It was revealed today the one of the most conservative judges on the Supreme Court now says that guns may be regulated. WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Has he read the second amendment? Is he getting senile?
"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"
At the time of the writing, regulate meant regular. So they required the militia to be regular. And then it says, the militia is needed for the security of a state. It then goes on to say, the peoples right to own and bear arms shall not be fucked with.
The whole purpose of the second amendment is about stifling an overly powerful government. Aside from nuclear weapons, shouldn't we have basically the same arms as the federally run armed force?And by the way the founders wanted NO standing army for the same reason. So, back in 1780 or thereabouts, the common people owned the same weapons as the army they were fighting against and in some instance the common folk had better weapons in the form of rifled barrels that allowed them to shoot with pinpoint accuracy instead of relying on volley fire. The rifles could pick off the leadership and the soldiers will stop fighting. So today we have ordinary people with fine arms in the form of AR-15's, M1A rifles, outstanding shotguns and excellent choices of handguns. We are tit for tat there. Now we get to the bigger arms. To posses a cannon or a machine gun you need the governments approval. Cannons and machine guns are limited in numbers due to past legislation, which has driven the cost of these arms through the roof. So the leftist and the judges and the president are worried about our semi-auto rifles, semi-auto hand guns and normal capacity magazines. Not high capacity as we have the same magazines as the government forces. Normal capacity magazines, drill that into your vernacular. So when the government directed forces come for your guns, I ask this, What the fuck are YOU going to do about it?
