The US Constitution was also written in the 18th century, when a gun was a single shot, loose powder, muzzle loaded long gun with a bayonet on the end. The bayonet was probably the most dangerous part.

Guns today barely resemble guns from the 18th century.

This notion that the population needs guns to overthrow a tyranical regime is a bit off base too. Didn't Egypt just overthrow their dictator with protests and rocks?
I would say that rights are eternal and inalienable... so do you want a free democracy or not?

I'm sure that if they had guns they would have used them anywhere good people rise up.

And for the US its not so much about removing a tyrannical government. It's about my home is my castle and I will not surrender the right to defend it.

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.

Well looky here Fred, you arguing for more social control and me the socialist arguing for free rights... Go figure lol

The thing is "going postal" is recent phenomenon and guns are as old as the republic....something else is the root problem here...

Not sure exactly but I'm betting its something to do with the state of mental health care and the definitions of what mental health is...

Well when you put it like that, gun control is an infringement isn't it?

Edit: Yes I know that's verbatim

The concept of a militia comes from the tradion of free men organizing themselves to respond to a threat,
The very definition of protecting ones castle wouldn't you say?

Connecticut State Constitution

“Every citizen has a right to bear arms in defense of himself and the state.”
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

This is why Booth shot the bear. Just exercising his constitutional right.

He wanted his bear arms!

Now that would really take some guts.

Automatic weapons were not used at Sandy Hook.
Semantics, semi-automatic, automatic, either way its too much.
