    The AWB can't even come to a vote, but you think you have the support to change an amendment in the Bill of Rights?!?
    Good luck with that.

    "Individual liberties"
    You find liberties to be RW?!? I think homosexuals, women whom support abortion, everyone whom believes warrantless wiretaps to be unacceptable would disagree.

    "How about my liberty to not have chunks of metal fired at high speed into valuable organs?"
    Thus the crimes of murder, attempted murder, assault, etc.

    " Again, the research shows that when there are fewer guns, the completed suicide rate goes down. "
    The real world & 33 nations disagree.
     But have it your way...if you think that owning a gun would lead to an unintentional suicide, then don't own a gun, & allow others to make the same choice.
    Neat how freedom works, innit?

    "silly meaningless things like "you can't take guns because freedom""
    I don't find individual freedom written in the Bill of Rights, to be either 'silly' nor 'meaningless'.
    It is telling that you do.

    Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.
