    The right was for the militias to be ready to protect the federal government FROM enemies both within and without. Today that function is fulfilled by the various state National Guard units, who are rightfully issued military style weapons.

    But, private citizens were never meant to have such weaponry. This does not mean that you can not own legitimate hand guns, rifles, and shot guns that are non military in nature. Nobody (including your hated liberals) is saying that you can not own such non military style weapons.

    That right was NEVER meant to help you in a violent revolt against the federal government as some of the more vehement ultra conservatives are saying.

    And when President Obama takes the oath of office today he is pledging to take Abraham Lincoln’s same position on this and protect the federal government from revolutionary terrorists, both within and without the federal government!!

    The guy who used to own the company I worked for is a survivalist. He has the 4foot by 10foot gun safe, freeze dried food, 4 wheel drive vehicle, and more. Better hair, though.

    Unless you’re a law enforcement officer…NO!

    “Prepared, like this guy? Your typical NRA member.

    “If this is what you are using as an argument for gun control, then you are doing a terrible disservice to those who are trying to rationally address the misuse of firearms. Ridicule like this is only preaching to the choir and will alienate gun owners that might otherwise agree that some restrictions should be put on guns.

    I think portraying Uncle Sam this way is a little off. It implies that gun zealotry is a mainstream position. It’s not. It’s a fringe issue with LOTS of dollars behind it, giving it disproportionate media coverage.

    I have no idea how your comment applies to my comment. Are you referring to King of Me’s comment?

    Totally agree with you that the King of Me post was asinine, and I also flagged it.
    But ‘count on Dem Libs’ is also an asinine generalization. Hopefully you can see the irony in that.

    Robert, please.

    You say: “But, private citizens were never meant to have such weaponry.”

    Those that wrote the constitution said:

    The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the U.S. from keeping their own arms. – Samuel Adams

    Notice it does not categorize “military” or “civilian” because they were one and the same.

    The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed. – Alexander Hamilton

    Notice the word “properly” which means that the people “at large” should be armed in the same manner as any opposing force that may come upon them.

    Those that hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not. – Patrick Henry

    I think that the founding fathers meant exactly that the people should have the most powerful weapons available. The latest tech, everything.

    But you and the rest of the liberals have failed in one very important aspect. You have worked hard and been successful in tearing down two important ingredients for the success of this country. And you see the results today in the wholesale violence.

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. – John Adams

    And when Obama takes that oath of office you may want to think about what it says.

    Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:—“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

    Will he honor his oath?

    You are right, this is one of the ways that the media and maybe others makes more profits by turning people into name callers, and arguments, people getting stupid with calling names, posting pix and ending up with a divided country.
    I doubt if freedom of speech was thinking of all this hostility, but I’m very thankful of it.

    He will. He is not taking everyone’s guns away, just people with obvious problems with society.
    I did like much of what you said, I’m Not anti-gun, I feel a little safer if they are in the right hands.
    but carry your argument a few steps further takes us in taken far enough would end in Nuclear bombs again. The news bombs will give total destruction.
    I know you don’t want it to get near that bad.

    Hey all of you gun runner types that want to use the 2nd amendment to justify anyone owning any kind of weapon. Just where do we draw the line?

    How about fully automatic machine guns? Or grenades and C4 explosives? How about rocket launchers, or even the weapon of choice for the Middle Eastern terrorists in the all purpose IED?

    But I will have to admit that I really do grow tired of trying to be reasonable with the ultra conservative types on these boards, your minds are totally closed to any type of reasonable compromise under any circumstances.

    So, while I have far more constructive things to do that to even begin to argue with you (things such as sleeping, and playing WOW), you will not be hearing form me anymore.

    So, you have actually won, enjoy the fruits of your victory (at least until the next mass killing at any rate)!!

    The guns and bars are the result of irrational fears generated by the same folks who prey upon the most ignorant in the population. The Republican Party has had only one thing to sell since Reagan: FEAR! (and phony economics was part of that package)

    Does the U.S. have “dangerous neighborhoods”? Yes, indeed, and the reason: too many in those neighborhoods HAVE GUNS!!!! A better regulation environment, well enforced, would do a lot more good than bars on the windows, or military weapons for “defense”.

    I have guns, in a gun safe, and rarely lock my doors. We have a minimum security prison less than a mile as the crow flies, or deer run, from our house. I’m a lot more cautious, and yes do “carry” when in the “big city” where shootings are common, and gun regulation doesn’t exist in reality, thanks to the NRA

    Prepared for what? The zombie apocalypse? Are you planning on getting in a gang fight? Drug war?

    Your 2nd requires guns for a well regulated militia, and the constitution spells out that the federal government has the power to call up that militia. Which, of course, was a common practice up through the Civil War. Hope you’re ready to be called up.
