This is my first thread and it is bound to be a controversial one.
I believe that owning a gun should be earned. Earned in such a way as to show you are mature enough to own one. There are far, far to many immature and reckless people who should not own one yet still do. And it is getting worse, with the new "Smart Rifle" out that is so easy a 12 year old girl can hit a 3 inch disc at 500 yards
I think restrictions on people are in place. A crazy person should have no place around guns, yet it keeps happening Something needs to change. But it likely never will, the NRA and gun nuts wont budge, they bully people into making decisions and it needs to stop.
But this was before America had an actual army. It is irrelevant today.
It doesn't cover "Steve's" (generic name) Right to own AR-15's with 100 round magazines and 3 shotguns and 12 handguns (Basically an excess of guns) as Steve would have you believe.
It gives Steve the right to grab a musket and defend "Kentucky" (random state) from the enemy
I always think that the idea of the constitution was correct in it's day but now, to throw the government you'd need some pretty exotic hardware and software, muskets just wouldn't cut it. Bottom line....If Americans are using the constitution as an argument to own firearms to oust a malformed government, a serious amendment is in order!
Umm i am a gun owner , and i live in CA ,i don't know about other states but CA is one of the hardest states to get a gun..
Firstly Any domestic charges or violent charges .. Be it felonious or misdemeanor .
YOUR NOT GETTING A GUN.
also if you have ANY psychological issues YOUR NOT GETTING A GUN ..
It's not about restricting guns , a psycho is going to kill regardless , many options kife,gun,bomb, Poison.. Ect ect ..
But guess what i would feel safer knowing that teacher or store owner ,or my neighbor was packing heat!
ETA: any" Responsible " person could SNAP
At any time ... Just saying.
On the contrary we need lessor restriction !

Why not just end the agreement now once and for all and put it to congress to change the constitution.
If the gun control supporters don't get the 2/3 vote needed and congress shoot a change to the 2nd amendment down which they likely will then that's its it the 2nd there to stay. No point debating any further.
You get a legal and pretty much firm answer then.
Alot of retards on here. I am saying stop Mentally ill people from having guns yet all anyone can see is a gungrab (which is NOT my point)
"You shall not take my guns" i agree with you, i want unstable people to not have guns
People suffering from depression and things like that, ill let the pro's decide that. But not people who fail to read stuff online then rant about gun grabs, missing the point
I give up. I'll just let you continue to gun down kids at school. That is the problem with America, no one wants to change, you all think it's perfect. Let me tell you something, having people gun down kids at school is not perfect and needs to change yet no one will. "were number one" cut the crap and open your eyes
This whole world is a mess, gotta have a goddamn vest on your chest and a Glock just to go watch Batman. But why? because no one will change

And that is why it is a out of date law. "ANYONE can have a gun, any gun. Crazy people, terrorists all of them." you can't stop them, that is illegal. If you can't infringe on this then why aren't all you guys arguing that guys like James Eagan Holmes, the aurora guy, should be able to buy an AK-47. STOP INFRINGING PEOPLE LIKE JAMES EAGAN HOLMES RIGHTS TO OWN ANY GUN HE WANTS. Why don't you say that, that infringes on your precious rights, but it is not convenient
