TK421 - I am a Brit, who is therefore not burdened with such as a written constitution, or the likes of the 2nd Amendment.- thank God. I also believe that the main thrust of the 2nd Amendment is that civilians should [given the constraints of age and issues of sanity] be allowed to bear arms within a militia context - rather like your National Guard, of the British ‘Territorial Army’/Army Reserve. I don’t think those who penned the 2nd Amendment envisioned the majority of citizenry being able to own personal armouries of weapons in their own homes and out on the streets.
p.s. The first 16 years of my life was in an Army environment, and as a Cadet armourer I learned to be a marksman with all sorts of weapons, but I am quite happy to leave things up to the Police, and if necessary the Military, to ensure my safety and that of my family, here in the UK. The rate of murder and suicide, especially by gun, is far lower here than in the States, pro rata. Oh, I don’t think that God allows guns into Heaven.
