Guess what? Y'all ain't well regulated. Most of you aren't well in the head and you are going to lose this battle. Just put on your big boy pants and accept it. This is a FREE country, not one where you have to carry a gun everywhere you go to feel safe. That is not free. That is imprisonment.
You only have to carry one in heavily democrat liberal areas. Chicongo, Newark, Gary and Detroit as examples.
Once again proving democrats and liberals aren't well in the head and very criminal minded and violent.
Normal Americans will be packing against the wild savages shooting up entire neighborhoods.

Do you understand the definition of "well regulated"?
From your post it appears you are ignorant of the definition .
Nothing is free.
32,000 people die by gun every year in the United States. Why don't you look up the numbers in other countries? Their numbers are mostly in the double digits and a few in the triple digits. No where near the carnage we experience here in the U.S. everyday.

I'm not ignorant of the definition of well regulated. The numbers speak for themselves. It is you who is not only ignorant of the definition but you are oblivious to the destruction that modern day guns inflict on our country. Just wait until it gets worse. People from Europe, Australia etc, who come here as tourists and spend billions every year, they are going to be too afraid to come to the Wild Wild West formerly known as the U.S. and will travel elsewhere. It's already happening. At least they are smarter than us. I wouldn't bring my family here either considering every day I send my children to school, I have to wonder if they are going to be blown to bits by some gun toting freak like you AT SCHOOL.

You and other gun worshippers are pathetic...ignorant, paranoid and pathetic.

There are no normal neighborhoods in the US anymore. I guess you FOXbots don't read the papers. Columbine, Newtown, Tucson.....all mostly WHITE, upper class neighborhoods where mass murders occurred and were pulled off by crazy white men like you.

Your gun will not protect you and the paranoia you have built up in your head, paired with your anger makes you a top candidate NOT TO HAVE OWNERSHIP OF A GUN. So many of you NRA freaks are unstable and even scarier, you're always packing, thus the high murder rate.

Looks like ya just proved that you are a moron......
Australia had a gunmen murder multiple people. They created some of the strictest gun laws in the world as a result of the mass shooting.

Their crime rate has plummeted since.

Sorry, put your head promptly back up your ass.
I know how you gun toting freaks hate to hear facts.

Go to Mexico, btw. Try to bring those guns back across the border. Let me know how that works out for you, zippy.

The following are taken from the Oxford English Dictionary, and bracket in time the writing of the 2nd amendment:

1709: "If a liberal Education has formed in us well-regulated Appetites and worthy Inclinations."

1714: "The practice of all well-regulated courts of justice in the world."

1812: "The equation of time ... is the adjustment of the difference of time as shown by a well-regulated clock and a true sun dial."

1848: "A remissness for which I am sure every well-regulated person will blame the Mayor."

1862: "It appeared to her well-regulated mind, like a clandestine proceeding."

1894: "The newspaper, a never wanting adjunct to every well-regulated American embryo city."

The phrase "well-regulated" was in common use long before 1789, and remained so for a century thereafter. It referred to the property of something being in proper working order. Something that was well-regulated was calibrated correctly, functioning as expected. Establishing government oversight of the people's arms was not only not the intent in using the phrase in the 2nd amendment, it was precisely to render the government powerless to do so that the founders wrote it.

The Constitution was designed to be amended. Guns in the 1700's were not accurate. You had to be a few feet away to shoot and hope to connect with your target.

Now you can buy a gun that shoots from 1,000 yards away and you can also buy a gun that shoots multiple rounds in seconds. If our founding fathers were alive and saw the Newtown tragedy and what this country has become, a war zone, you bet your bippy they would amend the constitution. They never intended guns to be used against one another. They were to fight our enemies since we didn't have a traditional army or police to protect us back then.

The problem with the NRA is that the idiots running it have no common sense. Their only concern is $$$$ and boy have they fooled the masses. They've got gun toters so scared that they are spending their life savings on guns and bullets. The masses of asses are just clueless.

"The bearing of arms is the essential medium through which the individual asserts both his social power and his participation in politics as a responsible moral being..."

-- J.G.
A. Pocock, describing the beliefs of the founders of the U.S

"I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical."

-- Thomas Jefferson, letter to Col. William S. Smith, 1787

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined."

-- Patrick Henry, speech of June 5 1788

"As to the species of exercise, I advise the gun. While this gives [only] moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise, and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun, therefore, be the constant companion to your walks."

-- Thomas Jefferson, writing to his teenaged nephew.

That the said Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United states who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms...

-- Samuel Adams, in "Phila. Independent Gazetteer", August 20, 1789

Millions die from alcohol every year..........

More innocent people die in a few days from alcohol related deaths than innocent people die from guns in a year.......

But lets just look at the USA and murders..........

Yes the USA has a high rate of gun deaths compared to many countries.......

But the USA also has more murders from knives than these same countries.......

USA also has a higher rate of murder from objects like a ball bat......

But moron liberals dont want to consider these facts..........
