In response to ambitious Democratic plans to proceed with gun control measures, Second Amendment supporters have mobilized throughout the state, with individual jurisdictions declaring themselves to be "sanctuaries" for Second Amendment rights.

But with the legislature in session, the conflict is being concentrated in the Virginia State Capitol in Richmond

And gun rights supporters made it clear they aren't backing down.

Communists are seething mad because they want to be able to determine who lives and dies based on their definition of political wrongthought.

Am hoping someone grabs the lily white (R)tarded racist redneck known as comrade Boazo's guns from him. The less RussiaPublicians with guns the better.

#4 | Posted by aborted_monson This seems to be above your intellect, The right to defend one's life is not granted by a government, it is an inalienable human right. That has meant having firearms sense the founding. We started a revolution because of the British governments' attempt to disarm the inhabitants of this country.

This entire issue is dealt with quite successfully with a question. Do you trust the government now or in the future to not take your life, liberty (freedoms ) and possessions by force ? If the

answer is "yes" then I don't know what to tell you other than a history book may be something you want to look into soon.

have a nice day !

#8 | Posted by rhet Let us remember the leading cause of violent death in the last century was governments murdering their own citizens, in excess of 1000 million individuals. I reject the possession of "American Exceptionalism". Tyranny is the common state of mankind. It takes effort and vigilance to prevent it.

"Tyranny is the common state of mankind. It takes effort and vigilance to prevent it."

It takes effort and vigilance.
It does not take guns or the Second Amendment.
In fact, the major impact of the Second Amendment for millions of Americans is a tyranny of poverty and lawlessness in the poor parts of our cities.
But it overwhelmingly impacts blacks, and most gun lovers don't mind. Most gun lovers think it's a bonus when the trash takes itself out. Just ask them, they'll tell you.
Most Americans who get shot get shot by themselves, with their own gun. Gun lovers don't see anything wrong with that either. Plus, it's an excuse to mock the weak. Like I said, they don't mind when the trash takes itself out.

#11 | Posted by snoofy Yep, most gun homicides are suicides. But if the individual did not have a gun, pills or a rope would do the same task. Now what you ignore, black people in black neighborhoods have guns at home. Including many women. I guess you would prefer that they had no defense from street trash kicking in their door at 3:00 AM. The police will be there in time to investigate their murder.

#11 | Posted by snoofy, Like I said, they don't mind when the trash takes itself out. A majority of murders in this country are committed by 3.5% of the population, black men between 16 and 30. Homicide is the leading cause of death for young black men. 95% of the perpetrators are other young black men.

That's not really true, because gun suicides are more successful than pill suicides.

Also you can call 911 after you overdose on pills and change your mind. Not so much after you blast yourself in the head or chest with a gun.

And why is that any business of yours? I've heard you express the opinion that woman's body is hers to do with as she wants, so clearly if a woman wants to commit suicide by whatever means, you wouldn't care.

But don't men have the same right to with their bodies what they want?

"Homicide is the leading cause of death for young black men."

That alone is sufficient reason to ban guns.

But hey, I understand most people either don't mind that homicide is the leading cause of death for young black men, or won't acknowledge the connection to guns. Which kind of person are you? Maybe a little of both. I expect you'd say, if we banned guns they'd just use rope and knives to the same effect. Even as the fact that they choose guns shows they think guns are the right tool for the job.

1. That issue is not in play.
2. I never took you as pro suicide.

Scrapping a Constitutional amendment for a very small demographic is worth it?

Wow.

Can I play, too? Can I choose a small demographic and demand the Constitution be modified to suit them?

"1. That issue is not in play."

So IOW, a woman's body is hers to do with as she wants unless snoofy says otherwise?

". I never took you as pro suicide.

I, unlike you, think a person's body is theirs to do with what they want. That doesn't make me pro suicide, just as the same sentiment does not make a person pro abortion.

Except for the "unless" you've got it right.

Yes, gun control is an evil thing white people do while saying it's for everybody's own good. It's just the fast track to mass incarceration of blacks.
