No right is absolute
And as far as the second Ammendment early in our history we had a rebellion put down by the Army, under the direct command of the CiC. I think one George Washington had a clue about that, maybe as a founder, he still needed the NRA and Scalia to tell him what he meant.
We already have limits on speech, famously not being able to scream fire in a crowded theater. There are others, such as libel and defamation, but suggest reasonable laws, such as closing the gun show loop sends fans of the second into fits.
Part of the reason is that things reasonable people agree upon, such as background checks, are transformed into fear campaigns of they will take my guns. These are fear campaigns, period.
We average 20 mass shootings a year, per the Brady campaign, and major incidents are happening more and more often.
I will repeat this, no right is absolute, yet none is comming to grab your guns. The NRA is no longer rational, and we need some rational limits...as in background checks that will keep guns from mentally insane, and people who served time in prison.
We also need access to mental health care... And we will need to sooner or later reconsider this policy
But we have 34 people murdered a day, and 40% of all sales are not screened in a background check.
Oh and we own guns... But I am in favor of background checks for all who buy a fire arm.
I expect this to go nowhere, so let the killing continue, since the 2nd Ammendment, I am told, is absolute....(Nadin)
A few Gungeoneers vs. the rest of Dummydom.This will continue for a week or so than they'll get back to the daily routine of Bush bashing, Palin Derangement Syndrome, playing Kick The Romney, Capitalism is so unfair, etc.
