Clearly, you aren't close to grasping what rights are and are not.
"Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues. The Court’s opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.[United States v.] Miller’s holding that the sorts of weapons protected are those “in common use at the time” finds support in the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of dangerous and unusual weapons."
This is a quote, melon head. A real quote.
Not something a m/f c/s liar created- you know, one of your "quotes".
By the way, MOOCH: you notice he gave an opinion that conflicts with the cowards in the NRA who insist gun gnutters should have the right to carry into schools.
EXPLICITLY.
Funny how that is.

Funny how that's another lie of yours. A select few does not open the doors as you continue to bellyache about.

WASHINGTON (AP)— Schools across the nation should train selected staff members to carry weapons and should each have at least one armed security officer to make students safer and allow a quicker response to an attack, the director of a National Rifle Association-sponsored study said Tuesday.

The task force that produced the report has developed a 40- to 60-hour training program that the study recommends making available to school staff members who are qualified and can pass background checks.

"The presence of an armed security personnel in a school adds a layer of security and diminishes the response time that is beneficial to the overall security," said former Republican former Rep. Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas, who led the study.

Asked if every school would be better off with an armed security officer, Hutchinson replied, "Yes," but acknowledged the decision would be made locally.

"Obviously we believe that they make a difference," he said.

Have you ever seen the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution?
Because you seem to have the NRA version with half the words missing.
Ah... who can blame you for using yet another alias...
Have YOU ever seen it...? The reason I ask is even when the complete 2nd Amendment is posted as from the National Archives, YOU are the only one that says it is "wrong" or has something else "Stuck in" that isn't there.

YOU haven't been able to tell us what is wrong with it or what has been "stuck in"...why is that..?

Because you're an ignorant, lying, POS, "frustrated control freak"

No one is more "entitled" than the rich, and they can pay for their own care. Poor people can't.

Problem is, your kind just hate poor people.

Because if you had an IQ reaching past 80, you would be able to copy and paste the direct quote and find a few thousand sources.

Compare it to your "quotes" that you make up, Mooch, when google searches only turn up you.

That's funny, melon head: the NRA director is still blaming Sandy Hook on video games, and funny how he hasn't come up with the 6 billion dollars it would cost for the armed guards... putting aside there was an armed guard at Columbine and we know how that turned out.

But the NRA still insists gun gnutters should have the right to carry weapons- including assault weapons- into public schools.

As the NRA so lobbied in Michigan when the Sandy Hook massacre transpired.

Of course: 90 percent of Americans want universal background checks... and nine percent of Americans are felons.

I guess we know how the felons feel... just like you, eh, melon head?

Funny thing is it's only your claim son.

Clearly you were confused about what your so called sources on the 2nd Amendment were saying. Obviously the roadblocking is being done by people like you.

I was hoping you would go on all day long like threatened.

Will it matter when guns kill more than cars?
No- you'll come up with another excuse.
PS: Seat belts have save somewhere in the neighborhood of 250,00 lives. They save lives because laws were created to make manufacturers put them in cars and require people to use them.
So it's not the seat belt that saves lives it is the law that requires it's use. But some people ignore those laws. It is against the law to murder someone with a gun and people ignore those laws also. Funny how you left wing constitution hating nuts don't want to ban cars because laws are ignored but want to ban guns because laws are ignored.And don't give us this bullshit "cars are necessary for the economy" as if that makes it easier to accept the over 30,000 deaths each year. Make laws mandating public transportation.

Seat belt laws include laws that require they be put in the car in the first place and that they be used.

The gun industry is the only unregulated manufacturer of a consumer product that is specifically made to kill, with a level of secrecy that makes the tobacco industry look like a model of transparency. Cars are made to transport you, me, your family, your food and everything else you buy every day ... now what did you say guns are made for?

Then explain why quite a bit of the perverse 'gun control' laws have been shot down. And explain why the rate of gun ownership is SKYROCKETING. As well as explain why it's so hard for your LIE-beral 'masters' to get new [unconstitutional]'gun control' laws passed.
You freaks have been steadily LOSING, even though you have had [imaginary]'power' for five years now. Only you are far to IGNORANT to see it or admit it.
Moronic. Made absolutely NO sense whatever. Typical of a gun-nut's idea of debate, I guess.

Common sense dictates that a weapon which fires rapidly as long as I pull the trigger is a very, very dangerous weapon. It could kill a lot of people very fast, depending on how much ammo you have.

No one objects to single-shot weapons, or moderate-sized clips or magazines. When you get even semi-automatic assault rifles with 30 or more bullets in the magazine, however, you have an increasinly dangerous weapon which people don't really need.

Unless they're planning to go out and blow away 30 schoolkids or something.
