A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
It is quite clear the intent is the ‘security of a free state’ meaning keeping the Feds off our backs when they become a completely despotic government as today.
Then add the 10th and it’s clear why the democrats are so set on toning these down.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States, respectively, or to the people
It is clear what the Democrat Party is trying to dispell once and for all these pertinent elements of our Founding Fathers clear outline toward retaining our freedom. As many have correctly alluded rather than separating ourselves from the US Constitution as an outmoded document we need to return to it for it has been completely nullified today.
FINALLY ! Somebody Who Gets It ! WHO ? Wants To Take Guns Away From Law Abiding Americans ? DEMOCRATS-LIBERALS ! YEAH ! The Same Liberal Democrat Appointed Judges Who Constantly Throw Out or Down Grade Murders,Rape & Robbing. WHO ? Is Doing Most of the Murder,Rape & Robbing ? Blacks & Minorities !

HAha A LIBERAL MIND IS A SICK,PERVERSE & DEMENTED MIND & If Good People Allow Them They Will Take Away Everything Our For-Fathers have Given Us .
Get off this board. But since you brought it up the innocent are getting slaughtered because of lack of concern, solutions or enforcement. The end result will be a loss of your rights. Or maybe you dont care that children are shot on the streets daily.
About 40 percent of the guns in circulation in this country were bought WITHOUT a background check and received on the spot. Does that make any sense at all in an increasingly trigger-happy society?
There are ways to get the most lethal weapons off the streets while not trampling on the Second Amendment. Everybody, or most everything, recognizes the right of every American to have some firepower around if needed. But it appears we need more people to simply acknowledge they don't need a closet full of AK-47s to feel safe.
Banning AR-15 and large capacity clips will not do a thing about gun violence. Why can't people understand that by banning these weapons all you do is take them away from law abiding citizens who want them to protect themselves. We need better gun control, but not by banning certain weapons. We need to have background checks for all who want to purchase and we need to check for mental illness in the household. Do I know how we can do this? No, But I can assure you banning weapons will not help. Criminals will always be able to buy weapons off the streets and there is not much that can be done about that. All we can do is try to keep the weapons out of mentally unstable people hands by having better guidelines to follow when selling weapons. Just my two cents
Please take your politics to another board, my patience with political opinions on our board is limited. No one here has asked for your thoughts on politics, the constitution, etc. Take it elsewhere.
Couldn't disagree with you more, respectively. The 2nd amendment was created to keep any American from being a slave of the federal government. If anything Militias helped free slaves and militias only exhisted because of the 2nd amendment. Go read about John Brown 05-09-1800.
I don't agree with your opinion that the 2nd amendment was to keep white slave masters in power like anteatertongue73 mentions.
I believe the 2nd Amendment was to protect our freedoms of the constitution. To protect ourselves from an elected group who's intent is to abuse their power and take control over the peoples' freedoms. It was a freedom and right for all people to fight and protect our freedoms written in our Constitution.. .
There are some on this mb that would give our country away. We have the right to take our country back from the tyranist who are giving our jobs away and undermining our society with poverty. It did not say in the constitution that we should be the worlds police. It did not say we need a new world order. Our military was to preserve our freedoms.Not theirs. History can repeat itself like Germany, first disarming the people... Other nations have fallen and ours can too. China and Russia and the Muslim world are waiting anxiously to take us out. Some are so schooled by liberals, they really don't know what truth is or reality. I Agee FORETHERUN
