The second amendment IS unlimited! If the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, by definition, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be limited.

Benjamin Franklin
Not one of the queer founding fathers
"Benjamin Franklin stands tall among a small group of men we call our Founding Fathers. Ben used his diplomacy skills to serve his fellow countrymen. His role in the American Revolution was not played out on the battlefields like George Washington, but rather in the halls and staterooms of governments. His clear vision of the way things should be, and his skill in both writing and negotiating, helped him to shape the future of the United States of America.

"Ben stands alone as the only person to have signed all four of the documents which helped to create the United States: the Declaration of Independence (1776), the Treaty of Alliance, Amity, and Commerce with France (1778), the Treaty of Peace between England, France, and the United States (1782), and the Constitution (1787). He actually helped to write parts of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. No other individual was more involved in the birth of our nation."

Franklin wasn't a homosexual. But YOU are.

And once again: You're quite ni ggardly with the facts.

Gee, I wonder whose opinion is worth more: an internet fraud already proved to be a m/f c/s liar, or the nine current Supreme Court justices who agree that there are limits to the second amendment... which, apparently... you don't know all the words too.

I didn't say he was- had had 14 children and was quite the gadfly.

PS: Had you passed history class, GayDavy, you would have known the Dred Scott decision was that decision that insisted a slave who escaped to the North was still the property of his "owner" no matter were the slave went; that slaves were not- and could never be- citizens of the US; that slaves were property, and their owners could transport them as such throughout the US.

And the Dred Scott decision was one of the causes of the Civil War which would come to take the lives a half million people.

Putting aside, BOZO- the decision was overturned.

You keep posting that. Back it up! Please post proof that I am or have been proven a liar!
I would say the opinion of the person that realizes limiting is infringing by definition would be more credible. Are you implying Supreme Court Justices are beyond political pressure and manipulation? Are you really that naive? Or just hoping I am?
Why don't you post the words of the second amendment you think I don't know. I have posted it in its entirety several times. However, just for shits and giggles, post the words you think I don't know and your interpretation of them.

Funny how you keep referring to the Heller decision and then I remind you of the entire Heller decision at which point you want to disregard the part you don't like and keep the part you do.

You know: like the Second Amendment.

It is you who have been reminded of the entire Heller decision. Funny thing is, I have yet to see you respond to a post with the entire Heller decision included in it. Why would that be, if it makes your point for you?

I guess you forgot *I* was the one who posted the ENTIRE Heller decision and you were the one that keeps forgetting this part:

"Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues. The Courts opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.[United States v.] Millers holding that the sorts of weapons protected are those in common use at the time finds support in the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of dangerous and unusual weapons."

I don't have to post half the Second Amendment, I know the entire thing and am not embarrassed to repeat it in its entirety.
