    In a few month's time, I will be legally carrying a firearm. As a resident of Illinois I represent the last holdout in our entire 57 state nation.

    I will be constantly faced with downsides. For that I have been trained. 16 fucking hours of it.

    And I pray that a single upside will never present itself.

    But if it should...

    It makes sense, except for the fact that the U.S. Supreme Court says it doesn't.

    And the fact that it is either a stupid misunderstanding of American history or an ideologically based LIE.

    By the balls, huh?

    Is that why the Obama regime can simply write any new laws they want?

    Face it, the NRA is about to get flanked politically as it's strategy was always based on controlling Congress, and now that Congress is mentally emasculated and unable to oppose Obama using its primary weapon; defunding measures they do not like.

    The NRA has long ignored anything outside its narrow range of concerns, and now is going to get spanked by Executive Orders after the 2014 elections.

    The 2015 to 2016 calendar is going to have lots of very bad things on it unless the Tea Party can gain control of the House.

    Hilarious. You just said in this thread that we would not have to worry about our guns even if there were no 2nd amendment.

    Now you're warning how Obammy is going to executive order the NRA out of existence. Make up your mind which is it?

    Dude, stop being so fucking stupid.

    I said, "The Constitution itself says that these rights are not granted but enumerated."

    That does not mean that Obama cant go after our guns, dumbass, but only that he cannot do it legitimately and according to the Constitution.

    You seem to assume that anything Obama does is by definition legal and legit. No, they guy is turning himself into a dictator.
