But I'd know my true friends.
Check the date on this...
Libs are st00pid.

The truth though is that the intent was to have citizens armed with the same weaponry that would likely be used against them by a tyrannical government. So it doesn’t matter what arms were around then versus now ... as a free man and a citizen of this country, I should have access to the same arms used by my government.
The founders were quite aware of developments going on with the guns of 1790. Breechloaders, repeaters etc.
And nothing built today will duplicate the power of a .61, .63 or .766 calibre pistol of the period. The handguns being built today are minimal compared to those bad boys. Very hard to survive.
The intent of the 2A was to create an army that was well armed and well trained in their own weapons.
wait - isn’t this a thread about Sandra Fluke?
It is funny but it is easy to pick on stupid children.
I will go along with banning high capacity magazines when we ban high speed internet connections. See ya on dialup Douche.
“The intent of the 2A was to create an army that was well armed and well trained in their own weapons.”
The intent was so that we would remain free.
“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 #46 at 243-244)
“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States” (Noah Webster in `An Examination into the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution’, 1787, a pamphlet aimed at swaying Pennsylvania toward ratification, in Paul Ford, ed., Pamphlets on the Constitution of the United States, at 56(New York, 1888))
“As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms.” (Tench Coxe in `Remarks on the First Part of the Amendments to the Federal Constitution’ under the Pseudonym `A Pennsylvanian’ in the Philadelphia Federal Gazette, June 18, 1789 at 2 col. 1)
“Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American... The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state government, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people” (Tench Coxe, Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788)
“I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for few public officials.” (George Mason, 3 Elliot, Debates at 425-426)
And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms....The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants” (Thomas Jefferson in a letter to William S. Smith in 1787. Taken from Jefferson, On Democracy 20, S. Padover ed., 1939)
He’s a liberal because the only chicks he can score with are the scrawny Vegans who don’t shave anything but their....well...”Brazillian parts.”
Wow. I wonder if Cuomo knows that? Apparently, he thinks the Second Amendment was included to make deer hunters happy.
Does he know that when the government comes for us, for whatever reason (disagreeing with their ideology), THEY will have assault weapons? Has anybody forgotten the picture of the gun in the face of little Elian Gonzales — a CHILD? That really happened; it’ll happen again.
I think that Douchenozzle’s problems may stem from what he “eats”. Or sucks on. Or whatever ...
Here’s the thing: critics of armed citizens say that it will avail them naught in the face of a military which sides with a tyrannical government. The fact is, in the event of a civil uprising, many or most members of the military would be on the side of the liberty-seeking rebels (that would be us) and against the tyrants like Obama and the Obamatons. Even if the military was split, the liberty-lovers private citizens, who have a lot more guns, would have a decided advantage against the statist citizens who don’t have nearly as many.
I pray you are right. I’ve about given up hope that many would do the right thing when the SHTF. We’ve been bamboozled and sold down the river by people we trusted so many times in the past.
There’s Boehner. Look what Roberts did to alter the freedom in the country. The Oathkeepers said they’d be there when it counted, but are they?
