Yet today, due to the breakdown in education wrought by leftist academicians and media talking heads, many Americans presume a “well regulated militia” and “shall not be infringed” are polar opposites; that the former represents a collective right viewpoint while the latter presents the right as an individual one. Such presumptions create a false dichotomy that pits one phrase against another in an amendment where both phrases were meant to be of mutual benefit.
Consider the Second Amendment: “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 outset we must understand that the individual right to keep and bear arms is not in spite of the mention of a militia but because of it. In other words, because the militia played a key role in the Founders’ minds, and is intended to play a key role even now, the right to possess arms, with which to gather in militia, “shall not be infringed.”
FK – So when is the Breitbart militia forming up?
Why hasn’t Trump brought the troops home and activated the militias and had them hunt our real enemies who are here and always have been?
This change would subsequently bring bump stocks under the purview of the same National Firearms Act (1934) and Gun Control Act of 1968 regulations that currently govern machinegun sales and possession.
The DOJ has released a draft of the announcement of the proposed definition expansion. It is similar to numerous Democrat gun control proposals that followed the Las Vegas attack inasmuch the new definition would ban numerous firearm accessories in addition to bump stocks. The title of letter conveying the DOJ’s announcement says it all: Application of the Definition of Machinegun to “Bump Fire” Stocks and Other Similar Devices.
FK – Oh, and which party is in control of the cesspool now? The republicrats you say? Oh then it’s business as usual: Stand around with your finger in the dike until the commies(demonscat party) lie their way back into power.
FK – No. We must REPEAL the gun laws, all of them. The words ‘illegal gun’ aren’t found in the Second Amendment. Stop sounding like the cowards in the ‘No Rights that aren’t Allowed’ group.
320 million plus tool-using monkeys live in this country, with a high percentage of assholes who fully deserve to be shot. So the miracle is there aren’t many more shootings, mass or not.
The problem is the general population is a bunch of pacified morons who still think the police are there to protect them and elites who run the govt. do so for the benefit of the common sheeple.
They consider us all to be livestock. There is nothing more important to understand than that. If they forbid guns for self defense in your workplace, church, whatever it’s for their safety not yours. It’s for their liability not the future of your family, liberty, property.
One thing that’s so despicable about this is that hey zeus allegedly told his disciples to buy and carry a sword in case they needed it. Yet modern morons think they’re supposed to be helpless because of some twisted version of pacifism that’s been interjected into the religions because it makes better sheeple.
Our Founders, many of whom were ‘christian’ of one version or another, had no problem killing their fellow British subjects in their quest for Liberty and independence. Millions died in the reformation over whose sadistic god gets to burn the vast majority of humans that ever existed alive in fire forever.
The ability of the sheeple to lie to themselves and prefer to be lied to still amazes me…
We have a cancer in this country. It’s way past time to do what will be required to excise it. Trump needs to bring the troops home and start at the top.
If only enough would see the real threat:
FK – He had to make a judgement call on whether the guy who got in his truck was telling the truth. But then we don’t know what he saw that he isn’t telling.
Too many today don’t think at all about what they might do in an urgent situation. Such decisions are never easy but it’s better than being a little pathetic pacified moron.
FK – Who wants to bet it was/is another ‘sting’ either gone awry or what they intended in the first place?
Trust them? I’d be rolling on the floor is this wasn’t all so pathetic.
Whose truth will have authority?
FK – Knowledge has long been power. Most sheeple run from it because knowledge requires responsibility.
Whose version is real?
FK – The only purpose besides general madness for that many weapons in that hotel suite would be for propaganda, so the commie globalist trash can claim, “See, it’s too easy to get ‘weapons of war’ in this country.”
The Second Amendment acknowledges our natural born right to possess and use weapons of war against those who would enslave us or in our case enslave us further. Those that don’t like that don’t belong here.
The commie candidate said it wanted to disarm us.
They restrict our free speech at every opportunity.
They use eco propaganda to control every aspect of our lives.
They lie as easily as fish breathe water and expect our submission.
They are waging war on us all, our Bill of Rights and human liberty.
Why aren’t we hunting them to extinction????!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly challenged the president’s statements. In comments that may be watched here, O’Reilly noted Obama’s selective outrage because the president routinely ignores the carnage in Chicago, his adopted hometown. In the process, he demolished the president’s assertion that places with the toughest gun laws have the lowest violent crime rates.
As the Seattle Times noted, “Obama dispensed with any pretense of accommodating his critics, rebutting predicted responses in unusually blunt terms. He noted that even as he spoke, he knew counterarguments were being prepared: that what was needed was more guns, or fewer restrictions.”
FK – From the above:
“According to NBC News, UCC had considered hiring armed security for the campus. School officials ultimately rejected the idea. According to retired UCC President Joe Olson, “We thought we were a very safe campus, and having armed security officers on campus might change the culture.” One wonders how yesterday’s events might “change the culture” on the small campus.”
One wonders what kind of ‘culture’ the commies were trying to instill in their indoctrination center. I can guess.
Remember, your “Liberal” friends voted to kill you…
They’re not ‘leftists,’ ‘liberal’ or ‘progressive.’ They’re communists/globalists. They want us disarmed so we can’t kill them when enough finally wake up to the necessity of doing so.
Our Liberty is dying because of our failure to hunt the “Liberal”(commie) and globalist trash to extinction.
FK – Why do these idiots get the idea that killing average brain-dead sheeple is going to help their cause in any way?:
FK – Maybe we should wage a propaganda war against all forms of authoritarianism. The religions are certainly forms of that. Simple fact. Why these idiots think their cause can be helped by killing average brain-dead sheeple is another matter.
It’s about human nature, not about any specific religion. We have a ‘must control others’ gene that is manifested in various ways.
Modern ‘Christianity’ is so infiltrated as to be useless, if it ever was anything but another way to keep the slaves working. It’s certainly not the religion of the Founders who stepped out of their homes leaving their families behind and who went forth to do what was required. Oh for such men and women now…
If the fundie ragheads ever gain any real political ground in this country it will be because of our failure to deal properly with our domestic blood enemies who have white skin and were born here and who will pass the laws that make it possible.
WWIII may very well be fought over whose version, sub-version, subversion of whatever sadistic asshole of a god will get to burn the vast majority of humans that ever existed alive in fire forever. What a sad and disgusting commentary on the ‘human race.’ And we’re getting all excited over a lone nut who killed several morons who didn’t have enough common sense to be able to defend themselves.
The human race is still a very primitive species and we still exist in a very dark age.
