  • According to a recent study, the U.S. had the second highest number of gun-related deaths in 2016 after Brazil.
  • Like the U.S., Switzerland has a high rate of gun ownership. However, it has a considerably lower rate of deaths from gun violence.
  • Though pro-gun advocates point to Switzerland as an example of how gun ownership doesn't have to correlate with mass shootings, Switzerland has very different regulations, practices, and policies related to guns than America.

About 251,000 people around the world died from gun violence in 2016, according one study. One-third of that number — more than 80,000 — came from the two countries with the most gun-related deaths: Brazil, in 1st place, and the United States, in 2nd place.

TRIGGER WARNING TO ADOLESCENT SOCIALIST MALCONTENTS!

GUN CONTROL IS A CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUE!

 

Amend the Constitution to specifically address the Second Amendment...

 

Second-_Amendment--620x358.jpg

 

...Or run afoul of it - as a subversive Traitor to the Constitution.

 

Pretty simple and straight forward.

 

Good Luck.

 

Ha!

The Gun Lobby's interpretation of the Second Amendment is one of the greatest pieces of fraud, I repeat the word fraud, on the American People by special interest groups that I have ever seen in my lifetime.  The real purpose of the Second Amendment was to ensure that state armies - the militia - would be maintained for the defense of the state.  The very language of the Second Amendment refutes any argument that it was intended to guarantee every citizen an unfettered right to any kind of weapon he or she desires.

So you are now reduced to posting fabricated / misattributed "quotes" to argue your position? 

None of your "quote" come from Burger's 1990 Parade commentary. 

Snippets of your "quote" comes from a PBS interview he gave with Charlayne Hunter-Gault on the MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour on December 16, 1991.

you sir are insurection   

The Sedition Act

In general, sedition means inciting others to resist or rebel against lawful authority. In England, "seditious libel" prohibited virtually any criticism of the king or his officials. English common law held that any spoken or written words that found fault with the king's government undermined the respect of the people for his authority.

The U.S. Sedition Act first outlawed conspiracies "to oppose any measure or measures of the government." Going further, the act made it illegal for anyone to express "any false, scandalous and malicious writing" against Congress or the president. Significantly, the act did not specifically protect the vice-president who, of course, was Jefferson. Additional language punished any spoken o  https://www.crf-usa.org/america-responds-to-terrorism/the-alien-and-sedition-acts.html

Yeah, you are posting fabricated / misattributed crap as a quote . . . That pile of BS has been floating around for decades and it's time for it to die.

 

Only a couple words out of that block of text you have represented as a "quote" are Burger's words.  Whoever fabricated that fake quote took a few words that he did say (and not in the Parade article) and constructed that lie that you have presented. 

 

Here's two links to Burger's 1990 Parade commentary; first goes to a copy on Gunsite (a gun rights website -- you can copy text there for future reference).  If you do not 'trust" that one, here is a college textbook on critical thinking scanned at Google Books, the article is reprinted on page 377.  That link will open up and you will need to click on page 377, scroll down just a bit and the article begins -- you can not copy text from this site.

 

The Parade article is very interesting, Burger speaks of a right to possess and use guns for defense of home and for hunting that is unquestionable. with no militia conditioning.  Of course Burger wrote these words a couple years before he started to appear in Handgun Control Inc. advertisements and do interviews disparaging NRA and gun rights.  In the end. Burger's comments are less than compelling and survive only in disjointed misquoted and misattributed snippets the gun control confirmation bias museum; to be puked-up by people who don't know just how dumb it is.

 

The oft heard "fraud" phrase comes from a PBS interview he gave with Charlayne Hunter-Gault on the MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour on December 16, 1991 (video and transcript is at link).

 

The pertinent part is pasted below:

 

MS. HUNTER-GAULT: Some scholars have argued that the Bill of Rights is still flawed, that some of its provisions need reconsidering, that it's over rated. How do you respond to that?

JUSTICE BURGER: That is as with anything in this life, it could be better here or there.

MS. HUNTER-GAULT: Like where, for example?

JUSTICE BURGER: Well, that's a harder one to answer. If I were writing the Bill of Rights now there wouldn't be any such thing as the Second Amendment.

MS. HUNTER-GAULT: Which says.

JUSTICE BURGER: That says a well regulated militia being necessary for the defense of the state, people's rights to bear arms. This has been the subject of one of the greatest pieces of fraud, I repeat the word "fraud," on the American public by special interest groups that I have ever seen in my lifetime. Now just look at those words. There are only three lines to that amendment. A well regulated militia -- if the militia, which was going to be the state army, was going to be well regulated, why shouldn't 16 and 17 and 18 or any other age persons be regulated in the use of arms the way an automobile is regulated? It's got to be registered, that you can't just deal with it at will. Someone asked me recently if I was for or against a bill that was pending in Congress calling for five days' waiting period. And I said, yes, I'm very much against it, it should be thirty days' waiting period so they find out why this person needs a handgun or a machine gun.

MS. HUNTER-GAULT: What about the opinion polls, finally, that suggest that the Bill of Rights would not be popularly supported if it were up for ratification today?

JUSTICE BURGER: I don't believe that at all. I don't believe that at all. In fact, I think it's a little bit ridiculous. Any poll can be manipulated by how the question is asked and if you ask some active member of the NRA if the Second Amendment should be changed, of course, he or she would go up in the air.

MS. HUNTER-GAULT: That's the National Rifle Association.

JUSTICE BURGER: Yes. I don't want to get sued for slander, but I repeat that they have misled the American people and they, I regret to say, they have had far too much influence on the Congress of the United States than as a citizen I would like to see -- and I am a gun man. I have guns. I've been a hunter ever since I was a boy.
