Why is the US even considering MAJOR (no guns at all) gun laws if it is against the Constitution?

I do think that criminals shouldn't be allowed to own them, or crazy people.

NO ONE IS CONSIDERING ANY LAW TO TAKE AWAY EVERYONE'S GUNS.
NO ONE.
NO ONE.
NOT THE PRESIDENT.
NOT ANYBODY.
NOBODY IS DOING ANYTHING TO TAKE ANYONE'S GUNS AWAY.
Okay?? Did you hear that?
Or do we need a few more people to post the same asinine question a few more times to spread ridiculous rumors that have absolutely ZERO basis in reality.
Seriously. Watch the news.
Nothing's happening. No new laws. No nothing.
Jeeeesh.

What do you need a 100-round magazine for?
What are you hunting- DRAGONS?
And if you're living somewhere where you need assault rifles, 100-round mags, grenades, shotguns, and Trident missles just to "protect yourself", then you don't need a gun, you need a real estate agent and a moving van!
So relax, Mr Tough Guy. No one's coming to take yerr guns away.

You've never answered that one simple question.
And "... because I want it" is not an answer.
The 2ns Amendment is not an absolute right.
You're not allowed to have a tank. You're not allowed to put a .50-cal turret on top of your minivan. You're not allowed to carry M67 fragmentation grenades. You're not allowed to have weaponized biochimera warheads. You're not allowed to enrich your own Uranium.
Until you can give a logical and rational answer to the "Why" question, then the answer will remain "No."

We have Mr. Biden, the Vice President of the United States, assuring a meeting of Mayor Bloomberg's 'Mayors Against Illegal Guns' that:
"Whatever legislation we can pass now, it's just a beginning". Sen. Dianne Feinstein has assured 'Mr. and Mrs. America' that if she could get the votes to ban guns, it would be "turn them in, turn them all in!"

Given the position of power held by these individuals, and their public pronouncements regarding their intentions, and their many supporters in Federal and State government who are introducing legislation to restrict, ban, and confiscate some or all firearms in the United States, I think it is safe to say that the right to keep and bear arms is under serious attack. To claim otherwise is either willful blindness or dementia.

Wickedpissah... Just so you know the second amend wasn't just written to protect ourselves from home invasions. It was put in our constitution in order to ensure that the people of this country always had the power to form militia to fight against any tyrannical government including it's own. You need to step back and look at the bigger picture here.

"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."

Report as

What they are doing is trying to save the lives of tens of thousands of American citizens each year by keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally unstable, drug addicts, and people with a history of criminal violence.
NONE of the Bills proposed would IN ANY WAY limit the number of guns a law-abiding citizen may own.
If you obey the law then nothing will change for you.
BUT - Answer me this...
There's a guy living next door to you. He's a documented schitzophrenic with a history of violence who depends on medication to get through the day without going on a rampage.
Do you think HE should be allowed to buy an M-60 and 1000 rounds of 7.62 ammo without even so much as a simple background check?
THAT is all we're talking about.
NO confiscations!
NONE.
Just simple, common sense solutions to save lives.
That's all!

That's good for you olpaint. However, the way you feel isn't necessarily how everyone else feels. Regardless of weather or not our government is out to get us the fact remains the second amendment was put in place to form militia in order to protect ourselves from tyrants both foreign and domestic. That right should never be threatened. If I want assault rifles that are automatic with extended clips...well then that is my right.

Anyone who thinks that banning guns altogether will solve all the problems is simple minded. Literally. They think "no guns = no violence" when that's just not the case.
In reality, that's not happening on a large scale. A majority of Americans like having guns, and there's no need to start having a fit.
