    When the framers composed the 2nd amendment, their intent was not to say "you have the right to shoot a duck or deer.".... They didn't even intend it to mean, " you have the right to defend yourself against some thug intending to steal your horse, or assault you or your family".. Their intent was, " you have the right to protect yourself from an overbearing government's tryanny". That is what the revolution was all about. No-one was dissatisfied with hunting rules or lack of police protection. It was all about the right to personal freedoms. Back in the time our framers wrote the 2nd amendment, federal armies used single shot muzzle loading rifles and pistols. Common citizens had the right to own the very same guns. I would argue that the framers intended citizens to have the same weapons available to the army as a way to keep the balance of power in check. Over the years the disparity in weaponry between the federal army and common citizens has gotten farther and farther apart to the point where today our army has armed jet aircraft, guided missiles and armed drones, while the population is fighting its last breath for the right to keep semi automatic rifles. This happened slowly over time with political propaganda a fear mongering in a continued attempt by the empowered FEW to control the helpless many. I'm betting if Washington, Adams, and Jefferson were alive today, they would think that the fact that a citizen of the USA is not permitted to own an armed F14 Tomcat, that would constitute an infringement on the 2nd amendment. We have lost much of the true intent of the 2nd amendment over the 200 years since it was enacted. I suggest we draw a line in the sand here before it's completely gone.

    gunner.... He doesn't know the difference between needs and rights, nor clips and magazine .... To him, a want is an entitlement and a right is a privilege granted us by the administration in power at the time....a clip is something he gets at the hair salon every week, and when he has magazine in his hands (at the salon) it clearly has "The New Yorker" on it.....you're laughing? I'll bet money on it...and I don't gamble....

    Why we don't need the 2nd Amendment anymore

    The cops usually show up in time time to tape off the crime scene , take the photos, and trace the chalk body imprint on the floor or street. .... And even if you live in a metro area the response time is often more than 15 minutes. The encounter usually takes less than 2 minutes in a home invasion. Less in a street situation. Your living in fantasyland.

    Yes I'm religious... The same religion and moral codes our framers so bravely fought for. But before you make any more half witted assertions you might question the kap'n on his views on late term abortions. I suspect hearing his answer you won't be so quick to jump to his defense. That is because the antigun liberals are all for protecting children who might be killed accidentally by guns or at the hands of the mentally defected individuals while applauding millions of children who are deliberately killed legally each year as a woman's right of choice....strange isn't it: righteous about blaming the gun for a few thousand deaths each year while at the same time protecting the virtues of those responsible for several million deaths. Hypocritical? What God do you pray to? What would He/She say about it?
