Gun sales and profits are exploding. Haven;t heard of too many folks having their guns taken away, unless and until a crime was committed.
I never have understood this debate, unless we're talking about the 'real motives' behind it all. RECORD SALES AND PROFITS! Fear sells, its as simple as that.
I find it disturbing that after all these posts no one bothered to quote the 2nd. After all, is pretty short, sweet and (purposely?) vague. Shame, shame :-D
AMENDMENT II (ratified December 15, 1791)
"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."
Question: How many gun owner posters currently belong to a "well regulated Militia?"
As kathyp sorta pointed out above, when this country selected to install a "standing army" instead of its past reliance on Militias it kinda took the wind out of the sails, or took the real power out of the Amendment from the people and returned that power to the STATE.…the 'peoples' power to keep and bear arms was eliminated then IMO.
