    Certainly the shooter and his mother were neither well regulated nor part of a militia contributing to the security of a free state.

    So what's up with that? Why did they have access to such guns? And why doesn't the State do anything to protect the lives of children at the mercy of whack jobs?

    Individuals are. That's what the SCOTUS says.

    It is a Constitutional right.

    The militia was GWs thing. He didn't want a standing Army, but that's what we got anyway. And and Air Force and a Marine Corp and a Navy and a Coast Guard. So much for his grand plan...

    AIDS kills many more in America each year than semi-automatic rifles.

    You are trying to ban the wrong activity.

    Your homophobia aside....I do believe that there are quite a few regulations that came about as a result of the AIDS epidemic. Gay men can't donate blood regardless of their HIV status. Bath houses were closed. There's all kinds of mandatory testing and reporting as a result of the AIDS epidemic in the US. Your strawman is a fail.

    Yes, they did. A bad ruling, imo.

    I've read it. Show me where these two were part of a well regulated militia securing the state.

    You are showing your stupidity again snippy.

    How many times have AIDS walked into a classroom of first graders and killed them?

    And where in the COTUS does it say you can have semi auto weapons capable of firing hundreds of rounds in minutes?

    You aren't bright, but then again, you are a liberal.

    But I am here to help.

    Here is an analogy for you to help you understand the Second Amendment:

    'A well-equipped carpentry being necessary to build quality housing, the right to own hammers shall not be infringed. '



    You are most welcome!
