    Read that earlier today and rolled my eyes. This is the kind of thinking that does more harm than good when advocating for common-sense gun control. Hell, its hard enough to bring up sensible measures without the frothers* getting all frothy.

    Funny thing is the Spin

    Repeal the 2nd does not mean No Guns---it just means your like the rest of the world

    But I'm sure those Frothers will try and connect those dots---Proving once again that Fear is a good weapon upon the masses

    To Stevens' credit, this is what needs to be done to control guns (assuming you think they should be controlled). But It ain't relatively simple, despite what Stevens says.

    2/3s majority of each house and ratification by 3/4s of the states. Good luck with that. Think ERA.

    Nothing is "simple."

    Repeal of the 2nd is kinda stupid. Not necessary, not worth the division at this point, it could be fatal.

    Has anyone here even read Heller vs DC besides me? Scalia says it "straight out" haha as well as a lawyer/judge can talk straight...that AR-15 are NOT protected by the 2nd. That's just a note of interest, I am not implying anything. Though lately I am almost for banning them, like kids, I've had enough as well. Man I love those kids. they are simply amazing. We all need to hope that "adulthood" will not ruin their passion and their hope as it has done to so many of us.

    I find the assault on free thought disturbing,
    I find the willingness to give it up frightening.

    I agree that bullying is a problem, Just not the cause behind these shootings.

    It was the main cause behind the Columbine and the Aurora shootings. Columbine shooters were bullied big time and the theater shooter told his shrink that's what he was getting even for.
    Can you be sure about the others?

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Just so you know. 65% of male kids are bullied. Something wrong with us and how we raise our kids.?

    For children, take the device and they will be quieter than the water below the grass.
