Don't count on it clearly all us pro gun people clearly don't know what we are talking about.
Clearly the states, and the federal government can dictate our rights how ever they "feel" like it.
Key word there---FEEL.
IMO, best way to make sure all of these "ban" bills become null and void is to beat the anti-gunners in a way that ends their agenda, both legally and
Education of the populace on guns, their function, the differences between them, etc; that way they know when they are being fed a line of bull.
Education of the populace on their agenda, its history, and the fact it is built on lies and misinfo. Education of the populace on current gun laws,
why there are already more than we need, and the fact that all of the "feel good" things like background checks are already on the books waiting to be
enforced properly. Not spouting devisive rhetoric like "revolution" and "civil war" when the anti-gunners are already trying to portray us as "crazy"
Beyond that . . . vote out all anti-gunner state reps and make sure the state constitutions have clear language mirroring the 2nd and specifically
highlighting the "individual" rights component of bearing arms.
Example: Arizona State Constitution Article II
Section 26. The right of the individual citizen to bear arms in defense of himself or the state shall not be impaired, but nothing in this section
shall be construed as authorizing individuals or corporations to organize, maintain, or employ an armed body of men.
I'd like stronger language than impaired, but that is pretty straight forward. Unfortunately, not all state constitutions are that way or even have a
"bearing arms" provision.
Example: Colorado State Constitution Article II
Section 13. Right to bear arms. The right of no person to keep and bear arms in defense of his home, person and property, or in aid of the civil
power when thereto legally summoned, shall be called in question; but nothing herein contained shall be construed to justify the practice of carrying
Heck . . . Colorado doesn't even post a copy of their constitution on their website, I had to go to a law reference site. Can Colorado citizen's
claim that the current restrictions go against the state constitution? Not sure. "Called into question" is pretty vague language and they didn't ban
firearms, just restricted. It even forbids conceal carry. It doesn't even look like they have open carry, but you can apply for a conceal permit
with the sherriff.
Then there is California:
No Provision . . . none
No Provision . . . none
