It's Time To Actually Regulate Murder Weapons
For those capable of reading even a single, intact and complete sentence from our Constitution, the Second Amendment says this:
"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
What we have in America today does not even resemble a "well regulated militia." Instead what we have are seemingly endless supplies of lone wolf lunatics senselessly murdering our family members again and again.
Our founders intended arms bearing as a collective right, for the protection of the community, NOT an individual right to be claimed by every mentally ill criminal. And that was during a time when we had no systematic police forces or even much of a national army.
And yet Congress, perpetually beholden to the murder weapons manufacturers of America, adamantly refuses to even put in place even reasonable regulation of who can acquire NEW deadly weapons, entirely apart from those already sold to people who should not have them.
In particular, any nutcase can walk into a free for all gun show and walk out with a family member grabber. So-called "unlicensed private sellers" can do anything they damn well please.
There isn't another deadly anything in this country as unregulated and with so many gaping loopholes as this.
The actual word in our Constitution is "regulated," and it's time we did something meaningful about it, starting with comprehensive instant background checks. And no gun transfers except through strictly regulated dealers, just like we do for a bottle of beer.
You cannot even drive a car without a license. Why should gun ownership be any less regulated?
