    Too early in this thread to bring out the good stuff.

    Perhaps our republicans can tell us why cannons which WERE available were not put in the 2nd?

    The Supreme Court has already decided that the government can limit what kinds of weapons private citizens can own without special permits. Time to extend that to the types of guns that Paddock used.

    actually it protects the right of gun ownership in a "well-regulated militia"

    guns have zero to do with protecting you from the US government.... hence treason being the only crime specified in the constitution. you probably shouldn't try to pretend you understand those issues.

    Right, they just don't want the average American to have them

    Is that an automatic weapon he is firing?

    I just love that grin. He must be at another GOP baseball game.

    The GOP is not my party and hasn't been for over a decade.

    My signature is pretty self-explanatory.
