What the hell is the world coming to?

Virginia Tech Campus Reels From Shooting
That Leaves at Least 33 Dead


You can bet this will spark up the 'gun law' issue again. But I can't see the Yanks doing anything about it. Say one word about stiffer gun laws and a Yank will scream Second Amendment.

But do any of them even know what it says or how it was initially intended? I doubt it.

The Second Amendment, as passed by the House and Senate and later ratified by the States, reads:

“ 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. ”

If you think about when this thing was written, it makes sense. If the British show up you can round up the neighbors and defend the settlement. Guess what? The British ain't comin' anymore. Get with the fuckin' program.

I think it should just be illegal to have a gun. Period. Sure it might be dangerous for a while, but it would erase the line between criminal and honest citizen. You have a gun, your a criminal. Period, end of story.

Whoa! I can hear all you 'hunters' out there. Honestly, what possible reason could you really have for owning a semi-automatic? And would you really suffer if you had to hunt with an actual shotgun instead of a rocket launcher? Please don't piss on my head and tell me its raining.

I guess we are not sure yet how this guy got his weapon, but you can thank your 2nd amendment for making it easy for him to get one.

living here in the US for many years, i can't see gun laws every changing... which i see as a bad thing.

a friend of mine had a great idea.. leave the guns alone.. but tax the hell out of bullets! make then sooooo expensive that people won't buy boxes of them!

I think Chris Rock said at one point, make bullets $5,000 a piece. People would think twice about 'wasting' them.

As a partial Yank I must point out that some of us agree with you. Moreover, the Supreme Court has found that the 2nd Ammendment does not provide a guarantee for gun ownership, rather members of the state militia can provide for their own weapons.

Ironically, members of the national guard are only allowed to use weapons supplied to them (usually crappy, sub-par, manufactured by some company with cronnies in the government).

Nonetheless, it is easier to get a gun in most places than it is to get Sudafed.
