I don't care what you're interested in. Not in the least. You were one of those Rovian predictors of the election, weren't you?
Yeah - I predicted Romney was 1:3 odds-against winning.

I continually back up what I post with attributed sources you are then free to accept or refute.

I am not your RA. You post a claim - you back it up with authoritative sources. Or you are just posting rubbish. As is so far shown to be the case here. Your smarmy references to "the well read" (meaning, one supposes, fellow denizens of your little ideological echo chamber, well-read in HuffPo and Daily KOS) are a joke.

Put up or shut up, kid.

What bs, you never back anything up. It's always the same old bleating sarcasm and bitter loser carping from you. You and all the rest of you oldies are done for, over. You've got nothing to contribute, and you don't have a clue that you're done for.

Please, don't be intentionally obtuse. No one believes, nor is anyone saying, that stricter and more restrictive laws will stop all violence. But it will surely lower the incidence. Otherwise, all you're doing is stooging for the gun manufacturers. More violence in the form of arming more people is stupid.
Besides, people will eventually decide that the carnage is not worth the "fun" of guns. Why should innocent people be required to die so that you can shoot squirrels or little paper targets?
I think you are wrong for the reasons I've already stated. You think I'm obstuse? Fine. I find you to be naive.

How do you equate driving a car, a necessity in America, with a recreational "sport"? Get real, will ya?
So, you picked on the car stat but totally ignored the second hand smoke part that kills way more Americans every year than do guns. Come on. Let's see your outrage and indignation over smoking. You want to ban guns so you should also want to ban smoking since it is by far more dangerous than guns.

I agree that there needs to be some sort of gun laws. For example, a simple trigger lock would have kept the latest whacko from having been able to create the carnage that he did in Newtown. Guns are a constitutionally guaranteed right but just as with all other rights, it comes with responsibility. I own several guns and they all have trigger locks on them. I am the only one who knows the combination to the locks. The perps mother paid the ultimate price for her irresponsibility to secure her guns. Training and securing are things I can support but violating the Constitution by banning, I cannot.

I see. So the claim you made that Americans' 2A rights to keep & bear arms were very restricted - with the NRA's active support - until recently is without any basis. Rubbish, in other words.

Check - glad we could get that cleared up.

Now, let's review here. I responded to your original post by noting your claim was interesting & asking you very simply, politely & respectfully if you could share whatever authoritative basis you had for making it - out of sincere interest.

You went straight to Defcon 5 in your response, which was essentially "f*&ck off, azzwhole." Real mature.

Now you're having a petulant melt-down - revealing yourself as just another angry smart-assed little kid who knows it all, long on smarts and short on wisdom, who hates "oldies." Kick Grandma to the curb.

But that's ok - most of us were there once also. Most of us eventually grew out if it.

In 1619, the Virginia House of Burgesses passed a law making the transfer of guns to Native Americans punishable by death. Other laws across the colonies criminalized selling or giving firearms to slaves, indentured servants, Catholics, vagrants and those who refused to swear a loyalty oath to revolutionary forces. Guns could be confiscated or kept in central locations for the defense of the community. And in the late 1700s and early 1800s, the state and federal governments conducted several arms censuses.(Imagine what the NRA would say if government officials went door to door today asking people how many guns they owned and whether they were functional.)

On the western frontier in the 19th century, to stave off violence, new towns and cities enacted laws to bar carrying guns. In fact, the typical western town had stricter gun laws than many 21st-century states. Today, four states have completely eliminated permits for handgun ownership and carrying.

The Second Amendment wasn't intended to protect the right of Americans to rise up against a tyrannical government.

This canard is repeated with disturbing frequency. The Constitution, in Article I, allows armed citizens in militias to “suppress Insurrections,” not cause them. The Constitution defines treason as “levying War” against the government in Article III, and the states can ask the federal government for assistance “against domestic Violence” under Article IV.

Our system provides peaceful means for citizens to air grievances and change policy, from the ballot box to the jury box to the right to peaceably assemble. If violence against an oppressive government were somehow countenanced in the Second Amendment, then Timothy McVeigh and Lee Harvey Oswald would have been vindicated for their heinous actions. But as constitutional scholar Roscoe Pound noted, a “legal right of the citizen to wage war on the government is something that cannot be admitted” because it would “defeat the whole Bill of Rights”— including the Second Amendment.
