  •  We need to amend the Second Amendment (5+ / 0-)

    so that it explicitly allows gun control.

    This nonsense has to stop.  We have to stop it.

    And we have to do it now.

    •  We need to define (10+ / 0-)

      the modern equivalent to an 18th century Militia.

      You want to own a Second Amendment protected firearm? Join the Army. Learn how to own it safely. Learn how to keep it away from your children. Hone your marksmanship skills.

      The NRA conveniently avoids printing everything before the first comma.

      •  The very minimum should be (4+ / 0-)

        Mandatory gun use and safety classes which would be prerequisite for licensing which would be necessary for gun ownership. And I'm not talking about a two hour bullshit class. I mean a few weeks or months of training, including history and graphic video. On top of that, gun safes should be required for every home with a gun. Period. Every person who drives a car in this country has to be licensed and to attend some training class. Automobiles can be used as weapons but their primary use is transportation. We don't we require licensing for operators of machinery whose primary use is killing?

      •  In Switzerland, all males 19-30 (1+ / 0-)

        years old are drafted into canton militias and are issued an assault weapon by the military.  However, each militia member must go through three months of training  by the Swiss army, be proven fit (mentally and physically) for militia duty, and may not carry the weapon outside the home except to attend shooting competitions (a national sport) or in case the military is called up to defend against the country's invasion.  

        Although the information is now about 10 years old, here is a rundown of Swiss gun control information.

        •  Oh? (0+ / 0-)
          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.
