    Code of Conduct

    Re: Thoughts after Sandy Hook

    I just sent this to Senator Wyden for his consideration:



    After several thousand pages worth of reading concerning the Second Amendment, I've come to the conclusion that there is a way past the reactionary NRA faction's obstinacy about what Congress can do concerning gun control. As the Amendment stands, the NRA and Gun Owners of America's most strident interpretation is correct -- but the Amendment does not stand alone. I was reminded of this in principle when perusing the remarks of Justice Souter in his commencement address at Harvard, specifically that no piece of the Constitution may be taken in isolation.

    Here is where the key lies:

    "The Congress shall have power... To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the militia,...."
    --Art I Sec 8.

    It seems plain to me that setting restrictions on what firearms may be carried for common use, i.e. for keeping and bearing, comes under the authority given for "organizing... and disciplining, the militia". This would cover one of the items of current immediate attention, namely the size of magazines for semiautomatic weapons. Under the militia concept in the eighteenth century, arms not considered appropriate for common use were not banned for citizens, but were required to be stored in appointed places for arms for the militia; specifically, they were stored in arsenals under the command of the militia's officers. Congress power certainly extends to defining magazines which contain more than, say, twenty rounds as not appropriate for keeping and bearing for everyday purposes -- and to require those who own such to have them stored at an appropriate facility, under lock and key, for use at that facility (or in competitions).

    We have today no arsenals, for the simple reason that since the introduction of the National Guard as an organized militia, our unorganized or common militia has lost the habit of training, and communities since roughly the time of the Civil War have ceased organizing citizens' militias. But we have a somewhat comparable institution, something our forefathers didn't have, in the form of the gun club, shooting club, or shooting range, where facilities generally exist where firearms and/or accessories may be stored under lock and key for the use of their owners at those facilities.

    Thus the path to follow would seem to be thus: that Congress, under its authority to organize and discipline the militia, specify that any magazines of more than twenty rounds must be stored at a gun club, shooting club, or shooting range, available to the owner as described above. Congress might also appropriate some funds for zero-interest loans to such organizations to provide storage means if such are lacking.



    This would be very hard for LaPierre to fight, because it rests solidly in the militia tradition he supposedly defends.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    --Jonathan Rauch, Salon Magazine, March 13, 2000

    in the US, at least, talking about repealing the 2nd Amendment instead of regulations seems akin to advocating abstinence-only education instead of condoms.

    It was once that way about the 3/5ths rule.


    Except getting rid of it wouldn't actually oblige the government to destroy everyone's guns. You could still see some guns used and kept for many purposes. Most countries have nothing equivalent to it, and they have stable legal frameworks that put guns in the hands of people who actually need or use them.

    But it would now be a debate about where the proper balance rests, and pro-gun people would be obliged to bring the same kind of facts and analysis that gun-control advocates now do in a vain attempt to advance a reasonable agenda. There would have to be negotiation and compromise, and recognition that both sides have to be called to account.

    But because of the language in the Amendment, the gun nuts can just stick their fingers in their ears and say "LALALLALALA 2ND AMENDMENT LALLALALA."
    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte. And Joseph Wilcox.

    not to derail the thread, but I'm not sure I understand the parallel... the three-fifth compromise was an attempt by Northerners to limit the Congressional power of Southerns by not letting them count their slaves fully as part of the population for the purpose of electoral/house seat allocation.

    it was never repealed, just superseded by the 14th Amendment. I'm not sure what the comparison to the 2nd Amendment would be... a constitutional amendment to ban bullets? argue against me, but I don't think we'll see an appetite for such sweeping anti-gun measures in this country in my lifetime.

    for all the comparisons to slavery and the like, as if the 14th Amendment happened by good will and magic, bear in mind that it took the bloodiest war in US history to resolve that dispute.

    even after the Civil War, it took the Reconstruction Acts and Congress repealing Habeas Corpus to suspend the Supreme Court to get it ratified.

    Empty words. TAXES are government interference. Government interferes, that's why it's there. If you feel that living in a safe environment where mass shootings are a once-a-decade exception, rather than a weekly norm, is government interference, then I welcome it.

    But it isn't supposed to do so. Goverment has only three legitimate functions:

    1. Provide a standing army to protect us from without;
    2. Provide a police force to protect us from each other;
    3. Provide a system of courts so that we may seek peaceful redress with each other.

    Period.

    I really do think the problem on your hands is so debilitating that if it requires all those measures once again, then it would be the lesser evil. There is something wrong with the mentality as to how people should relate to one another in daily live via the gun that is malignant in the same way it is malignant to think of keeping others as human property. It can't coexist in one country in tension with better values. And the death toll from the madness equals a civil-war-death-toll every 10 or 15 years anyway.

