    It appears to me that the right wing and the NRA have never read the Second Amendment, yet they cling to it as if it were life itself. The first four words of the Second Amendment are "A well regulated Militia." The closest thing we have to that today is the National Guard. The members of the National Guard are armed and well-regulated. Therefore, the untrained citizenry of this country does NOT need to be. How many more Columbines, Newtowns, and Auroras do we need before  everyone gets this very simple concept? It's absolutely appalling to me that members of our armed services and police departments have to go through rigorous training with their weapons, yet we permit any nutjob to go to the corner gun store and buy an automatic or semi-automatic weapon to wipe out innocent school children. No, I challenge any of the pro-gun morons out there on this point. Sorry, you guys lose!!

      But if they really believe in the 'second amendment' they certainly as civilians can join, of which most are war lovin, so don't mind sending their states Guard into invasions and occupations and especially don't feel the need to pay for same and especially the results of, but not fightin so called patriots!!!
