I had a very brief exchange in this one, but it's still going anyways the first three posts as follows.
FB Friend; Gun ownership is a government given right. Guns were made by man.
Me; The 2nd Ammendment recognizes an inherent right. The Constitution does not bestow rights upon the people. It merely recognises what rights we are born with. Not government given.
FB Friend; I think the right to defend ourselves is inherent, but to do so with a weapon does enter gray area. I don't agree with limiting gun ownership, but I do agree there is some underlying issue in the U.S. that is feeding gun violence.
This next one is a gem
FB Friend; The constitution, as is, is one thing. The current debate is another.
After that first post I quit posting, I have begun just to take a hardline stance and all who don't agree can fuck ogg. There is no debate. GFY.

Me? I'm all for the phased plasma rifle in the 40 watt range for my PDW.
