    It's an odd thing. The Obama administration ran guns across the border into Mexico, gave them to rebel groups in Syria, and God only knows who else, but does not want American citizens to have access to them.

    Very odd. It's almost as if Obama and company distrust the American people above all others.

    At least you admit that the right to bear arms can be regulated and limited.

    But the Founding Fathers never intended the second amendment to mean we could bear arms, just militias.

    They just forgot to enforce this for abouUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUt 200 years or so.

    How's that?

    Well there is nothing you can't regulate or limit. It just depends on if you want a free society or not.

    In prison, they have to take all their freedom away cuz they use it to hurt people. Perhaps you think American society has reached this level.

    I guess after decades of children being raised in an amoral, drug ridden, abortion fed, atmosphere of public school, we may be getting to that point. I'm sure you, like many other Progs, can hardly wait.

    Do you high five each other every time there is a public shooting thinking, this time they just have to take their guns away!
