Hi again Patriots!



The Second Amendment of the United States Bill of Rights.
For some , An inalienable right as framed by the authors of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. For others a reason to freak out and express extreme emotional responses for things they don't really understand. when actually read in English it is very clear what it means.
There are two parties mentioned the militia and the people. While the amendment acknowledges the necessity of a well-armed militia, it clearly states that the right of the people, in contrast shall not be infringed. In case anyone doesn't understand what shall not be infringed means, feel free to PM me and I will explain it to you.
The police will never save you when you need them. Personal protection is your responsibility you cannot rely on anyone else to save your life , it is your life. A gun or any defensive weapon is something that you hope that you will never use in your life but if you are ever caught without it when you really need it it would be an unnecessary tragedy.

And if you are going to mention how well gun laws and confiscation worked in England and Australia then let me be the first to tell you, screw England and Australia, I will help you pack and go there right away.

I had to use MY RIGHT to defend my life & the life of my wife in a home invasion......if not for the gun, a gun would have ended my life. Thank you founding fathers for your "wording" of the 2nd Amendment.....It saved my life.....Plus 9 well placed rounds from a Glock 40 cal.

i do not think you know what infringe means in the constitution

that is just based on your choice of bs artist in the vid

Apparently neither are you.
Right to bear arms is a fundamental right.
Not the same thing.

Infringe means the same thing as deny,disparage, and abridge does in the 9th and 14th.

Everyone has it.

EVERYONE.

Inalienable


Natural and legal rights are two types of rights. Natural rights are those that are not dependent on the laws or customs of any particular culture or government, and so are universal and inalienable (they cannot be repealed or restrained by human laws). Legal rights are those bestowed onto a person by a given legal system (they can be modified, repealed, and restrained by human laws).


en.wikipedia.org...

www.law.cornell.edu...

The right of the PEOPLE, shall not be infringed.

Gun control violates this concept.

Except it's not and not everyone has it.


Can felons legally possess guns?

Don't go full murica on me. Not suggesting anything get taken away. Just making a point.
At some Point in time some men decided we have that right.

dang i figured if anybody knew this it would be you.
the definition you give is not the same as when the document was written nor was the right givin to us to save us from militias


infringe at the time simply meant to break

in other words you can regulate the arms being used but can not deny the use of arms

bare means to use or handle without help

point being is that it would be totally legal for any citizen without training to have to prove they are capable of handling weapons.

that means weapons one can carry so no tanks and jets

again the 2nd was not written to protect the citizens from militias but to arm and regulate militias by giving citizens rights that can not be broken by regulation.

these pen and teller are pompous bs artist that portray points through ridicule while reciting literal bs

Legal rights are bestowed by a person or system. It says that in your post.
Honestly I don't care to nitpick this with you.
If you say that's how it is then that's how it is.

Yep. At some point in time some men decided that some don’t have the right. Psychotic killers, for one. Unless Neo wants psychotic killers to have all the guns they want because... shall not be infringed???

Everyone does have it.

The only reason they don't is because they violate the 8th,9th,10th,and 14th amendments.

It doesn't matter one GD if people don't like a felon.

They don't lose their entire rights forever.

it is unconstitutional to remove anyone's firearms for breaking the law unless the weapon is being used to commit crime

the only reason one can be separated from their weapon legally is because they are unable to bare them

yes we have strayed away from the law on this issue along with most other amendments

Cause people like him can't or won't understand.
It is a right that was given and can be Ammended.
Not saying it should or will but it can.

Side note. Super bummed at how many people put their guns before any other issue.
The from my cold dead hands types.
I knew this morning when I saw what bigly said that that would be the thing that would cause some of his fans to turn away.
Mr 4d genius maga drain the swamp and they love him but say something against their #in guns and many can no longer support him.
It's funny
