Oops, you are correct. It was 1832.

I'm sorry "early in 2014" wasn't precise enough for you. That was the best we could do

Steinmetz wasn't kept out of the spotlight. He was world famous, nearly as much as Thomas Edison.

I don't believe there is any mis-information in Mr. Wilkin's blog. Just opinion, a good common sense opinion.

"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
There it is; written in 1789 by a bunch of middle-aged white men. Does that clearly mean to you that anybody should be able to walk into a store without any restrictions and buy a fully-automatic weapon with hundreds of rounds of ammunition?

Maybe he would have killed only 6 and wounded 20, instead of 12 and 56 (or whatever the exact figure is). It seems like there has to be a better way than to arm everyone again and return to the days of the old Wild West. I don't want to live in a world where everyone is walking around carrying a gun.

I know the wording of the second amendment is a little bit awkward, but how do you read it and then suggest to people that they "get off the well regulated militia kick." That is exactly what the Founding Fathers were referring to. People should have firearms in order to form a well-regulated militia.
I think it comes down to where people want to draw the line. I don't care if somebody has a hunting rifle or a pistol. But I don't think they should be able to arm themselves and go out in public like the guy did in Colorado. Where do you draw the line? A Gatling Gun? A bazooka, a missile launcher? Sorry, my precise knowledge of gunnery is not so good.

I think the easy availability of firearms in this country is amazing, and even more amazing is that some people, including many of those leaving comments here, don't have a problem with it. They just don't get it.
