At the risk of interrupting the name calling and feces throwing that seems to be dominating this thread lately, I thought you might all benefit from a brief summary of the current state of the law. In District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed the right of individuals to possess “firearms commonly used for lawful purposes.” They did not get specific as to what that meant beyond dealing with the particular issues of the case (banning handguns and requiring rifles and shotguns to be kept locked). Since then there have been several different Appellate Court decisions which upheld bans on semiautomatic weapons and large-capacity magazines. The basis for their determinations have varied but they generally agreed that the bans being considered did not seriously impact the ability of citizens to defend themselves. The Seventh Circuit in Friedman v City of Highland Park added that the Second Amendment right applied only to those types of guns common at the time the Amendment as ratified. What is particularly important is that the Supreme Court chose NOT to review any of these decisions, thus leaving those bans in place in those particular jurisdictions.

So please stop saying that the Second Amendment right to own guns is absolute. And if you want to live in an area with fewer guns please spend less time posting to the Internet and spend more time pushing your Government to take action.

Just say’n

In the 1950's most everyone owned a gun and many kids in rural areas carried a gun to school to protect them from wild animals as they walked to school. No one was killing other people, yet you could buy dynamite in the hardware store.

What happened to our country from the 1950's and now? The TV was invented and the Democratic criminal lying cartel owned the TV in America for 50 years. The Democrats used to TV to divide the American people and make us hate each other with the screams of racism and evil rich and evil businesses and so on. Look no future then the TV for the cause of all the shootings and mass murders in America...all done with intent to divide and conquer the people. The Democratic voters still blindly believe everything they see on TV

There are plenty of laws, regulations, procedures etc etc when it comes to pharmaceuticals. There are the same for the people that administer them. Though opioids still cause more deaths than gun violence. When are we gonna outlaw opioids?
