So does the second amendment which was ratified in 1796. Laws don't stop criminals though because criminals don't care about the law. So that hasn't stopped the criminals in Washington DC from breaking the law.

Folks you need to understand. We live in a lawless nation now. It isn't like it was 100, 50, or even 25 years ago. The Supreme Court split 5/4 on the second amendment just a few years ago when the Chicago and DC cases were decided. Five to four! The same court just last summer decided that the federal government can force you to buy a private product or service with your private money from private business under penalty of IRS tax evasion laws. Wake the hell up. The Republic has died.

More proof that TPTB suspended the Constitution and we live in a totally different reality.

I believe the USA & The US Constitution has been dead for a long time....they, TPTB, just never informed us.

The law the courts enforce does not come from the Constitution, the law we live under is U.C.C or Universal Commercial Code.

The Federal UCC law was further codified into every state when they gave up soverignty for benefits.

That guy driving in the POV lane with incorporation papers should have illuminated at least some. Not only is a corporation a person in any court, to them you (a man) are a corporation (a person).

A lawyer told a friend of mine after losing, "the constitution is just a piece of god damn paper".

so just how does another law become greater than the law this nation was founded on?

easy, bankruptcy and a debt you can never repay because you don't have enough gold.

Jesus said, "of whom do the kings of the earth collect taxes, of stranger or of the children?" Peter answered, "of strangers".

therefore, if you are being taxed you can bet a foriegn power has taken over your country.

The Honorable William Gordon, in a speech to the House on Thursday, October 4, 1917, proved that the action of President Wilson in ordering the Organized Militia (the National Guard) to fight a war in Europe was so blatantly unconstitutional that he felt Wilson ought to have been impeached.

During the war with England an attempt was made by Congress to pass a bill authorizing the president to draft 100,000 men between the ages of 18 and 45 to invade enemy territory, Canada. The bill was defeated in the House by Daniel Webster on the precise point that Congress had no such power over the militia as to authorize it to empower the President to draft them into the regular army and send them out of the country.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,
That the militia shall consist of every able‐bodied male citizen of the respective States, Territories, and the District
of Columbia, and every able‐bodied male of foreign birth who has declared his intention to become a citizen, who
is more than eighteen and less than forty‐five years of age, and into two classes‐the organized militia, to be known

them by the laws of the respective States or Territories, and the remainder to be known as the Reserve Militia.
SEC. 2. That the Vice‐President of the United States, the officers, judicial and executive, of the Government of the
United States, the members and officers of each House of Congress, persons in the military or naval service of the
United States, all custom‐house officers, with their clerks, postmasters and persons employed by the United States

