Yes, we need the 2nd amendment. [View all]

Guns are still very useful tools for many people. Poor people, especially poor rural people, need a gun in order to put food on their table. Lots of people also need a gun in order to protect themselves and their families.

Do they need an AR-15 with a high capacity magazine, no. But they do need a gun. There is nothing wrong with that.

So, somewhere between an outright ban on all guns, and those who want more and more guns for everybody, there is room for compromise, for the prospect of sane, sensible gun control.
