Even ‘Friends’ on Supreme Court Diminish Purpose of 2nd Amendment

North_Bridge_Fight_Detail
The Supreme Court seems willing to ignore how it and the Constitution it was intended to serve came to be in the first place– citizens with military weapons, a no-compromise demand to be free, and a willingness to kill at the risk of their own lives made it all possible. (The third of four engravings by Amos Doolittle from 1775, depicting the engagement at the North Bridge)

Without explaining why, seven members of the Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear the Friedman v Highland Park challenge to a Chicago suburb’s clearly unconstitutional ban of so–called “assault weapons” and their standard capacity magazines. The reason why the Democrat appointees on the court did is obvious—they’re collectivists, and willing accomplices of the gun-grabbers. The reason Republican appointees, including Chief Justice Roberts and Justices Kennedy and Alito, declined may be for that reason too, but their presumed “conservative” credentials also open the door for fair speculation on other reasons.

The two judges who disagreed with the majority and wanted to “grant cert,” Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia, issued a detailed dissent (scroll to page 12 of the Order List), but even that went light on the fundamental reason for having the Second Amendment.

“Roughly 5 million Americans own AR-style semiautomatic rifles,” the dissent observed. “The overwhelming majority of citizens who own and use such rifles do so for lawful purposes, including self-defense and target shooting. Under our precedents, that is all that is needed for citizens to have a right under the Second Amendment to keep such weapons.”

‘This seems to set the precedent for the court to assume (and limit) that 2A is for “(personal) self-defense and target shooting,’” one concerned colleague emailed me. “If the question is framed around personal protection and sporting uses, it’s a corrosive argument.”

The original Friedman petition, while heavy on ancillary reasons, did include acknowledgment that the “affected firearms ‘have some reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia.’” Still, precedent, including the Supreme Court’s ruling in Heller, emphasized that the Second Amendment focused on the “core protection”: the “right of law-abiding, responsible citizens to use arms in defense of hearth and home.” That decision also produced recognition that it is “an individual right unconnected with militia service,” and while that is true and essential , it leaves the “core protection” discussed by the Framers in legal limbo, at least for those who refuse to examine a key reality articulated in the 1939 Miller decision.

Not to put too fine a point on things, but the amendment does not specify “the security of a free Home.” Such misdirection is a major factor in why the current state of affairs bodes ill for contemporary gun owners and brings us closer to the planned obsolescence of the Second Amendment. At least that’s the goal.

The misrepresentations do not stop there. Wording from a case gun owners regard as a victory is being used against them, and that comes from the phrase everyone uses but no one seems to want to understand: “in common use at the time.”

That hardly means what’s “popular” with the sporting crowd, and if that’s what is to be the final qualifier, “We the People” will forever be denied new developments in weaponry.

In Miller, the court found a short-barrel shotgun could not be determined protected under the Second Amendment because the court had no evidence its possession had “some reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia [or] that this weapon is any part of the ordinary military equipment, or that its use could contribute to the common defense.”

That’s the key point being ducked. The function of the militia was — and is — to field citizen soldiers. And these citizens bore arms that were suitable for that purpose, “ordinary military equipment” intended to be taken into “common defense” battles. The militia came with the intent to match and best a professional military threat.

The same still holds true, even if the government is intent on neglecting its Constitutional duties. If a weapon is in common use by soldiers, it is part of that “terrible implement” clause Tench Coxe claimed as “the birthright of an American.” But by limiting arguments to “self-defense in the home,” those who presume to define our right to keep and bear arms can bypass all that.

Meanwhile, the totalitarian lobby and its media cheerleaders are overjoyed, interspersing ridicule with plans for more bans in the offing now that they perceive a green light from the High Court to grab and grab some more. What that means, of course, is with cloistered “justices” turning their backs on blatant injustice and deferring to the status quo, and with emboldened gun-grabbers primed for unlimited localized assaults, things just got a lot more dangerous for everybody in “everytown.”

That’s because some of us will not comply no matter what citizen disarmament edicts regional tyrants enact. And we have pretty good reasons to think the number of Oath Keepers in deed as well as in membership will surprise quite a few would-be local rulers.

    1. Not me, just quoting Thomas, noting his number in that cite doesn’t include AK-style firearms, etc. Right now, no one knows the actual number held in private hands, and that suits me just fine.

