And, "The founding fathers did not have skeet shooting in mind when they wrote the Second Amendment to the Constitution." A look at the third amendment will give you some concept as to what the founding fathers really had in mind: "No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law." They were more concerned about oppressive government than occasional nut cases. For good reason: "It was around 5 a.m. in Torrance on Thursday and police from nearby El Segundo had seen a pickup truck exit a freeway and head in the general direction of the Redbeam Avenue residence of a high-ranking Los Angeles police official, which was being guarded by a group of LAPD officers. As the vehicle approached the house, officers opened fire, unloading a barrage of bullets into the back of the truck. When the shooting stopped, they quickly realized their mistake. The truck was not a Nissan Titan, but a Toyota Tacoma. The color wasn't gray, but aqua blue. And it wasn't Dorner inside the truck, but a woman and her mother delivering copies of the Los Angeles Times...Police were on the lookout for Christopher Jordan Dorner, a disgruntled ex-cop suspected of hunting down members of the LAPD and their families in a twisted campaign of revenge." (from L.A. Times). No questions. No "come out with your hands up" Etc. Just open fire. Wrong truck type, wrong color, wrong people (two old Hispanic women, not a 300 lb black dude). Hooz, you and the rest of the liberals try to make the case that we should be able to implicitly "trust" the government into "taking care of us"; therefore all we might need are guns for sport and the threat of a single intruder. The government authorities "get it wrong" and there is a limp-wristed apology.
The southern legislators and representatives weren't concerned about the King that's just the ignorant #$%$ big lie- they were actually concerned about their SLAVE PATROLS and being able to keep them armed so they could suppress slave revolts- these were the precursors of the COOCLUCSCLAN if you didn't know
Both that truck shooting and the storming of an apartment building are incidents for which law enforcement will not be finished apologizing for and paying for. They may have had a warrant for going into that apartment building, but if they did, the judge granted it too liberally. We all knew the shooting of that truck was a foolish mistake from the instant we heard about it. Dorner killed 3 people. Sad to say, 3 people are killed often and everywhere. It is no reason to panic. Law enforcement has been in panic mode. No one needs law enforcement to be in panic mode. Do you think the answer was for the paper delivery to respond with AK 47 fire?
