    Pernicious things.
    Sounds like you need a gun!
    Owning a gun is not the issue. I don’t feel like *carrying* a gun.

    I was somewhere around Old Man Star, on the edge of Essence, when drugs began to take hold.

    I remember as a small kid watching western movies and series and thought to myself "wow those where wild times where people could just walk around with guns on them and get shot". Then I grew up and realized things haven't really changed from living in a small rural backwater town in the 1880's in the US and now. If anything more people walk around armed and it's even MORE dangerous. Funny how your perceptions as a small kid change of the real world once you grow up.

    Ofc I didn't have any concept of what the 2A was back then I just though because of the lawlessness of the west, people just had to accept that humans roamed around armed to the teeth and no one could enforce it. lol

    Fun fact: the Second Amendment wasn't interpreted to allow everyone unfettered access to guns in the 18th and 19th century. There were plenty of laws restricting gun ownership.

    If you had properly read the post, you would have understood that the first amendments to the US constitution were meant to limit the federal government but not the states.
    The tldr is that in the 18th and 19th century the bill of rights limited the federal government from enacting laws the states should enact. Including gun laws and establishing state churches.

    Or the constitution, or intellect, or morals, or ethics, or patriotism, or basically anything they claim to be for, except virulent racism and lust-guilt driven homophobia.