      1. Just like how surprised my wife will be as to what actually resides in the safe upon my demise, I believe the tyrants will also be…..quite surprised as to what is truly in private hands.

        Of course, the only way that will happen is when they try to take them away.

  1. It is OUR DUTY to remove tyranny from places of power, including decapitating the Supreme Court, President, and ANY OTHER PERSON who is threatening to destroy or erode ANY OF OUR WAYS OF LIFE.
    The movie EagleEye had it correct. I will keep my oath, as did my forefathers to protect this free land.
    Semper Fidelis

    1. I agree with you that it is our duty to remove those that serve within our governments from office for the crimes they have committed, and that include judges who did not use “Good Behaviour” while in office as constitutionally required of them.

      But it must be done constitutionally, by the “regulated” (trained as the congress requires the military to be trained) Militia (vets and those they train).

      The corrupt who serve in all branches and levels of our government must get their day in court. If the corrupt fight, or order others who do not keep their Oath to the US Constitution defend them from arrest and charges, then – as with any other criminal – force must be used in defense of constitutionally LAWFUL and required action of replacemen and all who were involved in criminal actions must also be charged and prosecuted. The US Constitution and all that is in Pursuance thereof it is the supreme LAW of our land, not the people that serve within our governments.

      People worry about the TPP, the NSA, the Patriot Act, the NDA, etc but NONE of those actions are lawful, and are “null and void”, not binding on the American people. The problem here is the non education of those who would enforce these unconsitutitonal edicts and other edicts like them which would make Traitors and *Terrorists of those enforcers as they are REQUIRED to know the US Constitution to which they are Oathbound.

      I think that it is important to realize that no one who serves within our government was ever delegated the authority to stop the people from having their own weapons manufacturers. That it was recommended that the people themselves create and maintain them as being a wise thing for us to do because of the type of problem we see today with the Traitors and Domestic Enemies of the American people, the US Constitution serving today (and the last few decades).

      George Washington, ex General, ex US President: “A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies.”

      John Adams, “A Defense of the Constitutions of the United States”: “To suppose arms in the hands of citizens, to be used at individual discretion, except in private self-defense, or by partial orders of towns, countries or districts of a state, is to demolish every constitution, and lay the laws prostrate, so that liberty can be enjoyed by no man; it is a dissolution of the government. The fundamental law of the militia is, that it be created, directed and commanded by the laws, and ever for the support of the laws.”

      Alexander Hamilton, Federalist Papers 28: “The militia is a voluntary force not associated or under the control of the States except when called out; [when called into actual service] a permanent or long standing force would be entirely different in make-up and call.”

      *28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

      That is the one thing (US Constitution) all who keep their Oath must know and understand, or how can they be keeping the Oath?

      1. those at Lexington, tried their case in the field…as the courts were corrupt and supported the KING…as do OURS…….Semper Fi

        1. Or, if we think the system has failed to protect our right to Life, Liberty & Pursuit of Happiness we can do what Thomas Jefferson suggest in the 2nd paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, and that is to No longer Consent

      2. Well said Cal. I can see absolutely no way that this is not going to come down to a confrontation. I know that “we” are many, and from many walks of life and stand willing and able to address any adversary. We must stay alert, in communication and committed. This Sovereign, Free Enterprise, Constitutional Republic MUST be retained at any cost…..there are no other acceptable alternatives.

    2. I am not a Marine, so I hope you’ll forgive my using an expression among those who are, because it fits so well here. Ooh rah!!!

  2. The Supreme Court has to protect its docket load, otherwise the lower courts could intentionally swamp it with cases. Perhaps what they want for these cases complaining about state laws is to work their way up through the State’s court system and the Supreme court would get it from the State’s highest court.

  3. Soon, the ‘true’ meaning of the 2A, will have to used for the preservation of individual freedom and liberty….as the collective’s are taught the lesson from the founding fathers, who they hate…..From their graves, this lesson that has been ignored by way too many Americans…..will be learned the hard way by them…DON’T TREAD ON ME……Semper Fi

  4. We have a government, especially at the federal level, that is filled with TRAITORS, plain and simple. Like the T-shirt I recently purchased says, “This is the government the founders warned us about.”

  5. Funny and not funny. I appreciate the clever sarcasm but we’re at war with the left and we seem to have forgotten who we are as a nation. We can’t allow these judges to overstep their role in our protection as we have. What recourse is there Sirs?

