    You can't even get a pistol permit in NY if you state "Protection" or "self defense" as a reason for the application.
    Why cant a responsible owner own an Ak? I know a few people with them and they never killed anyone nor do they intend too

    I have 2 friends who own AK47s....just to have them. same thing, they arent violent people, nor are they really gun enthusiasts. they just like to own things.

    im saying, America is a country of doing everything in excess. this is no different lol

    Thats another thing. If the left really wants to do something about gun violence, why are they going after assault rifles and semiauto rifles? The real problem are handguns. More people were killed by hammers last year than ARs, FRIGGIN HAMMERS!!!!

    Because it's politics Dez, it's not about helping the citizens, if they wanted to make the country safer then yes they'd go after hand guns instead of semi autos, they don't want to make us safer though, their motivation is purely votes, and people who don't know anything about guns are scared of semi autos, so banning those guns will result in the most votes gained.

    AMEND(v): 1)
    improve or correct something: to make changes to something, especially a piece of text, in order to improve or correct it
    2)
    revise legislation: to revise or alter formally a motion, bill, or constitution
    3)
    behave better than before: to behave in a more acceptable way than in the past


    Yes, all 3 of those things is why the constituion should be changed to adapt to the times. IT IS LITERALLY THE MEANING OF THE WORD!!!
    OK on this point Dez is right and you are wrong.
    A constitutional amendment, once passed, becomes as much a part of the Constitution as the separation of powers.
    Get well soon 80.

    of COURSE they are part of the constitution


    how does that change the fact that they are able to be amended, changed or removed?
