Thread Name: BS: AZ Congresswoman Giffords shot
Subject: RE: BS: AZ Congresswoman Giffords shot
Our current gun laws are insane... No, beyond insane... The would be insane if Congresswoman Giffords was not shot, if Robert Kennedy were no assasinated, if Dwayne Dettman was not shot down by a friend of mine... They are insane all by themselves....

The 2nd amendment in no way gives carte blank permission for anyone to own whatever gun he or she wants... For anyone willing to actually read it as the ****one**** sentence that it is gun ownership is clearly tied to the maintaining of a militia... One person does not make up a militia... Had the amendment been 2 sentences rather than one than the NRA and the gun0nuts would be able to argue their opinions based on the Constitution... Unfortunately for them it is one sentence which, BTW, they never quote in total but quote only part of...

But even if the Founding Fathers had made it two sentences then our gun laws would still be insane...
