There is to much violence any more. If some idiot thinks they are going to hurt my family or steal things that I have worked hard for you better believe I will bear arms! So don't even think about taking my guns away!

Violence? I am 74 and have had a gun pointed at me once in that time. Obviously I survived that as did the kid who held me up. Other places are more dangerous. But remember that even most police officers never fire their weapons at a person during their career. The years in the 60's to 90's were violent, judged by the number of homicides, but the number has dropped dramatically since that time. Explanations differ.

The threat of having a gun fired at a thief may be enough to stop one. Just like having a security system sign in the yard is a deterrent. But it has to be perceived as a real threat!

Every year, slowly but methodically we lose another right to bear arms. I don't care what the legislation says, I just want my voice to be heard. We KEEP The 2cnd Amendment in full as it was intended. Fear is driving a our rights to bear arms down a terrible drain from which there is no coming back. We have to put voice to the will of the people or we WILL lose our right to bear arms and become a nation easily manipulated by every threat from within and without.

The second amendment is not even about our rights to own a gun. It states we have the right to bare arms in a controlled militia, in other words it means we have the right to revolt against our government if we as a people feel repressed. But it is hard to revolt if we can not arm ourselves.

If criminals want guns they're gonna find a way to get them. What's the point in taking good people's rights away? Why should we be victims of something that our "great" government can't control with or without laws? Example: Drugs are illegal yet how many are out there on the streets? My point is good people will be good and bad people will be bad no matter what laws are out there. My rights shouldn't be violated because politicians feel they need to take a pointless stand.

The Court’s opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms. Miller’s holding that the sorts of weapons protected are those “in common use at the time” finds support in the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of dangerous and unusual weapons."
