TC’s Statements on Gun Control:
“No one knows what the hell the founding fathers meant when they wrote that damn thing. Any modern-day interpretation is just a guess”
This is not an opinion, it is a false statement. We know exactly what the founding fathers meant. We have their diarys, essays, political speeches, books… We know exactly how the language was used back then, and yes it was a little different. Think about it. We know what a hieroglyph says but not something written in english from several generations back? We have all the information and writtings that led up to the amendments, they didn’t just appear out of thin air without any explaination. There are newspaper articles, debates, dissenting opinions. Any person’s beliefs aside, we DO know exactly what they meant because it was a major issue at the time.
What you are doing here is suprising. You are parroting the catch phrases on an issue without showing any individual thought, basically spouting previously established ‘conclusions’ to summarize the topic. But you should hate that! 99% of the country hates steroids because of thought like this. Steroids are dangerous! They will make your penis shrink! They will make you violent! You are an intravenous drug user! Why does this matter? Because you can’t just read off of the ‘prepared index card’ about any topic. Not only is it empty retoric, but you are dead wrong on two points.
Secondly, It is a second amendment issue. I’m not going to bore you with the details but polls consistantly show americans are aware it IS a second amendment issue, so I’ll just say you are in the minority and leave it at that. This is not a political website, so I have said enough. Neither of our comments really have any business here… I am not attacking you in any way I just wanted to point out what I saw as mistaken reasoning on your part. Anyone is free to disagree about gun ‘control’ but we have to stay accurate when it comes to the bill of rights.
