I think the second amendment is clearly worded and states that the people should be armed because the state will always have its own militia (as it's necessary to the security of a free state).
That being said, I think the second amendment should be repealed.
You gun nuts always bring up that if nobody were armed then only the criminals would have arms. Well, what if everybody were armed?
Do you think that might change the way criminals consider using their arms?
I would say so. If I were a criminal and sure that my quarry were armed, I'd have to find some way to bring the advantage back to my favor.
That would mean gaining the element of surprise, and using overwhelming firepower to my advantage. Overwhelming firepower could be through numerical superiority, or the use of superior weapon systems, assualt style weapons with large magazine capacities would be more than enough, and cheap too!
"assault style weapons" with "large magazine capacities" - vomited directly from the catch-phrase gun grabbers. Did I mention that Cho used some of those "RESTRICTED CAPACITY" ten-round magazines that all of you said would make us all safer? Duuuhhhhh... He just bought more magazines. Sheesh.
BTW... "assault style" crap is about one thing- guns that LOOK mean. Most of the anti-gunners are woefully inept at understanding how guns work. The 94 AWB was just about "mean" looking guns. Such stupidity.
