    Bring it up to date. I blame the us, the American people not just the Republican party for allowing that Amendment to remain an archaic part of the constitution, and all for votes and money. We will never stop violence nor the nuts in America but that does not mean we should stop trying. And for America to make it so easy for the nuts to get the means to kill children wholesale is unbelievable.
    The Court is not the answer they are just robed politicians with a great job. If one reads the second amendment it sounds like something from the dark ages. That period has long passed. Our militias are now part of the nut groups.

    No. We cant ban guns. Its impractical. There are too many, too easy to hide. The cops wouldnt follow that order, neither would the military.

    Now...I do wonder what the Founders would have written if they had an epedimic of colonial schoolhouses being massacred with muskets and bayonets by fellow citizens. But they didn't, their society didnt do that, except through warfare when the Brits did it.

    Mental health is an answer to start with.

    Second, not a gun ban, but measures for gun security. This kid should never have been near guns. They werent his. He wasn't 21, so he couldnt leagally own a pistol anyway. And that rifle should've been in a safe, somewhere he couldnt get it.

    When faced with a problem, the left automatically chooses the solution that leads to less freedom.

    Ironic, considering they call themselves "liberals". :cool:

    And then let's count the Dems who voted to extend and expand it.

    Still want to pretend that liberals support individual liberty?
