From the D&C (Grace Knaak): "How the Second Amendment to the Constitution is written:“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

How it is interpreted by avid gun rights proponents: Congress shall make no law abridging any individual’s right to own any gun(s) without limits as to how many or their potential for destruction.

Oh, and by the way, gun advocates think the intent of this amendment is so the gun owner can shoot at federal officials intent on taking away their guns. Really?"

Really, Grace? The second amendment DOES say that governemnt officals CANNOT take away those guns (that's what the words "shall not be infringed" mean). Looks like you haven't bothered learning how to read over the past 72 years. Well, no sense learning now, as you can't teach an old dog new tricks.

Would you want to bet that Ms.Knaak is a diehard dem and voted for Obama? This is how the left try to brainwash the masses,one little bit at the time.

I think these liberal tree huggers / Emily Good types need to spend a night listening to the Jungle Scanner and then reconsider how they feel about sitting home unarmed. Wow Google says she lives in Greece too.
