57. That doesn't mean we'll give up trying, permatex.

FACT: The Second Amendment was thought necessary and drawn up to apply to what they knew of gun currency of the day. Cannon and muskets. If all you gun lovers are willing to go back to muskets, which were the firearms covered by and the object of that Amendment, then I'm fine with it. Because then you're dealing with the actual nature of the Second Amendment. The same Second Amendment, mind you, that calls for a WELL-REGULATED militia.

I tell you this, and you're just going to have to find a way to accept my emotions here and if you don't like it, TOUGH SHIT.

I am FUCKING SICK AND TIRED of hearing gun apologists pop up after EVERY SINGLE GOD DAMN ONE OF THESE MASSACRES, mewling about their rights and "guns don't kill people! People kill people!" Yeah. WITH GUNS. You all say the same thing. Second Amendment! Oh WOE! You take our AK 47s away today and tomorrow you're coming after our pop-guns too! Slippery Slope! Never mind all those who just died at the hands of a GUNman. Too bad for them but their rights are secondary! Cost-benefit anaylsis, 'eh? If a few people have to die so we can preserve our right to our precious guns that we can get at any gun show and then turn around in the parking lot of that gun show and sell them to anybody we damn well feel like, well dem's da breaks. We have the right to defend ourselves! WE're the victims here!!!! george zimmerman certainly thought so, didn't he!? You all fall back on your Founding Fathers who certainly would have blessed all manner of personal destruction devices all the way up to AK 47s and M16s and all the GOD DAMN Glocks you can eat.

And I have heard all the arguments and canards and BS about the way that, somehow, the term "Well-Regulated Militia" just magically does not apply to regulating ownership of guns.

I have heard it all, over and over and over and over and somehow you guys always trump the rights of the murdered. Hope it's worth it to ya.
