Default Gotta Like It - El Paso Residents Seem To Think New Laws Might Not Be The Solution

Targeted in Walmart attack, Hispanics in El Paso flock to firearms classes

Quote:
More El Paso residents than ever before crowded into a class over the weekend to become certified to carry a concealed gun in public in Texas after this month's mass shooting at a Walmart store that killed 22 people...

Michael McIntyre, general manager of Gun Central, one of the largest gun shops in El Paso and the host of the class, on Friday said his store tallied double the usual number of sales in the week following the attack, something that did not happen after previous mass shootings in Texas...
It seems not everyone agrees that new laws will provide a solution.

If there is one bright side to it we have people from a very liberal area that vote democrat now see the value of the second amendment. with all the illegal immigration, anchor babies and how californina became purple to as blue as you can be I sadly said since 2010 i feared something like this will happen and think more will happen. Wait until breeding like rabbits on other people's tax dollars turns texas blue.

And then there's this...

Segovia may be applying for her concealed-carry license, but she also wants to see changes in gun laws come from the top and make it harder for young people to get firearms. I think weapons should be a privilege and for safety, not to go and kill people, Segovia said.

I for one will never advocate for the mentally ill (aka Democrats) to take up arms. This is just one example that they are no asset to our cause and are more likely than not a liability.

Apparently Segovia failed high school Civics. She missed the point that the Second Amendment is not a privilege.

do they even teach any of that in high school anymore - one of the best ways to get rid of something is to first act like it doesn't exist

I think they teach the ACLU's take on the 2A: it was incorrectly interpreted as an individual right by the supreme Court.

Lets hope she actually learns something in her defensive firearms class.

Actually, someone showed me a 12th Grade Government textbook about 30 years ago. What they wanted me to see were the comments placed in the margins by the publishers. Next to the 2nd Amendment it said something along the lines that Government could make laws regulating the Amendment. The person showing it to me was upset about it.

If I remember correctly, I observed that he needed to discern what was actually being taught regarding those comments. Were the kids being taught that Government was able to 'adjust' the limitations placed on it by the 2nd Amendment or were they being taught that the rights recognized and protected by the Amendment could be regulated or both. (Bear in mind that this was long before Heller.) Either way, he had a right to be concerned.

As was observed in Heller, it would make no sense to place a limit on Government which Government could simply change at a whim. It would serve as no limitation at all. If a 'right' can be regulated, is it really a 'right' which is not dependent upon Government or is it a 'privilege' bestowed by Government; meaning it can also be as readily taken by Government.

I think we're now seeing the answer as to what was being taught.
