I appreciate the states that are trying to do something about the mass shootings, but we need an effective federal response.

That or we just give everybody nukes. /jk

The 2A was put in place so that if needed, The People could be able to keep the Government in check, and to also be able to fight back against Threats, either Foreign or Domestic. Also notice the Declaration of Independence part where (to sum it up), if ANY form of Government goes against The People, then The People then have a Duty and a Right to go against that Government.
People shouldn't shoot the government if they don't like it. You are bordering on threatening terrorism.

So what does that make the Declaration of Independence, then?????

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

Doesn't say anywhere that you can resort to terrorism tho
Tell that to the Founders who wrote it. They wanted to make sure that The People could keep our own Government in Check, not overreaching their Authority, not trying to go against The People, not stripping us of our Rights and Freedoms, and if there were to be any Threats to our Country, Rights, Freedoms, either Foreign, or Domestic, The People could be able to help Fight Back.
Prime example - Ukraine. They had the Right to Weapons, then for some reason, the Government told their People to turn them all in. Then when they were Defenseless, and the People could not Fight Back, Russia showed up. Now look at what Ukraine is doing. Arming The People. Probably would not have had that problem if the People had been able to keep their Arms.

Plus, the 2A of the United States would make the Government think like this - Hey, if we go against The People, they could go against us. Hence why they are now trying to slowly strip us of that Right. Even by now throwing around the excuse, "Rights are not Guaranteed, or Absolute." That sounds like they are saying, "All we have to do is make some BS excuse reason, and we can Violate your Rights however we want, if it fits into our Agenda." Which is pretty much how it is here for both Left and Right. If it fits into their Agenda, of what they are wanting, you are Violating their Right/s. But if it does not, no, that is Illegal, you cannot do that, even if you are doing the exact same thing they are doing, or less. Figure that out.

Exactly. They try to forceably make People turn in our Arms, there would be so many problems. Plus, it has been established and noted, that Criminals prefer that potential Targets/Victims be unable to Fight Back. Not to mention, you do Fight Back, the Criminal, or their Family can screw you over in Court..........so it seems like certain People in Gov are supportive of Criminals, over everyday, Law Abiding People. Figure that out.
Oh, and........

Absolute BS nonsense. First of all, you didn't bat an eyelash when the Republicans lied about Iraq and passed the Patriot Act, stripping americans of privacy.

Secondly, Ukraine is arming its army, not the civilians. so you must be as high as a kite.

Google Search "Ukraine Arming Civilians". Get ready for tons of Results confirming that.

It was VERY obvious the Bush Administration lied about Iraq. Before 9-11, there was a Report about Millions of Government Funds going "Missing", and they were going to have an Investigation. Then 9-11 happened, and you never heard about it again.
Bush Administration also took Money out of Social Security, which was supposed to be returned toward the end of the Trump Administration.......which if I am correct......was never done.
NOTE - There are Conflicting Results on this, and even "Fact-Checkers" claim this never happened, when yet, there are Financial Reports confirming it did.
So yeah, both Left and Right are corrupt, wanting to screw The People over.

"On February 23, 2022, immediately before the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine and a declaration of a state of emergency the Ukrainian parliament approved a law which gives citizens the right to carry weapons outside their homes for the purpose of self defense."
So they WERE armed before the invasion and it changed nothing. Because armed civlians are more of a liability.

Yes, and as I said, you did nothing about it. Now, the left and the right may both be corrupt, but only the right has massively infringed on civil rights and dragged the world into a 20 years war in afghanistan and iraq which it ultimately lost. Oh, and dick cheney is to blame for creating the Islamic state, so there's that. And all the Russian infiltration of the GOP.

They were Arming Civilians due to tensions with Russia. But the People were not all Armed when Russia Invaded. Now, Ukraine is able to hold their own, but it seems the US is pouring so much Money to them when we have People here like Homeless, Elderly, Disabled, especially Vets who could use it.

I was in the Army at that point, and was a Mechanic. But ok, what should we have done?????

Can you look into something? Back in 2009-2011 heard about some Elected Official saying that Soldiers and Vets knew what we were Signing Up for, therefor we should not get anything (Benefits, or anything). Who was that?????Can't believe that Guy through that out there. Big slap in the face to Vets and Soldiers.

Kind of makes you wonder why the Recruiting numbers are down. Plus you got People saying if there were to be a Draft, they would refuse. LOL. Remember a Cadence in Basic.....
Got a Letter in the Mail.......Go to War, or go to Jail.
- Which I think would be a Federal Offense.

Well that has pretty much already worked out for the government wrt: the 4th Amendment (the "war on drugs" has been used as a multitool to strip the peoples' right against unreasonable, warrantless searches to the point that Congress just renewed a law ok-ing warrantless searches right out in the open, and nobody bats an eye).

And it's an ongoing effort, an accelerating one at that, with the 1st Amendment. "Free speech" is practically a dirty word with some Americans today.
