I mhave dial up so didnt watch video but the second amendmant is sacred as is all the constitution.  Without the right to bear arms we are defenseless, the founders incorporated this right not only for self defense but also to keep the government from ever becoming to repressive.  Guess that failed, didnt it.

No Bill - I agree 100% - the video is about the girl that was out to dinner in a small town in Texas with her parents - a man drove into the  cafe and started shooting - she had gotten a gun a few weeks prior and learned how to use it and as she reached for it, she realized she had taken it out and put it in her car because it was a felony to carry a gun into the cafe - her father and mother was killed - she said she would rather be sitting in a jail cell for committing a felony and still have her parents alive - she ended by saying she was speaking out for the protection of the people to be protected from the legislators. Pretty powerful.

Sometimes I wonder if it'd be better if we all carried firearms on us at all times. On one hand, people would leave others alone. On the other hand, murders might go up, it could be like the wild west in some places.

I don't know what the answer is.
As long as the Steelers themes smileys exist so shall my protest last!

One thing I do know is that disarming the people does not work

Actually, the better armed the citizenry, the lower the crime rate.  The NRA has some great statistics on this.  You know that Moses ran the NRA for a while.  LOL

I love Flordia's anfd Texas self defense laws.

The Government has all but abdicated its responsibility to ensure that citizens are free to enjoy this freedom.

One thing we should all agree on, postal workers should not be allowed to carry guns while sorting mail.

Why? 

Significant cuts in Postal personnel might reduce the price of postage stamps.

...why is this not a good plan?

Then just teach them to bleed in other direction.
