I can assure you that the Federal government will NEVER be able to repeal the 2nd amendment. If they ever tried it would spark a revolution in this country. care to know how many people were murdered with cars last year? Should we take everyone's car away because it can be used to kill people? guess what the number one murder weapon is? Bare hands! #2 are knives, #3 is poison.
Guns do not kill, people kill. You can not protect society from people who want to kill, they will find a way but we can try to protect ourselves. If guns were banned only the police, military and criminals would have them. A criminal doesn't care what the law is, a gun is a tool of their trade and they will get one illegally just like they do drugs. care to have an underground gun market instead of one regulated by the ATF and states? Drugs are illegal, how are we doing in stopping the manufacture, sale and use of drugs?

Really? Where did you find that statistic or did you just pull it outta your #$%$? The one I found (from US census data) on allcountries_dot_org for the period 1980 to 1998 shows the breakdown as

Comparing cars and guns is wrong and you know it. Cars are not used as wepons, Guns are! Sadly unless some one suffers the loss themselves its just sombody elses pain. Its time to ban automatic wepons. They have no purpose or use in our society.
Yes, abummer wants to repeal the 2nd Amendment, but he can always find a way to kill the gun industry with taxes and regulation. I'd better hurry up and get that nice little AR-15 I have my eye on as protection against people rioting in the streets soon.
This is all crazy. Gun sales the last few years have been exploding. We have a generation that has been brought up on video games that are very violent and the more you kill in the game the more you win. Very scary society we live in at this time. We really need to change the entertainment society is being brought up on . GLTA