    1. B-rad….For starters, a million man and woman, open carry, march on Washington just might get their attention. Bring along a few pillows full of feathers and some buckets of tar for effect. Let them know that THE FIRST march the guns will be unloaded, but if they don’t get the message that they can move to another 190 or so other countries if they don’t like the SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND, that we will be back with TREASON CHARGES for them.

  6. Over the decades our people have been purposefully misinformed by those entrusted to educate and inform us. That is where it all began, and continues with enthusiasm to this day in the now perceived doctrine of ‘Political Correctness’.

    President Harry S. Truman said it best on September 1st, 1945, in his reply to Admiral Chester A. Nimitz, and General Douglas MacArthur when queried for a definition of that term just prior to their meeting with the Japanese delegation for the signing of the surrender of Japan:
    “Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end!”

    This is truly the enemy we face in America today, that delusional, illogical minority of a population led by others with less than the freedom of American life and values as their delusional, illogical agenda, aided, abetted, and promoted by a sick mainstream media, for which the Constitution has no effect nor purpose in serving their needs of power and domination.
    Should Americans lose their right to keep and bear arms, of ANY type, freedom is forever lost. It is that foundation, inherent in our founding documents, the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, the Constitution, inclusive of the Federalist Papers, that established our freedoms, brought us to war, and must do so again whenever our foundation is threatened. It matters not whether the threat comes from within our borders, or from without, from within our own government or from others, a freedom loving people will do what they must to preserve that freedom, without question.
    How can we begin to restore that one very basic principle? It will take no less than two decades, for it MUST START at the earliest stages of life, our children. We MUST restore the teachings of the founding of America, the reasons and causes that incited a people into action. We MUST restore the teachings of what made America great, the freedoms and respect for others that bonded a diverse population. We MUST restore the teachings of American history, why it happened, how it happened, and what makes it worth sacrificing all to maintain.
    If we fail to recognize that fact, we are doomed to repeat the histories of other nations that failed to survive.
    As for me, MOLON LABE!!!! HOKAHEY!!!

    1. If we lose the second amendment, I don’t believe our right to keep and bear arms will be lost forever, but it will require more blood to win back. If that is the case, then it is our duty to offer it. But so much blood has already been spilled. Our greater duty is to honor that blood by doing everything in our power to ensure that not another single drop is required.

  7. Excellent. We are finally coming to realize: (i) that the first thirteen words of the Second Amendment have some significance; (ii) that the Supreme Court is not a reliable guardian of the Constitution; and (iii) that the constitutional Militia are, in the final analysis, just what the Amendment declares them to be, “necessary to the security of a free State”. It would be even better, perhaps, when the NRA recognizes these truths, and stops trying to defend the Second Amendment with the watered-down arguments about personal self-defense that it seems to consider the be-all and end-all of the matter.

  8. It is very clear to me that the enemies of the Second Amendment are indeed the enemies of the Constitution itself. They will not stop at illegal legislation to remove these rights from We the People. They will create and orchestrate shootings, real or imagined. They will bribe judges. They will fund anti 2A politicians. They will buy votes. They will make payoffs. They will continue to attack our rights from every direction.
    ARMED AMERICANS are all that can STOP the rise of the New World Order, which controls 80% of the world’s wealth. They intend on raping the U.S. of its resources through such legislation as Agenda 21, which denies even private property rights of Americans.
    The moment that Americans give up their weapons is the moment that liberty dies, and we become subjects, rather than free citizens.

  9. Until the first thirteen words of the Second Amendment are treated as they ought to be–that is, as first not only in place but also in importance–we are on a very steep and slippery slope leading to effective elimination not only of the Second Amendment, but also of “a free State” entirely. The present unsatisfactory situation must be attributed in large measure to the myopic approach of the NRA and other “gun rights” organizations, which focuses on the “individual” “right of the people to keep and bear Arms”. To be sure, there is an “individual” right. But individuals, acting in isolation as individuals, cannot supply “:the security of a free State”. So, by harping on the “:individual” right, and completely disregarding the collective duty of Americans to serve in actual “well regulated Militia”, the big “gun rights” organizations are doing this country a real disservice.

