U.S. needs a 28th Amendment

... "Any discussion of limiting access to firearms always triggers an angry recoil by groups and individuals who cite the Second Amendment as sacrosanct."

"Until Congress and state legislators engage in serious discussion of reducing gun violence, let us consider a 28th amendment to the Constitution: 'The right of Americans to go about their lives in peace without fear of victimization by gun violence shall not be abridged.'" ...

Submitter's Note: Starting a civil war is probably not the best way to reduce "gun violence".

The author of this piece seems to opine that governments should "...declare gun-free zones, such as parks, malls and other public spaces."

He seems to forget that governments have already declared murder, burglary, robbery, assault, and a variety of other acts to be prohibited (illegal) and yet they occur with unsurprising regularity.

Another dolt who believes the impossible, that merely issuing more laws will somehow stop evil people from doing evil things.

I'll bet he's against long (life without parole) prison sentences and the death penalty, which are proven to reduce repeat offenses by criminals.

No means to place this where it belongs (no comments section), so I'll put it HERE.

Take yer amendment and stick it up yer @$$.

"The right there specified is that of 'bearing arms for a lawful purpose.' This is not a right granted by the Constitution. Neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence." - U S v. CRUIKSHANK, 92 U.S. 542 (1875) 92 U.S. 542

These morons who advocate repealing the 2nd amendment haven't given any serious logical thought to the long-term consequences. Disarming the populace really worked well in England and Australia(sarcasm). And look at Chicago with the toughest gun control laws in the US, and the highest murder rate. First of all we need real professional leadership in Washington DC instead of a muslim anti-American who does nothing to help the country, instead he foments hate, racism, and discontent.

I would suggest that the writer move to formally Great Britain. Then he only needs to worry about violent daytime robberies and punks with knives that can kill you just as dead.

Remember that if guns were eliminated by some magic, then bats and knifes would become the apex weapons. I for one am past my prime and would not fare well in a close combat fight. I need a gun for my protection.

Evil will flourish with or without guns. This individual should consider the reality of the current situation instead of wishing for something that can't work.

A state may not impose a charge for the enjoyment of a right granted by the federal constitution... The power to impose a license tax on the exercise of these freedoms is indeed as potent as the power of censorship which this Court has repeatedly struck down... a person cannot be compelled 'to purchase, through a license fee or a license tax, the privilege freely granted by the constitution.' —MURDOCK V. PENNSYLVANIA 319 US 105 (1942)
