This has been an interesting, if irrelevan discussion. The right to defend oneself is a basic human right. It is a natural right. The Second Amendment, however, while it codified that right, is about more than that. The right to bear arm is the right to be free. Arms are used for self defense, but they are also for the defense of the whole people from tyranny. Many of the posts here make me wonder if the posters really want to live free. Freedom may be dangerous; but some of us think it worth it.

Liberty is not for the weak of heart or mind.

I concur and wish those who do not understand living free would go to one of the other countries where they can live under the thumb of the government. I'll even buy a few tickets...as long as they never come back here.

"The right to defend oneself is a basic human right"

You have not been paying attention. See "District of Columbia v. Heller" -- Supreme Court. The Supreme Court upheld -- in a closely split vote -- what you consider a "basic human right". That means that 4 Supreme Court justices do NOT believe that you have the right to defend yourself (Heller's primary contention).

Something as basic as self preservation will soon be taken from you. Enjoy.

Buzz Kill. So you're implying I should just roll over, grab my ankles and rejoice that a minority of the Supreme Court are f'd up? How'd the majority vote?

So? What exactly IS your point? That the courts decide my God given rights. Or are you simply one of the lemmings of our society conditioned like a Pavlov dog to roll over, play dead, OBEY whenever shills on the Courts put on the appearance of legitimacy and via their bogus rulings PROMPT you and those like you to comply not too unlike dogs in a Pavlov experiment that were conditioned to slobber whenever they heard a dinner bell? Ever hear of BAD LAWS, BAD RULINGS and bogus social performances through appointed shills? If ever law on the books were ALWAYS valid then women still would not be allowed to vote, Plantations with slaves would still exist. Alcohol would still be illegal as would be pot. The courts have been STACKED

Those four evidently don't think the Declaration of Independence important.

Via The Blaze: Ben Swann, a local Fox anchor for WXIX-TV in Cincinnati, offered up a fascinating fact-check of some of the stats that the British CNN host has been using.

 

“In the UK, there are 2,034 violent crimes per 100,000 people...the U.S. has a violent crime rate of 466 crimes per 100,000 residents."