citizen or merchant within the United States, and all persons who are exempted by the laws of the respective
States or Territories shall be exempted from militia duty, without regard to age: Provided, That nothing in this Act
shall be construed to require or compel any member of any well‐recognized religious sect or organization at
present organized and existing whose creed forbids its members to participate in war in any form, and whose
religious convictions are against war or participation therein, in accordance with the creed of said religious
organization, to serve in the militia or any other armed or volunteer force under the jurisdiction and authority of
the United States.
SEC. 3. That the regularly enlisted, organized, and uniformed active militia in the several States and Territories and
the District of Columbia who have heretofore participated or shall hereafter participate in the apportionment of
the annual appropriation provided by section sixteen hundred and sixty‐one of the Revised Statutes of the United
States, as amended, whether known and designated as National Guard, militia, or otherwise, shall constitute the
organized militia. The organization, and discipline of the organized militia in the several States and Territories and
in the District of Columbia shall be the same as that which is now or may hereafter be prescribed for the Regular
and Volunteer Armies of the United States, within five years from the date of the approval of this Act: Provided,
That the President of the United States, in time of peace, may by order fix the minimum number of enlisted men in
each company, troop, battery, signal corps, engineer corps, and hospital corps: And provided further, That any
corps of artillery, cavalry and infantry existing in any of the States at the passage of the Act of May eighth,
seventeen hundred and ninety‐two, which, by the laws, customs or usages of the said States have been in
continuous existence since the passage of said Act under its provisions and under the provisions of Section two
hundred and thirty‐two and Sections sixteen hundred and twenty‐five to sixteen hundred and Sixty both inclusive,
of Title sixteen of the Revised Statutes of the United States relating to the Militia, shall be allowed to retain their
accustomed privileges, subject, nevertheless, to all other duties required by law in like manner as the other Militia.
SEC. 4. That whenever the United States is invaded, or in danger of invasion from any foreign nation or of rebellion
against the authority of the Government of the United States, or the President is unable, with the other forces at
his command, to execute the laws of the Union in any part thereof, it shall be lawful for the President to call forth,
for a period not exceeding nine months, such number of the militia of the State or of the States or Territories or of
the District of Columbia as he may deem necessary to repel such invasion, suppress such rebellion, or to enable
him to execute such laws, and to issue his orders for that purpose to such officers of the militia as he may think
proper.
SEC. 5. That whenever the President calls forth the militia of any State or Territory or of the District of Columbia to
be employed in the service of the United States, he may specify in his‐call the period for which, such service is
required, not exceeding nine months, and the militia so called shall continue to serve during the term so specified,
unless sooner discharged by order of the President.
SEC. 6. That when the militia of more than one State is called into the actual service of the United States by the
President he may, in his discretion, apportion them among such States or Territories or to the District of Columbia
according to representative population.
SEC. 7. That every officer and enlisted man of the militia who shall be called forth in the manner hereinbefore
prescribed and shall be found fit for military service shall be mustered or accepted into the United States service
by a duly authorized mustering officer of the United States: Provided, however, That any officer or enlisted man of
the militia who shall refuse or neglect to present himself to such mustering officer upon being called forth as
herein prescribed shall be subject to trial by court‐martial, and shall be punished as such court‐martial may direct.
SEC. 8. That courts‐martial for the trial of officers or men of the militia, when in the service of the United States,
shall be composed of militia officers only.
SEC.9. That the militia, when called into the actual service of the United States, shall be subject to the same Rules
and Articles of War as the regular troops of the United States.
SEC. 10. That the militia, when called into the actual service of the United States, shall, during their time of service,
be entitled to the same pay and allowances as are or may be provided by law for the Regular Army.
SEC. 11. That when the militia is called into the actual service of the United States, or any portion of the militia is
accepted under the provisions of this Act, their pay shall commence from the day of their appearing at the place of
company rendezvous. But this provision shall not be construed to authorize any species of expenditure previous to
arriving at such places of rendezvous which is not provided by existing laws to be paid after their arrival at such
places of rendezvous.
SEC. 12. That here shall be appointed in each State, Territory and District of Columbia, an Adjutant‐General, who
shall perform such duties as may be prescribed by the laws of such State, Territory, and District, respectively, and

States and Territories, or of the commanding general of the militia of the District of Columbia, such number of the
United States standard service magazine arms, with bayonets, bayonet scabbards, gun slings, belts, and such other
necessary accouterments and equipments as are required for the Army of the United States, for arming all of the

therewith, against the allotment to said State, Territory, or District of Columbia, out of the annual appropriation
provided by section sixteen hundred and sixty‐one of the Revised Statutes, as amended, or requiring payment
therefor, and to exchange, without receiving any money credit therefor, ammunition, or parts thereof, suitable ,to
the new arms, round for round, for corresponding ammunition suitable to the old arms theretofore issued to said

receipted for and shall remain the property of the United States and be annually accounted for by the governors of
the States and Territories as now required by law, and that each State, Territory, and District shall, on receipt of
the new arms, turn in to the Ordnance Department of the United States Army without receiving any money credit
therefor, and without expense for transportation, all United States rifles and carbines now in its possession.
To provide means to carry into effect the provisions of this section, the necessary money to cover the cost of
exchanging or issuing the new arms, accouterments, equipments, and ammunition to be exchanged or issued
hereunder is hereby appropriated out of any moneys in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated.
SEC. 14. That whenever It shall appear by the report of inspections, which it shall be the duty of the Secretary of

active duty in the field, the Secretary of War is authorized, on the requisition of the governor of such State or
Territory, to pay to the quartermaster‐general thereof, or to such other officer of the militia of said State as the

United States. In such case the organized militia so participating shall receive the same pay, subsistence, and
transportation as is provided by law for the officers and men of the Regular Army, to be paid out of the
appropriation for the pay, subsistence, and transportation of the Army: Provided, That the command of such
military post or camp and of the officers and troops of the United States there stationed shall remain with the

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 7455952


Unfortunately, few people know this and fewer
understand it still.

