Thread Name: BS: AZ Congresswoman Giffords shot
Subject: RE: BS: AZ Congresswoman Giffords shot
In re: the comment that the Congresswoman was skilled with a glock. She could have carried it had she chosen to. In this situation, unless she reacted instantly, it probably would not have saved her.

She did not exhibit the the fear and distrust that makes it necessary for many to carry a weapon in public, either openly or concealed. I hope that does not change.

I am not convinced that the current interpretation of gun rights will stand at the Supreme Court level. At some point, the whole of the phrase "well regulated militia" will come to dominate the interpretation of the second amendment.
