    If that's what you want to believe, it's your right. If you want to think Mrs. Lanza had nothing at all to do with the events of last Friday, ditto.

    Your lack of neutrality is shown by the blindly following the 2nd, I follow it with my eyes wide open.

    Also you might want to read a little bit about how Americans tend to feel about the Bill of Rights, Alexis de Tocqueville is a good place to start. Most folks outside the US don't even begin to grasp how Americans look at it since there is no equivalent outside of religious gospel . That is not a great analogy but it is the best I can do

    They're not gonna ban guns or even restrict them. There's too much money opposed to it. They don't give a crap that a bunch of little kids got killed. What they care about, and what matters most in the world is money.

    Yet you continually refuse to acknowledge that no one here is saying that at all. So go ahead keep aimlessly flapping your gums and burying your head in the sand.

    its a part of our identity...we are taught in schools that things change but the Bill Of Rights is sacresanct, it does not budge, it does not bend

    Why is it that whenever there is a shooting in the US they use a Cold War metaphor to try and justify arming even more people? Guns shouldn't be in schools, period. In an ideal world guns should be far more restricted in the US than they are, in reality any change to gun laws is going to be met with great opposition (remember the 1990 (?I think?) law that tried to ban guns near schools?) and any attempt to abolish the Second Amendment will be laughed out of Congress, rightly or wrongly.
    All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.

    Same goes for tobacco, alcohol and any large-scale interest. Money is the god of this world.

    I would imagine most Americans haven't even heard of de Tocqueville, much less know what he said about the Bill of Rights.

    But, y'know, the Constitution has been changed before. Old parts have been reworked when they were found unworkable. The sky would not split, the heavens would not rain with blood, and liberty would not be raped by communists if the Second Amendment were to be revised.

    Which also goes back to money. We are a nation of pimps and whores without the orgasm part.

    Talk radio. Morning drive. KFI. KABC. Local radio. Why don't you poke around various news sites and see what's being talked about instead of giggling behind your PC?
