How many are open to this... Yea, could have been better detailed but I think it get the point across. I sure it would get refined anyway if it is taken seriously.

How many would agree with this? I attempted to look at both point of views... 150 votes and its searchable by the public.

I guess we need to start a petition to enforce the original understanding of the Second Amendment. I would propose that all citizens carry at all times with no permit or registration. I would also propose the distribution of military grade weapons to all citizens desiring them. The purpose of the second amendment is to allow us to defend ourselves from the government.

RE The militia argument: When the Constitution was written the militia was all able bodied adult men.

I say create a petition to MAKE THE CONSTITUTION THE LAW AGAIN!

We have strayed too far...

If able-bodied were able to carry weapons we would have dead BAD GUYS instead of dead innocents...

The gun doesnt shoot itself people. what happened is a horrific tragedy but the person to blame is the monster that pulled the trigger. Do you know that Conneticut has very strict gun laws and this still happened? The more you take guns away from honorable ablebodied right in the head humans you give the bad guys more leverage to do more harm because he knows he most likely wont be shot back. WTF is wrong with some of you?
In all honesty what we need is to stop the apathy that we all feel as we go through our daily lives. If you see someone who needs help freaking help them!!!!!!! stop passing them bye without a care in the world. This guy obviously was sick and it probably didn't start this morning, it's probably been coming on slowly for years. I'm tired of selfish humans taking the lives of others because they are misserable and angry but i'm just as tired of people watching in the sidelines as their friends and family members spiral out of control. Start caring about each other, teach your children proper gun safety, teach your children that life is precious and wonderful.
This is a sad day for all humankind, start making a difference by being a better human.

I just watched the Prez speaking on NBC news. He says, "We are going to have to come together to take meaningfull action" (he referenced all the recent public shootings) "regardless of politics". He looked solemn and stern (like Bush after 9-11) and I am very much wondering what his "meaningfull action" will be!

As a Canadian, this issue really doesn't affect me, but I would like to share my thoughts.

The second amendment isn't the problem, at least that's how I see it. How many tens of millions of Americans have guns? Compare that to how many Americans go on shooting sprees... We're talking about a tiny fraction of a percent! Social change is what's needed. Better care and support for people with mental illness would be a good start. Caring for our neighbors and strangers alike, is another good place to start. Spending more quality time with our kids, another good place. The way I see it is that society doesn't allow for these things. The American dream for one, "Look out for #1..." is a problem. Too many people care WAY too much about themselves to ever give a stranger an smidgen of respect. Most people (Just my opinion here) would rather trample a stranger to get what's theirs as opposed to sharing what they have with said stranger.

But the moment you say "Share" people come back with, "Communist." So in all honesty, I don't think we can win. Not without drastic social reform...

And just how exactly does one get rid of guns?


Use Government thugs using guns to take the guns away?

That is rich.

The big mistake is that far too many people have no clue what the second is and what it means if the second has no meaning the entire constitution has no meaning.

Nope. Nothing wrong with "sharing" at all. However, when we start talking about confiscation of wealth to be squandered and at best a tiny percentage of those confiscated funds actually making it to deserving people. That is a totally different topic. Most of what is not wasted by the bureaucracy goes to the undeserving imo.

None whatsoever.

My point is... they did it and it showed them that they could do it! Like most people on this site, great at giving opinions and thought on a subject...not so great as coming up with a plan to put in motion.

All Talk No Action... or more said then done...

The constitution is fair, that's why it was written. I think we should start abiding, dude.
