This opens up a can of worms as well.
A lot of people who shoot up places are insane or pretty close to it. They are not going to care in the end who has a gun or not. For example the Alexis shooting. Dude went into his place of work where he KNEW there were security guards who has handguns and shot people anyway including them. And he seemed like a pretty normal person on his outer shell.
I think the last thing we need is someone shooting up a public place then a civilian getting in a shoot out with him in open public.
It's just more chaos to me and not more order.
When it's all said and done, humans have been killing themselves for years and years. It's never going to be stopped and it can only be controlled to a certain people or prevented. I personally feel giving ever dick, larry and moe that can pass background checks and get one legally isn't the answer.
Personally I agree with you, but how do you deal with the fact that the 2nd amendment exists? Do you not agree with me the only way to legally limit guns is to amend the constitution?
Personally I dont want us to start picking and choosing which amendments to the constitution we follow. That could be a disaster. Most of the 27 amendments are great. It would be a tragedy if we set a precedent where we started to ignore the intent of the amendments. (I realize this is already happening, but its something I wish would stop)
what if someone wanted to weaken the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 13th, 14th, or 19th amendments?
