Gunning Down We the People


Amendment II

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.

The crazed person who took his gun or guns onto the campus of Virginia Tech today was not part of a "well regulated militia." Nor can I believe he was interested in the security of a free state.
No one has any problem with the idea that arms like Stinger ground-to-air missles can be regulated or that the government can strictly control the supply of fissionable materials to keep it out of the hands of the thousands of people in this country alone who could tinker together a crude atomic bomb. There is no legally coherent reason that the government cannot regulate other weapons of war, such as assault rifles and other high-powered, rapid-fire small arms.
Today, there are another 32 reasons why we should sharply regulate these weapons ... now!

Can I read the other 31 reasons please
You'll find most of them here.
