    Motherfucking horse-shit. Given that asinine rational, the gubmint is empowered to do whatever the fuck they want under the guise of "promoting the general welfare".

    God you people are fucking stupid.

    Sorry but "general welfare" means only what the tea party says it means.

    "Promote" does NOT equal "provide".

    Promoting the general welfare is not the same as providing the general welfare.

    Maybe not. But it does mean the same as aiding and assisting the general welfare.

    The rights defined and protected by the Constitution are individual rights not collective rights.

    I guess the founders didn't know the difference between singular and plural?
    Should say the right of PERSONS to keep and bear arms, shouldn't it?
