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. This means there is a natural right to keep and bear arms. And the federal government shall not infringe on that right because it is the citizens who make up the militia. It does NOT mean only members of a well regulated militia have the right to keep and carry arms. Stop fucking lying. no, trump, the gop and the nra are trash.

Technically, Cruz is right to say that every time there’s a big shooting, “we” play a ridiculous theater. The theater is conservative histrionics about how we absolutely mustn’t do anything to try and reduce the incidence of shootings.

The founding fathers were kind of extreme. They went into a seemingly unwinnable war over tea taxes. I don't doubt for a second they would LOVE modern firearms, and that they would support private ownership. This doesn't mean we don't need gun laws, but I disagree with the notion that the founding fathers were the pinnacle of rationality and civility.

What would you think if an Asian country all of a sudden decided that it was "too Asian" and that it had to bring in millions of non-Asians to make itself less Asian? Would that make any sense? And what if people who objected to this were condemned as "racists" and fired from their jobs? Could you imagine any Asian country doing that to itself? Diversity and multiculturalism are foisted on ALL White countries and ONLY on White countries. They are codewords for White genocide. Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

@Martin Hearn Except owning and driving a car is a privilege in this country and not written in the constitution as a right. But I do agree that if you drive drunk you should be put in jail and have your driving privileges taken away. That's where the analogy comes in to play to driving and owning a car. If you want to purchase an actual machine gun or a silencer for instance, you have to apply and register it and pay a special NFA tax for around $200 dollars. Much like getting a commercial drivers license is tougher to get and probably costs more money . So what you said is already in place for some types of guns.

Every car is registered by the government. Police have constant access to that data base. You need to do lots of training before you can gain a licence. If you want to use bigger vehicle you need more training Every sale is recorded by the government. If you move interstate you need to reregister. Yep, that could work.

Crazy to think if only England would have banned guns.... there wouldn’t be a USA Today... fun fact... when purchasing a firearm you have to undergo an FBI background check. As well as completely fill out a form stating your identity, place of residence, as well as your Social Number. Not to mention if there’s a ban, it will begin the fall of of freedom. The first order of action Hitler inacted was a ban on guns before starting WWII... just an FYI, not a lot of people know this information. Have a nice day. Don’t just listen to public figures do you’re research, because people lie. A lot.

That is excellent. One point is that the guns were not confiscated in Australia, some types of guns were banned and compulsorily bought back by the government and destroyed. And it was a conservative government that did this in response to a mass murder of 35 people. The US politicians who oppose gun control make Australian politicians look smart.

Too bad one of the mass shootings doesn't happen to the republicans, like Ted Cruz, Matt Gaetz, Mitch Mcconnell, Lindsay Graham, and their ilk that are so against any gun control. Wonder how quick they would change their tune? Although I'm sure it's not likely as they would just find something else to blame for the cause of death rather than the guns (i.e. mental health, different race, not strong enough family values, etc.)

Why can’t these stupid republicans come up with a better argument? Stronger gun regulation doesn’t mean getting rid of ALL guns or taking away guns from responsible gun owners. It means making it harder for people who shouldn’t have guns from getting their hands on them. If they are a law abiding responsible gun owner then it shouldn’t effect them at all whatsoever. Are these people upset about it cause they are criminals? Right now there are basically NO regulations. So putting restrictions on them could mean barely ANYTHING. Just do SOMETHING. They would rather make it harder to vote than harder for it to buy a gun.

I think the GOP lawmakers just want to keep their jobs cause the only reason they have jobs is cause of the NRA. Your everyday Republican citizen is just a sheep who repeats the same thing that the republican lawmakers say. They are too stupid to think for themselves. Stronger gun regulations doesn’t mean taking away ALL guns. It never has meant that. But they can’t come up with a good reason not to have stronger regulations so they pretend that that’s what it means cause they have no argument. It’s like when you tell your kid your gonna sell some of his toys cause he has too many and he tells you, your gonna sell all my toys and never buy me toys again. It is the weakest argument there is. But there you go. Alternate facts.

You are sort of right. The government changed the licence requirements to own certain guns. Most people would not qualify under the new requirements so would have to hand their newly illegal guns into the police. It was only fair that the government compensate legal gun owners who thru no fault of their own found themselves with illegal guns. In effect it was a buy back. But the government was not legally obliged to pay compensation, but decided to do so with overwhelming public support. Every gun type is still available to be purchased if you hold a licence for that gun. Ar-15 can still be legally purchased, but it is very difficult to qualify for a licence to own one. There are also a host of other regulations about registration, storage, background checks, etc. We have just as many guns in public hands today as before the new gun laws 25 years ago.

Their point is pure speculation and fear-mongering that sensible regulation will lead to a total firearm ban for civilians.

@Dave J. Each state has their own National Guard and it is run by the state with each governor acting as the commander-in-chief.

Seems like you just assumed "National" guard is owned by the federal government.

@Lulu Matthewiosi You're wrong. The Founding Fathers disagree with you. The 2nd Amendment was included in the Bill of Rights *specifically* to deter the abuses of a tyrannical government. Of course, it does confer an additional defense against foreign enemies should they invade (Russia even admitted that a ground invasion of the U.S. would be very difficult because of this), but that is not the main reason it was written. Again, the 2nd Amendment is *first and foremost* about the people protecting themselves against a ruling class/party that seeks to strip them of their liberty. "What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms." - Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, December 20, 1787 "Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of." - James Madison, Federalist No. 46, January 29, 1788 "As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms." - Tench Coxe, Philadelphia Federal Gazette, June 18, 1789 "Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves." - William Pitt (the Younger), Speech in the House of Commons, November 18, 1783

@Bringer of Truth But the second amendment wasn't about tyrannical governments, but the U.S. being able to defend itself from outside forces threatening the U.S. (aka the British) through mobilizing its citizens in form of militias as the U.S. wasn't able to afford a professional military as a newly founded independent state at the time. It had nothing to do with the threat of the US government itself turning tyrannical.

“The right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” The Founders understood that the PEOPLE *are* the militia. When a tyrannical government arises, the National Guard won’t save you. Because the National Guard *is* the government.
