Afghan Quakes

A huge cleanup is underway after two earthquakes shook eastern Afghanistan on Friday.

At least 21 people were killed by the quakes and it’s proving to be hard to get help to villages in the worst hit area, which is high up in the mountains.

At least four villages suffered serious damage and around 200 homes were destroyed. Houses in the area are made from dried mud – so they're not very tough – and even small tremors can cause damage.

Some emergency workers have arrived in the area, but it’s too late for some. Villagers have already held funerals for the people who died after they got trapped in the rubble.

It's against the second amendment, and a terrible thing to do overall for reasons that probably don't need explaining.However, we do need to monitor who we do and don't give weapons to. As you said, it's not the gun that harms others. It's the people. You're talking about the person who threatened to cut off the funding of an entire state of our nation based on his interpretation of the constitution. The person who has bypassed the Republican controlled Congress on issues of immigration and healthcare. While Obama couldn't mess with the second amendment, he has the authority to pass heavy restrictions based on interpretation.  Honestly, this is why I support ratifying the second amendment. The term " well regulated militia" is far too narrow in this age of bureaucracy.

If someone has the intention of hurting people, do you think that gun laws will stop them? You said it yourself, they already intend to break the law by hurting others.
