People consider homicide to be such a little thing. Even if it is in defence, it is still ending another human being life. I am not saying that the gun man didn't deserve to die. He deserves to rot in hell. But even if he does deserve to die, ending another humans life isn't the easiest thing (for a mentally stable person) to do. If people had concealed weapons, that doesn't mean they would use them.

As hard as it is to ammend the constitution, it is improbable that Congress will bother trying.
It is actually harder to modify the Bill of Rights according to my research.
From a legal standpoint, it is possible to ammend the Constitution to null the second ammendment with another ammendment.
This would of course cause a political backlash.
My own personal experience, as a Southerner, shows that many people are willing to die for the right to keep their guns.
Many people were also upset enough by the recent presidential election that some of them began petitioning to secede from the Union.
Think of the backlash that would occur if guns were outlawed for the civilian population.
I don't know about you guys, but I personally would prefer to avoid a second Civil War.

Hey guys, I'm new here. I just thought I would come to this part of the forum to get to know a few people. So what are your names?

Gold, just because you want the DCC to be your personal "lulz" chatroom, doesn't mean a topic is too serious for it.

I think what he is saying is that we have a perfectly good discussion board for things like this, which Honestly, could use all the activity it can get

Seems like the topic indeed is too serious.

You guys make me happy.

I seriously wasn't expecting to come back to 2 pages of serious discussion, haha. I agree with Gold, we should switch the topic though, cause it's pretty depressing. Either way you look at an issue like that, it boils down to people pointing the fingers at why something happened. I don't think more gun control would help, because I think the point of the second amendment, is so that when something like this happens, you wouldn't need to wait for the police to arrive 15/20 minutes later; civilians would be able to handle themselves. The way I see it, this wasn't some crazy horrible monster who did these things. This was a 20-year old kid like us, who was probably really depressed and frustrated with the world. He obviously saw no point to living anymore and decided to do what he did. I don't think we should be attacking the offender as much as we do, because in my eyes, they are really just another victim. I mean, seriously, he killed his own mother. If that isn't an indication of how much someone resents ever being alive, I don't know what is. In my mind, the area we should be focusing on is mental health, and not really for specific people, but for the general population.

Oh, and if you guys want something else to talk about, how about this new remix of the Red/Lance Battle Theme from GSC that I made?

The republicans wouldn't pass it. DX It's have top go by the Supreme Court which also have very very very biased members. I'm a southerner too. :( Honestly, the south are seriously idiots. Basically a good term would be 'cry babies' because they lost and now they want to quit. -_- Texas is probably the worst of them (not all Texans are bad, just those people that do those things that I'm to lazy to explain). Gun Control =/= Taking away all guns. Even though I'd be okay with no guns anywhere ever again. As Kenny said, guns are bad any way you put it.

It'd be pretty hard to have a Civil War without guns. ;D

Well if there were no guns, you really wouldn't NEED concealed weapons...You can really over come knives by hand, as well as strangulation or something non-weapon related can be stopped easily as well if they don't have a gun.

If we didn't kill people with guns, we'd do it with much more violent and painful methods. As hard as it is to accept, violence is part of life. We're both creative and destructive by nature. Forcing people not to be violent doesn't work. Maybe if the media wasn't so violent, our culture wouldn't be either.
