Thread: New gun laws coming in weeks ?

People don't listen to the ban on killing people so why would they give two ™™™™s about the ban on guns. Killers are going to kill. Yeah if you could push a button and make all guns disappear that would be great. Would be nice to push a button and get rid of killers, rapists, robbers, thieves, etc. but that isn't going to happen either.

The text of the amendment is as follows: "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." There's debate over whether they meant for firearms to be available only to a state militia or to all law-abiding citizens, but in practice the courts have gone with the latter. The idea was discussed at length in the 2008 Supreme Court case District of Columbia v. Heller.

Not exactly sure what the laws are considering I do not own a gun. I believe they are similar to laws in the States.
We had an incident a few weeks ago where two intruders entered a home in a robbery attempt. The father and son at home at the time got into an altercation with the intruders and the son was shot and killed. The shooter was his father. As of today, no charges have been laid. The intruders escaped in the confusion.
Here's a link to the actual incident:

It always astounds me how little the anti-gun folk actually know about firearms, their sale/ownership, gun crime statistics, etc. A little education could go a long way.