    1. Dr. Vieira,
      Thank you for your comments.
      To readers here who may not yet be familiar with your works, I’d like to link two of your books which will get any reader up to speed on what the Constitution has to say about the “Militia of the several States” and how the main body of the Constitution relates to the Second Amendment. I am personally encouraging anyone who has not got these two books to do so right away. They will prove to be the most important books anyone will read at this point in America’s history.

    2. /Salute Dr. Vieira

      I agree.

      People do not understand that vets are the biggest danger to those that serve wtihin our government because they are the “organized Militia” (trained as the congress requires the US Military to train) as long as what they do is constitutional. It is why I believe they have been/still are targeted by those that serve within our governments, that the Militia has the full backing of the US Constitution and IS required by it in our nation.

      John Adams, ‘A Defense of the Constitutions of the United States’: “To suppose arms in the hands of citizens, to be used at individual discretion, except in private self-defense, or by partial orders of towns, countries or districts of a state, is to demolish every constitution, and lay the laws prostrate, so that liberty can be enjoyed by no man; it is a dissolution of the government. The fundamental law of the militia is, that it be created, directed and commanded by the laws, and ever for the support of the laws.”

      Alexander Hamilton, Federalist Papers 28: “The militia is a voluntary force not associated or under the control of the States except when called out; [when called into actual service] a permanent or long standing force would be entirely different in make-up and call.”

      By the way,
      Thank You for writing your books, greatly enjoy them, learn from them, and recommend them!

      Cal
      If there were never intended to be action to defend the Constitution from those who are domestically attempting to destroy its power and authority, why would each Oath require it of those who take the Oaths?

      Chief Tecumseh: “When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”

  10. Perhaps if we had a true pro-2nd community we could end the nonsense by bringing forth the fact that it is Article 1, Section 8, Clause 15&16 that is the law of the land, cannot be changed by legislative action, can only be changed by the Article 5 process, and are the actual last say in any argument of the “execut[ion] of the Laws of the Union”..
    Over the years those two clauses have been conspicuously ignored by the in-name-only pro-2nd community, as have the first ‘Thirteen Word’. There is this illegitimate claim that the Militia has been replaced by the national guard, and the rest of us are the “unorganized militia”. Unorganized meaning, in part, “not brought into a coherent or well-ordered whole”. I read that as incapable of forming together on a “Minute Man” notice. Not knowing where to go, what your particular duty might be, and who is in charge. In a fight for life scenario, “fodder for the cannon”. In the type of events, in which San Bernardino may be the opening salvo, there is no organization on site to thwart a massacre.
    To add to the author’s quote of Tenche Cox we should also note that he stated “Congress have no power to disarm the militia”, and are not the Militia all able-bodied men between the ages of 17-45 with all others required to adhere to the myriad of Militia statues on the books of the states. From my reading, everyone contributed in some fashion, be it to provide arms and munition, or an able body of those not able to perform, or in the case of maturity by application and action. That was, as the Founders saw it, “in common use at the time”.

    1. There are 2 related statements in the 2nd amendment. A militia is necessary for each state to defend itself and the right of people to bear arms shall not be infringed.
      If you take away the first part you still have the second part and if you did remove the militia then there is nothing that says the second part would terminate. I can only assume that at the time the framers could not envision an army as it has evolved, but it does not matter because we still have the right to bear arms and the word “infringe” had to be purposely chosen because it eliminates all and any regulation.

      1. “I can only assume that at the time the framers could not envision an army as it has evolved”

        Actually it is forbidden to have a standing (permanent) military, and the congress was to not fund them for over two years. The reason being is that military has always throughout history been used against their own people.

        US Constitution, Article I, Section 8, Clause 12: “To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years.”

        It is not that they did not envision an army as we have, they knew well what always happens, so they decided it is best if the arms and training is in the hands of the people instead of under the orders of those that serve within our governments. So they stayed with the Militias. They also put into the US Constitution when those that serve within the general government are ALLOWED to use them – for what purposes, and it is/was also in each state Constitution (Clause 15). Plus the US Constitution lays out the duties of those who serve within our governments – state and general – have TO the Militias (Clause 16).

        The idea is that the Militia (trained as the congress requires the military to be trained) can hold off an invasion while from its (already trained) ranks a military is called forth. Together they can/could defend our nation.

        That way there would/could never be the unlawful and unconstitutional “police state” we are seeing today, or “martial law”, or even the also unconstitutional and unlawful “emergency powers” called against the people.

