Have a nice day!
“To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.” — George
Mason, Founding Father known as the Father of the Bill of Rights.
Answer the question, Bozo. Where in the U.S. Constitution that states that it gives the people, citizens, who are not part of an authorized militia the right to keep and bear arms? Let’s have a logical discussion based upon the law of the land.
Yeah, BOZO, answer!!
He can’t because he don’t know how. The law is unrefutable.
He Moron Maddy…. read my response to Robbie above.
Robbie, what part of “the right of the people to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” are you having a hard time with? Is the word “infringed” the one that’s tripping up your little mind?
“The Constitution shall never be construed….to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” -Samuel Adams
“The right of the people to keep and bear arms ” is not referring to citizens. It is referring to “the people” of a well regulated militia. First line “A well regulated militia being neccessary to the security of a free State”, not citizens. Read Article 1, 8:16. “Reserving to the States, respectively, the APPOINTMENT of the OFFICERS and the AUTHORITY and the AUTHORITY OF TRAINING THE MILITIA”. Pinpoint to me where it says “the citizens”, because “the people” addressed in context refers to the military. Better yet, it says “To provide for ORGANIZING, ARMING, and DISCIPLINING the MILITIA, and for GOVERNING SUCH PART OF THEM as may be EMPLOYED in the SERVICE of the United States.” Pinpoint to me where any of us has a right to possess, keep, and bear arms. I’m not going to resort to namecalling with you. I want you to show me from the document where it supports the NRA, GOA, or any of the dogma they spout.
Robbie…. so you’re argument hinges on the inclusion of the phrase “a well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State…” and what is meant by the word “militia,” correct? And you are correct about what Article 1, 8:16 says — it reserves the right TO THE STATES to create the militia. Do you have any clue WHY it reserves such rights to the States? I’ll bet you don’t because you have shot down your own argument with your cited facts. The reason such rights to establish and create militias are left to the States is 100% because the States were fearful of the possibility of the out of control growth of the Federal government which would eventually tyranize their citizens. The Constitution would NEVER have been ratified without the 2nd Amendment. Further, the militia which a State could form, would be made up of whom? Uhhhhh…. the citizens, you dummy. And so long as the citizens were armed, the formation of a militia could be done quickly and be organized by the State, who had lines of authority drawn in Article 1, 8:16. The is why the 2nd Amendment also says “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” It’s the people who are the militia. Who else could it be? Dogs? Horses? Rocks? Only a leftist moron doesn’t understand this.
Further, I have written this many times before in these pages of this sewer called “The Memo”, and I will do it again. You leftist freaks have no idea what the 3rd Amendment says or why it is there. Nor do you have a single clue that the 2nd and 3rd Amendments are 100% directly related and there is a reason they come one after the other. The 3rd Amendment, for you low information morons out there, states “No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.” You Robbie, most certainly are aware of the fact that prior to and during the Revolutionary War, British troops were widely known to barge into homes and conscript them for living quarters. They also would kill or kick out the male members of the homes, rape the women, and use up all the resources like food, water, animals, etc. Coming off the war, it was widely believed that our new Constitution should reflect the fact that the people have a God-given right to self defense of their person, family, and property against intruders be they other citizens OR government.
The fact of the matter is that, though you leftist freaks don’t like the 2nd Amendment and wish that it would be gone, no parsing of words or double guessing of the meaning, can possibly undue the plain meaning of the English words as written. Nor can you cite anything from the writings of the Founders either in correspondence, or in publications like The Federalist Papers, that suggests that the people DO NOT have a right to keep and bear arms. AND THAT RIGHT SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!!!
If you don’t like the 2nd Amendment, say so. If you want it changed, say so. But until you can get it repealed, there can be no infringement on my rights as a law abiding citizen to keep and bear arms, just because a few of you leftist freaks think you know better and can impose your beliefs on everyone else. So, until then, STFU!!!!!!!!!!
Read the quote below from Tench Cox.
As Founding Father Tench Coxe said, while attempting to allay the fears of critics of the proposed Constitution: “The powers of the sword are in the hands of the yeomanry of America from sixteen to sixty. The militia of these free commonwealths, entitled and accustomed to their arms, when compared with any possible army, must be tremendous and irresistible. 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 birth-right 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.” – Tench Coxe, Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.
Say, BOZO, what part of peaceable don’t you understand?
