The second amendment says they have a right to bear arms, not specifically guns.  If a right to bear arms covers everything then does every US citizen have a right to own a nuclear weapon?  No, because that would be dangerous and ridiculous.

They won't tighten gun control laws any time soon, the Republican party has enough power to block it, and the NRA are too rich.

That's horrendous.  Do they not realise that allowing more people to have guns = more people getting killed or injured.  Even those who carry a gun because they are afraid of being attacked and have no intention of actually using it, can panic and pull the trigger.

I wonder how many people in the US are living with the guilt of accidentally shooting someone?

an interesting snippet i found today, make of it what you will....
 
''The father of Newtown Connecticut accused school shooter Adam Lanza is Peter Lanza who is a VP and Tax Director at GE Financial (one of the many corporations owned and controlled by the CENTRAL (FED) BANKERS). The father of Aurora Colorado Batman movie theater accused shooter James Holmes is Robert Holmes, the lead fraud scientist for the credit score company FICO which works with all major banks, and is directly connected to the function of London Inter-Bank Offered Rate.. (LIBOR).''

If central (fed) bankers means the Federal Reserve then it's the US Central Bank which conducts monetary policy and is also part of the US bank regulation system. GE Capital is an arm of GE, formerly General Electric.   GE Capital has about 50000 staff worldwide but isn't a bank, so isn't regulated by the Fed.  GE makes trains, aircraft engines, medical technology and light bulbs for which GE Capital will provide finance.  Perhaps not for the light bulbs.


FICO is involved with credit analysis, scoring and payment fraud systems, the ones that analyse payment patterns. Its not a ratings agency but even if it were I doubt it has the smallest involvement with LIBOR.  I do know more about LIBOR than any journalist, and most bankers and can bore at length.


This sounds like complete horseshit to me.
Being certain just means you haven't got all the facts
