No.
I almost hate to link to it, but this pustule erupted in the last day or so.

The purpose of the American Second Amendment was to preserve slavery.
Sorry, no. It may have been used that way in a limited sense, but that isn't what it was for.
I suspect the author has Bellesiles (author of the groundbreaking and thoroughly discredited "Arming America") disease.

All I hear of are people looking for "quick-fix" answers. Guess what...there are NO effective quick fixes. (To anything.)

I'm sure there are some common-sense ideas being tossed around somewhere, but I have yet to hear any of them because of all the screaming and knee-jerking coming from both sides of the argument.

That's also small man's mind. A good part of them you cannot ignore is only like "politicians, just put the world into order for us! we don't want to waste a thought about anything, we just only want to work, get fat and breed!"; they do not want to think themselves, all they want are just simple answers, just that kind of material their mind is made of. - And that's the crowd such program directs its speeches to.
It's much more about emotions than anything else in a political discussion these days.
