The U.S. Constitution is timeless, not to be changed by isolated current events.
However, a ban on military-style weapons may be appropriate, provided that it does not ban commonly used hunting rifles. The legislation should be very specific, with no latitude for bureaucrats to define the weapons.
The U.S. Constitution is a living breathing document subject to revision. Remember, slavery and racial discrimination were once constitutional.

The challenge for the antigun-control side was put well by Mr. Scarborough, who said Monday that he had changed his view of the gun debate as a question of individual rights versus government control, and now sees it as an issue of public safety. There are no rights granted by the Constitution that are so absolute that they erase concerns about public safety and welfare.

There is reason, this time around, to hope that both parties can shake off the N.R.A. Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York pointed out on Sunday that the lobby had failed to defeat Mr. Obama this year. And Representative John Yarmuth, a moderate Democrat from Kentucky, said:“The National Rifle Association has spent untold millions of dollars instilling fear in our citizens and our politicians. I believe it is more rational to fear guns far more than the illusory political power of the N.R.A.”

In fact, poll after poll has shown that N.R.A. members themselves are not opposed to measures like criminal background checks on gun sellers and gun buyers.

so cops need guns because of criminals?

and it seems the gun lobby thinks criminals need guns because of cops? for once i'm at a loss. can one of you criminal lovers help me out?

Worthless gun control laws
If all those idiotic gun control laws passed by silly liberals really worked, then we could sleep at night with the doors unlocked and we could walk down the street witout worry. But crinimals don't abide by any kind of laws, so gun control is a stupid idea put forth by liberal idiots and supported by idiot journalists—Guest Spurwing Plover
The majority of home burglaries involve firearms being stolen. That's how criminals obtain most of their guns. If guns weren't in the home they could not be stolen and end up on the street in the hands of criminals. And most "legal gun owners" killed in home invasions are killed with their own gun. Don't you get it? We've got to make these guns unavailable. A total gun ban is the ONLY solution.

How the NRA Defeats National Tragedies

First it scares people into thinking the government is coming for their guns. Then it quietly asks the public to pray for the victims of the next rampage.

What the hell is an "assault weapon"? I know a good deal about guns, but "assault weapon" means nothing. To a liberal, it means "a scary looking gun". Which is why the "assault weapon" ban that expired years ago is not around-- it couldn't be enforced because there is no definition for "assault weapon".
But that's the Liberal Way. Pass laws that make people feel better and less afraid, even if they are pointless. Like having every airline passenger take off his shoes at the airport.
Bought some Sudafed over the weekend, my wife has a cold. Since liberal kids are cooking so much meth these days, a customer can't buy Sudafed without going to the pharmacy and having their driver's license scanned. The last thing you have to do before they give you the decongestant is sign a statement that says "I promise ONLY to use this product to stop my sniffles".
Like if I WAS going to cook meth with it I wouldn't sign that form.
Ah, liberal influence is everywhere.
So you're telling us you don't really know that much about guns:

(b) DEFINITION OF SEMIAUTOMATIC ASSAULT WEAPON.—Section
921(a) of title 18, United States Code, is amended by adding at
the end the following new paragraph:
‘‘(30) The term ‘semiautomatic assault weapon’ means—

‘‘(i) Norinco, Mitchell, and Poly Technologies Avtomat
Kalashnikovs (all models);
‘‘(ii) Action Arms Israeli Military Industries UZI and
Galil;
‘‘(iii) Beretta Ar70 (SC–70);
‘‘(iv) Colt AR–15;
‘‘(v) Fabrique National FN/FAL, FN/LAR, and FNC;H. R. 3355—203
‘‘(vi) SWD M–10, M–11, M–11/9, and M–12;
‘‘(vii) Steyr AUG;
‘‘(viii) INTRATEC TEC–9, TEC–DC9 and TEC–22; and
‘‘(ix) revolving cylinder shotguns, such as (or similar
to) the Street Sweeper and Striker 12;
‘‘(B) a semiautomatic rifle that has an ability to accept

‘‘(i) an ammunition magazine that attaches to the pistol
outside of the pistol grip;
‘‘(ii) a threaded barrel capable of accepting a barrel
extender, flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer;
‘‘(iii) a shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely encircles, the barrel and that permits the shooter
to hold the firearm with the nontrigger hand without being
burned;
‘‘(iv) a manufactured weight of 50 ounces or more when
the pistol is unloaded; and

You license is scanned into a database simply to see of you are buying large quantities of Sudafed. The disclaimer you sign is a legal procedure to protect the retailer from litigation.

Licensed gun dealers nationwide “lost” an average of at least 56 firearms every day over the last three years, according to a Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence analysis of new data released last week by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) at a gun industry trade show. From 2008 to 2010, at least 62,134 firearms left gun dealers’ inventory without a record of being legally sold.

The tragic elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut is a symptom of the general moral decline of the United States, according to James Dobson, the founder of the conservative Christian group Focus on the Family.
On his radio program Monday morning, Dobson said the country was facing judgment after turning its back on God.
“I mean millions of people have decided that God doesn’t exist, or he’s irrelevant to me and we have killed fifty-four million babies and the institution of marriage is right on the verge of a complete redefinition,” the influential conservative explained.“Believe me, that is going to have consequences too.”
Raw Story ( http://s.tt/1xdRw )
It seems I'm not the only one who believes society's callousness toward human life and the acceptance of irresponsible behavior as a result has its consequences.

The culture of immorality, violence and complancency we created is also inundating our children through the medium of movies, television and video games resulting in an emotional vacuum among the younger generation.

I'm not sure what we expected would happen.

It's a simple and obvious connection. Garbage in, garbage out.
