    Heh, am I? I'm not having to lie about someone calling the 2nd Amendment fiction like this poster.

    I'm thinking that the ambvilance to want Biden is due to his poor performance and illogical positions on many things. Trump, for many, might be the lesser of two evils for some. Do you think we have great options to choose from?

    that's not what the second amendment says-your phrasing is dishonest

    he's a gun banner. He hates the fact that gun owners started voting against Democrats ever since Democrats pretended that gun control was a better form of crime control than actually punishing the violent criminals who usually support Democrats

    Violent criminal shoots 20 or gets in a fist fight? Which is the better outcome?

    Of course getting to that situation would take a generation of two of gun control and gun usage amelioration. You've been on that gun hooch for a long time.

    if someone intends to shoot 20 people what will he be charged with?
    what is the usual outcome?
    and if the thought of that outcome doesn't deter the shooter, what gun control law will?

    Yeah but he's so bad at it. There a plenty of progressive posters on this forum who could make better arguments than simply cutting out a portion of the amendment and and pretending that it's the whole thing, then lie about the actual comments you make in reply.

    Strictly amateur hour.

    Doesn't change the fact that the second amendment says the right of people to keep and bear arms in "a well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state" shall not be infringed, including swords and bayonets.

    Yep it sure is amateur hour, and you should ask your teacher why you just cut out a small portion of the second amendment and ignore the fact that it says the right of people to keep and bear arms in "a well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state" shall not be infringed, including swords and bayonets.
    And perhaps your teacher can also explain to you why another poster thinks the second amendment is just fiction.

    Gun control laws in other countries do, and unlike in Planet America is why we can't proudly brag about daily mass shootings and regular school massacres and the number of children shot weekly because of the fire-arms industry and NRA wanting to sell more and more combat-style weapons even though there is no longer a need for "a well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state"

    And your teacher can tell you that's because only people keep and bear arms, including swords and bayonets and muskets, in "a well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state" whereas horses only bear arms in "a well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state", and dogs and cats don't keep or bear them.

    I can't imagine why anybody would want to support Trump for any reason. However, I can see how his dog whistle to bring about a 'Unified Reich' would appeal to many on the right.

    I think of it as a law of averages thing. That's why I also like to look at statistics. Back home in Australia you can get your hands on a semi-automatic, it's just a lot more difficult. So somebody in the heat of the moment would probably turn to a knife instead.

    do you think heat of the moment involves going to the gun store and buying a firearm and then shooting someone?

    I support Trump because he's not like every other republican who goes along to get along. He's not a part of the political establishment that screws everything and everyone in order to get along with the rest of the gangsters in Washington DC. That's why the elites in both parties hate him.

    his arguments are proof that he knows that the second amendment prevents the schemes democrats want to foist upon us

    And the post #446 says that the second amendment is fiction.

    Doesn't change the fact that people bear arms in well regulated militias, including swords and bayonets and fire-arms.
