    Because it would violate the Constitution!

    Can't see the forest for the trees, can you??
    Here ya go

    Article VI - Debts, Supremacy, Oaths

    This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

    It's called the Supremacy Clause and it means exactly what I stated before, or do I need to break this down?
    One must be wary of the mentality creating the problem or the law creating the crime.

    I love America and the Constitution, if you don't then get out!

    Still waiting for you to show me something in the Constitution, specifically the first 10 amendments, that differentiates between minors and adults.

    Still waiting for one of you world-renowned constitutional experts to tell me why we don't already have "constitutional carry" if it's such an obvious infringement on our rights.

    I'm going to be waiting a loooonnnnnggggg time, unless of course Unfettered Might lets us know about the part of the Constitution written in invisible ink that only he seems to know about.

    Then why doesn't every state have constitutional carry already??? LMAO! That article has been around for 220 freakin' years!! Has every president, senator, representative, and Supreme Court justice chosen to ignore it?? Or perhaps you just don't know what you're talking about? Hmmmmm....let's see now.....on one side we have 200+ yrs of Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the federal government. On the other side we have "Unfettered Might" and a handful of armchair constitutionalists.

    I wonder who knows best how to apply the Constitution.........

    To PRACTICE in a field of business you have to have a license, to just tell someone something, you do not. THAT is the protected part.

    Now before you draw an incorrect parallel from that. To carry a gun is a protected right, to professionally teach others? Ok, you have to have a license. Get it? So whats your point?
    The point is that doctors, lawyers and even stockbrokers can have life-altering influence on people. That's why they need to be licensed. That's why they can't just say they were excercising their 1A rights when they tell people what they should be doing. That's why they need to prove their competence. Electricians and contractors and others also have to be licensed because their decisions can affect the safety of others. They can't just claim "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness".

    People that carry firearms around in public occasionally have to make life-altering decisions. They need to be licensed as well instead of hiding behind the 2A.

    I don't want an unlicensed electrician coming in and doing work on my house and I don't want unlicensed people walking around the street with guns.

    Oh it's good to be an "elitist"!

    I can alter someone's life with a rock. Do we need to license rocks? I can alter someone's life with a tire iron, do we need to license the carrying of tire irons? I can take my belt off and strangle someone. I can put a plastic grocery sack over their head. I can stab them with a kitchen knife. I can poison them with any number of things available at Wal Mart.

    You are concentrating on an inanimate object, B2Tall.... just like the anti-gun groups want you to.

Just imagine the feild day they would have with just any ol idiot being able to CC. A nationwide permit would definately be oh.. so.. cool! Remember, this is just my opinion and opinions are like A-holes.
    This country got along fine for the first 150 or so years of its existence w/ no such requirement. Several state now issue permits w/ no trining requirement and it doesn't seem to have a detrimental effect on their general population. In many states I can open carry a firearm w/ no permit, no trainig and again, no apparent detrimental effect.

    IMO if we went to constitutional carry (and we will it's just a question of when ) it would cease to be an issue because no one would know who was carrying. Right now criminals carry w/ out benefit of a permit and I don't hear the media screaming over that.
    See, it's mumbo jumbo like that and skinny little lizards like you thinking they the last dragon that gives Kung Fu a bad name.

    Yes. And they should be trained how to handle one too. There is no point having a firearm when all you can do is whip it up and hit someone in the head with it because you do not know how your gun works. You can call me anything you like, elitist, bigot, etc...feel free to do so -- I can be generous enough not to insult anyone no matter what I think...or how.

    They can raise it as high as they want. Do you think they will take away my gun when I get too old and too slow to use it ? Just like my driver's license, if I am no longer capable of driving, there is no point having one. I will gladly give it up when the time comes. Now if a doctor will declare me mentally unfit to have a gun, I will pass my guns to my kids and live in a safe place under a rock or something...then I can do a lot of rockin' around before I move on to that better place I know is waiting for my presence.

    You're concentrating on criminals. They'll always be around. I'm more worried about those who're ignorant of proper firearm usage and safety.

    You're not going to accidentally bash somebody's head in with a tire iron or accidentally take your belt off and strangle somebody (unless it's a real kinky date ). I'm worried about the idiot who accidentally discharges their weapon in public. Or the one who's stupid enough to leave it laying around where anyone can get to it. There are enough idiots out there as it is. Allowing unrestricted carry will only add more fuel to the fire. Isn't that what the anti-gun lobby wants??

    We all have to pass a driving test in the interest of public safety. I believe everyone who wants to carry needs to pass a firearm test as well.

    And, of course, training and permitting will fix that?

    In states that have no training required to obtain a permit, have no permit required, or have no permit required to open carry, what you speak of is no more of a problem than states that do require training. Again, all you are doing is repeating the rhetoric that the Brady Campaign and other anti-gun groups have pounded into your head for the last few decades.

    Its not going to happen because the definition is by STATE law. Didn't I already say that......?

    Because there has been a liberal agenda in this country since it's beginning. The Founding Fathers ignored those ideas because they would have led to our downfall, but those that had them did not give up and they have been picking away at them ever since. The first thing you do to a populace when you want to control it, is disarm it.

    The first blow happened in 1934 with the NFA.
    National Firearms Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The second blow happened in 1984 with the Hughes amendment.
    Firearm Owners Protection Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Here's video of the actual vote, it is blatantly obvious that the ayes DID NOT have it as even the recorded vote shows.
    YouTube - FOPA Hughes Amendment VOTE APRIL 10 1986

    Now there is corruption at it's finest!!

    There are other gun control legislation that also chipped away at our freedom, but I feel these two were the worst.

    Many states do, it's called open carry.

    Yes it has and it has been used for the wrong reasons. Power corrupts B2Tall, just look at your history books. For the most part, it's OUR fault that this has went on so long unchecked. That the 17th amendment removed the power of the state legislatures to recall senators is a BIG part of the problem.

    Because we as states have no recourse when a senator is not representing our best interests until reelection and even then, it's determined by popular vote instead of votes by our local representatives who can actually keep an eye on them, most of us don't have the time in our lives to watch every single move they make.

    See my state is one that did not agree with the 17th and did not ratify it. It sounded like a good idea at the time, but as it turns out, it was a horrible idea and there is a movement to repeal it.

    index

    There is an oligarchy that is trying to come to fruition and that you put so much blind faith in your government is disturbing and part of the reason it's gotten this far.

    Look at the shape of the economy, do you know why that is?

    NAFTA

    This was something that was agreed on by BOTH parties and it has brought our economy to it's knees. Republicans loved it because it put more money in the pockets of their rich friends, who in turn put more money in their pockets. The Democrats(socialists) loved it because it fit their agenda of a nanny state, cripple the economy and you bring the mighty US down. Don't think that they didn't benefit financially from it as well.

    They do not have our best interests at heart, you need to wake up. The health care bill was signed into law despite overwhelming public outcry. This is not the first time that has happened.

    We got some good people in there this last election and there are some powerful changes that are being implemented, hopefully we can get them through.

    As for our discussion, if you can't see the logic in my words and choose to stubbornly hold to what you believe, that's fine. I'm finished with this, I have other things to do.

    But so far 80% disagree with you......
    One must be wary of the mentality creating the problem or the law creating the crime.
