    By the way, the neat part of this argument is that additive manufacturing techniques are going to make it completely moot in about a decade, if not sooner. :woohoo:

    I was under the impression that the founders were against having a standing army. That the 2nd amendment exists so that the state can summon a militia in times of need.

    Muskets for all; you have to be able to load and shoot in under a minute, to be well regulated.

    As is still the case. And it’s true... they were against a standing army. But we have one now. Which makes an armed citizenry all the more important, to maintain our freedom.

    We have to fear our men and women in the military? That's a different message than what we might normally hear from those on the right.

    Like your avatar, it puts the lie to the other lefties here who are trying to hide the fact they are communists/marxists.

    so they can summon an armed militia in times of need, not mention that there would be less need to summon an already armed populace...and regardless of the founders/framers intentions concerning a standing army they made sure their intentions of an armed populace were included in the constitution.

    We should have Standing Army tax rates; but it goes against right wing fantasy.
