you guys are all missing the point. she says that the second amendment gives us the right to bear arms, and continues to observe that that is not actually entirely the case. we have the right to bear arms unless you walk onto Government property such as public schools, post offices ect. i think that she means that this is unconstitutional, NOT that everyone with a gun is well trained. im sure that she knows that not everyone that has or carries a gun can sign there name with it at 50 yards, and not everyone is capable of gaining that particular level of skill. I think that the point of her letter was to state a fact that the second amendment says we can bear arms, but that we are not actually allowed to in many instances, and she offers a very reasonable solution, making it harder to get a liscence or gun. but thats not the solution. the fact of the matter is bad guys will get guns or weapons regardless of the law. it has actually been tested in lots of countries (look at places like mexico, gun violence is out the roof. and they're illegal) the best solution (and its a proven one to) is to issue guns and/or weapons and train everyone to use them. if you want to kill someone and you have a gun where are you going to go, a school? or a poloce station? its a fact. training everyone to use weapons reduces crime because then the bad guys who want to kill people either, think better of it because they know everyone has a gun, or they are stopped very quickly because everyone has a gun. more laws only makes more criminals. more knowledge and skill on a mass scale makes a safer environment because everyone knows how to defend themselves.Mar 6, 2012
