First of all, I have to tell you up front that I'm a handgun owner and one that really enjoys target shooting and punching holes in old tin cans. I'm also a dyed in the wool progressive, which is probably an oxymoron; guns and a liberal, what a combination.
I stopped hunting a long time ago as I found that my love of animals was stronger than my blood lust. I also am realistic enough to know that the 2nd Amendment is not going to be discarded...but within that short amendment lie two words that the right wing ignores, and probably will wish were never inserted in the sentence...those words are "well regulated". Voila!
My God, isn't it ironic that the solution to assault weapon ownership, 30 round magazines, and availability of firearms is found within the Amendment itself?
Ponder those two words..."well regulated"
