Common Sense & The 2nd Amendment

When he who was socially ill picked-up an assault weapon & killed twenty children in an elementary school, the right to bare firearms came into conflict with the right to life & the pursuit of happiness in the United States.

This happened in Connecticut & now, four months later, that state has the strictest gun laws in the nation.  Connecticut’s consequential legislative action in regards to the massacre of its school children is an enactment of that part of the 2nd Amendment about a “well regulated militia.”  A well regulated militia is the purpose of the right to bare firearms, according to the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.  The leaders of the National Rifle Association (NRA) and others have expanded the meaning of this amendment in good & bad ways.  However, these folks must realize, when twenty 6-year-old citizens are massacred by one of our less responsible gun-toting citizens, compromises are going to have to be made.  One of the compromises that must be worked-out is a wee bit more gun regulation ~ enforced gun regulation.  If certain senators and representatives in Washington D.C. do not yield to this common sense ~ let’s get rid of them.  Let’s vote them into oblivion no later than 2014.
