The first 10 amendments had ALREADY been totally "incorporated" on December 15, 1791. Which is when the Bill of Rights had been ratified by the requisite number of states.
"Congress of the United States;
"Begun and held at the City of New York, on Wednesday, the 4th of March, 1789.
"The conventions of a number of the states having, at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added; and as extending the ground of public confidence in the government will best insure the beneficent ends of its institution;--
"Resolved, by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, two thirds of both houses concurring, that the following articles be proposed to the legislatures of the several states, as amendments to the Constitution of the United States, all or any of which articles, when ratified by three fourths of the said legislatures, to be valid, to all intents and purposes, as part of the said Constitution, namely,--..."
"Art. IV.[Later abridged to II.- Ed. by EDQ](The following breakdown of Amendment II by clauses is not contained in the original document - Ed. by EDQ).
"Declaratory" clause:
"A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state,
Restrictive
the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
Article. IV.
Section. 1.
Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State. And the Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts, Records and Proceedings shall be proved, and the Effect thereof.
Section. 2.
The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States.
Article VI - This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.--U.S. Constituion
"The Senators and Representatives, and the members of the several State legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and the several States, shall be bound by oath or affirmation to support this Constitution.''It has been asked why it was thought necessary, that the State magistracy should be bound to support the federal Constitution, and unnecessary that a like oath should be imposed on the officers of the United States, in favor of the State constitutions. Several reasons might be assigned for the distinction. I content myself with one, which is obvious and conclusive. The members of the federal government will have no agency in carrying the State constitutions into effect. The members and officers of the State governments, on the contrary, will have an essential agency in giving effect to the federal Constitution."
- James Madison, Federalist No. 44, New York Packet, Friday, January 25, 1788.
Take a hike.
Take a hike back to US History and US Government Classes so you have an understanding how the US Constitution works and has been amemdment since the inception of the Original US Constitution.

They used theirs to eat.

It took them about a minute to load one shot.

When they shot: they were looking at dinner.

One shot. When they needed it.

They were used to keep "criminals" at bay.

Sure they can and they have and they continue to prevent felons from getting firearms.

Millions.

Felons don't flock to gun shows in states where ALL gun sales require background checks.

They do in states where the NRA still insists people like you should be able to sell firearms to complete total strangers.

Right... police evidence lockers...

So in Georgia there are no restrictions on stranger gun sales, here's a thought: require all gun sales to be recorded and all "police" guns be destroyed after they are no longer required as evidence.

Whose going to destroy them. Many have been stolen and no one knew who did it. As far as stranger gun sales go, oh yeah, somebody wanting to make a living on selling guns to anybody on the streets and a restriction for that would be a joke. Low lifes make livings on obtaining and selling weapons to anyone that will buy them. Yeah so try restricting that.

Putting aside you have posted no proof that theft of guns from police evidence lockers is a problem, all evidence- outside some hick police operation we see on TV and movies- is recorded and access to them strictly controlled.

I suggest that firearms be destroyed- as drugs seized is destroyed.

I say: YOU need to be restricted from selling guns to strangers.

I don't care if you sell one, or sell fifty.

And I say if you sell more than one gun a month a year: you are running a business.

Low-lifes are the ones who think they can control the actions of criminals by restricting the actions of the law-abiding.

I didn't say it was an on going problem. I just said it had happened in the past. Don't put words in my mouth. I'm law enforcements biggest fan. I just stated there are bad apples in every basket. It happens sometimes. It's just one of life's little facts.

YOU were whining about guns leaving evidence lockers.

YOU brought it up.

And now you are running away from it.

And YOU don't seem to have a problem selling weapons to complete strangers.

you are still having problems explaining why the southern hillbilly states with the most guns and least gun controls have the highest rates of crime and violence. Perhaps it has to do with the facts you are so full of $-hit....
Because there is a lot more to it than mere gun posession dipshit. Poverty for example. Still waiting for you to explain why even though CA has some of the most strigent gun restrictions in the country, it also has the highest total number of MURDERS with firearms.....by FAR.

The recently released FBI's crime statistics for 2012, once again show the American South dominating the list of states with the highest per capita homicide rates. Louisiana led the nation with a murder rate of 10.8 homicides per 100,000 population.
Louisiana's Southern neighbor, Mississippi was second with a homicide rate of 7.4 per 100,000. Alabama (7.1), Michigan (7.0) and South Carolina (6.9) rounded out the top five most murderous U.S. states in 2012. Missouri (6.5), Tennessee (6.0), Georgia and Arkansas also ranked in the top ten states, with Georgia and Arkansas tying for 10th at 5.9 murders per 100,000.
Top Five Total Firearm Murders (same source):
1. CA - 1,304
2. TX - 745
3. MI - 536
4. PA - 522
5. IL - 439

And these are actually murder numbers. Not rates.

Funny how when racist bigots like yourself insist blacks are responsible for violence in the USA you don't consider poverty, eh, dipsh!t?

PS: Don't be stupid... or try not to be so stupid. There is a direct link between number of guns and the amount of gun violence.

You don't know what MOOT means.

And I remind you every m/f c/s time you whine about it: I don't care if you have EVER sold a gun, if you insist that you should be allowed to sell to strangers, you stupid m/f c/s d/l lying MO-ron, then - and here is the key: you insist that you should be allowed to sell to fellow felons, wife beaters, and mental midgets.

So you are suggesting that a population of 38 million people has more fatalities than a state with less than a million people?

Let's put our top scientists on it and see if you can figure out why!!!
