Does the odeot realize how difficult it is to amend the constitution?

Does the odeot realize that no amendment in the Bill of Rights has ever been repealed or modified? or likely to ever be repealed or modified??




But, they have been interpreted differently by the courts over time.

Can you answer the questions that I have posed to gun control advocates?

Neither 4AD nor odeon have given plausible answers.  They just throw red-herring arguments.

All I saw was well-supported arguments that shot down your nonsense in flames.

It is self-evident that you are too far down the rabbit hole to be reached. But I found their arguments interesting. And I found yours amusing.

 :wanker:

Let's see you counter my arguments instead of just lazily making snarky comments.

Just calling it as I see it. Sounds like somebody needs a waaaaambulance.

And Odeot :) already shot down your bogus claims about the murder rate after Australia's gun ban.

No, the odeot didn't. He showed cherry-picked data that showed an incomplete picture.

OK. So they regard the kids as expendable, then? Who cares if there is another school shooting as long as we have our guns?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_dilemma

This is another example of the shit that odeot passes off as logical arguments.

The reality is more complicated than the binary world of the odeot.

School shootings are a cultural phenomenon and were very rare prior to 1998 despite the fact that "assault weapons" had been available to the public since the early 1970's.

This is the saddest excuse I've read today. As for "very rare", nope. On the rise, yes, but not "very rare".

The odeot has no evidence for this statement therefore I invoke Hitchens's Razor.

This rifle is so deadly and so easy to use that no civilian should be able to get their hands on one.

I urge you all to read the entire blog post.

No, I'm going to take a page from your playbook and force you to spoonfeed it to me.  :pwned:

Allow me to quote your earlier post:

:wanker:

Let's see you counter my arguments instead of just lazily making snarky comments.

I was talking to MOSW, not the odeot.

The odeot has been supremely hypocritical when it comes to posting links.

Whenever the odeot's arguments are refuted with links or videos, the odeot refuses to read or watch them.

Then the odeot posts links and videos and expects others to read or watch those links.

The odeot is too much of an odeot to understand reciprocal conduct.

You do realise that your constitution was meant - indeed designed - to be updated, right?

Does the odeot realize how difficult it is to amend the constitution?

Does the odeot realize that no amendment in the Bill of Rights has ever been repealed or modified? or likely to ever be repealed or modified??

Oh, and

Last year a Reuters analysis of Australian Bureau of Statistics figures showed that in 1996, Australia had had 311 murders, of which 98 involved guns. In 2014, when the population had increased from about 18 million to 23 million, 238 people were murdered, 35 by guns.

In other words, the likelihood of being murdered by gunshot fell by 72 per cent in that period, from 0.54 to 0.15 per 100,000 people, Reuters said.


Too small of a statistical sample, it's cherry picked data.

Next.  :yawn:

That's how the constitution was designed. It was left vague in order that different people
could have different impressions. Part of why we had the war of secession.

The mainstream political left has lost its way, it no longer genuinely represents the interests of the working class and the underprivileged. What else is new?
