No such thing, Vince.
Go back to drinking your lite beer.
Gov. Jan Brewer has signed a bill creating a state militia that she could deploy at any time, and for any reason.

The bill, SB1495, creates a volunteer state militia, separate and apart from the National Guard.

The Second Amendment doesn't give people the right to have a militia.
No amendments give people any rights. The rights that people have are inherent. The amendments to the constitution are laws protecting those rights.
When the Bill of Rights was first proposed, the major argument against it was that by specifying some rights that the government was not free to violate, there would be the implication that the government was free to violate any rights not specifically protected in the Constitution. The Ninth Amendment was written to address this concern.

What really needs to be done is to have ignorant pieces of shit like you castrated.
But I would prefer just two bullets fired directly into your head. Using a high powered rifle in your case as the explosion of shit once the bullets hit would be way too much if done close range.
You truly have an interchangeable mouth and asshole.

Actual, in the USA it's:

'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.'

BESSEMER, Alabama - A 63-year-old Bessemer woman who shot an intruder in her bedroom over the weekend said she had no problem pulling the trigger, and would do it again if necessary.

"I woke up with a man with a gun shoved in my face,'' the woman told Al.com and The Birmingham News today. "I have a family to protect and that's what I did. I protected me and mine."

The victim asked that her name not be used out of fear of retaliation since, "The M.F. didn't die."

The incident happened just before 4 a.m. Saturday on Fourth Avenue S.W. in Bessemer. The victim said she suffers from COPD, congestive heart failure and arthritis. Still, she sprang into action when she came face to face with her attacker.

"He demanded my money and my jewelry,'' she said. "I screamed that I had no money. I screamed that I had no jewelry." She tried several times to reach for her gun, but was unsuccessful. "Every time he pushed me on the floor, I got back up."

She said the 46-year-old suspect put down the gun, which later was found to be an air rifle, and pulled out a keyhole saw. He cut the victim on the arm and stomach.

"I was stabbed and cut,'' she said today.

A family friend of hers staying at the home heard her dogs - seven of them- barking and went to investigate. He was able to divert the attacker long enough for the victim to grab her Charter .44-caliber Bull Dog. "His eyes and mine met through the corner of my door,'' she said. "And then I was able to get my gun."

She fired at the intruder, who then fled out the back door. Asked if she only fired once, the woman replied, "That's all it took, once."

She said she learned the man got into her home through the back door. She said she has no clue why he picked her home. "He was higher than a Georgia pine on something,'' she said. "He would have to be to walk into a home with seven barking dogs."

The woman said she has owned guns for at least 30 years, and grew up hunting with her brother. She said she doesn't practice shooting, because she doesn't have to. "Women are better with guns,'' she said.

Authorities say the suspect was later found when he showed up at UAB West hospital with a gunshot wound. He has since been transferred to UAB Hospital for what authorities described as life-threatening injuries.

The victim said she saw him being wheeled out of UAB West, where she was also treated for her injuries. "That's how I identified him,'' she said.

She said she is still shaken from the ordeal.

"I am not completely recovered,'' she said, "but I'm hanging in there like a hair on a biscuit."

Man tied up, wife shot and killed in home invasion

BAXLEY, Ga.(AP) Authorities are investigating a home invasion in south Georgia that claimed the life of a Baxley woman, who was slain while her husband was tied up and allowed to live.

The Florida Times-Union reports ( http://bit.ly/13dyMaK ) that the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is probing the crime in Appling County.

Appling County sheriff's officials say 26-year-old Jonathan Courson told investigators that two men forced their way into the couple's home in the Oak Ridge subdivision home around 4 a.m. Friday.

Courson said the two men tied up him and his wife, 28-year-old Mandy Courson, and later killed her.

Appling County Sheriff Benny DeLoach asked the GBI for assistance and agents were dispatched from three offices.

Appling County is about 200 miles southeast of Atlanta.

so really, the husband killed the wife. so once again what gun law would have kept her alive?
the stories i put up show that existing gun laws do keep people aloive because sometimes it takes the advantage away from the criminal.
you want to just give the advantage to the criminal all the time.