Also, to correct another poster, executive
orders are not law.

But, we're living under a rogue government that
doesn't care about rights, liberty, the constitution
or the people.

Happily, I don't recognize rogue governments.

What you fanatics in the gun crowd do not seem to understand is that THIS IS 2013!

Times are different, very, very different than they were when the founding fathers signed the constitution!

It is ignorant to try and apply "rules" written over 200 years ago to modern times.

STOP leaning on the constitution and THINK FOR YOURSELVES like rational, civilized people are SUPPOSED to do!

This info will be buried even more with more gun violence embedded into our vision from msm.

If enough old ladies and celebrities get behind Obama or whomever is pulling the strings, then it prob. doesn't matter if God himself made this rule/law/act/amendment or whatever was made in the past!
 Quoting: NoNameLoser



Based upon your post you may be surprised at how many "old ladies" support the ownership of guns. The "old ladies" are in large part, the generation of the 1950's and 1960's where the ownership of guns was not reviled.

Today's "soccer moms" may be supporters. Dunno. Please keep in mind that a lot of the so-called support for banning private ownership of guns is hoaxed by msm.

According to this Act, they should not have been allowed to draft for the Vietnam War...but they did. I say our Constitution has been dead a long time now. Like the illegal IRS (as another poster pointed out), we just "shut up and pay". I wish I could say that will change but what are a bunch of GLPers going to do without the backing of the other 300+/- millions of Americans who just do what they are told, legal or not?!

I'm in London and so I dont have a gun but I read recently that dildos are illegal in Texas but guns aren't.

Which probably explains the low number of dildo-related murders in the area.

Just because a certain amount of time has passed has no bearing on what we have built over the last few thousand years. The constitution is just that, a set of rules that we have learned from past civilizations that would apply for many more years to come.

Obviously you are misinformed on how gun control effects a nation. It allows the corrupt to rule over the innocent. That is applicable in any society so you can take your "Social progress" BS somewhere else.

No what ass clowns like you fail to realize. Is our Constitution was written by some of the smartest most well read men who ever lived. They wrote the Constitution too be a guide to keep our government from falling into tyranny. Read up on what was happening back in the latter part of the 1700's in our country. And you'll see how relevant the Constitution is. Especially the Bill of Rights. And look and see how these rights were systematically stripped away from us by legislative nannies. Who wanted ways to keep the population under "control." Especially look up the beginning of "due process." The slaughterhouse cases. Which ultimately put us down the path of the Police State were in today. When we could have been using the 14th Amendments "Rights and Privileges" clause. That was tried once in the past 150 years. During the D.C. vs. Heller case by the NRA attorney, and was ultimately shot down by many of the current Justices on the Supreme Court. Saying something to the effect of "what are you trying to do son, get a position at one of the Law Colleges?"

Wake up man, the system is corrupt.

Shouldn't organizations like the NRA supposed to be leading the opposition to gun laws?

WTF are they? Somebody needs to ask for their money back.

It's hard for me to legitimately comment on this issue as I am English and so have never even held a real hand gun, that's why I tried to make light of Texan gun/dildo laws in my last post.

Saying that, if and when it all goes tits-up, this side of the pond, I'll be a damn sight happier knowing that no one else has got guns here either.

The US army is too honourable and patriotic to ever turn arms on its own people, no matter the orders, so you wouldn’t have them to worry about them. What you would have to worry about would be armed gangs on the rampage with very little or no regard for life.

Mind you, if I were going to be your side of the pond when/if it goes tits up, I would want a BIG gun and one of those bazooka things for good measure. And some night-vision goggles, just 'cause they are cool!
