27 school shootings have taken place so far in 2022 (140 killed)
I've been on this merry-go-round for years. Everybody goes ballistic for a time. Then, crickets. It's like a huge stone hitting the still water of a pond. It making a great big noisy splash. Then after a time water returns to it's prior quieted state. I hardly think this time will be any different.
I constantly hear about the guns being an absolute right according to the constitution. Not necessarily. The constitution was not handed down by God's hand etched in stone. The 2nd amendment is entirely a man made thing. Further more the original constitution was written on September 17, 1787 making no mention of gun ownership It wasn't until December 15, 1791 when the 2nd amendment was ratified some 4 years after the original document. It is only one of twenty six more we felt compelled to make.
In other words the constitution can be amended in whatever way the people wish it to be. Seems people ignore this fact. Now whether there is a overwhelming desire to do so or not is another matter. But let no one say it's impossible to change the words of our constitution It's entirely up to the will of majority of American people where we want our country to stand on this issue.
I'm not getting all worked up about this. Just trying to point out the constitutional argument is not an end all answer to the debate.
