So I guess my "insensitivity" is understood.

I agree with you Dave. And I think there needs to be some room for consideration that the men who crafted this historical document, among others, weren't perfect. They were humans, and humans make mistakes. We know they did nothing to stop slavery, even though some opposed it. So why not consider that they may have simply composed an amendment that was ill-considered, and wasn't phrased well enough to accurately express its intentions?

I know I'm replying a little late on this but, for both Esther and I, we've become desensitized to mass murders, or for that matter, firearm murders period.  The NRA and other gun proponents hide behind their interpretation of the second amendment in justifying their position. The way I read the amendment is in the 18th century in order to form militias insuring public safety, people had to own guns. This was before police departments came into existence. Now maybe firearms were neccessary in procuring food but we now have supermarkets. Militias are now called the National Guard. As far as I'm concerned, only law enforcement and the military should possess firearms.
