Gun-Rights Advocates Should Fear History of Second Amendment - The Daily Beast
From the article:
Only 70 years? The Constitution dates back a little farther than that Luddite.
When the People fear the Gov't, there is Tyranny. When the Gov't fears the People, there is Freedom.
Someone famous said that.
Far to many men have died to preserve what they believe the second amendment means for XXXXXXX you to try some parlor trick to remove guns..
When are you socialists going to understand the more you try and hamper the guns the more it is believed that tyranny is the real motivation.
A gun is only as dangerous as the person having it. With all the stress on people today it is a wonder there is not more violence. It is nothing more than steel,wood and plastic. Wake up and smell the coffee, no one believes that protecting our children is the real motivation--no one not even the politicians spouting this.
The Focus in the CDZ is Civil Discourse. No Putting Down or Name Calling Other Posters.
But the SCOTUS decides what is constitutional.
I wonder how many people that bought guns today did so with the idea of jointing or starting an insurrection. People buy guns to hunt, to shoot targets, to shoot people, or to own them as a collector. But to overthrow the government? I don't think so.
This isn't about "leftists", for starters. I think this is a realist issue, and any Constitutional amendment whose net effect is hurting this country needs to be reexamined. I am no scholar, but the second amendment to the constitution IS an anachronism that has become a detriment to society. And those that support it are admirable but they are ignoring the obvious harm firearms are doing over the fictional or romantic aura they were given by our forefathers.
There are fundamental Principles behind the 2nd Amendment. Life, Liberty, the Pursuit of happiness. The defense of Life and Property. When the Cops are called in to an emergency situation, what do they show up with? When the Marines are called into a dangerous situation, what do they show up with? Bottom line, there are times and situations where neither the Cops or the Military are going to be there in time to help. Now we have people in Cities determining what is a legitimate concern for Rural, Suburban, Mountain, Swamp, Desert, remote, peoples, as if they knew one end of a scatter rake or a buck rake from another. Speak of what you know, and please stop using your voice and vote to effect others, that you have zero awareness of. It is oppression, and it is blind to reality.
How is honest citizens owning guns a detriment to society?
Someone wrote "I saw a movie where only police and military had guns. It was called "Schindler's List."
This nation asked its sovereign nicely to allow us to govern our selfs--as with most things involving tyranny this nation had to take up arms to break away from England--its called the foreign enemy.
The oath all military has to swear to --protect against all enemies both foreign and DOMESTIC. There were those who believed living under England foreign rule was better than taking up arms against them. There are those that believe that taking away arms is the right thing to do. I submit these are the same people that believed taking up arms against there sovereign was not a good idea.
Now I ask you How was this nation founded--it was founded by the GUN and it is still the only thing keeping it free--you can not trust your sovereign only keep it at bay. TYRANNY IS ALWAYS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER.
