5 stars bro. I never want to use a gun against any man but I'll be damned if I let any man walk all over me because he has guns and I don't. I reserve the right to go out with a bang and not a whimper.

I agree, the point is that if you live in a place where the law enforcement is more heavily armed then the population then you live in a police state.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23524705

Exactly!

Nuclear weapons have nothing to do with law enforcement and probably never will. If you think a nuke can be used to create law and order within a population then you need to study more physics.

Stop being daft. A government body possessing nukes is no argument for complete disarmament of it's people.

I don't believe governments should have ever possessed nukes in the first place. But your argument is not one we are talking about. We are talking about arms a person carries (hint, hint, guns).

Re: The right to bear arms (2nd Amend) is specifically intended for DEFENSE AGAINST MODERN ARMY
Here is the language of the Second Amdendment to the U.S. Constitution:

"Amendment II

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."



Note the language that this militia is "necessary to the security of a free state". This means that this militia is ABLE TO DEFEND AGAINST FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC ENEMIES IN WARFARE...ie, be able to defend against a modern army of the day.

The original meaning of the language "well regulated" here basically means "properly trained and equipped." Also, the original meaning of the term "militia" is basically "every able bodied male who could serve in the army."

Thus, putting this Amendment into "modern" language, it is saying:

"A properly equipped and trained population of able-bodied men, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 20078449


This is the start of the civil war in America. MSM and your Government are flat out calling for your guns. Whatever side you stand on this, know one thing, this will get bloody. Before you say that there has already been blood shed, that will pale in comparison to what is to come. Check your fucking Government now. Tell them who the boss is. We the people. We the people are.


Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.

OP 'gets it'.

Every time I hear someone mention the 2nd amendment and hunting in the same sentance in makes me throw up in my mouth a little.

The 2nd isn't about hunting, people. It's about an uncomfortable truth - that the only thing standing between freedom and opression in this country is our very selves. No-one will 'fix it' for us while we watch gleefully from the sidelines. THAT is why the second amendment exists: so that when people finally realize they have to play ball, willingly or not, they have the right tools to get the job done accordingly.

I read somewhere that "Bare arms" was a military term commonly in use during the time period. It was well sourced but I don't recall where I read it. If this is the case, we are technically allowed to posses all military armaments, including nuclear tipped icbms.

To be fair, if our government respected the 2nd Amendment and it was in fact a military term.. I'd be for an amendment to discount the term to mean conventional military armaments and the like.

To bad our reality is that Government would love us to have nothing more than pellet guns for hunting with very strict rules on where, when and how you hunt.

As responder above noted, even an army of men equipped with AK-47s and semi-autos can give a modern army fits in guerrilla warfare, and even win (see Afghanistan, etc).

But I agree with you that semi-auto rifles and handguns are not enough. And guess what? The Second Amendment recognizes the right of the people to have MORE ADVANCED WEAPONS than this.

As I have shown, the original intent of this amendment was to recognize that the people have the right to be armed AS A MODERN ARMY OF THE DAY, in order to be able to defend themselves a foreign or domestic enemy army.

Yup I just bumped another thread explaining this same thing yesterday. And it's the truth, whether people like it or not.

gun ownership is a right guaranteed to every citizen in the constitution. even children are allowed to wield a gun if the citizens must form a milita, or if the child is defending their family. I would love to see people talking about mental health and depression/SSRIs rather than gun control.

"...shall not be infringed" means that no law - passed by ANY court or Congress or ANYBODY - can EVER limit the RIGHT of the people to posses *military* arms.

THAT was the intent, and THAT is the LAW of the Second Amendment.

Period.

There is no other intent and there are no "laws" that can change it.

Any "law" that attempts to infringe on those rights is "unconstitutional," to coin a phrase :P and therefore, null and void.

What you sheeptards don't realize is that the BANKERS have already overthrown this country and canceled the Constitution.

You get it? The war is already lost. The very DAY, the VERY MINUTE that the U.S. military took delivery of a weapon of greater power than the average Joe could buy, the United States of America was lost.

Don't you get it?

NONE of you are going to "rise up."

NONE of you are going do ANYTHING because you have already lost.

The entire system you perceive as "government" is utterly false. A sham. A ruse.

It is merely a curtain hung by the BANKERS who direct nearly every thought in your head and ever goal in your life.

Re: The right to bear arms (2nd Amend) is specifically intended for DEFENSE AGAINST MODERN ARMY
Fuck these tyrrants.

Point #1. The right to bear arms is an individual right, I see today that Cass Sunstein has an article out going back to the false argument that the 2nd ammendment doesn't mean what it really says.

FUCK YOU CASS

EAT A DICK BITCH

Every American should be recogniz these words, their authors and their writings on this topic.

All arugments put forth must be swiftly defeated using current empirical data (John Lott studies) and historical refernce to the unnassailable meaning of the 2nd ammendment with respect to our freedom and liberty.

Do not hold back on these matters people, through words and logic the tyrranical elements that are trying to march us toward captivity and a life of depravement will never succees.

We fight first by logic and lastly, if me must, by force.

"I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for a few public officials." — George Mason, in Debates in Virginia Convention on Ratification of the Constitution, Elliot, Vol. 3, June 16, 1788


"Whereas civil-rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as military forces, which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms." -- Tench Coxe, in Remarks on the First Part of the Amendments to the Federal Constitution


"The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed." -- Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers at 184-188


If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government, and which against the usurpations of the national rulers may be exerted with infinitely better prospect of success than against those of the rulers of an individual State. In a single State, if the persons entrusted with supreme power become usurpers, the different parcels, subdivisions, or districts of which it consists, having no distinct government in each, can take no regular measures for defense. The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms, without concert, without system, without resource; except in their courage and despair. -- Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 28


"That the said Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms ... " -- Samuel Adams, Debates and Proceedings in the Convention of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, at 86-87 (Pierce & Hale, eds., Boston, 1850)


"[The Constitution preserves] the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation...(where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." --James Madison, The Federalist Papers, No. 46


"To suppose arms in the hands of citizens, to be used at individual discretion, except in private self-defense, or by partial orders of towns, countries or districts of a state, is to demolish every constitution, and lay the laws prostrate, so that liberty can be enjoyed by no man; it is a dissolution of the government. The fundamental law of the militia is, that it be created, directed and commanded by the laws, and ever for the support of the laws." --John Adams, A Defense of the Constitutions of the United States 475 (1787-1788)


"Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive." --Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution (Philadelphia 1787).


"Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American...[T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people." --Tenche Coxe, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.


"Whereas, to preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them; nor does it follow from this, that all promiscuously must go into actual service on every occasion. The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly anti-republican principle; and when we see many men disposed to practice upon it, whenever they can prevail, no wonder true republicans are for carefully guarding against it." --Richard Henry Lee, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.
"What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms." -- Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, 1787. ME 6:373, Papers 12:356


"No Free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms." -- Thomas Jefferson, Proposal Virginia Constitution, 1 T. Jefferson Papers, 334,[C.J. Boyd, Ed., 1950]


"The right of the people to keep and bear ... arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country ..." -- James Madison, I Annals of Congress 434, June 8, 1789


"What, Sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty .... Whenever Governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins." -- Rep. Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts, spoken during floor debate over the Second Amendment, I Annals of Congress at 750, August 17, 1789


" ... to disarm the people - that was the best and most effectual way to enslave them." -- George Mason, 3 Elliot, Debates at 380


" ... but if circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude, that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people, while there is a large body of citizens, little if at all inferior to them in discipline and use of arms, who stand ready to defend their rights ..." -- Alexander Hamilton speaking of standing armies in Federalist 29


"Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?" -- Patrick Henry, 3 J. Elliot, Debates in the Several State Conventions 45, 2d ed. Philadelphia, 1836


"The great object is, that every man be armed ... Every one who is able may have a gun." -- Patrick Henry, Elliot, p.3:386


"O sir, we should have fine times, indeed, if, to punish tyrants, it were only sufficient to assemble the people! Your arms, wherewith you could defend yourselves, are gone ..." -- Patrick Henry, Elliot p. 3:50-53, in Virginia Ratifying Convention demanding a guarantee of the right to bear arms


"The people are not to be disarmed of their weapons. They are left in full possession of them." -- Zacharia Johnson, delegate to Virginia Ratifying Convention, Elliot, 3:645-6


"Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms ... The right of citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard, against the tyranny which now appears remote in America but which historically has proven to be always possible." -- Hubert H. Humphrey, Senator, Vice President, 22 October 1959


"The militia is the natural defense of a free country against sudden foreign invasions, domestic insurrections, and domestic usurpation of power by rulers. The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of the republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally ... enable the people to resist and triumph over them." -- Joseph Story, Supreme Court Justice, Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States, p. 3:746-7, 1833


" ... most attractive to Americans, the possession of arms is the distinction between a freeman and a slave, it being the ultimate means by which freedom was to be preserved."
-- James Burgh, 18th century English Libertarian writer, Shalhope, The Ideological Origins of the Second Amendment, p.604


"The right [to bear arms] is general. It may be supposed from the phraseology of this provision that the right to keep and bear arms was only guaranteed to the militia; but this would be an interpretation not warranted by the intent. The militia, as has been explained elsewhere, consists of those persons who, under the laws, are liable to the performance of military duty, and are officered and enrolled for service when called upon.... f the right were limited to those enrolled, the purpose of the guarantee might be defeated altogether by the action or the neglect to act of the government it was meant to hold in check. The meaning of the provision undoubtedly is, that the people, from whom the militia must be taken, shall have the right to keep and bear arms, and they need no permission or regulation of law for the purpose. But this enables the government to have a well regulated militia; for to bear arms implies something more than mere keeping; it implies the learning to handle and use them in a way that makes those who keep them ready for their efficient use; in other words, it implies the right to meet for voluntary discipline in arms, observing in so doing the laws of public order." -- Thomas M. Cooley, General Principles of Constitutional Law, Third Edition [1898]


"And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress ... to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms.... "--Samuel Adams

There is no other intent and there are no "laws" that can change it.

Any "law" that attempts to infringe on those rights is "unconstitutional," to coin a phrase :P and therefore, null and void.

What you sheeptards don't realize is that the BANKERS have already overthrown this country and canceled the Constitution.

You get it? The war is already lost. The very DAY, the VERY MINUTE that the U.S. military took delivery of a weapon of greater power than the average Joe could buy, the United States of America was lost.

Don't you get it?

NONE of you are going to "rise up."

NONE of you are going do ANYTHING because you have already lost.

The entire system you perceive as "government" is utterly false. A sham. A ruse.

It is merely a curtain hung by the BANKERS who direct nearly every thought in your head and ever goal in your life.

Until you can truly see the extent of the prison, you can never effect your own escape.

I like where you are going with this, but as is always the problem: what do you suggest might be a solution?

Re: The right to bear arms (2nd Amend) is specifically intended for DEFENSE AGAINST MODERN ARMY
We really need to stop calling it "gun ownership" and start calling it "Arms ownership."

Then, maybe people will start to see the truth.

I think, perhaps, the popular transition to calling it "gun" ownership was initiated by agents of the BANKERS in order to confuse the issue and begin the overthrow.

"...shall not be infringed" means that no law - passed by ANY court or Congress or ANYBODY - can EVER limit the RIGHT of the people to posses *military* arms.

THAT was the intent, and THAT is the LAW of the Second Amendment.
