Second Amendment Not a License to Kill

However, I want the pro-gun community to understand that there is a group of us who needs to be confronted and corrected or disavowed. I have been using the term "Second Amendment absolutists" to describe them in previous discussion for quite a few years. An abolutist[sic] thinks the Second Amendment allows anyone to own any gun at any time and at any location they choose.

Ed.: It isn't often that an anti-gunner submits their own anti-gun screed here.

That is exactly what 2A means!

Somehow, procuring a gun and carrying it means killing? I have procured & carried --- however I have not killed anyone-THANKFULLY!!!!!!
You have a right to use as much force as necessary to stop an act of violence against you, just not MORE violence. If you're facing a mortal danger, that means you may use mortal force; a gun if you have it.
That ISN'T a "license" : IT'S THE LAW

Comment by: PHORTO (4/28/2017)
It's interesting that the author differentiates between government confiscation of arms and this incident, when that is EXACTLY what happened.

I agree that a Photoshop of a dead cop with a bullet hole in his head is provocative, and I take his point about "regular guys/gals" just following the law.

But that in no way ameliorates the fact that out of one side off his mouth he decries the suggestion that government confiscation should be met with force, and out the other he says that only when the government does this is force justified.

'Tis a puzzlement....

"license to kill"
james bond was a fictional character that never existed, ask our military men doing hard time in leavenworth for killing terrorists against orders or strict ROE. Crime victimized citizens are prosecuted all the time when state laws (ROE) are not followed to the "t" and they shoot the perp. This writer could never be a cop or combat vet, he'd come home in a box with that passive approach "Don't fire unless fired upon".

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)
