The Daily Democrat backdoors the 2nd Amendment.

On the heels of the landmark Heller decision by the Supreme Court, it seems liberals, including the ones who copy and paste editorials from their sister publications, want to change tactics to be rid of those evil handguns. If we can't take their guns, we'll take their ammo, or at least make it such a pain in the butt to purchase, and sell handgun ammunition that most stores accept those in the business of selling firearms won't bother to stock it. That is the real goal here, like the DC gun ban, its not about stopping criminals, its about eliminating something they don't like, guns.

At Issue: Forget handguns, go after bullets.

Our Opinion: Bullets kill people, and they're not governed by the Constitution, so let's restrict their sale.

You don't get it, and it seems you don't want to get it. Guns don't kill people, people kill people. Human beings have been killing other human beings since Cain and Abel, or if your an atheist, since the first human smacked his rival in head with a large stone. Implements may change over the years but the nature of mankind is the one constant. If you think a controlled environment where no handguns exist would be a better and safer place to live, Folsom State Prison is an hour away from Woodland, go visit this handgun-free environment and let me know what you think.

If a felon, parolee or someone who has been adjudicated as mentally impaired cannot purchase any firearm, then what is to be gained by running the law abiding citizens and small business owners through more regulation and paperwork? If there are laws to stop criminal from buying, owning or possessing firearms, we should be perfectly safe, right?

Oh that's right, criminals break the law, that's why they are criminals. No amount of paperwork, background checks, micro-stamping firing pins or regulation of ammunition sales are going to keep hardcore, violent criminals from getting their felonious hands on guns. The only way to keep guns out of their hands is to put them in the aforementioned prisons.

In response to this editorial, I am going to purchase a few boxes of ammunition and go shooting this weekend.

Handgun shooting.

Absolutely right. It will be interesting to see how the District of Columbia - which is currently trying to bypass the Supreme Court ruling by making it hard to legally register your guns - pans out. I just don't get what part of "shall not be infringed" these people don't understand.

Our right to defend ourselves keeps our families safe and keeps the United States a free country. Why is that so hard to understand?
