quantified into specifically what is okay and not okay?
the same reason an RPG or a bazooka is on the NOT OKAY list. c'mon....the ability to fire massive amounts of ammo, with the ability to kill multiple
people all at once without reloading, is not infringing on your right to bear arms. if you think it is, then you must believe that the 2nd amendment
gives you the right to kill alot of people at once. don't you think this brings into focus your motives as well as your state of mind?
do you want to be associated with the same people as:
2...virgina tech shooter
3...gabby giffords shooter

Your statements have no merit. The 2nd Amend is to protect us from a tyrannical government. You need to know about rights given to us by the
constitution . You are using cases of psychotic episodes to make a case to disarm all Americans. If a person wants to harm another person they will
find a way to do it , by getting rid of gun does not get rid of crazy. I own guns and have nothing in common with these psycos. When all the guns are
gone what will insure your freedoms?
I would not mind a bazooka or an rpg, they would be pretty fun to shoot!
In every instance in your list if there was an armed civilian there the shooter would have possibly killed less people. Did the police help? No cause
they get there tooo late. A government cannot protect you true protection only comes from each individual.
Absolutely. We just need everyone to agree that we have a trannical "government". That includes any military, or others, who have sworn an oath to
uphold and support the Constitution.
I only disagree on one minor point--- rights given to us by the constitution
, We already have unalienable rights given to us by our
Creator.( If you do not have a Creator, then insert another word instead of Creator.)
The Constitution is meant to restrain the "government". They need to be told, in writing, what SOME of our specific rights are. Just in case they
forget. Government was never meant to be ABOVE man. It didn't start that way in the Republic that we were given. What happened?
