It offers a chance to consider the many thoughts and comments offered today…
“blaming this on “evil” is a total cop out.”
“Amend this fucking constitution already!!”
“The Second Amendment was never intended to permit mass slaughter.”
“I find it impossible to fathom the motivations of someone this deranged.”
“ONE jack ass tries to light his shoe and every American has to take their shoes off at airports. Mass gun violence and there’s nothing we can do.”
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear two handguns, a shotgun, an assault rifle, 6,000 rounds of ammunition, black body armor, and a gas mask, shall not be infringed.
The [Reuters/Ipsos poll] survey results suggest that Republicans are convincing voters to reject Obama’s reform even when they like much of what is in it, such as allowing children to stay on their parents’ insurance until age 26. Strong majorities favor most of what is in the law.
Obama is “out of touch?” Exactly how is a multi-millionaire currently building a $12 million house with a car elevator more in touch? And, where does Mitt live? California? Massachusetts? Florida? Utah? the planet Kolob?
“As Adam Winkler, a constitutional-law scholar at U.C.L.A., demonstrates in a remarkably nuanced new book, “Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America,” firearms have been regulated in the United States from the start. Laws banning the carrying of concealed weapons were passed in Kentucky and Louisiana in 1813, and other states soon followed: Indiana (1820), Tennessee and Virginia (1838), Alabama (1839), and Ohio (1859). Similar laws were passed in Texas, Florida, and Oklahoma. As the governor of Texas explained in 1893, the “mission of the concealed deadly weapon is murder. To check it is the duty of every self-respecting, law-abiding man.”“
