Why should enforcing the law be barter for stomping on a primary constitutional right?
I understand what you’re saying and I agree with you. The amendment needs not discussion at all amongst rational people.
However, we don’t deal with rational people; we deal with people who have an agenda focused at utlimate, total control of our lives, and they just happen to have currently seized on gun control again.
My response to their blather and control quests is to confuse the issue. Tie them up in new laws, rules, regulations in state courts, take their minds off the “Newtown Prize” and to defend something they think they’ve already won. Meanwhile ALL representatives on the conservative side refusing to even discuss the merits or demerits of the Second Amendment.
