46. The gunners keep talking about their 2nd Amendments Right as if they were absolute.

As you mentioned, it is not the 2nd Amendment, but a highly biased, Supreme Court decision that said otherwise.
What about the Rights of those killed by people that should not be having any guns in the first place?

Every time this is brought up, the gunners cry 'gun grabber' and try to shut the discussion down. Their only answer is to respond by saying the victim(s) should have been armed themselves, thereby making the victims responsible for their own deaths. People needing to be armed in the sanctuary of their own church? Are you kidding me?

Without meaning to, by exclaiming 'gun grabber' at anyone pushing tougher weapon laws, they are putting themselves into the same category as the deranged killers. They are actually defending the killers by refusing to go along with common sense weapon laws. Think about that the next time you read any of their excuses to maintain the status quo.

But what of the Rights of those killed by people that shouldn't be having any guns in the first place? Such as the nine (9) people killed in their own church, during a prayer meeting? Or the kids in the 1st grade classroom at Sandy Hook? What of their Rights? Their Right to live?
Does the 2nd Amendment over ride their Right to life? It would seem so for some people.

But that still does not change the fact that no matter what, we have way too lax gun regulation in this country.