        James Madison: “In time of actual war, great discretionary powers are constantly given to the Executive Magistrate. Constant apprehension of War, has the same tendency to render the head too large for the body. A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty. The means of defence against foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home. Among the Romans it was a standing maxim to excite a war, whenever a revolt was apprehended. Throughout all Europe, the armies kept up under the pretext of defending, have enslaved the people.”

        James Madison: “Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few… No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.”

        James Madison: “The power to declare war, including the power of judging the causes of war, is fully and exclusively vested in the legislature … the executive has no right, in any case, to decide the question, whether there is or is not cause for declaring war.”

        George Washington: “The constitution vests the power of declaring war in Congress; therefore no offensive expedition of importance can be undertaken until after they shall have deliberated upon the subject and authorized such a measure.”

  11. Glory be!!! How refreshing to be in the company of so many good men! How can I inspire ‘us’ to focus on one state at a time, with precision. How about we start here in Virginia and make some aggressive moves towards bringing our Governor’s attention to the facts stated above and confidently let him know that he MUST act now to support ‘we the people’ in materializing the militia for it is necessary and mandatory for the security of a free state, and ‘we the people’, standing before him, in real time, ARE that ‘free state’! How about the ‘us’ listed above physically sit down with the leaders of the NRA and GOA and describe to them what we are ABOUT to do here in Virginia and let them know that this IS the only way to revive the reality of American principles. And explain to them that their support, public support is NECESSARY, if they are in fact supporters of the REALITY of the 2nd Amendment! Men like Mr. Vieira can clarify with great simplicity what our Governor needs to know. And there is a KrisAnne Hall who is quite good when it comes to awakening a mind that seems to be missing a few necessary points.
    It seems that we must act offensively, aggressively NOW, before ‘they’ inspire ‘things’ to get so out of control that ‘they’ are the only ones acting with firm aggression to ‘maintain’ order.
    I volunteer what I have in ability and property to support and participate in such moves. I think that we are at our BEST when we stand together in PHYSICAL reality. What is most impressive to a tyrant? A threat! What is more threatening? A bunch of emails or letters that an aid tells him or her about? Or twenty confident, principled men and women that DEMAND to be heard and seen, face to face, who inform him or her that this group represents countless Americans who are awake and PRESENT in Spirit and Principle?!
    With warm regards, and much respect for the men above,
    Robert D.

  13. The forces arrayed against We, the People are immense in regards to their effectiveness. The corporate-owned media of the USA have immense influence upon the minds, thoughts and actions of the masses. The powers controlling those corporations appear to have profit as their prophet. If creating a country of serfs doing their masters bidding increases profits then expect the life-long indoctrination all of us are immersed within to continue relentlessly.

    A war for hearts and minds is underway and as I view the affairs within the USA at all levels; economic, social, cultural, etc. it seems obvious to me that the elites, moneyed interests, corporations and various high-level organizations and associations are winning the propaganda war and the concurrent class war.

  15. This is probably a much better decision than it appears on the surface. There are four votes on the court generally against the Second Amendment, and Kennedy and Roberts are flaky and politicized to the point that no one knows which way they may go on anything. This court cannot be relied on to uphold the Constitution, when it has trashed it so many times in the past. Until such time as a future president has the opportunity to replace some of the leftist justices, it may be better to let a bad decision of a lower court stand, rather than take a chance of the Supreme Court making it even worse.

  16. I own a few AR style weapons. I enjoy then at the range and for long distance target practice. I have used throughout my career and never once have they gone off by themselves . They have never killed by themselves either. In the service there was the job, following orders. Nothing more or less. Threats were dispatched and that was it. Now the government fears their creation. Imagine that… The only difference is the government HAS SUPPLIED most of our enemies but none of our patriots….

  17. American Citizens need to have a peaceful revolt similar to what the Citizen’s of ICELAND did.
    They changed members of there Government. They told the BANKSTERS TO EAT THEIR LOSES.Rewrote their CONSTITUTION so this could never hapen again.

    The news media in the UNITED STATES did not cover this revolt. It is obvious. AMERICANCITIZENS WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME THING.

    Web search – CITIZENS OF ICELAND REVOLT

    Is there anyone who would like to proceed on this endeavor with me ?

    SEMPER FIDELIS

    1. “American Citizens need to have a peaceful revolt similar to what the Citizen’s of ICELAND did.”

