The 2nd Amendment Has No Exception For Mentally Ill, Angry Assholes

So pick out some plots in the graveyard for you, and your family.

There may never be anything done about how easy it is for nut jobs to get as much firepower as they want, to kill as many as they want, when they finally go off.

This iz Ammerika.

Just like Sharon Angle said, some folks need to use their 2nd Amendment remedies.......

On you, and your family.

Time to repeal the 2nd Amendment, and replace it with something that makes it impossible for the unstable, in any way to get within 100 miles of a gun.

2. The Free Speech Clause has no exception for yelling "Fire!" in a crowded theater.

The Free Exercise Clause has no exception for human sacrifice or polygamy.

But courts apply various tests to create exceptions to various amendments.

I'd love to know how to get enough votes in Congress to repeal the second, let alone enough votes to ratify. Because then, Citizens' United would be no problem.

3. It also ties the right to guns to the ability to maintain a well ordered militia whose goal is the

security of the state. As I read it, second amendment is about the military and members of the military and it really has nothing to do with the shit that goes on in this country these days.
