The right to bear arms shall not be infringed. That's my stance.

funny how people always forget the first part of the 2nd amendment

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State,


 the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. "


We have a standing army now, so a 'well regulated militia' is no longer needed.




A standing army is unconstitutional. We do not NEED one of those. We do have militias but they were transformed into the National Guard. After that little Civil War incident the Federal Government got scared of its citizens organizing and defending its states constitutional rights.

Allowing anyone right to bare arms is just asking for trouble, just look at colombine and dunblain.
Gun crime is always going to be a problem while guns are easily accesible

Criminals can get guns whether their are laws against them or not. I guess their are no gun crimes in Britian, huh?

Yes there are gun crimes, but there are a hell of a lot less, and the gun crimes tend to be gangs killing each other, not masscre's of children who's only crime was going to school that day


Wasn't their a school shooting in Scotland a few years back? Kind of throws your argument out, huh?

Suggest everyone read Steve Chapkman's new column, "Assault-weapon ban follows a curious logic."

Corrected link. I don't know how yall mess this up.
