    i don't think any amendment is more hotly contested than the second.

    •  True That. For Me A Gun Is A "Tool" (12+ / 0-)

      If I wanted to kill or harm you I could use a heck of a lot of stuff. I was raised and now live (after 15 years in DC) in a very rural area. Hunting and fishing is a way of life. When I have extra cash laying around I buy a new computer or some gadget. People I know buy a deer stand, another gun, a ATV.

      There is no crime where I live, much less gun violence. And the folks that own said guns are VERY careful and respectful of them. They know I've never fired a gun (although I am pretty good with a bow) and they'd never let me fire one off unless it was under very controlled situations. They'd never let me go hunting with them.

      I am willing to bet they are like 99.9% of gun owners.
