    Chet you say it correctly; the point I'm making is that an "gun" is an "dead" thing and laying around ready to "to kill"

    Since this country is full of mental and unstable people, why give them an easy tool to kill someone from an distance?

    Make it more difficult to get such is the only way. In 1790 you could load only one single shot with your pistol, which took quite some time to load. I had an beautiful French made dueling set; So I know, loading it, took time. At that same time the "second amendment" was written. So they did not foresee developments of this weapon as it is today. So rewrite it or discard it. But the NRA loves it, but they are liars, because it states nowhere, that civilians can own an AR 15 (as an example) and of course reject any correction to this text.

    This is again an typical lack of maintaining an"old" documents and refusing to update the Constitution (only about 150 updates in 300 plus years) As with so many documents related to the Constitution they are outdated an barely updated. "case law" in now used in most cases in order not to "disturb" the original document which requires an process to make it as difficult as possible. This way the law system here has become an mess ; let alone finding the "trail" throughout" history. The reason being is to keep the "lawyers" busy to make more money. Politics keep those things in place, so they can "tinker" with it as much as possible. Ask Barr how you can profit from it. Anyway as Schmidt described it; it is the British inherited system which will bring this country to the came place as the Titanic.

    As chet wrote, people need guns to protect themselves, thus is why people need guns.

    Dutch wrote that there are crazy people out here owning guns, who shouldn't.

    Which is exactly why gun owners need to be licensed, and the second amendment amended or scrapped entirely, it's outdated, antiquated.

    BTW, Ted Cruz went with Donald trump in attacking Chicago, citing gun violence, alluding that Chicago has a high crime rate by use of guns. I never hear any republicans citing Cleveland Ohio, which has a much worse crime rate than Chicago, and also, it's not brown people committing these drug and gun crimes, if one scrutinizes the crime statistics. It's mainly white people committing these gun crimes, and black on black crimes, which is why this country is so f'ed up.

    White Men Have Committed More Mass Shootings than Any Other Group

    newsweek.com/white-men-have-committed-m...

    The government needs to be spending money in these neighborhoods on education and providing meaningful employment opportunities to the citizens. But our government keeps on ignoring these citizens. Lori Lightfoot is wrong in thinking of using data analytics to fight crime, she needs to be lobbying the state and fed. to get funding for jobs and education in these crime ridden neighborhoods.

    It's usually angry white people who commit these mass shootings. The Texas shooter was white, and acquired his weapon/s without going through a background check. Now authorities are looking for the asswipe that sold him the gun/s. And now in Texas, a backwards thinking bunch of fools, can open carry in churches and schools, how asinine is that?

    San Francisco just passed a resolution naming the NRA as a domestic terrorist organization.

    There WAS a time when the NRA was a respectable organization, but it's evolved to the point that San Francisco's resolution is actually pretty accurate.

    It didn't take the NRA long to respond.

    "This ludicrous stunt by the board of supervisors is an effort to distract from the real problems facing San Francisco, such as rampant homelessness, drug abuse, and skyrocketing petty crime, to name a few. The NRA will continue working to protect the constitutional rights of all freedom-loving Americans".

    Their statement, which really means, we'll continue giving $$$$$$ to politicians and gun lobby groups so we can keep our guns.
