Dear Religious(read: Christian) People,

When you offer me a bible and I politely decline and say, "No, Thank you. It's not my thing." That is when you walk away and say, 'Have a nice day.' You should not then rant for 10 minutes about how it is the word of God and the only book full of prophecies that actually came true, and how the odds of that happening is like finding a specific coin in a pile of coins the size of Texas and two feet deep. It all sounds a lil' Palin-esque if ya ask me. :P

Just because I'm too nice to tell you to shut it and go away does not mean I'm interested in your craziness.

The 2nd Ammedment protects your right to bear arms in order that you might serve in the militia. The militia is all able-bodied people willing to contribute to armed defense. The basic functions of this right are to provide for personal defense, to allow groups of people to engage in orderly civil defense, and to allow the kind of training and experience with arms that would help raise an army in times of need. It's clear to me the 2nd Ammendment protects your right to own any sort of weapon that reasonably fulfills those purposes. However, there is nothing in the 2nd amendment that says you cannot have background checks on commercial gun purchases, or that some people can't be disqualified. In fact, in specifying that the right to bear arms allows someone to serve in a "well-regulated" militia, it can be argued that the 2nd amendment implies that the right to bear arms is conferred only to competent people. The practicalities of modern 21st century life suggest that the state has an interest in regulating what sort of firearms can be carried beyond the domain of your own homestead and immediate environment, and in what manner. I do believe there are some Constitutional and practical questions surrounding private gun ownership, and the regulation of specific types of firearms. But I have a hard time seeing how anyone can reasonably object to background checks for the commercial sale of a firearm. People with recent convictions for violent crimes and some felonies, or who have been hospitalized for posing a threat to themselves or others because of mental illness, should not be able to buy a gun from a store or gunshow. Family members and friends should not be allowed to knowingly give a firearm to someone with such a history. If such simple steps can even cut mass shootings in half, we can say that we are ready to join the rest of the civilized world. We can then say that we respect the right to bear arms, we don't corrupt the 2nd amendment into some kind of cultic worship of death and fear of strangers.

That famous line in DBZ was originally "Over 8000," NOT 9000. Seriously.
