Second Amendment by Wolverinebabe Second Amendment by Wolverinebabe
This is from my other account; it's being moved here with my other controversial stamps and such

"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 inrfinged."

And yes, the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right. The "free State" refered to in the bill means the citizens of the State, both on the national and state level. Citizens need to arm themselves to protect themselves not only from criminals, but from an out-of-control government as well.

Also, I'm tired on hearing how apparently, if I own and know how to use a gun, I'm "dangerous", and how some people are "afraid" of guns. If you are apathetic towards firearms, then I really don't mind (as long as you don't try and take away my rights of course). It's just...there's nothing to fear about it. I own my own rifle, and I know personally what it's like to use it, and I have been trained to use it safely. No, it's not scary. It's merely a device I use to shoot targets with for bonding time with my dad, and (though I hope this never happens) to defend myself with if I am being attacked. Remember kiddos, fear stems from ignorance. Just because you don't understand something, it doesn't mean it's bad.

Note: If you are one of those anti-gun non-Americans, I am not interested in hearing your shenanigans; this is directed to an AMERICAN document, and to be discussed with AMERICAN citizens. If this was directed at gun rights on an international level, than I would be open arms.

Other than that, I would like to hear your opinions/interpretations of the Second Amendment. Just be sure it's in a discussive manner, and not some "OH U FCKIN HICK GUNS KILL PEOPLE AND SHOUILD BE BANNED CUZ ITZ EVVVVIIIILLLLLL".

Trust me, I've heard it all :B

Also note I may or may not reply; I have another, more importent account to keep track of

Canada bans firearms, and they both have more rights and a smaller murder rate than we do. It's tried and tested. There is more to the world than the US.

Smaller murder, maybe, but you are more likely to get mugged over there. Look at Switzerland, they are only behind the U.S. in privately firearms, and they are the safest country in the world

I'd rather take a 5% chance of being mugged rather than a 10% chance of being shot.

Did you look below that at the part about Switzerland?

My reply was general, not factual. I thought that was obvious.

One of the things I talked with my mom about is; If they're gonna ban guns, why not paper or computers or anything else? They can kill the same as a gun. Citizens have the right to defend themselves, and I'd rather it be with a gun than a heavy printer or something.

You most certainly do have the right to own (legally-obtained) guns. And as far as I'm personally concerned, you can conceal-carry as well.

However, my issues with gun control stem from the lack of appropriate licensing laws in thirty-one states and the availability of some semi-automatic weapons since the National Firearms Act expired. You do not need a semi-automatic to hunt and you do not need one to defend your home.

Define "appropriate licensing"; also, the thing about licenses is that they can be revoked, which kills the ideal that gun ownership is a right.

And by what right, by what code, by what standard do you get to decide who needs a semi-automatic firearm?

I see no need for civilians to have semi-automatics ever, to be honest. I don't see a reason for someone to require one for hunting or defending their home or using on a shooting range.

I probably misspoke, also, I more meant registration. While I would prefer to see a system akin to the driver's licensing system (which needs tons of work itself I'll admit), I can see your concern there.
