2nd Amendment Discussion

With all the talk about the school shootings, let's take a look at what the 2nd Amendment actually says:

"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."

Couple things to note in there:

1. The specific mention of a militia being the reason for the need to bear arms.
2. The 2nd Amendment never mentions the word gun at all.

So, what exactly is the definition of "arms"?

In 1755 Dr. Johnson’s Dictionary of the English Language was first published. It defined “arms” as “weapons of offence, or armour of defence.”

Weapons of offence would seem to include pretty much anything and everything, from knives to nuclear weapons. The US has already seen fit to ban some weapons of offence so the 2nd Amendment clearly has not been interpreted strictly as meaning that the US cannot ban all "arms". Therefore, the 2nd Amendment does not guarantee citizens the right to own whatever weapons they choose.

So it then becomes a question of which weapons should be banned, which should be strictly regulated, and which should be lightly regulated or not at all. Like anything else, we should weigh an individual's right with society's right. When looked at in that manner, it becomes very difficult to justify why fully automatic or semi automatic rifles should be allowed. What purpose do they serve an individual? And why would that purpose outweigh the extreme damage those weapons have cased society??

Patrick thinks the Chamber of Commerce is the worst organization, and he may be correct, but the NRA is not far behind.

Never give up your guns. Ignore all gun laws passed by any Democrat. They ignore immigration laws, we ignore their gun laws.

Banning modern semi-auto firearms will NOT stop the killing. Instead guns are either a) smuggled in, b) illegally made, c) stolen from law enforcement and military. Mexico is prime example of a and c. Australia and UK are a and b. Anyone can make handguns and simple sub machine guns from online plans. No special skill or parts required. Look up Luty guns and expedient firearms.

Opinion: Jack Wilson is exactly the type of person you want around with a gun because he's a firearms instructor. But we know nothing about the at least six other parishioners who also appeared to draw their handguns. And that's terrifying. https://t.co/od0vfGftjU

The last time someone asked about my thoughts on gun control I simply recommended using both hands for better control. Can't really argue with that!

Fucking idiot who wrote the article should be waterboarded as a minimum. First, Kinnunen was let off a few times before for violent crimes. Why this is not discussed in article? Imprisonment of the shooter would have saved several lives, incl his own. Second, we do know that six other parishioners drawing guns have undergone training required by state of Texas.

Ha, it's even more ridiculous than that: in order to make AR-15 into "non-assault-rifle" configuration all you need to do is to remove the flash hider, replace rear pistol grip with a slightly more raked one and pin the collapsible stock in the extended position. Done.

In Virginia, we had two mass shooting in the last few years, 32 killed at VA Tech and 12 killed at a Virginia Beach city building. Both were done with pistols by minority males.

Overwhelmingly, gun deaths in VA are from pistols and shot guns, with 2/3 of those deaths being suicides. Also, the vast majority of gun homicides is black-on-black using handguns. Homicides by rifles of all types is only 4%.

So what does the newly majority Dems in Va do? Push a ban on "assault weapons." Gov Blackface even came out and said he did not want gun control legislation to deal too harshly with hand gun violence, as that would have a "disparate impact on people of color."

This goes beyond protecting your life, your family, and property against an Antifa style mob.

Use the Roof Koreans in the Los Angeles Riots of 1992 as an example of the 2nd Amendment.

The LA Police pulled out of Koreantown to reinforce their protection of the white liberal neighborhoods of Bel Air, Beverly Hills, etc.

Koreantown was left on its own.

Without being armed, how do you all think Koreantown would have fared ?
