    Don’t leave out the part of the Second Amendment you and others on the right have come to loathe:

    “Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues. The Court’s opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.”

    DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA v. HELLER

    Universal background checks do not violate the Second Amendment, magazine capacity restrictions do not violate the Second Amendment, and AWBs do not violate the Second Amendment.

    No one loathes this part, except for the anti-gun loons who think it means 100x more than what it actually means.
    :lol:
    Please cite the holding of the USSC case this each of these effects.
    Oh, you can't?
    Why did you lie?

    "because democrat slave owners in VA were concerned that were the right to bear arms absolutely unlimited, then their slaves had that right and might not want to stay on the democrat Plantation "


    It is a lie to say DEMOCRAT.

    But I expect conservatives to lie.

    Here is the hitorical truth;



    Democratic-Republican Party - Wikipedia



    The Democratic-Republican Party (formally called the Republican Party) was an American political party formed by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison around 1792 to oppose the centralizing policies of the new Federalist Party run by Alexander Hamilton,



    formally called the REPUBLICAN PARTY....

    The topic of the thread is the Second Amendment. Does that have anything to do with Slavery, Democrats, and Republicans?

    Now that's settled, can we get back to the Second Amendment?

    Lets's look up the term "well regulated" as it was used in the era of its writing. Lo and behold it means "IN GOOD WORKING ORDER". That's why you see clocks from that same era marked WELL REGULATED. It has nothing to do with laws. It has everything to do with being operational.

    They know all that, but just mislead, and lie to circumvent the Constitution. Same way they know that Man has little to nothing to do with so called climate change, but they want another income and wealth redistribution scheme so pretend it's "to save the planet". What drivel.

    your right,, a single man with an AR cant hold off a small company,,,thats why the second half of the 2nd come into play,,it means there could be millions of people holding ARs and that could easily hold off not just a small company but a rather large one

    and you also leave out it might not be american gov agents but foreign agents, then the natives/us would be ready with a minutes notice

    the 2nd was well thought out and well written,,,

    It wouldn't make sense for firearms to be limited to the militia.

    It wouldn't be a "right" if only the Army can have guns. Every country, even totalitarian nations, allow the Army to have guns.
    That isn't a right, and it wouldn't be in the Bill of Rights.

    In addition, in order to be called up by Unorganized Militia (non Government) you'd need to posses firearms privately. So their story fails there too.
