47. Nobody (except you) said guns are the solution. The 2nd isn't about SOLUTIONS it is about rights.
Edited on Mon Jun-28-10 10:17 AM by Statistical
The solution to substantially reduced crime would be a Police State.
The solution to higher rate of convictions would be forced confessions.
The solution to more easily passing legislation would be govt control of media and limits on free expression, dissent, protesting.
The solution to no religion friction would be a state religion and early age indoctrination.

Rights aren't about solutions. Rights are about rights. I have a RIGHT (not a desire, not a need, not a wish) to keep and bear arms just as much as you have right to never be forced to testify against yourself.
