The most ardent supporter of the Second Amendment on the USSC, Justice Scalia, clearly indicated in his decision that the amendment was not absolute and was subject to restrictions. Extremists can believe what they want, but an unfettered 2nd Amendment is a fantasy and conflicts with why of our founding fathers formed this country.We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. None of these things are possible for the one million Americans shot dead since MLK's assassination. That sad reality is due in part to the profit driven firearms industry, their paid lobbyists and a small number of private owners/sellers that are unwilling to adequately account for and secure firearms from the time they leave the factory until the day they are destroyed.

Can they stop a predator or an M1-A1 or a 500lb JDAM? No.

Can a couple of folks with bushmasters hold off a squad or two of infantry? Yeah if they know what they are doing. How long have people on the other side of the world been holding off US troops with little more than assault rifles?

And lets face it, if the Government ever deployed troops on the ground here in the US they wouldn't be able to use some of their biggest toys. You think "collateral damages" are bad news on the other side of the globe? Let them bomb a wedding on US soil...

So you are saying if some backwoods militia in West Virginia starts killing cops, which escalates to shooting SWAT, which escalates into shooting army/national guard types....the government is just going to give up and say "FUG IT! Those guys are tough!".

Hell no they are going to get blown out of their little mobile homes.

If deer were able to shoot back at you we would have no NRA.

Yes because the NRA was established for hunters.

I'm curious what that race-baiting picture is about on the bottom.

Might want to check with the Soviets about this little shitstorm they got themselves into in Afghanistan in the 80s

Or maybe the US Military and the same hornets nest they kicked over in various parts of the middle and far east over the last 50 years.

Also read your Sun Tzu. Especially the parts about where to confront your enemy with particular attention to the notion of "Deadly Ground".

Anyone who thinks that the US mil could just fly some A10s and Apaches overhead and park an M1A1 on the corner of Main & Market in Anytown, USA and quell a revolution is forgetting their history. The Soviets couldn't stop their Union from breaking down and they had what was at the time either the most or second most advanced military in the world. History is replete with examples of how smaller less technically advanced armies held off and in some cases were victorious against larger better equipped forces.

Also you cant assume that the WV Air Guard would simply fall in lock step with the order to blast their neighbors into oblivion.

i guess the thing that troubles me is usually those that lean left, seem to have this very odd or almost naive trust of govt. and they don't even mind if the govt is hypocritical or condescending. they just trust them.

i don't mind smarter more common sense gun laws. but thats as far as it needs to go.

Good stuff.

Have your lackey toss it out there and see how much of a poo storm it would cause....tell him to say that's not what it really meant.

Classic.
