A Wolf poll, is that the three of your best liberal socialist pals? Your right on one thing, we will let the voter decide. It will be nice for the conservatives to have both the House and the Senate.

There was a case cited on Yahoo news last week, you seem very intellectual, so I am sure you don't need me to do your research.
Why would the Second Amendment be antiquated? Do you also feel the First Amendment or others are antiquated? Interesting, do you think the entire Constitution should be re-written to our liking?
I see the game youíre playing. You offer a backhanded compliment so that I would feel compel to do my own investigating. Let me try.

Since you have a far superior knowledge of the case, wouldnít it be faster and easier if you gave me the link(s)??

The second Amendments states:
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."

In the late 1700s the states were somewhat leery of the federal government usurping the states militias with a standing federal army, so having armed citizens was in keeping with the times. Today, our well regulated militia comes in the form of the National Guard. Itís just archaic.

Iím very fond of the Constitution and its amendments. The Bill of Rights (except #2) great stuff, the 19th and 21st are nice too. The Constitution doesnít have to be rewritten. Just like the 21st amendment repealing the 18th, an amendment could be added that negates another. Before you call me a communist/socialist/ fascist/liberal, just because I donít care for #2 does not mean I want it eradicated from the Constitution. I am one person with an opinion. That I would like to see better control over the selling of guns over the internet or gun shows and through background checks, you betcha.

Lawrence Wolf, "Or else you could wait until the voters decide, that is, if you believe election results." I guess that you're right.'Gun Control Does Not Work' can live in denial of what the polls are telling him about how the majority of Americans want gun safety laws--just like Mitt Romney's team denied the independent polls that Obama/Biden's team was gaining significant support from autoworkers in Ohio, Michigan,Indiana, for his successful GM bail-out, Middle Western states support for his populist Osawatomi, Kansas speech , women, and ,of course , the 47%ers who did not agree with 1%er Romney's insult that they are the moochers and deadbeats unfairly burdening the Government.

It isnít anything of the kind. According to the article:
It ďwould require criminal and mental health background checks for gun buyers at shows and online.Ē
How does this bring about the collapse of the United States? This is a rhetorical question of which I know the answer------It doesnít.
You have to pass a background check when you buy online now, unless you meet the seller in person somewhere. It is already illegal to ship a firearm to anyone other than a Federally Licensed Dealer, and when you pick up the gun, he is required to do the background check.
See, this is part of the propaganda, everyone knows how big the Internet is, so if they are lied to and told it is a loophole, they are against it.

90% of the American people want background checks. Pass stronger gun safety laws and make Gun Violence in America the U S gun manufacturer businesses' Biggest problem . Place a large tax on all assault weapons and ammunition--the revenue will go into a fund to help the victims of gun violence and their family survivors. Then; you'll see how fast the American gun and ammo industry and its N.R.A. lackeys lobbying in Congress act with the American people.
While were are in a taxing mood, why not tax abortions.

"According to a new Morning Joe/Marist poll, Americans overwhelmingly favor the Democratic approach to managing the economy and toughening gun laws." ... The N.R.A. strategy to 'wait out the furor over Sandy Hook until it dies down' has failed. There continues to be strong American majority support for some kind of gun safety legislation that includes tighter background checks . "The poll also found that Americans back stronger gun safety regulations. Although some pundits have speculated that the voters are losing interest in the issue as the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting recedes further from the headlines, the Morning Joe/Marist poll finds that support for new regulations is almost unchanged from Maristís previous polls.

Legislation that would require background checks for private gun sales and gun shows is supported by 87 percent, while just 12 percent oppose it. Additionally, 59 percent support legislation that would ban the sale of assault weapons, with 37 percent opposing it.

Overall, 60 percent believe that gun laws should be more strict, while 33 percent say they should be kept as they are now, and 5 percent say they should be made more lenient" http://www.nationalmemo.com/poll-americans-ba...

These polls only survey heavy demorat areas to get the desired results. The polls are as useful as your posts. I just saw a poll last week, it might have been a Fox poll, that said 96% do not want any further firearms restrictions.

I'm sorry,but I don't recall anyone asking ME,in the lib inspired polls you cite,what I thought. On THAT note I distrust ANY poll in which I am not included. It makes me feel MY opinion doesn't count. And taking a lesson from the libs I believe MY opinion is the ONLY one that counts.

Gun Control Does Not Work, You contradict your own arguments . "I just saw a poll last week, it might have been a Fox poll, that said 96% do not want any further firearms restrictions." You and okimar must be two who were not included in the Fox poll, since you've earlier argued that "Current firearms laws are not enforced...'and they should be to prevent 'the criminally insane and crooks from getting their hands on guns through illegal gun sales and theft' to protect law abiding gun owners- " and you further argued that Government should do more to carry out those existing gun control laws. So, both of you are in the 87% who approve of gun control; aren't you?--- getting tough with illegal gun sellers and regulating the wealthy , profitable U S gun manufacturing business will protect the interests of legal gun owners .

Party first, country last: http://bit.ly/103dp75 "This is quite an indictment, especially coming from one of the "good guys" in the gun safety debate:

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) revealed that some members of his party opposed expanding background checks for gun sales recently because they didn't want to "be seen helping the president."

Two weeks ago, only three Republican senators [aside from Toomey] voted for the bipartisan background checks amendment sponsored by Toomey and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), despite overwhelming popular support for such a measure."

I'm sorry. It sounds like you prefer LIBERALISM first and country last. It don't go that way. Liberalism has done its best to drag this Nation down. So far it seems to be winning. When the Country gets a bellyful you'll see what happens. Grab onto your hat. Its gonna be a rough ride.
