Newtown Connecticut: When will we ever learn?

“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.
Amendment II
Constitution of the United States of America

How many times does Barack Obama want to give eulogies and somber remarks for the pointlessly murdered and maimed?

When will Members of Congress move to Amend that outrageously construed 2d amendment?
"[T]he enshrinement of constitutional rights necessarily takes certain policy choices off the table.  These include the absolute prohibition of handguns held and used for self-defense in the home.  Undoubtedly some think that the Second Amendment is outmoded in a society where our standing army is the pride of our Nation, where well-trained police forces provide personal security, and where gun violence is a serious problem.  That is perhaps debatable, but what is not debatable is that it is not the role of this Court to pronounce the Second Amendment extinct."  Antonin Scalia, for the Court in District of Columbia v. Heller (2008)
