    I bring up autos on a comparative basis; you need a frame of reference with similar proliferation in the population.

    When did he say anything about turning frogs gay? The harmful products turn a majority of amphibians sterile and/or asexual. Infowars gives PLENTY of proof on that. But no, if Stephen Colbert says it, it must be true.

    Looking at using alternative uses for the machines, using an automobile for intentional killing is much easier than what you ask.

    The 2nd Amendment?

    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

    The purpose is to have a recourse for people against the US government - not other people. And as a citizen, you are not fighting against the government on a daily basis. You can be fully prepared to defend yourself against the government by keeping guns in your home only. If you decide to take up arms against the US government (per the second amendment), you will be breaking federal law likely anyways...and so will be able to take your gun out of the house to fight them.

    Per law, the net result is that there should be no legal carrying of guns on public streets that put people in danger. And anyone (those open to committing criminal acts included) should be prosecuted for doing so. Not that we should stop street carrying of guns...but the second amendment doesn't protect it.

    The Heller decision allows us to pass laws regulating guns the same as we regulate cars. So, just stop.

    IINM the general consensus is that the Founders' intention was to keep a source of trained men ready to serve, as there was no standing army.

    Once we created a standing army it became moot and should have been modified or repealed. The new life breathed into it by the NRA as a political marketing tool is perverse and utterly foreign to the original intent.

    At some point people will have had enough of the murders and we'll repeal the Second, and the Usual Suspects will launch their war just like the last one they had to protect their ownership of slaves, and they'll lose because they're still unproductive, uneducated, and inept, and then we'll have two hundred more years of their whining, impotent butthurt until their next tantrum.

    Or we can finally expel them from the Union and get on with facing the real challenges of a modern state and stop having to babysit these infants.

    ....Since we obviously can't do anything about it, even in the face of people offering ideas, that has to mean that you accept other people needlessly dying like what is constantly happening.

    How about we nominate you to call the families.

    No it doesnít, literally everyone here except the guy who only makes intellectually dishonest arguments and isnít capable of having an honest debate cited a bombing when it was insanely obvious that I meant a car was being used as THE WEAPON ie not a bomb.

    JFC you know you watch too much Fox News when..

    Heller is not everything you think it is.
    It effectively stripped the words "well regulated militia" out of the Second.
    And yes, it upheld things like concealed carry permitting.
