Where do you stand? My position is that the Second Amendment created during the days of ball and powder is in badly need of an update. That as it stands today, the 2A is the single largest reason for the US’s relatively high rates of gun injury, violence, and death. That the idea that every citizen regardless of their stability or psychological profile deserves to have a gun is proven by daily events to be fundamentally flawed. In practically all mass shooting events, we are faced with formerly law abiding citizens who decide to load up and for whatever the reason, a general grievance or unhappiness, or mad at the world, based on a psycho whim, kill as many people/strangers as they can. The real problem seems to be mental illness and the willingness to identifying those people who have no business being allowed to be gun owners, along with the lack of willingness by the gun lobby to be inconvienenced by effective gun regulations. Lots of excuse making and resistance to inconvienent regulation frequently verbalized as not one more inch. The secondary issues is elevating guns to idolatry status and the apparent degredation of the sanctity of human life in our society. Someone cuts you off in traffic, or does not move fast enough when the light turns green, get your gun out and teach those bastards a lesson! We are clearly in a situation of our own making and collectively we need to decide how much damage caused by guns is too much and actually do something effective about it.
