    The second amendment “was” the right to bear arms….or is Wiley right ? either way arming bears sounds more dangerous!

    I’ve long argued that deer have the significant advantage, what with those pointy head things they have on their heads. It’s only fair that bears should be allowed to even the playing field with full-auto rifles and armor piercing explosive rounds. It’s why I also advocate selling tanks to anyone who wants to fish for salmon. And hand grenades for those disadvantaged paint ball players.

    The NRA (world’s largest terrorist organization) is all for this development; more guns sold by the manufacturers. Grizzly with an AR-15 – Kewl !!!

    Actually it’s not. It’s quite clear and concise. What we have here is the right to keep and arm bears, not keep and bear arms.

    Bears are naturally armed . . . they carry them in their mouths and on the ends of their (fingers and ?) toes.

    This always escalates so fast. Although you’re correct that the irony is that someone’s finally taking UMBRAGE at the lying — not the lying itself, in which you bible-denying climate-change proponents are always engaged.

    How many so called hunters would go hunting if they knew that the prey could shoot back. Go bears Go.

    Due to the widespread escalation of hostilities on the internet, the Right to Free Speech is being reviewed, and may be limited only to properly licensed members of the press.Because that certainly must be what the Founders intended.

    If the bears were there before “the White Man”, surely they have the right to representation?

    The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting and everything to do about protection from over reaching government and self protection.

    @ragtime78rpmIt’s always funny how people can think scientists lie en mass, but politicians and AstroTurf industry-funded agencies like The Heartland Institute are to be relied on for truth (at least when their version of the truth is more comfortable, and doesn’t require changing). Remember Heartland? The folks paid by Philip Morris back in the 90s to try to paint smoking as harmless? They did manage to “cloud” the issue with a flood of misinformation, but in the end, decades of research and science won out. And for the past 15 years, Heartland and a flotilla of Exxon and Koch brothers funded organizations have been working hard to create the same misinformation on climate change, despite the peer-reviewed science being pretty clear 30 years ago, and having largely turned to the questions of how bad will it be, how fast, and what can we do to mitigate the impacts?

    @GeeMan. Gee, man, at one time it was “settled science” that heavier than air flight was impossible. Then “settled science” " proved" faster than sound flight was impossible.Nobody, and I mean nobody argues for pollution yet people are called deniers and flat earthers for refusing to accept AGW.I live in the North East corner of Kansas, an area called “The Glacial Hills” because these hills were deposited by a glacier over 10,000 years ago by the glacier that dug the Missouri River bed.Where’s my glacier and why did it melt?Climate changes, always.

    The Bill of Rights is full of language that’s open to interpretation because people back then weren’t in agreement as to what they wanted any more than people are today. Some certainly saw the economic benefits of a volunteer militia over a standing army. Others saw firearms as essential to hunting and self protection in a country that was almost entirely rural (if not actually frontier). Others, no doubt, wanted to facilitate armed insurrection (as illegal as that might be). They read that amendment, saw in it what they wanted, and voted it in.

    In the summer, I support everyone’s right to wear sleeveless tank tops because we have the right to keep and bare arms.

    In the winter, I still wear short sleeved shirts. It is warm here and my arms are short. I cannot cover them because I do not have a permit to carry concealed small arms.

    (ba dump ching) I’ll be here all week. Try the scallopini. Remember to tip your wait person.

    Can we all just take a moment here to appreciate the delicious irony of a bible-thumping climate-change denier taking umbrage at someone ELSE for lying?

    @Nabuquduriuzhur’s bible-thumping tendencies and his denial of climate change are far from the worst examples in his notorious list of fabrications.

    I agree that the profit motive is excellent. You call it “Greed is good”, though no businessman ever has except in movies.

    I contrast that with the “Occupy….” Anything movement where envy is justified.

    The thoughts and reasoning behind the 2nd. amendment were neither obtuse nor contradictory. The founder’s views are clearly explained in the writings of the day. Here are two examples for those of you who get your history from the evening news, rather than from study.

    “We established however some, although not all its [self-government] important principles . The constitutions of most of our States assert, that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves, in all cases to which they think themselves competent, (as in electing their functionaries executive and legislative, and deciding by a jury of themselves, in all judiciary cases in which any fact is involved,) or they may act by representatives, freely and equally chosen; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed.” — Thomas Jefferson“Whereas, to preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them; nor does it follow from this, that all promiscuously must go into actual service on every occasion. The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly anti-republican principle; and when we see many men disposed to practice upon it, whenever they can prevail, no wonder true republicans are for carefully guarding against it.” — Richard Henry Lee
