I was being silly to highlight my point that the essence of second amendment was, IMO, ridiculous in today's world.>
You're certainly free to think or feel that, but it's part of The Constitution. It's not going to go away.
What does it prove or change that politicians have support the second amendment for a longer time than I was against? Of course they won't go against the people who vote for them. That is part of the problem if you ask me.?
There are some politicians who won't pander to people (I just don't think that it's the majority of them..), but it goes beyond that. It's a Supreme Court thing.
We agree about that, however, I'll point out that it is the same for anywhere in the world... again. How come there is less of all that kind of violence elsewhere in similarly "developed" countries when they have less guns to protect themselves? Oh, wait...>
You're confusing things. First, there's not necessarily less violence in other countries. Mexico, for example, has a notorious reputation for drug cartels. If you want to take Iraq, you had Saddam. I'm sure that there are some countries that arrest or beat you (Or worse.) for criticizing the President or The Government. And our country has The Second Amendment.
