I don't see how that violates anything, of course I do not know your definition of "responsible citizen". Providing you just mean someone who has no prior history of violence, we can wholeheartedly agree. When I speak of gun control, I am more referring to the extremist ideas, banning guns entirely, banning handguns, banning semi-automatic weapons, ect. At the same time, I realize gun control is no solution. We need metal detectors and armed guards, because that gun free zone sign isn't keeping anyone from stealing a gun and shooting up a classroom, as the CT shooting showed us.

Metal detectors and armed guards where? If you think that America has the man power to put armed guards everywhere then your sorely mistaken... And who is to say that those people who get put into those positions of "watching" and protecting" will actually do there jobs....

No government is impervious to tyranny, and an armed people are harder to rule with an iron fist. Maybe that works for Canada. Here? We have the Constitution that guarantees our freedom, and guns to ensure it will never be taken. That's the point of the 2nd amendment.

I wasn't saying someone is a lesser person, but that they are subject to the whims of their government.

Guns don't equal freedom. Just because you possess a fire arm doesn't mean that your in charge or have a say you can still be controlled by somebody with a bigger gun. Unless you think your pistol or what ever gun you have is going to stand up against a tank or a fighter jet or helicopter that are designed for war... Wake up guns don't guarantee anything but eventually somebody is going to shoot and it's not guaranteed which side of the bullet your going to be on.

Of course the unarmed have a say, but they only have a say because of the armed. As is often evidenced by the internet, human decency goes right out the window once the threat of physical repercussion is taken away. Democracy can only function as long as leaders are threatened with an uprising if they disobey the will of the people.

Your not living in a third world country... The threat of the American government completely turning on its people and becoming a democracy is low with or without guns... The need for people in America to have 27 automatic guns in order to feel safe is absurd. If your worried that some idiot is going to run down the street and kill innocent people then you should either move or maybe step up gun control and keep those kinds of things away from citizens. The guy whoe did the school shooting got the guns from his mother who was a school teacher!!! Why does a school teacher need to have weapons?!? That's insane. Also why were they so easily accessible to her son?! This whole topic is foolish when your talking to people who think that guns equal safety... If people had common curtesy and the respect for other people then they wouldn't be killing each other. Idk how people can have it in them to kill another person and end there life it's shocking.... But that's just my opinion I'm just rational and level headed... And still have the ability to vote and voice my opinion in many political matters without having to march down the street with an ak-47 to prove my point.

Who knows how long that would last after a national gun ban, though. If it were to happen.

A number of states, and some counties have responded to this talk of banning semi-automatic weapons by expressing their intentions to punish any federal agent trying to confiscate them in their state with jail. It's very possible to fight back, as states are showing. Throwing the fed in jail is a pretty huge statement, grounds for a civil war even.

On a citizen level, if people are really serious about their guns, and a whole lot are, they are going to form militias. How formidable is an organized militia with semi-automatic guns, much less guns in general? People with weapons pushed into a corner are absolutely a force to be reckoned with, and this is in addition to the state support that would also exist. So I don't think it's as easy as you say, just simply confiscating weapons. Guns equal power and as long we have them, we have a means of forcibly keeping our rights if need be.

I'm CANADIAN and very unarmed and very much so a citizen. Your logic is very flawed if you think what you carry on your hip dictates your social status.

No. Someone of 85 could still have their cognitive functioning and memory in tact. Many people lose this in their old age- But their age should have NOTHING to do with it. I think people should be given the test every 10-20 years or so. If they pass, there is literally no reason to not let them have a license other than ageism.

If there is a minimum age then what is wrong with having a maximum age where they must get tested every year? It's the exact same thing on a different side of the age scale. And while some people maybe able to drive when they are old many many others still can't or have a diminishing ability to do so safety. If you make a specific age that you monitor there driving or check back on there driving records to see who is capable and who isn't.
