What bs, you never back anything up. It's always the same old bleating sarcasm and bitter loser carping from you. You and all the rest of you oldies are done for, over. You've got nothing to contribute, and you don't have a clue that you're done for.
The world has changed, people evolve and move on. Too bad you didn't read that chapter. Night, night.

I see. So the claim you made that Americans' 2A rights to keep & bear arms were very restricted - with the NRA's active support - until recently is without any basis. Rubbish, in other words.

Check - glad we could get that cleared up.

Now, let's review here. I responded to your original post by noting your claim was interesting & asking you very simply, politely & respectfully if you could share whatever authoritative basis you had for making it - out of sincere interest.

You went straight to Defcon 5 in your response, which was essentially "f*&ck off, azzwhole." Real mature.

Now you're having a petulant melt-down - revealing yourself as just another angry smart-assed little kid who knows it all, long on smarts and short on wisdom, who hates "oldies." Kick Grandma to the curb.

But that's ok - most of us were there once also. Most of us eventually grew out if it.

In 1619, the Virginia House of Burgesses passed a law making the transfer of guns to Native Americans punishable by death. Other laws across the colonies criminalized selling or giving firearms to slaves, indentured servants, Catholics, vagrants and those who refused to swear a loyalty oath to revolutionary forces. Guns could be confiscated or kept in central locations for the defense of the community. And in the late 1700s and early 1800s, the state and federal governments conducted several arms censuses.(Imagine what the NRA would say if government officials went door to door today asking people how many guns they owned and whether they were functional.)

On the western frontier in the 19th century, to stave off violence, new towns and cities enacted laws to bar carrying guns. In fact, the typical western town had stricter gun laws than many 21st-century states. Today, four states have completely eliminated permits for handgun ownership and carrying.

The Second Amendment wasn't intended to protect the right of Americans to rise up against a tyrannical government.

This canard is repeated with disturbing frequency. The Constitution, in Article I, allows armed citizens in militias to “suppress Insurrections,” not cause them. The Constitution defines treason as “levying War” against the government in Article III, and the states can ask the federal government for assistance “against domestic Violence” under Article IV.

Our system provides peaceful means for citizens to air grievances and change policy, from the ballot box to the jury box to the right to peaceably assemble. If violence against an oppressive government were somehow countenanced in the Second Amendment, then Timothy McVeigh and Lee Harvey Oswald would have been vindicated for their heinous actions. But as constitutional scholar Roscoe Pound noted, a “legal right of the citizen to wage war on the government is something that cannot be admitted” because it would “defeat the whole Bill of Rights”— including the Second Amendment.
