So then we must repeal all speed limits and laws against robbery and murder and rape etc, etc, etc, etc, because they're not being enforced 100% of the time right now.
Stupidity becomes you pookie. If you look at Chicago, those laws have already been repealed. Welcome to liberal land.

Nope, that pre-existing right was for the same reason; to be able to raise an army from the populace without having to provide them with a gun and the training to be able to use it.
Now that we have standing armies, there is not need for individuals to be required to own guns.
Because history for you starts somewhere around the year you were born and somehow all the flaws in humanity that have caused governments in the past and present to terrorize and subjugate their own citizens and maybe their neighbors too could never, ever repeat itself. Not here in America, right Mr. Sheeple? Bahhhh! Get back to grazing.

First, you tell us how you are going to remove every gun in the country. This includes the ones that have never been registered and there are no longer any sales records for because they are too old. And you would also have to remoce any ability to manufacture new ones. So tell us, o' lieberal sychophant, how are you going to put the toothpaste back in the tube???
With jack booted thugs is how. Thats the way tyrants always do it. They are culling law enforcement and the military right now of any constitutional loving patriot or christian that may choose to defend it. Don't you know that you have been deemed a danger being a vet, since you may love the country and constitution more then you love democrats? Why else would they be asked by Homeland Security if they would fire upon citizens during the confiscation process of unlawful guns if they resisted.

Boy, aged six, shot dead by four-year-old friend in US

USA

A six-year-old boy in New Jersey has died after being shot by a friend, aged just four, as their parents stood nearby.

Toms River police chief Michael Mastronardy said: "The six-year-old ... retrieved a rifle within the house, a .22-caliber rifle, came outside...

“A shot went out and the six-year-old was struck in the head."

The incident followed another fatal shooting days ago, this time in Tennessee, that also involved a four-year-old boy.

God have mercy on Republicans.

There will be plenty of need for mercy if we lose the constitution. Why don't you move to Canada?

With a family full of veterans and several on active duty, and in contact with MANY of both, they are more than welcome to try to confiscate our arms. And they are right to fear us, because we will NOT go silently into that goodnight.

Tell ya what pookie, instead of this farce going on in Washington and having a President that is supposed to be a constitutional scholar, lets see you loons call for a constitutional congress. There are many things that need changed, but congress changing the constitution or trying to ammend it without a constitutional congress and voted in by 2/3 of the states is meaningless.........and unconstitutional.

Its looking like it may get ugly. There are many who will fight conforming to the intolerant fascist left as they incrementally dismantle our freedom, for now. I'm afraid having lost any influence on our education system to allow opinion and instruction other then the politically correct one spells certain victory for the left by owning the minds of our children. It takes time to condition the sheeple to accept that jack boot of authority, and the left is almost there.

This Supreme Court has ruled in favor of the 2nd amendment, in favor of owning, and keeping as many guns as you can afford, and of having all the ammo we need, so unless a conservative justice dies off Obama will not be naming a supreme court justice that makes any difference for a long time, maybe never!!
Kennedy 76 y/o
Scalia 76 y/o

Statistically one will not be on the court in 4 years.

If they both manage to survive that long, then President Hillary will get to replace one or both of them during her 8 years as president.

And if you LIE-berals hadn't been crying for our God-given Natural and Inalienable right to be infringed upon. Then there would have been an armed person there to BLOW THE BRAINS out of the shooter in less than ONE minute.
It IS, in FACT, the 'gun control' COWARDS that are RESPONSIBLE for ALL of the firearm deaths in this country. THEY are the ones that have SCREAMED out to have our rights infringed upon. It is THEY that are the REAL DOMESTIC ENEMIES. They have BETRAYED what our forebears fought, spilled their blood, and many died for. THEY ARE NOTHING MORE THAN TRAITORS. And worthy of TRAITOR'S FATES.
So gun control advocates are responsible for the 6 y/o shot & killed in New Jersey by his 4 y/o brother?

If there are no guns, and no crime, then why would there be a need for the police, or any one to have to be armed with a firearm? You are talking in circles, and making absolutely no sense. I suggest you put down the crack pipe, bottle, or whatever it is you are high on.
Because a firearm is more effective than a club against a group of people.

You nor any other libtard will ever take our guns away, get over the fact that it is never going to happen.
How exactly do you propose to do this?
Have the military go door to door?
Do you even have the sense to understand that most of your military people have families and they would never condone attacking their own people because to do so they would also have to accept the fact that their own families would also be attacked by fellow military personnel.
You better get your head on straight, the government will never attack it's own people as long as the people are armed, to do so would create a thousand Timothy McVeighs every week.
Not sure holding up Timothy McVeigh as a hero really helps your cause.
