    The purpose of registration is to prevent second hand sales.

    Funny how no one is mentioning the type of weapon of war that was used and how the Hogg is no where to be found. Wonder why?

    Those are infringements.

    What does the 2nd say about infringements?

    LOL, no it doesn't. It only targets law abiding citizens. Criminals get their guns from theft, off the street, or a family member. Registration would not stop that.

    You tell me, once you quote it feel free to explain the current limitations on firearms if it is a right.

    Is there a single town in the USA that has a MLK in a nice area? I haven't found one.

    And it's no coincidence that this MASS SHOOTING hasn't really sparked a discussion about mass shootings.

    Odd though, since in the technical sense, most mass shooters are non-white.

    At one time the constitution also protected a slave owner's right to recover his "property." That ended with a civil war. The right to own guns will probably end the same way.

    When somebody kills or maims another person while driving drunk or distracted their privilege and their license to operate a motor vehicle will be taken (illegal aliens are the only exception, they are turned loose). Somebody like my S.O. deputy buddy and his buddies will keep eyes on them and be ready to pounce if they drive without a license after they get out. They are there to make things right.

    Things will be perfect after another 500,000,000 new laws.

    It depends on the State.

    We've had that in my state for 5 years. It costs $10M/year to keep up to date, and has netted one total conviction in that time with no demonstrable correlation to a change in gun violence.

    Its not what I would call a good idea.

    Good that means in about 10 years everything will be great. :)

    Isn’t it fascinating we don’t even know how many laws we have now? Insane.

    Every conceivable act known to man has been, is, or will be, illegal somewhere in America.

    The Constitution is just some words written hundreds of years ago that can be changed, and have been changed hundreds of times.

    Well no one died so it isn't technically a mass shooting (though it should be)

    The Constitution has been changed HUNDREDS of times? Just how many amendments have there been to it?

    Well ok, 27 :).

    But the amendments have been challenged many times in court and the challenge won many times. The first two amendments are a casing point

    It satisfies how some define a mass shooting, though it obviously wasn't a mass murder.

    If you are articulating the liberal position, you should state something about the Constitution being written by old white men.

    The Constitution of the US is a lot more than "some words." It is the framework that created a great country that most of us here are happy to live in. It can evolve via being amended, but in a controlled manner that reflects the wisdom of the people who wrote the Constitution.

    "Just some words?" What the [expletive] do they teach in schools today I can only ask.
