Default Re: Crime and Punishment

I don't own a gun because I have children in the house and guns scare me. However, both Loury and Kleinman believe that the 2nd doesn't guarantee the law-abiding citizens of this country the right to arm themselves--indeed that that they think it's a lousy idea and that, at least in Kleinman's opinion, Obama agrees with him that it is a lousy idea. If the 2nd Amendment doesn't guarantee a citizen's right to arm himself, then what does it do? I mean, if Obama doesn't think citizens have the right to arm themselves (or wants to parse the language to such an extend that the founders were speaking only of a "militia") then he should announce his intent to repeal the 2nd Amendment and replace it with something a little more to his liking. Of course, no matter what he believes, he's not going to say anything that will ruin him in the general election, so I guess it's a moot point.
