United States Constitution Amendment II(1791)

"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."

Looks to me like it is legal to form a militia as long as no illegal activity is involved.

Get it straight! The Constitution guarantees the right of the federal government to maintain and arm a standing army! It says nothing about the general public! The general public needs to be disarmed! What about Sandy Hook! How many precious children have to die before you gun nuts realize you don't have any right to be armed!

You are obiviously are a supporter of the current POTUS. So we will listen to you about as much as we do him. If you will read your constitution you will find that our army is not to be used on our soil against us. We have a right to bear arms to protect ourselves. Granted Sandy hook was a very bad. But one person shouldn't say that good people can't have guns.

The 18th century definition of "tyrannical government" is no representation in day-to-day government business (i.e., the british monarchy).

The 21st century definition of "tyrannical government" is when the majority of voters democratically elect the candidates you don't like.

This is what is commonly referred to as the "entitlement mentality". When the hillbillies (known experts on everything) gather together over the gun display cases at Wal-Mart and they are talking the big talk that you have heard so often before. Obama is a homosexual loving liberal demon who is coming after the guns and bibles. The hillbillies want to "take back America" because America belongs exclusively to old, bloated, white Christian heterosexual men. White men own America, they are entitled to it, not Obama.

This is the picture of the modern-day American "patriot".

You teabagger morons lecture the Constitution all day long, but for some strange, unfathomable reason you have absolutely no clue what "self-government" is all about. Isn't it ironic that you people are extolling the Constitution, and yet the Constitution itself is what defines the very system of federal government that you want to overthrow?

YAY FOR CIVIL WAR!! Take over America and bring us back to the 50's!

You teabag morons wave your "Don't tread on me" revolutionary war flags, you want civil war so badly. Well, here's the deal, morons. You are the ones who are trying to impose your will on us, because you are the ones who hate freedom. Not the other way around.

I do not want civil war like you do.

I do not want to take down the government like you do.

I do not want to destroy America like you do.

If you and your drunkard redneck hunting buddies did not win an election it is because you are not in the majority anymore. That is how our Constitution works, you freaking idiots. I know this might not make sense to most of you because you are too stupid to figure it out.

The reality is that you losers thump the Constitution the same way you thump your bibles, you wave the document in everyones face but you have absolutely no clue what the actual document is about. You have composed all of your intellectual beliefs based entirely on your own imagination, superstition and anecdotal hillbilly hearsay.

When I was a kid my parents taught me about values. One of those lessons was that life ain't fair. So maybe some things aren't the way that I want them to be. Of course that will happen because you can't get things your way all the time so you might as well quit complaining about it. This is one of the life lessons that my parents taught me growing up, and I wish all you self-entitled, loser, hillbilly "patriots" would get the message and quit bothering the rest of us.

Do you seriously think that I want to hear the same Obama hillbilly talking points every single time I go into wal-mart? Shut the hell up already.

It's funny how it took a black man for people to realize exactly how corrupt government can be. People have so quickly forgotten (ignore/overlook) the fact that a few years ago Bush was going off and killing a million people for pretty much no reason at all. We pre-emtively invaded a sovereign nation that had done nothing to us. Bush lied about imaginary WMDs. Bush suspended habeas corpus so that America could go in and torture anyone we pleased. Bush legislated by executive order on countless occasions in order to prosecute his campaigns. Bush did all of these things in the name of protecting America, meanwhile he let Bin Laden escape because he was busy committing resources to Iraq.

Let's not forget the dreaded Obamacare, epitome of Socialism. Obamacare was ruled Constitutional by a CONSERVATIVE Supreme Court packed with Bush cronies.

Republicans like Bush are the ones who threw the Constitution out the window years ago, and now these same Republicans are the ones who want to be the saviors of America?

YEAH ! SAVE US FROM THE BLACK MAN!!!

Anyone who does not understand that giving up our right to bear arms takes away ALL of our rights is not very bright nor educated.Our forefathers were
sure smart enough to know this when they wrote The Constitution..which allows you to make the narrow-minded comment that you just made.I hate what has happened to ANYONE who was involved in these mass shootings,but taking our protection from us will solve nothing and only make it easier for those nuts to carry out such acts.

