Every time the subject of guns comes up, out comes the constitutional rights argument. I will point out in only the first 10 amendments to the constitution, commonly called the Bill of Rights, where this comes into being. Apparently the original drafters either did not think it was worthy of inclusion or were concerned it might hold up verification.

As I have stated, I hope to live long enough to vote on repealing the 2nd Amendment. It is archaic, obsolete, and an affront to our society as a whole. Those who believe it is necessay just have no confidence in their common man. I absolutely cannot think of another circumstance in our society which is more grounded in racism.

This is because what you apparently know about federalism and the US Constitution comes only from your brief stint in government schools during an era when "states rights" meant turning the dogs loose on black protesters.

Actually, the origin of the Bill of Rights comes from what today is the amazing notion that the drafters of the original charter had no idea that the federal government, which was being formed for the limited purposes of coining money, and raising an army, and treaties with foreign nations, and such, would have the temerity to stick its big fat federal nose in such issues such as freedom of religion, speech, freedom of the press, etc. Hard to believe, today, what with the statists wanting the federal government to control every aspect of life that 100 years of government education and federalism have created from our population.

As for the notion that "racism" fits into this equation somehow, that is a shibboleth that only a mother could love. The idea that one's desire to exercise a right under the Constitution should be curtailed because a high percentage of the likely recipients of defensive bullets will be black (the obvious innuendo) is itself hate speech, barely worthy of a reply other than to state the obvious: "Is the exercise of Freedom of Religion under the First Amendment an anti-Christian act?"
