GUEST,Troubadour BS: Anyone defend US gun law? (823* d) RE: BS: Anyone defend US gun law? 29 Aug 14

"But the consensus amongst your countryfolk is that guns are good and the odd massacre and accidental death is a price worth paying for your 'freedom'."

" -snip- And all those awkward legal situations are set in Constitutional law which can only be changed by a tedious process involving voting---by whom? -snip- "    Bill D.

I apologise for taking your comment out of context Bill, but this particular sentence is germane to the validity of the first comment here.

That Constitutional Law is based upon an undeniable misinterpretation of the Constitution (which refers to the right to bear arms in a well regulated militia, against a tyrannical government), and it is therefore unconstitutional to apply it to the shooting of other citizens by individuals, as a right. Somewhere along the line, the understanding of the Constitution has been corrupted by applying an interpretation not endorsed by those who formulated it.

That, I fear, wasn't as a result of a popular vote, or indeed any kind of vote.