      We are NOT revolting, we are DEFENDING our legitimate government; removing the Traitors and Domestic Enemies and REPLACING them as we are constitutionally required to do.

      Abraham Lincoln: “We, the people, are the rightful masters of both congress and the courts – not to overthrow the constitution, but to overthrow men who pervert the Constitution.”

      Benjamin Franklin: “In free governments the rulers are the servants, and the people their superiors and sovereigns. For the former, therefore, to return among the latter was not to degrade but to promote them.”

      “Rewrote their CONSTITUTION so this could never hapen again.”

      I agree with the Banksters, the corporations being arrested, tried and PROSECUTED.

      I will never destroy our US Constitution, my Oath is to it, not to the people who serve and bastardize it, sell out and work from inside to destroy our lawful and legitimate way of life.

      Those who serve within our government have revolted to change our legitimate government by Treason.

      Count me out and fighting you, and them, every step of the way. I feel as if I have spent my whole life doing so, but that is worth it so that freedom lives on as it is supposed to be, not as we see it now, and used by our posterity.

      I do not support Treason, or the destruction of our US Constitution. It is so fearful to other nations that are RULED by various means that it has been under attack since its inception.

  18. Let’s look at the second amendment – it is really very simple –
    A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
    So simple! At the time, each state had a militia made up of citizens that was needed for each state to defend itself – a fact at the time. Therefore, every person in the country has the right to keep and bear arms and no one shall do anything in anyway to interfere with that right. What is wrong with the SCOTUS? It is so simple! They have added thoughts and ideas that have no bearing on the amendment. It’s like asking the court to interpret the sky is blue and getting “the founders saw the sky on a clear day and could have seen a blue sky, but it is not clear if the founders knew what blue was or how to describe it…” All Gibberish!
    The states have police and the fed was organized to run the military – so what? Each state still needs to defend itself and the right to bear arms is still with the people. There could be an uprising in the future and state might have to form militias again – who knows? Our sick government has danced all around the truth and created laws that are unconstitutional all because it is easy than trying to change the amendment. I call that corruption.

  19. The second amendment is the final enforcement clause of The Constitution of the United States of America. The Supreme Court is called “supreme” only because it is the highest division of only one of three coequal branches of government. It is the Constitution that is supreme, not the court. The militia is the people and the people are the militia. Individual ownership and storage of arms that are in parity with those that are in the possession of the government is essential to any potential activation of the enforcement clause. Never surrender your (our) weapons, under any circumstances, if at all possible.

  20. Whatever the SCOTUS Nazgul say about the Second Amendment, to me it is merely the Constitutionally codified version of my right by God’s will that I should be capable of defending my self and family. As such, I don’t give a rat’s patoot what they say – my guns are my guns until the day I die. If that is peacefully at home, it’s a blessing and my kids inherit an arsenal. If it’s fighting tyranny at my door or in the streets, so be it. My fight will be so my grandkids can still call themselves ‘free Americans’, and not serfs. I’ll die for that reason. I’m already old, so who cares? Not I, and I’ll terminate a few fascist bloodlines in the process.

    1. AMEN Brother Dave, I, too, am up their in age (65) and my life (if necessary) for my Granddaughter’s life to be lived in the freedom granted by the Constitution….I’m there with you Rev., FRONT LINE!!!

  21. Molon Labe, come and take them. Well my fellow Patriots, they already have come and taken all except the weapons in our possession. Just about every right we have has been bent, folded and mutilated and we sit back to wait for tyrants to come and take our pristine barbecue firearms, you know the ones that come out of the safe so you can parade them in front of your friends at a barbecue at your house and have never seen a range or training. How do you win a fight, offense or defense? Do you wait for the first blow to land before we take the assault on Freedom seriously enough to act like the freemen we are supposed to be? I know if we act before we are being killed we may be called criminals and hunted as felons with extreme prejudice, well that will happen anyway. Those who resist tyranny are always called criminals and those who do not follow lock step are always persecuted by tyrants and their brainless minions. Are you afraid of death so much you will hide behind the, if you just do one more thing, cross one more line, I’ll open a whole can of whoop ass on you. WHEN WILL ENOUGH BE ENOUGH????!!!

  22. Even though a well-regulated militia is necessary to the security of the free state, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, just so that everyone knows who are the People and who are the public servants.
