furthermore, i disagree that the 2nd amendment doesn't apply to today's guns(assault weapons/ak 47s/ etc) as much as i disagree that the 1st amendment doesn't apply to todays means of free speech(twitter, facebook, blogs, national tv)

if the 2nd amendment is done away with because we have better guns than when it was enacted, then lets do away with the 1st amendment as well based on the same reasons
the first amendment isnt killing anyone...thats the difference.

That's a stupid comment. How many millions of Americans have willingly sacrificed their lives fighting for the freedoms guaranteed by the 1st AND 2nd amendment?

Also how many Americans have lost their lives because other nations are threatened by our concepts of freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, etc.?

there are dozens of people who have committed suicide due to cyber bullying, so much so that people have been found guilty of murder because of their facebook stalking and harassing

upon this revelation are you now in support of banning the 1st amendment as well?

but just to be clear, that example was arguing against those that want to ban modern guns just cause they are better than the muskets of 1776.... our social press is better too, doesn't mean the 1st doesn't apply to today's facebook, email, blogs, vlogs and twitter

and still, banning guns is like banning cars to prevent drunk driving, or banning cameras to prevent child porn, or banning matches to prevent forest fires
