  • The amendment does not apply to a modern state in the 21st century.

    Today, we do have an effective military and police power to protect our rights and enforce security measures. The only reason why someone could have a weapon is for hunting and sportsmanship. The idea that you own a weapon to protect yourself has opened the door to too many tragedies and the facts that USA is at the foreword of number of gun fatalities has to stop. Countries like Japan do have a very strict policy regarding guns ownership and gun violence is quasi inexistent. If people feel insecure it may be for other reasons that cannot be dispel by owning a gun, and these reasons, social, jobs, poverty... Need to be addressed first.

  • Ask the people

    There isn't really a referendum setup, but there should be a referendum on this. Ask the people what they think about it. As far as how people should vote, there are two options: either we hang on to the constitution for eternity - which obviously there is good reason for doing; or we can recognise that the destruction caused by guns is so great that it no longer should be considered a basic right.

  • The 2nd amendment is not relevant today

    When our forefathers made this amendment we were fighting the British and French and the need to bear arms was necessary, as we did not have a strong Army, so we needed every day citizens to help.
    This is not true today and the NRA is so wrong and corrupt.

  • Guns are unnecessary

    The framers did not intend for citizens to use automatic or semi-automatic weapons for personal use. Back then, it took a considerable amount of time and effort to load a gun and shoot one bullet. Now, we can use a magazine with 50 bullets receptively and be able to reload in seconds.

  • Lets Join the Civilized World

    Its debatable how the founding fathers interpreted the right to bear arms, but even if you interpret it to mean an unfettered right for individuals to have guns - I don't care. We are awash with guns, and we are all less safe because of it. Ban individual ownership of guns.

  • The 2nd Amendment is obsolete.

    The NRA's consistent opposition to all reasonable gun control laws leaves the country with only one choice: the repeal of the 2nd amendment. No one with any knowledge of the founding fathers' intentions could argue in favor of this amendment or support the irresponsible actions of the NRA and their fear mongering.

  • The rest will fall.

    If we as a nation decide to repeal the 2ND Amendment, then the 1st Amendment falls, the 3rd Amendment falls, the 4th Amendment falls, the fifth Amendment falls and so on and so forth. The world's most notorious dictators throughout history have taken away guns from the citizens and then committed untold atrocities against the citizens, killing thousands upon millions of the citizens. Mao in China, Hitler in Germany, Stalin in Russia, and the list goes on.

  • Not a solution.

    Take away guns, then knives would become the weapon of choice. Take away knives, then a ball bat would become the weapon of choice. Take away ball bats.... My point being is that no matter what is deemed illegal the criminally insane will find a way to inflict harm or death. Remember, simple box cutters were used on 911, killing over 3000 people. I believe that when gun permit is applied for it should include a psychological evaluation along with MANDATORY training in the use firearms. Some states do not require that when applying for a permit. Just enforce the current laws in place now and get the illegal guns off the streets. My heart goes out to the families of the recent massacre victims but gangland killings of innocents, though the use of illegally acquire guns, far out number these instances. Taking the guns from law-biding citizens won't correct this problem.

  • Who would ever give up their ability to defend themselves?

    We live in a crazy world and I own a few guns for sport and self defense. I don't know any reason that I should be denied the right to protect myself. I know that there are enough guns in the world that you would never get them all so taking mine would put my family and myself in serious danger.

  • Guns don't kill people.

    The gun does not kill a human the man holding the gun does. But a gun isn't the only thing that can kill people. People are smart enough now to be able to build a bomb out of house hold items. Even if we do repeal the amendment people will still smuggle guns like they do with drugs. Guns also help protect people. If you have someone threatening to kill someone or even you. Someone with a gun could hurt or kill this person.

  • Arms are good, firearms are bad

    ARMS ARE GOOD. YOU CAND HOLD STUFF WITH ARMS, AND YOU CAN STRANGLE PEOPLE WITH ARMS. YOU CA NDETONATE BOMBS WITHARMS
    YOU CAN EwiuhauuhhHLAHGUSGHILHLJEKRHGIU WITH ARMS. PLEASE DO NOT VOTE YES AND DENY ME MY BASIC RIGHT TO ARMS! IF YOU DOI WILL FIND YOU, AND KILL YOU... MWAHHAHH HAA HAAAAA

  • Why is this a thing?

    Individuals should be able to do wat they want with their lives as long as they don't hurt others. I understand the debate on increasing background checks to keep prior felons from obtaining weapons but if you are a law abiding citzen you should be able to purchase a gun with the money you earned.

  • Gay gay gay

    Gay's like to suck each other willies and the often like to kiss each others bumholes. Often gays like to frot with each other. Which is where they rub their willies together. Gays are gayer than you think they are. And it makes me sick when i see two gays kiss.

  • Guns don't kill people, laws do

    Law abiding citizens would be left as easy prey to the criminals who obviously won't pay any mind to a law against gun possession or ownership. School shootings will still occur, murder rates will continue to rise, and we'll be back at square one.

    Look at the crime rates for "gun free cities" and dispute this. Please, I'm sure there is a liberal who's consumed enough kool-aid to even attempt it.

    For those who say "back in my day we used fists to settle things"... You didn't deal with religious zealots, haphazardly medicated mentally ill people, and drug addicts so please, enough with the rhetoric.

  • What ifs and repetition

    Lets say... The 2nd amendment IS repealed.
    -would crimes increase due to less guns??
    What would happen if, perhaps, YOUR house goes invaded and you were the unfortunate one to be alone with this guy who had a weapon. Gee, what a surprise. What are you gonna do? You can't call someone, you can't run to your kitchen and grab a knife...A lot of people believe that if they were in this situation they could do a bunch, but it's not like that. Some people freeze in fear, or whatever. It isnt until you actually experience a scenario like that, do you think if in that same situation you'd be alive if you had legally gotten a gun??? Of course the odds of that would be 50/100, the other 50 with that other person it all just depends on skill and luck, i feel as if any gun owner with a mind would obviously train in accuracy so..Of course a criminal wouldn't be able to do that without fear of being caught or something. If you didnt' have the weapon, 20/100 maybe you'd make it out alive. But with the side effects of what? Forced physical contact, anxiety, depression, a wound that could impact your life forever. So, i see a lot of people saying, "efuheuuhfe but thEreS nO oNE oUt thErE to TaKe oUr riGhTS aWAy!!!111!!11" lol okay so just because there might not be someone out there right now doesn't mean there ever will be, even more so, do you think other places who had their rights taken away got some kind of news so they could get ready? No, they didn't. In this world you have to be prepared for the unexpected, hell, you never know, and that's my point. It's better to be overprepared than under prepared. The only fault i see in this amendment is that it shoulder be harder to acquire a gun, of course theres always gonna be someone out there who holds a gun and wants to inflict harm upon others but isn't it better to be prepared against them? Sorry if i rambled and said the same thing over and over again.

  • The 2nd Amendment is not the problem.

    If only there was as much concern about the number of deaths from abortions, tobacco smoking, prescription drugs, etc. Though not acceptable, the number of deaths from gun violence pale in comparison to these events but yet nobody is outraged over them. Get to the issue and don't politicize this.
