|ND: How much is right to bear arms worth?|
Submitted by: firstname.lastname@example.org">Mark A. Taff
If there's a magic number, what would yours be?
If you are a gun-rights advocate and you believe the Constitution's Second Amendment gave individual citizens the right to carry any type of gun or "Arms," then I really want to know: How many deaths will it take for you to support tighter regulations or a ban on certain types of assault weapons? And what's your point of measure?
If it's a total number of deaths by gun violence each year that would convince you, how many deaths would that need to be?

|"Abusum non tollit usum" is an old Latin phrase meaning "bad use does not take away from good use." You don't ban fire because you were dumb and burned your house down by leaving a lit cigarette on a table ledge and it fell and ignited a carpet.|
Evil people will always exist. Cho, the Virginia Tech shooter, used two handguns and killed about THREE DOZEN people.
Gun bans DO NOT WORK.

|This person uses the wrong metric to evaluate the right to arms.|
The correct metric is, what level of liberty are you willing to defend?
When the balloon goes up, he who has the guns says what goes.
That is the sole determining factor in the value of the right to arms.
LIBERTY HAS NO EXPIRATION DATE
