"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." The Constitution is quite clearly referring to military weapons. Shouldn't all you constitutional purists be complaining about laws that ban such weapons? Shouldn't we all be allowed to own machine guns, tanks, long-range artillery, weaponized anthrax, tactical nukes and so on? If not, why not? The Constitution was framed at a particular point in history, not brought down from the mountain engraved on tablets of stone. It was not designed to make it easy for psychos to kill kids, and if that's the effect it's having, it needs to be revisited.

It seems to me that a good guy in a tank standing between the bad guy and some innocent school children makes a compelling argument FOR being armed.

But of course the bad guy might also have a tank. Or artillery.

The only logical solution is for every school to be issued with nuclear weapons. The balance of terror worked in the Cold War, and it can work to keep our schools safe today!

The constitution has an amendment process to change it. You want to ban personal weapon ownership get an amendment passed.

If a simple law by congress or state Gov could change the constitution then no constitutional protection exists for ANYTHING.

Think blacks and whites should be able to marry? it is the Constitutional protections that say they can. If it was just law then the laws in VA in the 1960s that said they couldnt would still be the law.

The Supreme Court obviously disagrees with you
On Christmas Eve, seven people were shot in the city of Chicago. The media made little mention of the shootings, since they're now routine in Chicago -- the city has seen some 500 shootings in 2012 alone. The vast majority of the shooters are black, and the vast majority of the victims are black. Many of the victims are under the age of 18: Anton Sanders, 15, shot on Jan. 20; Deshun Winfert, 15, shot on Feb. 5; Damion Rolle, 14, shot on Feb. 21; George Howard and Albert Guyton, both 15, shot on Feb. 27 and Feb. 28; the list...