The people who most need the mental illness background checks, ironically, are the conspiracy theorists who are most opposed to it. They remind me of the hate groups such as the Klan, American Nazi Party, Aryan Brotherhood, and other white supremacists (and, in the 1960’s, the Black Panthers, who are no longer a threat UNLESS the white supremacists start shooting at black people AGAIN). White people who believe that, being WHITE, they are automatically entitled to a job even if they do not get an education, and instead of blaming some combination of their own lack of ambition and the deliberate impoverishment of the middle class by large corporations (the very people whose favorite politicians are elected by the VOTES of these unemployed people), they blame it on the OTHER people who are struggling like themselves. They claim, contradicting themselves, that minority workers are BOTH so lazy and stupid they stay on welfare all their lives, AND willing to work for so little that they take jobs away from “good” white Americans.
The truth that corporate interests do not want you to see is that the enemy of poor and underpaid white people is NOT the poor and underpaid non-white people, but the CROOKED AND OVERPAID CEO CLASS (not all wealthy people, just a significant number with no moral compass) who buy off the politicians who get your vote with distracting claims of “gun freedom” and “gay marriage” and other emotional issues. They do not want the poor or different races to get TOGETHER to oppose them: divide and conquer.
Allan… you can go back to your crack pipe now. It’s calling you. Can you hear it?
“A free people ought not only be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” – George Washington
Oooo! Let’s play Personal Opinions of the Founding Fathers! After all, the truth is that they didn’t much agree with one another on a lot of things, yet they were able to reach a compromise that allowed a young nation to be formed and grow.
This would never happen today, where one party refuses to even compromise on things it’s traditionally supported and endorsed!
Uhhh… evil lady… Obozo and DemonRATS had 100% control over the government for 2 years. This scared the living hell out of America, and in 2010 an historic reversal of control over the House was ushered in as a means to put the breaks on Obozo’s socialist agenda. Unfortunately, Boner has not been as successful as we would like, but at least he’s cornered Obozo and put the breaks on his march toward converting America into his collectivist/socialist utopian dreams. And there is NO COMPROMISE WITH EVIL. And Obozo and his socialist minions ARE evil.
What kind of idiot are you? Of course the personal opinions of the Founders influenced their actions, you moron. Just like your personal opinions influence your deviant beliefs and behaviors. God only knows what kind of freak life you live. The difference is that they were not idiots like the leftist freaks of today like you. They did not have to agree on every single thing, but they agreed on PRINCIPLES AND VALUES. And they agreed on GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS LIKE LIFE, LIBERTY, AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. And they agreed on the fact that government is instituted to protect those rights. These are big issues. These are the big points to which they ALL AGREED.
You leftist freaks despise our founding principles and our traditional American values of liberty, freedom, self-reliance, enterprise, hard work, and the rights to keep the fruits of our own labor. These are antithetical ideas to anyone that believes in the false promises of collectivism or socialism like you and Obozo and all leftist freaks do.
“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” – Ben Franklin
Ah, YES! All of those good folks with multiple semi-automatic pistols and rifles, dozens of high capacity magazines, and hundreds or even thousands of rounds of ammunition are all so DISCIPLINED!
Why, NONE of them would EVER even think of harming others. By spraying gunfire in a movie theater. Or in a school. Or a mall.
NOOOOOOO!! Why, they all belong to the NRA. So, none of them would ever show road rage. Or act out in vengeance. Or pull a gun, unless someone else pulled one first.
Why, ALL of them could be depended upon to calmly stand and pick off any perp that tried to harm someone. Couldn’t they?
After all, they ARE armed and disciplined, right?
It must be exhilarating to live in FANTASY LAND every day.
Have a good day.
ObozoMustGo must go.
Why must he go, Jose? We do need comic relief now and then and Obozo is always good for a chuckle as long as you do not take him seriously.
Point In passing: new study estimates 50 serial killers at large in the US at any given time–that’s 2X the number in all other nations combined, probably originating in fundamentalist sex-guilt & gross ambivalence…brain-scans will soon reveal the etiology of these bizarre numbers…most psychopaths DON’T rely on arms to perform their butchery.
Separate point: this erstwhile 11th Airborne trooper suggests we revise 2nd Amendment to fit urban reality–& confiscate any weapon capable of firing a 2nd shot w/o manual re-loading…that might save some of the 14K innocent lives lost to guns per annum in this country.
We try to explain our homicide rates to tourists, business people & academics from other advanced societies…w/o exception they are baffled by our willingness to put up w/so much violence, but we tell them a flashover of resentment is building that will render the NRA & GOA impotent.
