People are so obsessed with the second amendment talking about guns. "Arms" doesn't necessarily mean firearms. If you can't own a gun, get a pair of katanas.

Arms within the second amendment refers to the weapons that the government uses for it's military so if the government manages to turn it's military on it's people then the people have a chance to fight back.

And who says the people can't fight back with swords?

I really hope you're joking...

Half joking, mainly because katanas are awesome.

In all seriousness, though, I think there should be some restriction on firearm sales. Better background checks, better psyche checks, and not making it so easy to buy a **** ton of weapons and ammo on the internet without anyone batting a eye, like James Eagan Holmes.

I agree entirely with that. Just so you know you can't actually order guns online though unless you're a dealer, just ammo.

The problem with the far right is that they think everyone should own a gun.
The problem with the far left is that they think that no one should have a gun (yet, contrary to what many think, the President is not that far to the left).

Is it really so hard to find a common middle-ground? I swear, "compromise" was taken out of the political dictionary sometime within the past 20 years. The political divide in the US is sickening.

I don't think any gun should be banned but do things like mandatory mental health checks, Limits on how many guns you can purchase within a certain period, Face-to-face purchases required on ammo, requiring licenses for automatic weapons, better documented sales and require transfers to be documented as well, etc.

If it were easy to perfect gun regulation, no one would be having this debate in the first place.

I never said it would be perfect but it would be much better than now.

Personally, I think there should be some restriction, simply because there are just some weapons that citizen's don't need to own. I'm not saying anything should be banned, but a common citizen shouldn't need a firearm that can spray bullets and kill multiple people within a few seconds. When our founding fathers wrote the second amendment, the only guns that existed at the time were ones where each shot needed to to be loaded before firing, and the reload process was extremely slow. I can't think of any reason why someone would need an AK-47 or the like outside of war.

If people really wanted to overthrow a "tyrannical government," I doubt politicians would put up enough of a fight for automatic weapons to be necessary.

As I had said, for fully automatic weapons a license, although with that have mandatory mental health check that are more in-depth and require periodical check-ups to make sure you're still sane.

Except katanas are overrated.
