Good point Jim. It's rare that someone is that disturbed and there are no warning signs.

The Second Amendment has been the thorn in the side of gun control advocates and will continue to be until it is repealed. Those who say that can't happen are wrong. All it takes is a majority sentiment in enough states to favor and trust in government's superior wisdom and its faithfulness to always do what is "best" for the American people. The attempt by those who believe that an all powerful Progressive Administrative State ("the government" for those who's eyes glaze over and brain gets fogged by longer unfamiliar abstract titles) knows best and will do the best have been attempting to do just that--to gain favor for "current" government needing unhindered power to solve "current" problems. Emotional pleas over heart wrenching massacres as well as "common sense" arguments that old "rights" don't apply to new problems are constantly plied and convince more people, who are educated in such ways, over time.

Opinions and articles like these chip away at notions of inalienable rights and will most likely, eventually, lead the way to not only the repeal of the Second Amendment, but the total replacement of the Constitution with some new document. You can make your own guess what that document would say. No doubt, you will have faith that it will say good things.:

And Those who dont own gun do we not have inalienable right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” Via United States Declaration of Independence not be shot by 2a guys stolen guns .. every ones a law abiding citizen until they commit a crime and are Convicted
You have the right to own a gun to protect yourself. But you don't have the right to deny others owning a gun to protect themselves from government as well as from those who do own guns. But you do not have the right to be free of calamity. You don't have the right not to be blown away by a tornado. You may do all the wise things that may prevent that from occurring, but you don't have a right against it happening. We can do whatever we can, so long as it doesn't infringe other's rights, to protect ourselves from being shot by a criminal who doesn't respect our right to life, and government has the responsibility to prosecute those who infringe on our rights.

But when government restricts, or denies rights, in order to prevent a loss of rights, that is not only a contradiction, it is tyranny. And it results from that notion that rights are not merely TO something, but also FROM something. A right TO something can be unalienable. A right FROM something can only be provided by government. And when rights FROM override rights TO, then government controls and owns the giving of all rights. None are then unalienable.

If this happens involving 2a or 14a or 1st a
The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, Thats how it works
its doubtful to ever happen.. but if I listen to you its already has happen why say something that is untrue I can go buy a gun today why because its my right hasn't been taken as you keep suggesting !

It would have seemed impossible to happen when the Constitution was drafted and the Second Amendment was added. It is not deemed so impossible now. The Constitution has been amended 27 times, 17 times after the first 10.

I don't think the Framers would have thought it was possible to pass an amendment such as the 18th which prohibited the manufacture, sale, or transportation of alcoholic beverages. But alcohol consumption was characterized and demagogued (by Progressives) as a crisis which was a danger to the country. So enough bad press and political ranting changed the national sentiment to have enough votes for ratification.

And, enough votes were able to be garnered for the repeal the 18th Amendment with the 21st Amendment.

The same type of demagoguery and anti-gun press has been steadily but slowly, mounting (by Progressives) which, if all else fails to "control the epidemic of gun violence" as the mantra goes, there may come a tipping point in opinion which could provide the necessary votes for a new amendment which could repeal the Second.

I don't know if that is as unlikely as most think.

Are you the one being untrue here, or did you merely misread what I said.? When did I say it already happened?
