CDZ Is the issue not that the U.S Forefathers didn't see the technology, but didn't imagine the crazies?

    I hear many of the same arguments, for and against weapons. One very popular one is that the U.S Forefathers didn't imagine such high powered technology. I have to think that if they were smart enough to design such an impressive Constitution, that surely they could foresee vast advanced in technology, well beyond their current capabilities.

    Is the question then, not about the technology, but about the vast change in the number of crazies? Who could imagine some nutjob grabbing a automatic rifle and attacking thousands of people for which he has no prior connection or personal debt owed? This obviously was not the intention of one bearing arms.

    Even 20 years ago not many could imagine the scope of global terrorism, certainly such unbalanced individuals in society committing such a heinous crime couldn't be anticipated by many, certainly not by civilisation hundreds of years removed.

    Thoughts?

    Of course, but the level of crazies now is unmatched. Without political motivation or personal connection to the victims, any rational mind becomes scrambled trying to understand this.

    Just because they aren't releasing the "motivation" doesn't mean that there isn't one.

    No, no, the crazies happened about 70 years ago, and it took real men to put those crazies in their places(6 feet under). Shame that the crazies have taken over the government for the past 40 years making it very hard to put those crazies back into the asylums.

    The overriding question when it comes to any right is "should law abiding citizens be penalized", by curtailing their right...gun control advocates claim most of America is behind them on certain issues and they break out charts and cite what this like minded professor or that like minded psychologist says to bolster their claim but go back over the last 40 or 50 years of U.S. elections to see what American voters think of gun control advocates...you won't find many who won national office on gun control

    Today, you liberals call them the "lunatic fringe" that were racists and slave owners. You really hate anyone who doesn't bow down to liberalism.

    The patriots of the founding of this country weren't even close to communists, because even though slavery was happening, there were many opposed to slavery and were fighting to free them. Communists don't allow anyone to be free except the liberal elites who "supposedly" know better than the rest of the sheep masses. Did you get your GED from a public school?
