PostSubject: The 2nd Amendment....   Sat Apr 21, 2007 8:29 am

Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution wrote:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Clearly one of the more important amendments in the Bill of Rights, and one that a lot of people don't seem to understand. The whole reason for this was to allow citizens to arm themselves and to destroy the government if it turns tyrannical.

And yet there are those who think it should be ignored, Brady being one of them. Personally I think they are the people who haven't paid much attention in history class.

The 2nd Amendment is necessary but it needs its limits. First, no person with a felony record should be allowed to purchase a weapon. Second, no one who is mentally insane should be allowed one either. Most importantly, no one at all should be allowed to own a semi-automatic or automatic gun: those are for terrorists and the military only.

You can not have the first amendment without the second.

Agreed, just as long as it's limited reasonably.

Well I don't completely agree with your limitations.

I was with you up until that last part.

Technically, not allowing people to own those kinds of weapons is still a restriction on the 2nd Amendment.

What does a common person like you and I need an assault rifle for? Do you go killing Talibans in your neighborhoods everyday? Are you fighting off an army or something? No, so you don't need stuff like that. A couple of pistols and a shotgun is all that's necessary.

Again what do you need something like that for? Are you in the military?

Does it matter whether I need an AK or not? No.

Need is not required to exercise a right.

All you need is a brain. Which is eerily harder to obtain than an assault rifle.

Well you have a point there but what about public perception? What do you think is gonna go through someone's mind when they hear you have an automatic at home?

Does that really matter to you what they think?
