Skip to comments.How much do you know about the Second Amendment? A quiz.
Posted on 02/01/2013 1:26:00 PM PST by shove_it
After decades of inactivity, the US Supreme Court in 2008 began a major reexamination of the scope of the right to keep and bear arms, an issue that has long ignited passionate debate and prompted powerful political lobbying.
How well do you understand this constitutional evolution? Take our quiz to test your knowledge.

I heard it only protects my right to hunt, and only if I am in the military, militia.
gabby told me that, she is soooo brave...
Right on. Those are the ones I missed.
You answered 12 of 15 questions correctly for a total score of 80%.\
Questions 10-12 are bogus man!
Me too!! since when is probably not an answer!!!
I got 12/15........
Good lord that was slanted crap.
Though I will say one question I got wrong because I assumed a district court was at least marginally competent on firearms. I should have known better.
Missed three also.
Normally I’d pass that on to buddies, but those vermin don’t deserve any extra hits as they benefit from them.
I got to the question about the Bushmaster and said FUCSM...I’m not playing your stupid little game anymore.
I thought it was a silly test. I didn’t even bother finishing it. Those questions with answers like:
c) probably not
d) impossible to know
were just stupid, IMO. A waste of time.
This is the mentality of the propaganda we’re up against.
When we ALL miss the same 3 questions, that is proof that the quiz is BS.
14 out of 15 and I don’t even own a gun.....New Jersey ya see.
Ohhhh. You know how they think up there in Blue Land better than us flyover folks.
13 & 2. Questions 10 & 11 were definitely bogus. Also, how are “Probably not” and “Impossible at this point to know” not the same for Q10?
There should be a fine for propagating falsehoods like this.
You better get a gun.
Adam Lanza, who shot and killed 20 students and six staff at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., after shooting and killing his mother on Dec. 14, 2012. He also took his own life.
I thought it was proven that Adam Lamza did not use a Bushmaster - that it was in the trunk of his car.
“What does it matter now”? - ala Clinton
Words mean things. They are perfectly clear and have NOT evolved!
The quiz is revisionist BS.
I got them all right and I only had to guess on one. I’ve been hammering the political boards for the last couple of months and have done a lot of research.
I "missed" two, but only because I recognized the usual mis-interpretation of the Miller decision. The Miller Court remanded the case because they lacked any information regarding the usefulness of a short-barreled shotgun, not because they decided anything about such a gun.
I sent them a comment pointing this out and disagreeing with their notion that the Second Amendment means only what the Supreme Court says it means.
I pointed out that if fighter jets had existed at the time of the American Revolution, that our Founders would have obtained anti-aircraft rocket launchers however they could, and that it would have been unthinkable for them to have failed to protect the keeping or bearing of such arms for future use against a tyrannical government.
That was the original report and was changed the next day. I watched the video on TV as they were removing the weapons from the trunk of the car they identified as his mothers. It clearly showed them removing a shot gun.
You have no idea how difficult it is to get a handgun permit here in NJ for home defense. Forget about CC. Never happen.
The municipality police chief has final approval. They can hold it indefinitely. Someone I'm acquainted with was actually denied a permit because renters on an adjacent property of his were involved in a domestic dispute.
My home defense weapon.
My normal response to anyone spouting that crap is that the most powerful military weapon of the time was not unlawful for a civilian to own. If you had the money or could bring a group of investors together you could build, equip and deploy a Ship of the Line. Up until WW1 it was very common for individuals to field Company and larger size military units along with their armament.
CSM: Liberal organization. Nothing Christian about them.
Wow, sorta like a push-poll, a push-quiz!
Funny, I don’t find anything “Christian” or much less “science” about this clown act.
Maybe they could contract Penn Jilette and Ted Nugent to create a quiz that would totally scald the clowns at christian science poverty law center inc., and give a few of us FReepers, Bronco Soretero Brotherhood, and the majority of the low info parasite class a good run...
BTW ... Have you hugged your sports utility rifle today?
COMMUNIST science monitor.
what a slant.
not worth the effort.
Penn and Teller are giving the militia myth.
I must have mirrored your answers. I like one of their correct answers — “Probably not.”
My take was "the comma" separated the need to protect the citizens of the republic from the standing army in P&T's video.
Then again, maybe Sammy Hagar should write the quiz, or this guy.
Free men don't ask permission.
I guess I'm not the only know-nothing country boy here.
My AR's and Jeep get a hug everyday.
I, um, missed the same three. Maybe I shoulda sat next to Archy or Squantos.
Can't escape the bias.
Move. You can get on over here to Eastern NM / West TX and you would fit right in.
I’m sure it’s all just a coincidence. LOL
Nah! I'm too used to paying the highest property tax rate in the country.
Not recommended bro.
Gunner said that the last time he sat between them they pinched his wee butt black and blue...... I think he even dated Archy for a few weeks.......
I was okay with it until they asked what rifles were associated with what sniper attacks. Just what part of the second am. Did that cover????
Come on over to Pennsylvania. You can walk into most county sherrifs offices and leave the same afternoon with a concealed carry permit. They only cost $19.95 and they're good for five years. No classes, no tests, no hassle. If you're smart enough to put $19.95 together, you're trustworthy enough to carry concealed.
If you've got the money, Pennsylvania trusts it's citizens with full automatic weapons. NO magazine restrictions, no bullet restrictions.
Can you not have a pistol/long gun in your own house?
Just fer my Buddy Eaker !.....:o)
Yer Mine !
They asked if the 2nd guaranteed our rights, not whether some court limited them.
Not clear at this time is stupid.
