Something right!

Just what the NRA and Trump advocate, more guns for safety.

They had a news segment in the past week or so where the Church Pastor was talking. Stated when he announced armed security was present the worshipers then showed they were also.

Well, if we insist that all and sundry nut jobs have "second amendment rights" (whatever the hell *that* means), I guess that's where we are headed.
And, I suppose by extension, I should keep an inflatable life jacket on in case I'm caught in a flash flood event. A lot less trouble than flood control management, right?

I don't have a problem with reasonable armed home defense, tho the second is silent on that and so, under the tenth, it falls to the States to regulate firearms inside Federal authority. This shouldn't mean that there is an unlimited entitlement to private arsenals.
Open carry is legal in many States, including this one, but I am not a fan of OC. CC, vetted by a thorough background check, is fine with me. I have one but seldom use it.
I've spent some thought on what rights I have that have been defended via a second amendment rationale in the last century and have nothing. Pretty much all of it has come by systematic procedure, no guns involved.

Dr. Esther Choo: The NRA denies the reality of gun violence. Doctors like me know it all too well.

The reason the United States has more gun related violence than any other "first world" nation is…………..because we don't have enough guns.

Right.
