Very true, no doubt... even more so if I have a gun. No hero fantasy, don't want to hurt anyone, but I think I could if I had to...

look as long as cops have guns we need them. Did you see all of those law enforcement nuts show up on tv. They were all playing swat armed with machine guns. Over six hundred unarmed americans have been gunned down by the cops this year. Perhaps if we shot back, I just dont know.

No, inalienable rights like self protection come from God, not government. The Constitution merely recognizes and secures those rights. It is not the source of them.
Amending the Constitution is a very long, arduous process. There are two methods delineated in Article 5 of the U.S. Constitution.
The first is for 2/3 of both House and Senate to vote in favor of proposing an amendment to the states for ratification. After that, 3/4 of the legislatures of each state must vote in favor of ratification.
The second method is for 2/3 of the legislatures of the states to vote in favor of calling a convention for proposing amendments, and then any such proposed amendments must be ratified by 3/4 of the legislatures of each state.
Since the Constitution was ratified in 1789, there have only been 27 Amendments, and the first 10 of those came at the same time as the Constitution itself was ratified.
The last Amendment was ratified in 1992. The one just prior to that was ratified in 1971.
It's highly unlikely that an Amendment to alter the 2nd Amendment will ever be ratified.

Many people feel exactly as you do and have chosen to arm themselves to protect against crazy people. They've decided that when seconds count and the police are only minutes away, it's better for them to have the means to defend themselves rather than being like a lamb led to the slaughter.
I don't know how long it would take to change the Constitution, however I don't claim to be an expert on this type of shit. One thing that I think though is there has already been a Terrorism Act established in the United States to fight Terorism, and I firmly believe that School Shootings, Mass Shootings, Theator Shootings and any other type of shooting is an act of "Domestic" Terorism, that is being conducted by "American Terroists" In my belief of this it would appear to me that the President could establish a state of Emergency and start disarming Republicans (Excuse me I mean People) immediately. If people refuse to give up their gun then they should be considered a terroist and enemy and the proper action should be taken to disarm the enemy.

Annual U.S. gun deaths are similar to annual vehicle deaths, around 34,000 each, per the CDC, and we have a testing process to prove you are capable of driving. Even laws against operating vehicles under the influence. Common sense control measures. Not a ban on cars or alcohol, though the latter was attempted with little result other than aiding in the growth of criminal empires. The nightmare in Newton is a mental health issue, not a gun control issue. As a hammer may build, it may destroy, neither of its own free will. Total ban on new firearm sales? Okay... Care to guess how many are out there? Is the suggestion that the government disarm us? Have you read any history? In China, days before Newton, an attack was carried out in a grade school by a man with a knife. I guess the Chinese are not responsible enough to be allowed sharp objects.
I fail to see how people can compare Gun Deaths to Vehicle Deaths, First of all vehicle accidents are just that an "Accident" someone makes a mistake and as a result a tragedy takes place and people are killed. I don't know anyone that wakes up in the morning and thinks to himself or herself I think I will go out today and make a mistake and kill someone and myself in a vehicle accident. I fail to see the comparison to gun deaths, because although some gun deaths are indeed an accident, most of the time they are not. Mass shooting take place because some asshole woke up pissed off at the world and decided that he was going out and shoot twenty innocent children, because after all he has the right to bear arms. If concealed weapons save lives as most people think than hows come we aien't never heard of someone somewhere shooting a bad guy and saving lives because he had his or her pop gun in their pocket ready and capable of use.

Is it a coincidence that the most vocal and strident gun nuts have the smallest and most pathetic penises?

How is this even close to a "valid argument" for total gun control? That's like saying because certain idiots use Advil cold and sinus to make meth then no one should be able to buy it. Government cannot and should not be allowed to control every area of our lives. Especially those areas that are protected by our constitutional rights. Instead of relying on government to do the work and change everything, what do you do? What have you done to make a difference? Do you petition your school board meetings? Do you right letters to our congressmen? Or are you yet another citizen who rests under the American flag but then whines about what "they" should do to change things? Just curious

Okay, so you anti-gun mentality types think that every law-abiding citizen who owns guns should simply allow the Federal Government to come in and confiscate them all? Why should the citizens of the USA relinquish all of their power to the State? Do you liberals really believe that the government has our best interests at heart, or that they even care about The People? The government is run by criminals and crooks, and this is well known. If you really believe that the citizens should give up all of their power to the State, then you are a "Statist." That is not a good thing!

That's precisely what liberals think. While the founders of our country knew very well the danger of government power, today's liberals are clueless.

They are willing to loose the chains of the Constitution that bind the powers of government, never once realizing that soon they will be nothing but peasants in the land being crushed by tyranny.

I personally believe that way back when our Chuckle headed Forefathers wrote the Constitution of the United States times were different and it was a completely different world. Things were a lot harder and rougher and life was a different beast altogether. Times have changed and the world is no longer the way it used to be, I personally believe that there is more crime these days and people use firearms for purposes that they did not use them for years and years ago. For instance I doubt very little that gun nuts were walking into schools killing innocent children, walking into public places killing numerous innocent people, carrying assault weapons gunning down every person in sight. I personally believe that if our Chuckleheaded Forefathers could see into the future at all of the things that gun nuts are doing to kill innocent people and children they would haven't been so free to add the second amendtment. The only answer is to correct the "mistakes" of our forefathers and install total and complete gun control.

I see. Well thanks for exposing yourself as a prime specimen of government school and liberal media brainwashing.

That may be, but the U.S. Constitution remains the supereme law of the land, and the powers of government are bound thereby.

That is not going to happen in the United States. Why don't you move to another country where government has successfully disarmed the populace, like China or North Korea?

It's amazing to me that one can watch TV and daily see disarmed people by the tens of thousands being slaughtered by their government in places like Libya, Syria and Yemen, yet we think a disarmed populace is necessary.

I don't know whether that's ignorance or stupidity. Perhaps it's both.

If you believe that our Government is going to start slaughtering the populace in the United States, you are mentally ill and don't need a gun anyway. If our country was going to do that they would have started years ago and we wouldn't have as many criminals and murderers in the United States Today. Hell we can't even enforce the death penalty in the United States for convicted Murderers because of all the Government red tape.

We really need a BAN ON ANTI SECOND AMENDMENT DEMOCRATS. Informed voters are well aware of Obama's anti Second Amendment voting record when he was an Illinios Senator. That is why INFORMED VOTERS didn't vote for Obama. Obama was going to use operation Fast and Furious, Obama's gun running to the Mexican drug cartels as a con game to fool the American public that he must enact major gun CONtrol, because as Obama and other anti second amendment ilk, like Hillary were running around lying that 90% of the guns going into Mexico were from Americans, when the truth was that Obama has running guns to Mexico. Fast and Furious blew up in his face when two US border agents were killed with Obama's guns. Then Obama got lucky and the shooting in CT happened. Obama did not waste any time EXPLOITING the shooting for further his unAmerican hatred of the Second Amendment, using CT as an excuse for more gun CONtrol. So you see the real definition of gun control is: an anti Second Amendment Democrat CON game that pretends to prevent crime while infringing upon the Constitutional rights of law abiding Americans. When Obama claims he has no intention of taking our guns or infringing upon our rights, you know he's lying. Obama has never told the truth about ANYTHING and his anti Second Amendment voting record in Illinois shows what he's really made of.

Remember Ruby Ridge? Remember Waco? If you don't think government tyranny is a very real and present danger, you're an idiot.

What I believe is that the "Gun Nuts" at Ruby Ridge, and Waco wanted a fight with the government and got what they wanted.
