Common sense calls for repeal of Second Amendment | Local News | The Seattle Times

Regulation seems reasonable, but it can’t fight against the gun-lobby tide and win. We need to address gun violence at the root by taking away the appearance of mythic sanction the Second Amendment gives.

The founders struggled to get things right, but they knew what we’ve forgotten, that perfection wasn’t possible. They ditched our first Constitution, the Articles of Confederation and started over, then they ensured that the new document would be open to change in the form of amendments.

We ought to respect and honor the document, but realize it is not the last word, that democracy is a living, growing thing that the living must tend. And we must be on guard against people who abuse our reverence for the Constitution for their own political reasons.

We should repeal the Second Amendment.

Yeah, we wouldn’t want those uppity slaves to have guns.  Which was the impetus behind almost all the early attempts to infringe on, or nullify, the Second Amendment…as far as black people were concerned.

You sniveling, gullible, ignorant tool.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. …They ditched our first Constitution, the Articles of Confederation and started over…

    My, my – nothing quite like beginning with incorrect, ignorant and arrogant horseshit, then proceeding to pile a lot more of the same on top…

    To begin with – although the Articles Of Confederation, as written in 1776-77 and ratified in 1781, served in place of an actual Constitution, they were, recognizably, an emergency, stop-gap (and rather weak) substitute, not an actual Constitution. The Founders knew that, and fully recognized the Articles’ weaknesses – but, they had a revolution to run, right now; writing an actual, comprehensive Constitution had to wait for a bit. See, there were these British troops to deal with, and all…

    Second – the Founders didn’t “start over”, nor did they “ditch” the Articles, when they came together and wrote the actual Constitution – rather, they used the Articles as the starting-point, and composed what was needed to fully establish and formalize the Republic, building the Constitution on the base of the Articles and the general principles they embodied. They were putting together a whole new form of government, after all – they had to first figure out exactly where they wanted to get to, and then the most expedient and comprehensive means to get there, long-term. Meanwhile, the Articles continued to give them the necessary breathing-room to sort everything out.

    Properly understanding all that is, of course, vital to the clear comprehension of the basic need that arose for the first ten Amendments, what came to be known popularly as the Bill Of Rights – and, eventually, for the other Amendments that were added over the past couple of centuries – plus the further comprehension that the basic freedoms – the natural rights – that are explicitly guaranteed by those first ten Amendments would still exist even if one or more of those Amendments were to be repealed.

    It’s quite clear from his blathering little rant that Jerry Large – like so many others who jump on their little rhetorical ponies and ride off, leaving piles of wordy horseshit behind – doesn’t even understand the very simplest part of that…
