The 2nd Amendment disables government
from interfering in a citizen 's possession of defensive personal weapons
I'm not disputing what the 2nd amendment states.
However, when that amendment was added to the constitution,
guns were far less technologically advanced and thus, far less dangerous.
Does that mean that Freedom of Speech
or Freedom of the Press do not apply to citizens on TV, radio
or those journalists who choose to use ELECTRIC
printing presses ?
(The USSC took cognizance of that in the HELLER
Does that mean that voters who have used modern voting machines
right to have their votes counted ?????????
Thay make it easier to defend yourself
That's true. But they also make it easier for criminals and crazies to get them
and thus, makes it easier for you to feel the need to defend yourself.
Do u mean that criminals will not
make their own guns
(as thay were made by hand, before the advent of electric tools?)
or that there is a reason that thay will not resort to the Black Market,
the same as thay never buy marijuana, nor cocaine,
and as no one EVER
bought alcohol in Speak Easys in Prohibition of the 192Os ??)
Because the citizens r so obsessively dedicated to doing
what the government wants
them to do ????
But, let me just say this; I'm not opposed to someone owning a gun purely for self-defense purposes.
However, I don't really see the point of hunting..
Some folks like to eat
If you like the sport, then go to a firing range.
Wait for a deer to wonder by ?
But even if you do have a gun just for hunting and/or self-defense,
I think the gun should be locked at home
The burglars of America
and far out of the reach of children
(or any others who don't know how to properly use a firearm).
Yeah; there are too many
What right do thay
have to live??
!! (The equal protection of the law
requirements of the Constitution shoud not be taken seriously.
Surely the Founders did not mean that mere children
have a right to defend themselves from predatory animals
nor from criminals who only wanna rob them, rape them or kill them.)
(Did u chance to see 13 year old pistol champion Dylan Holsey
on American Guns
?? He is very, very good with his revolvers; formidable.
If I were a violent criminal (or a hostile dog), I 'd not want to go up against HIM!!!
I began my gun collection at age 8.
Possession of my first gun, a .38 revolver, invested me with a sense of serenity, calm,
security & peace of mind, tho I did not actually need to use a
a defensive gun for several more decades.
I advocate children being taught defensive gunnery tactics
for accuracy, competent defense and safety at the earliest possible age,
the same as schools teach swimming; (my high school 'd not
let us graduate without learning to swim).
I believe that to the maximum possible extent (including voting),
children shud be treated with the same respect as anyone else.
I wanted that when I was a kid.
I have applied that etiquette in their favor, as an adult.
When I was a practicing trial attorney in New York,
I accorded children the same courtesy as anyone else.
