So these people NEED guns because it's in the Constitution. It's law, right?
So if a law gets passed banning guns, they should fork them over as law abiding citizens. If they don't, they are now criminals in possession of
So it's not really about the Constitution at all, it's about fear.
For some odd reason, I feel compelled to respond to the lunacy of DaTroof's remark quoted above...
You are absolutely incorrect in everything that you stated here, DaTroof. The Constitution for the United States of America is and will always be the
highest law of the land. While nationals of foreign countries take oaths of allegiance to king, queen or dictator, it is to the Constitution alone
that the American swears allegiance when donning the uniform of office and taking up the responsibilities of that office.
If a law gets passed banning guns (in America), we law abiding citizens SHOULD NOT fork over our guns. To do so is to acknowledge the authority of a
decision which is Inferior to the Law as set forth in the Constitution.
You state that we would be "criminals in possession of deadly weapons" if we don't comply with such decisions (which you call "laws"). You are
wrong for the mere fact that any and all such decisions to disarm the public are Unconstitutional and, therefor, unlawful within themselves.
In the end, DaTroof, this issue has nothing to do with either the Constitution or "fear". It has everything to do with the basic human right to be
adequately equipped to defend one's life, the lives of loved ones, and all of that which is ours by right and heritage, against attack and
Let's put it into simple terms so that even the feeble of mind can comprehend...
If a bear is charging down upon you, or maybe a cougar or rabid dog, you have the right to defend yourself against that animal. In fact, you have the
right to defend yourself against any predatory or otherwise hostile animal which you may encounter. Well, like it or not science has proven without a
shadow of doubt that humans are animals too. And yes, the human animal can be predatory, hostile and violent as well, some even more so than our
counterparts which walk on all fours and wear coats of fur.
The law of the jungle applies today, as it always has... survival of the fittest, by whatever means possible... even by the gun.
