    of the Second Amendment doesn't necessarily mean all guns would be banned. After all, there is no Second Amendment in Canada and plenty of folks there have guns. However, absent the Second, regulation of firearms would possible.

      with the Second as well if we had politicians with guts.

      An unsuccessful shoe bomb attack resulted in nine years of inconvenience for every flier in the country. It would be nice to think [this diabolical act] might lead to some similar inconveniences. --mrblifil

      The first words of the 2nd amendment are "A well regulated". Gun nuts want us to forget that, but we mustn't. We can have sane laws without repealing any part of the constitution.

      there are very few licenses granted for handguns ( around 300 in all of Canada not counting armoured car guards and similar positions) assault weapons are banned along with high capacity magazines.  Most people don't have guns and the majority of those that do own long guns for hunting.  It's true, we don't have anything like the 2nd Amendment and don't want one.

      •  A Canadian 2nd amendment (0+ / 0-)

        If Canada had the 2nd amendment, you could still have the same, utterly reasonable regulations that your federal and provincial governments have in place now. I believe our 2nd amendment is meant to allow for the regulation of firearms, up to and including what our northern neighbors have. The problem isn't the amendment. The problem is the idiots here in the US who chose to interpret it so as to allow civilian lunatics to be better armed than the average infantryman in Afghanistan.