And to you Alex Jones Best Friend; I am a republican and I agree with everything that you have said about Bush,but I also know that the corruption has only gotten worse! I have so much more that I could say to you,but it really seems that it would be a waste of my time since people like you aren't open to any truth and will not budge although you claim that only people such as myself are all the same.The truth will stand when the world is on fire & that may not be to far from now!!!

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." What provisions of the original Constitution is it that the Second Amendment is designed to "amended"?

THE SECOND AMENDMENT IS AMENDING THE PROVISIONS IN THE ORIGINAL CONSTITUTION APPLYING TO THE "MILITIA". The States were not satisfied with the powers granted to the "militia" as defined in the original Constitution and required an amendment to "prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers. "(Again quoting from the Preamble to the Amendments.)

What was it about the original Constitutional provisions concerning the "Militia" that was so offensive to the States?

First understand that the word "militia" was used with more than one meaning at the time of the penning of the Constitution. One popular definition used then was one often quoted today, that the "Militia" was every able bodied man owning a gun. As true as this definition is, it only confuses the meaning of the word "militia" as used in the original Constitution that required the Second Amendment to correct. The only definition of "Militia" that had any meaning to the States demanding Amendments is the definition used in the original Constitution. What offended the States then should offend "People" today:

"Militia" in the original Constitution as amended by the Second Amendment is first found in Article 1, Section 8, clause 15, where Congress is granted the power:

"To provide for the calling forth the MILITIA to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrection and repel Invasions." Article 1, Section 8, Clause 16 further empowers Congress:

"To provide for the organizing, arming, and disciplining, the MILITIA, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;" Any "patriot" out there still want to be called a member of the "MILITIA" as defined by the original Constitution?

Article 2, Section 2, Clause 1 empowers: "The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the MILITIA of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States;" The only way the States would accept the "MILITIA" as defined in the original Constitution was that the Federal "MILITIA" be "WELL REGULATED". The States realized that "THE SECURITY OF A FREE STATE" required that the "MILITIA" as originally created in the Constitution be "WELL REGULATED" by a "restrictive clause." How did the States decide to insure that the Constitutional "MILITIA" be "WELL REGULATED"? By demanding that "restrictive clause two" better know as the "Second Amendment" be added to the original Constitution providing:

"THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED." The States knew that "PEOPLE" with "ARMS" would "WELL REGULATE" the Federal "MILITIA"!

Now read for the first time with the full brightness of the Light of truth:

"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."

For those still overcome by propaganda:

The Second Amendment declares by implication that if the "MILITIA" is not "WELL REGULATED" by "PEOPLE" keeping and bearing arms, the "MILITIA" becomes a threat to the "SECURITY OF A FREE STATE."

The "MILITIA" has no "RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS" in the Second Amendment, rather it is only "THE RIGHT OF THE ""PEOPLE"" TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS (that) SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED."

On every question of construction (of the Constitution) let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed." (Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson, June 12, 1823, The Complete Jefferson, p. 322)

What, Sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty.... Whenever Governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins." (Rep. Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts, spoken during floor debate over the Second Amendment [ I Annals of Congress at 750 {August 17, 1789}])

"...to disarm the people - that was the best and most effectual way to enslave them." (George Mason, 3 Elliot, Debates at 380)

"Americans have the right and advantage of being armed - unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." (James Madison, The Federalist Papers #46 at 243-244)

"the ultimate authority ... resides in the people alone," (James Madison, author of the Bill of Rights, in Federalist Paper #46.)

"Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States" (Noah Webster in `An Examination into the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution', 1787, a pamphlet aimed at swaying Pennsylvania toward ratification, in Paul Ford, ed., Pamphlets on the Constitution of the United States, at 56(New York, 1888))

Why then is our National Guard doing duty outside of the US.In case you don't know ,it's to keep the actual costs of the military spread around. Bring them home and spend the money here in the US. Also if you want to secede, play Davy Crocket and go to Texas,see how that wworks for ya. Just say "NO" to civil war.
