Do you think our 2nd Amendment should be reconsidered?


With the recent tragic shooting on the East Coast, coupled with the shooting at the opening of the newest Batman, as well as the lesser heard of shooting in California on voting day, is it time we reconsider whether or not we should have the right to bear arms?

    I agree with everything you said. I would add that we as a society ought aught to be looking at mental health issues instead of limiting our freedoms and rights.

    In the federalist papers, the founders referred to the 2nd amendment as a check of government power therefore I feel that it was meant for all citizens. It would be a useless for it to apply only to a government controlled militia.

    Nicole, I am sorry for calling you Jeff. I was crying when I wrote teh comment and thought someone else asked the question. Now that I've made a fool of myself, I will go back to my tears.

    Anytime there is a tragedy such as this, those who wish to collect the guns of law abiding citizens stand up and shout. Do you know more innocent people die at the hands of drunk drivers than by guns? Do you want to revisit prohibition?

    Switzerland is a great example, Kasman. That's the main reason Hitler stayed his hand from occupation and the country remained free.

    It's a lot harder to kill someone without a gun than it is with one. Is there any legitimate reason his mother apparently needed to load up on guns like Hans Gruber was coming to town?
