Gun Control


Gun Control

The 2d Amendment to the US Constitution states: "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"

It is clear from the text and the history that the intent of the amendment was to assure that State militias were armed to defend the country from invasion and to prevent the Central Government from subjugating the states.  There is NOTHING in the text or history leading to it that supports:

  • Automatic weapons for hunting
  • Weapon availability to children
  • Weapon availability to mentally unstable people
  • Weapon availability in offices, schools, theaters, clubs, etc.
  • Weapon availability to anyone other than those IN A MILITIA!!!


  • The loss of life at Columbine if Dylan and Eric had been armed with baseball bats rather than a 9-mm semi-automatic handgun, a rifle and a couple of sawed-off shotguns.
  • The damage that Seung-Hui Cho could have done with a pair of knives rather than 2 semi-automatic pistols at Virginia Tech.

There is absolutely NO REASON to allow the continued sale of automatic and semi-automatic weapons to the public other than paranoia!
