9. Repeal the 2nd Amendment.

For those who argue that taking away individuals right to carry a gun unless the individual purchases a gun licenses, which results in a background check is similar to prohibition of drugs or alchohol or denying people the right to vote are a bunch of fools.

There is limitations to the 1st Amendment- cannot yell "Fire" in the Movie Theater.
I oppose prohibition of drugs and alchohol- Drugs and Alchohol does not result in 20 people getting killed at the same time. A drunk addict would pose less of a threat to society if he was not possess a gun.
Taking away an individual(women or minorities) right to vote is foolish because no one got hurt for expressing views that one may not agree with.

What is wrong with having gun laws that prevents guns being in the hand of criminals or people who have serious mental problems.
