Oh how wrong you are. The 9th circuit has recently made a decision reversing some of those infringements. Many more are destined to follow.

".deal with it..nothing you can do but swallow..."

The U.S. leads the developed world in firearm-related murders, and the difference isn't a slight gap more like a chasm. According to United Nations data, the U.S. has 20 times more murders than the developed world average. Our murder rate also dwarfs many developing nations, like Iraq, which has a murder rate less than half ours. More than half of the most deadly mass shootings documented in the past 50 years around the world occurred in the United States, and 73 percent of the killers in the U.S. obtained their weapons legally.

I see. Nice to know since that quote is in the very same summation of the Heller decision by the very same justice and the very same writing you cite.
The one where the SCOTUS clearly states that there are limitations to the 2nd Amendment.

Again.

Some never listen.

And stupid person like you don't understand.

The Amendment says nothing of a well trained militia.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Funny how silent you are when others start it with "The right of the people..."

Actually: lots of people give a rip when they try to understand why it is that 33,000 die from firearms a year and why we have so more compared to all but a handful of third world countries.

Most understand the common element in firearm deaths is a firearm.

Still having trouble with that whole "shall not be infringed" part, huh???
Still having a problem with that "Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose" thing?

If you were concerned with saving lives, why not try to stop the top killers?

Note: the gun related deaths is the line at the bottom of the chart that barely fluctuates.

Once you have fixed everything that kills more than guns do, come back and we can talk.
Until then you are nothing more to me than a mouthpiece for a tyrannical government wanting total control.

Americans are.

They start with people who own guns who shouldn't.

Here's a better idea: once you have stopped someone from killing one single person, you come back and talk to us.

Either that or get a job.

Japan does not have our Constitution or BOR.
Of course you don't care about Japan It blows a whole in your claim that gun filled societies are safer than those which have many gun restrictions.

Someone else made that claim long before I came along.
Though I do believe an armed society is a more polite society.

But thanks for playing.

More people die from;

alcohol: 88,000 deaths attributable to excessive alcohol use each year
http://www.cdc.gov/alcohol/fact-sheets/alcoho...

prescription drugs: 100 people die from drug overdoses every day in the United States. That is over 36,000 per year
http://www.cdc.gov/homeandrecreationalsafety/...

cigarettes: More than 480,000 deaths annually
http://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/data_statistics/fa...

Most of those deaths could be prevented by banning the products. Nobody would have their inalienable rights threatened in the process.

To bad that over 60% of those 33,000 people (roughly 19,500) are SUICIDES and not homicides at the hands of another, huh?

And speaking of suicides.......why aren't you including the 30,000+ SUICIDES per year in Japan when you try to compare our two countries??? Oh that's right. Because Japan's suicides are done mostly without firearms so they don't count, right?

car will kill someone, but in an accident ...cars main purpose is to commute....
And how many firearm ACCIDENTS are there every year, EINSTEIN??? Not nearly as many as automobiles, is there???. And yet no one has to pass a background check in order to buy a car do they? A felon can even buy one. So which is more dangerous???

And if firearms are only design "TO KILL", then every one of mine must be defective. Because in over 35 years of firearm ownership, mine have never killed anyone.

Here's a little free education for you so pay attention. Killing implies intent. Firearms, being inanimate objects, have no intent. The intent is strictly in the mind of the person pulling the trigger. What they are designed for, or their "purpose", is to expel a projectile in a direction determined BY THE USER, with a certain degree of accuracy. Nothing more.......nothing less.
