If you take up arms against the United States, do not doubt that I will take up arms against you.

The Name: Ned Stark: Well that would certainly explain your thought process.

I think the problem is that Americans stop their thought process the minute the constitution is put in front of them.  Yes, it is the supreme legal authority of the country and for the purposes of lawmaking and legal interpretation should not be questioned.

But for the more general purpose of imagining the kind of society we want to be going forward, and thinking about how law should change as society changes, we have every right, indeed the duty, to look at the Constitution with a critical eye and ask ourselves "Does this provision/Amendment/whatever ultimately improve or harm the country?  Is it in line with our priorities and values?"  If the answer is that it harms us and goes against our values, then we have every right, as outlined in the Constitution itself, to change that law.  In light of the magnitude of gun violence in this country, I think the second amendment should receive that kind of scrutiny.

But no, we think that the Constitution was handed down from on high by Jesus Christ himself, and the sky will fall if one of the first ten amendments is changed.  Note that I'm not necessarily arguing that any particular amendment SHOULD be changed.  I'm just saying that it's not heresy or unpatriotic, and indeed can be very worthwhile, to have a conversation about changing them when not interpreting or making actual laws.

I'm pretty happy with the bill of rights. If I were rewriting the constitution its probably the only thing that would stay.

Well maybe no 10. Federalism is dead.

Or 3, because its silly.

The Name: Mercutio74: The Name: You know, when a society's relationship with firearms becomes so obsessive and dysfunctional that it feels it needs to arm and train its children in public schools . . . maybe it's time to apply that amendment process to the second amendment.

Good luck with that.  There are far too many individuals in the US who seem to think that being able to own a gun will protect them from government tyranny or something.

Yeah, I know I'm beating my head against a wall.

Well that would certainly explain your thought process.

Cold_Sassy: demaL-demaL-yeH: ...Concealed carry is cowardice squared.
Stop pissing your pants, pay attention to your surroundings, and don't walk around an armed douchebag.

Stop being so stupid.  Not everybody is the iron man/he-man that you are.  Are you bullet-proof?
If you're a 5'4" 120# woman, I call it leveling the playing field.

I'm not bulletproof. I'm also not in a war zone.
I am aware of my surroundings.
I'm not walking around afraid.
If you're walking around armed absent good reason (see above), you are afraid.

I'm certain that I won't be able to wrap my mind around any "justification" you can proffer for being among unarmed people with lethal force as your first (and, so far only named) resort - you know, in order to "level" the playing field -, so don't bother.

Good for him. The bearing of arms is a Constitutional right. Might open carry upset some people? Yep. Well so did seeing an African American sitting at a table in a diner some time back. But they protested in the open and did things that some people might have thought outrageous. They did it to make it so their rights were recognized. And this citizen is doing the same. And yes, the two issues are similar. Citizens have a number of Rights protected by the Constitution. And one of them is peaceful protesting and demonstrating to ensure the rest of the rights remain recognized. The peaceful bearing of arms as an act of public education and demonstration is his right, and I for one am happy to see him exercise it.
