To no one in particular.....   We want to keep this in the Open area so let's be civil in the discussions.  Thanks.

Even better just completely ignore posters who are not bringing any worthwhile conversation to the table...

When the 2nd was written the firearms held by the military and citizens were the same. They didn't envision a government with guns and a civilian populace with torches and pitchforks.

I agree.  I am getting tired of people wondering why citizens need to have automatic weapons and large capacity clips to go hunting.  Owning weapons is not just about hunting or personal protection.  We have the right to bear arms.  We should be able to form a civilian militia when needed, yet no one wants to say this to the press.

While it would be nice to own an automatic firearm very few of us do we own semi-auto firearms and we should be sure to point out to those who don't know the difference between the two...

As to high cap mags I own them for the very same reason that I own numerous SEMI-AUTO firearms for sport shooting and while I pray that I never need to use them against a human who has intent to harm me or my family I would and that includes a tyrannical government.

To the flinlock crowd.  Maybe we should consider banning the same type of gun that killed Lincoln.  Or the weapon that killed teddys girlfriend at Chapaquidick (s).  Let's ban doctors, how many people do they kill every year? 

Question to no one in particular, 3 options when an armed intrudor breaks in your house at o dark thirty.  You have a phone, bible, and gun.  Which one has the highest percentage of saving you?  Prayor maybe, but if the good word has been followed (He helps those who help themselves) prayor comes after completion of action.  You can call 911, help is minutes away (I know, the threat is immediate).   Or you can defend yourself, reducing the threat to a manageable level.

 :-\  I'm not finding "He helps those how help themselves" in my Bible.  Can you provide a reference?

I do wonder why this story isn't making national headlines:

Back on topic is this bit out of Atlanta.

Atlanta School Shooting Update: Armed officer working at middle school disarmed suspect, says chief
 By Crimesider Staff .

/ CBS Atlanta (AP) ATLANTA - Atlanta's police chief says an armed officer working at a city middle school where a student was shot was able to disarm the suspect, also a student, moments after the shooting. Authorities say a 14-year-old boy was shot in the back of the neck Thursday at Price Middle School and his injury does not appear to be life-threatening. The suspect was taken into custody.
 
Chief George Turner says multiple shots were fired, and only the 14-year-old was wounded. After some initial confusion about the nature of a teacher's injuries, officials now say the teacher received minor cuts in the aftermath of the shooting.


Police spokesman Carlos Campos says investigators believe the shooting was not random and that something occurred between the two people involved that may have led up to it.
 
Students at the school were kept inside for hours as their parents waited anxiously outside. By 5p.m. children were being reunited with their parents.
 
Atlanta Public Schools Superintendent Erroll Davis says the school has metal detectors and officials are looking into how the gun got on campus.

Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.
