Skip to comments."Time for Leagues to Do Something About Players With Guns" (Abolish 2nd amendment)
Posted on 12/01/2008 4:47:31 PM PST by GreaterSwiss
Now, let's not start screaming about the Second Amendment. To begin with, the amendment should be abolished -- a sensible interpretation of the amendment is that it was written to allow the people to raise a militia for protection and to hunt for food. Clearly no one needs to raise a militia these days, and those who hunt for a living can be licensed to do so.
It would be nice if President-elect Obama had the time to focus his energies on repeal of the Second Amendment, but he first has to deal with a broken economy and the incredibly wrong-headed war started by his predecessor. What's more, the issue of gun rights causes almost as much screaming from the right as abortion rights, the irony being that those yelling the loudest about the right to life are usually those yelling almost as loud about their right to carry weapons that kill.

Does this liberal moron, who makes Franken seems like a mental giant, get paid for this anti-American, Obama-pandering swill ???
I say abolish the 1st amendment that gives them the freedom to publish this nonsense. /s
translation: please be good lil slaves ad turn in your guns so that the government slave masters don’t need to get hurt taking all that is rightfully yours.
This idiot sportswriter Feinstein sounds like he’s trying to outdo idiot Olberman.
Yo! Feinstein. Who’s going to disarm me? You?
I canceled my subscription to the Washington Post last week. I’m so happy.
I must have missed the "hunt for food" part?
"Clearly no one needs to raise a militia these days,"
Oh really? Says who?
"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain their right to keep and bear arms is as a last resort to protect themselves against tyranny in government." --Thomas Jefferson, Draft Virginia Constitution (1776)
"Americans have the right and advantage of being armed - unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." --James Madison, The Federalist Papers No. 46
After the last election, the need for a militia has become very real.
Leagues have NO business meddling in the laws of a state. Leagues also have NO business violating the constitutional rights of people within their organizations, imho.
The league should expel that idiot because he broke the law of the state he was in and **had been briefed on** previously. IOW, he had no excuse.
How about we rid the NFL of thugs? I realize that would be about half the league but it is past time we quit pretending. Then take all those thugs and place Mr Fienstein among them in their home turf without a weapon.
It is just this sort of thinking that clearly demonstrates that we may need to raise a militia very soon. Not just ot protect us form the foreign aggressor, but also from the enemy within that tyrannize us by taking away our guns and then...?
The irony of a writer railing against one of the 10 amendments that make up the Bill of Rights is delicious.
...what about the VERY LAX procedures on licensing the operations of vehicles that can [and do] kill more citizens more frequently than guns?
Bump for later.
