I've been sorta delving into this, the American 'right to bear arms' and what it means. It has quite a history. What I'm reading goes right back to the War of Independence.

First three amendments

Quote:First Amendment – Establishment Clause, Free Exercise Clause; freedom of speech, of the press, and of assembly; right to petition
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Second Amendment – Militia (United States), Sovereign state, Right to keep and bear arms.
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.[60]

Third Amendment – Protection from quartering of troops.
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.

The British, in an attempt to subjugate Colonials to British rule and taxation, disarmed the colonists and ambushed the militiamen when and where they saw fit, taking no prisoners and forcing colonists to shut up or be shot (no free speech) and put up Loyalist soldiers. Culminating in the Boston Tea Party (aka Boston massacre) the War of Independence began and the two most important issues were right to free speech and right to bear arms.

My point is, if you don't learn history, you're doomed to repeat it. THIS is the reason for the 2nd Amendment. Not hunting, not to carry a gun in your purse, but to have the tools to stop tyranny. Maybe the idea is dated and technology makes it all obsolete but I don't believe that.

Little known item tucked into the obamacare law.
Maybe Feinstein will think again before she say pass it before you know what's in it.

I'm in my seventh decade on Earth. I know things.

Feinstein is not subject to common laws. She advocates gun control but hires armed guards. lol.gif

IOW words she will neither be subjected to the new laws nor be denied weapons.

It is interesting that the Supreme court has so bent the original meaning of the constitution.

The constitution was a cage to keep the Federal beast in check. The supreme court has all but torn the door off the cage.

We have two choices, put the beast down (draconian limits to the size and power of the federal government) or be eaten.

The realization of which led me to post this thread. Today the fed beast is the British crown of 1776, taxation, cronyism and disarmament of colonials lest they revolt. A medicated indoctrinated and teevee watching majority may just hand them the victory.

Don't worry about our guns. They are safe. We have heroes like Alex Jones standing up for us...

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Any of us here could have handled that fiasco a hell of a lot better than he did.
It's so apparent to me he's controlled opposition to discredit those who support the Constitution and the second amendment. coffeetime.gif

I went to infowars and read some of the comments of his subscribers. They're maybe 90% approval of his behavior. But I noticed the writing style was very similar chuckle.gif

hug.gif Hej JR

lol.gif it amazes me that anyone could say his behavior was anything but orchestrated. Piers (who just the week before acted as stupid) got to act calm and in control. Sooo transparent coffeetime.gif

When Piers and AJ "debated" I couldn't help but see they were both working on the same agenda. 13.gif