    If there is a steep price to be paid for a sane future, I don't know what else to say but that watching children die at Newtown must motivate people to escape their delusion and complacency about the right to unnecessary weaponry.

    To decide that whatever else the future might hold, it's just fine to be consistent with the principles and policies and constitutional doctrines that people considered okay on December 13, is a bitter snub to the memory of children who should have been sufficiently defended by mere virtue of waking up that morning and going to school under the peaceful sky.

    Not at all, Henry. Just keeping the truth on the table.

    Right now I'm off to do the last of my Christmas shopping, then I'm heading down to the beach for a swim - it's absolutely perfect weather today. Not the Christmas you northerners are used to, I know, but we love it this way!

    Regardless of the mud we sling at one another around here, Henry, may I genuinely wish you and your loved ones a truly wonderful Christmas. Be of good cheer!

    Three distinctly different functions, none of which could be effectively done by individuals or groups.
    If citizens desire anything else (fire protection etc) they have the ability to request it and the obligation to pay for it.

    Re: Thoughts after Sandy Hook

    i'm not sure of the statistics , how many of your mass shootings are by legal weapons and how many are by illegal weapons ?
    if every one in the united states who owned legal fire arms decided they didn't really need them anymore and gave to the government freely to be destroyed without asking for compensation , would it solve your problems ?
    How many illegal weapons would still in circulation ?
    we had most of our legal weapons taken away about 16 years ago , i don't think it made a difference !

    I understand your criticism. But I think this is a "gut reaction" piece, not a substantive statement or recommendation.

    Let's be honest: the US has the most reprehensible gun death record in the industrialised world, by a very large margin. I believe it is the right (and perhaps the duty) of US citizens to demand answers, and potential changes. There is nothing unique about the US culture that justifies 30,000 gun deaths per year.

    Actually, it halved the rate of gun-related deaths, and to date has eliminated mass shootings. A massive difference, in fact.

    If you really study what was going on in Germany during that era, you'll learn that many Jews regarded themselves as good Germans and didn't believe that anything bad could or would happen to them. Many of them finally woke up after the events of Krystallnacht

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kristallnacht

    There's are reasons why we have the right to own and bear firearms and all of them are valid

    I believe Breed's Hill was more important, though Lexington was more or less the trigger.

    Point of fact - many Jews did NOT go down at all. They all would have in your fantasy gun land.

    Sure. That's why Schindler armed the Jews he rescued -- to make sure they died.

    That was after. When first Jews were rounded up, they stood NO fighting chance, and their resistance would have resulted in their instant death.

    This discussion is really spooky. Incredible, frightening.
    To connect the topic to the Holocaust is outrageous. You will take every argument to keep your weapons. You donīt want to protect the kids, you want to protect your guns. You donīt want a serious debate. Hidebound. Unteachable. Everybody knows, more guns - more violence. The time is over for Cowboys, guys. Take a lesson from Australia. But you donīt want to see that.
    I hope you will be happy with your guns - and more dead children, husbands, wives, suns, daughters, friends... Good night and good luck.

    As the JFPFO notes, it would have been better to have gone down fighting.

    And as I noted down, that's bullshit. It was better to not go down at all and go on living. Which many of them managed to do, and wouldn't have if they had resisted. It's a simple fact and I don't see anyone trying to deny it.

    "Many"?

    Compared to the six million, just how "many" was it?


    Besides which, that's not your call to make -- you don't own them. If I'd rather go down taking some enemies with me rather than go to a concentration camp, that's my choice; it's not anyone else's to make for me.

    And that's the root of the problem: all this "gun control" talk tends to rest on the proposition that people are property.

    Yeah, and all of your talk tends to rest on the proposition that you're a cowboy vigilante superhero and that every sane person should think like you.

    Would you buy a firearm for this person?

    Would you sell a firearm to him? After all, it's just business.

    didn't he basically steal the gun he used from his mom?

    I'm all aboard the gun control train, but it's foolish to pretend that any of the suggestions that Congress might pass (assault rifle ban, background checks, lower clip capacity) would have prevented this tragedy.

    the only thing that may have would be an outright repeal of the 2nd Amendment (and possibly the 4th, since repealing the 2nd is pointless unless we also authorize police to search every home and seizing the millions of guns already out there on the streets)

    Re: Thoughts after Sandy Hook

    It's also foolish to think that our gun control laws are ineffective because gun control is ineffective, lobbyists paid a lot of people to make sure our gun laws were ineffective.

    Eradicating gun violence is one thing, mitigating the damage is another. The first - while a commendable goal is not possible, the second is only common sense.

    Oh and yeah - once again - discussion of the 2cnd amendment is just a red herring - it is ALREADY legal for the Gov (and it already does) to regulate firearms. The ONLY thing in question is the type and amount of regulation.
