    Saying this does not make it true. Nor is the alternative any more acceptable, or reasonable: that we allow any moron who thinks he needs a pile of guns to have them.

    Clearly, we are intelligent enough to set up a system of oversight that would strike a balance between our right to have guns and our need to regulate those who have them for our own safety.

    That would be a terrible idea. We are far to huge a country for that sort of thing to make any sense, now. Plus, we already have a standing army, so there is no need for a 'militia'. And having one would only encourage violence and chaos every time the government made a law that some group or other doesn't like.

    We have a "militia", it's called the U.S. military. It is comprised our own husbands, wives, sons, and daughters. It will not turn against us and if the government ever dares to command it to do so, I believe it would then turn on the government. As long a WE fill the ranks of the military, and not a bunch of paid criminals or mercenaries, we are safe from that threat.

    I think young people doing a few years of civil service would be a great idea … in exchange for higher education, let's say. I don't think it necessitates militarism, however. Although, anyone who wanted to join the military should be welcomed, so long as they are able.

    There is nothing in the second amendment which says the government may not make laws controlling guns for safety .
    This is NOT the same thing as making guns illegal and confiscating them .
    Such laws make sense and are absolutely essential . What's all the fuss about ?
    Number of guns confiscated by the Obama administration so far :
    ZERO. Zip. Nada . Bupkis . Not a single one . Why all the paranoid hysteria ?

    You're saying that no federal agencies confiscated guns in 7 years ?

    How many people who own guns in America have had their homes invaded by government agents and their guns confiscated ? NONE .
    We would have heard about this by now , and people would have complained bitterly . But this has yet to happen . Nor will it .

    Please cite incidents of the government confiscating guns under Obama. If this had happened, it would have been news .
    Obama is NOT a "tyrant" and he's not aiming to impose "communism" on America by confiscating guns .
    Conservatives SHOULD however, be VERY afraid of the sinister agenda of the Republican (Repugnican ) party - taking their medicare and social security away . Denying them medical care f they need it .
    It won't be pretty if the GOP gets its way .
