What about a barbed-wire fence, land mines, several attack dogs and evenly-spaced guard towers? You can probably get everything you need from the Iron Curtain Surplus Store.

Of course once "the bad guys" know that kindergartens are impenetrable you'll eventually have to fortify the post offices, the cinemas, churches, gas stations, pawn shops, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Toys R Us, the Pancake House, Circle K, 7/11, PDQ, Pick 'n Save, Disneyland, Disney World, Knotsberry Farm, the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone National Park, the Statue of Liberty, roadside saltwater taffy shacks, MacDonald's, Burger King, Big Boy, KMART, and every other place that children are known to frequent.

Giving Americans jobs with fair wages and outlawing guns just might be the cheapest way out after all! Yibidy, yibidy, yibidy, that's all folks!

Deer Whisperer, i can't agree that, just because it has been done, that stationing police around the schools is economically feasible.....especially longterm......too many school boards in this country, faced with shrinking tax bases, would be much better served on beefing up the entry points in the schools, along with a speaker system, allowing access after identification....perhap's in unison with a squawk speaker(loud enough to both scare away an intruder and notify the whole school) and alarm direct to local law enforcement....a onetime expense, coupled with periodic maintenance.....
You don't really need an armed guard in a school. You just need to remove the gun free zone idea. There may or may not be someone at a school with a carry permit. People all around you today have a gun on them. It is concealed so you never know who is armed. I carry everyday every place I go. 500,000 other also do in Texas

You also don't want a police state - trust me.

The South African apartheid system was generally considered to have been a police state despite having been nominally a democracy (albeit with the Black African majority population excluded from the democracy).

The Soviet Union and its many satellite states, including North Korea and East Germany were notorious for their extensive and repressive police and intelligence services, with approximately 2.5% of the East German adult population serving (knowingly or unknowingly) as informants for the Stasi.

Nazi Germany, a dictatorship, was, at least initially, brought into being through a nominal democracy, yet exerted repressive controls over its people. Germany was a police state; using the SS/SA to assert control over the population in the 1930s.

In Cuba, 22 journalists who attempted to publicise non-government authorised news remain imprisoned. Arrested in March 2003, the journalists are serving prison terms of up to 27 years. It is also reported that journalists not in prison are frequently threatened with the same fate.

Paris-based Reporters Without Borders ranked North Korea second last out of 168 countries in a test of press freedom. It has been reported that the only TV channel in North Korea predominately eulogises the country's past leaders Kim Jong Il and his father Kim Il Sung. As a result, some locals in Pyongyang have been quoted as stating that their leaders are gods.

The 2nd Amendment is not about hunting.
Stupid argument for gun control: When the founding fathers wrote the 2nd Amendment, they were talking about flintlock rifles.
Rebuttal: Among other things they were talking about was overthrowing an oppressive government. In that day the army had flintlock rifles and the navy used wind powered wooden ships. Now our government has predator drones, nuclear submarines, tanks, attack helicopters, stealth bombers and much more. The people need more than flintlock rifles to keep our government in check. When they wrote the first Amendment, they were talking about screw press block printing, but the first amendment still applies to television and the internet today. So if they want people to give up their modern weapons because the 2nd Amendment was not meant to cover them, then they need to give up all modern means of freedom of the press.
Sheesh- how Crain-like!

OK, please show the part of the 2nd Amendment where it addresses insurrection. I suspect it's in there with the hunting section. Maybe written in invisible ink?

Good morning Reebie. All we need to do is allow concealed carry in schools. Gun free zones are magnets to the crazy mass shooters. If they think someone might be armed they are less likely to go to a school. These people who want to commit suicide don't go to the police station to get shot. They want to take as many with them as possible

please slow down and read what is there , why does a 54 year old woman need several guns , let alone high powered

that is what we need to restrict ....you point out one thing one person one gun ...

Witness all the crying over 2nd Ammendment infringement had we banned shotguns, single shot rifes, handguns...and God help us, clay pidgeons.
2nd Amendment to the Constitution: 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.
No where does it say anything about hunting, nor the type of arms that Americans are allowed to bear. And if Feinstein and the POTUS have their way, many hand guns will be on the banned list.

Here is exactly what you posted.

"what I believe is that we have to have stricter qualifications , a 54 year old doesn't need a lets say high powered rifle , unless she produces a yearly hunting license then we should deny,,

things should make some sense ..

unless you belong to a shooting club [and use the range]
why do you need more than one weapon??? small stuff , but still stuff.."
Your argument states that UNLESS she produces a hunting license, ergo to you the 2nd Amendment is about the right to hunt.

Also, what if She was 53, is it ok then to own that particular firearm. Does she have to give it up on her birthday. And why only she, does a 54 year old man get to have that particular firearm

Look to all the writings of the founding fathers, much the same way the Supreme Court does when they attempt to interpret the Constitution, they speak specifically and repeatedly about being armed to prevent tyranny both from abroad and from within. That was the intent of my post, to show that those who want to interpret the 2nd Amendment to only allow flintlock weapons are being selective in their interpretation, so why not apply it to the 1st Amendment.
