  •  The 2nd Amendment (14+ / 0-)

    is just that - an amendment. The Constitution wasn't carved in stone. It's meant to work as a living document that can be changed as our culture changes - giving women the right to vote and people of all races equal opportunities, for instance.

    Doesn't surprise me that people who tend toward literal interpretations of the Bible while cherry-picking which passages make the most sense for their current cause also treat the Constitution like scripture and focus so intently and disturbingly on the 2nd Amendment.

    Agree that the similarity in all these shootings is access to  weapons - and in most cases, weapons that no individual has any reason to own.

    There needs to be more education and around responsible gun ownership for those who do own guns. Look at the accidental deaths, in some cases caused by kids too young to know what they were doing.
