"knee-jerk" or common sense. All in your frame of reference I guess.

Overtuning the 2nd amendment will take at least another amendment. Deal with that liberal civil liberties grabbers.

If murder is already a crime, then how will making it a crime to use a gun to commit the first crime stop the criminal from committing the crime to start with. The only result with tough gun laws will be spreading the murder rates of cities like Chicago to the rest of the country. Do you think that it is a coincident that the two murder capitals of the US are also the two cities with the toughest gun laws? CRIMINALS DON'T CARE ABOUT LAWS, they are all for government restricting gun ownership, makes their pray easier and more compliant. How about you protect your family as you see fit, and I will protect my family as I see fit and we just agree to disagree.

macmac911, the problem is how you choose to protect your family endangers the rest of us. Adam Lanza's mother bought those guns to protect herself. A lot of good that did her and 26 other families in Newtown. The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is to not let him get one in the first place. IWe need an outright gun ban. In England, police don't even carry guns. Can you imagine?

The 2nd amendment does not need to be repealed or overturned....Just enforced...we have the right to bear arms....but the arms of the period...muskets not glocks and assault rifles...wow imagine the decrease in gun deaths if anyone had to use a musket!!

News Break: Since England banned guns, the police have started carrying "Fully Automatic" rifles (machine guns).... In the past, when they allowed citizens to have guns, the police carried night sticks.... Only 2% of gun related murders in usa HAVE I involved the use of AR style rifles
