Face it fellows we live in a democracy, governed by the rule of law, if you don't like it you can always move on. If the vast majority are for stricter gun laws you will all just have to accept it. There is such things as amendments you know

Another straw man argument-if we were really governed by the rule of law no one would even consider passing such a law. The 2'nd Amendment prohibits it.
In order to do what you want you have to re-interpret the 2'nd Amend to mean something it doesn't- not exactly the definition of "Rule Of Law".

We do NOT live in a Democracy. We live in a Republic. Until you know what form of government we have, you are not qualified to comment on anything.

Canetoad you and your ilk are the one's trying to change what has been for 225 PLUS years! The Real American way of life has proven to be the best in the world! England is more violent that America. And, what are their gun laws?

I will NEVER accept your world!

WRONG,
we in the US live in a representative REPUBLIC,not a pure democracy.defined and protected by the US Constitution.
With individual rights that the majority CANNOT and may NOT override.

a "democracy" is 50% +one telling the other 49% how to live.

Actually knucklehead we live in a Democratic Republic or as some like to think of it a Representative Democracy. If you don't like the 2nd amendment then go through the process to get it changed.

Get real... then YOU can MOVE ON to elsewhere such as your roots !!
After a tragedy like the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Conn., the injection of anything short of seriousness into the subsequent public discourse about guns is touchy. But last week, the National Rifle Association blasted numerous rounds into that particular barrier with NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre's mouth.

The organization's hysteric solution to gun violence in America is to put designated sitting ducks -- er, "armed police officers" -- in every American school. Apparently the secret is now out that such places are "gun-free," and LaPierre says that "(gun-free school zones) tell every insane killer in America...
