Find that to be very interesting indeed. In that the whole intended purpose for the demand for the 2nd amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Was to secure the right to keep and bear arms for those that HAD violated the law. Specifically, those that had been charged with the high felonious crime of TREASON. To Wit:

The REAL reasons the Right to Keep and Bear Arms was DEMANDED to be SECURED in the United States Constitution

"From among the rights retained by our policy, we have selected those of self defence or bearing arms, of conscience, and of free inquiry, for two purposes; one, to shew the vast superiority of our policy, in being able to keep natural rights necessary for liberty and happiness, out of the hands of governments; the other, to shew that this ability is the effect of its principles, and beyond the reach of Mr. Adams’s system, or of any other, unable to reserve to the people, and to withhold from governments, a variety of rights."--John Taylor, Revolutionary Soldier and U.S. Senator,(1792 – 94, 1803, 1822 – 24).[An Inquiry into the Principles and Policy of the Government of the United States: Section the Sixth; THE GOOD MORAL PRINCIPLES OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES,(1814).]

Here's what another Georgia Supreme Court had to state on the subject:

""The right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed." The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State. Our opinion is, that any law, State or Federal, is repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right, originally belonging to our forefathers, trampled under foot by Charles I. and his two wicked sons and successors, reestablished by the revolution of 1688, conveyed to this land of liberty by the colonists, and finally incorporated conspicuously in our own Magna Charta! And Lexington, Concord, Camden, River Raisin, Sandusky, and the laurel-crowned field of New Orleans, plead eloquently for this interpretation!"--Chief Justice Collier, Nunn v. State, 1 Ga.(1 Kel.) 243 (1846).

And here's what the Georgia governor at that time stated:

"I will not go to the gentleman's State, or to any other gentleman's State, to find laws that I do not approve. We have plenty of them in my own State. And the gentleman ought to feel highly blessed if he has none in Indiana that he disapproves. We have a great many in Georgia I do not approve. There is one in particular which I fought in the legislature and opposed before the courts with all the power that I had. It was a law making it penal to bear concealed deadly weapons. I am individually opposed to bearing such weapons. I never bear weapons of any sort; but I believed that it was the constitutional right of every American citizen to bear arms if he chooses, and just such arms, and in just such way, as he chooses. I thought that it was the birthright of every Georgian to do it. I was defeated in our legislature. I was defeated before our courts. The question went up to the highest judicial tribunal in our State, the Supreme Court*, which sustained the law." [*Nunn v. State, 1 Ga.(1 Kel.) 243 (1846).]--Hon. Alexander H. Stephens, June 28, 1856, U.S. House of Representatives.(Mr. Stephens served as a U.S. Representative from Georgia,(before and after the Civil War). He was also Vice President of the Confederate States of America, and the 50th Governor of Georgia from 1882 until his death in 1883).

Typical gun gnutter lie.

Nunn stated clearly that there was NO RIGHT TO CARRY CONCEALED WEAPONS.

Phairy: the follow is what peopple who speak English call a quote. What that means is: it is EXACTLY what someone said... not some washed up drunk who reads internet blogs thinks it means:

"We are of the opinion, then, that so far as the act of 1837 seeks to suppress the practice of carrying certain weapons secretly, that it is valid, inasmuch as it does not deprive the citizen of his natural right of self-defence, or of his constitutional right to keep and bear arms."

You're SLIPPING, sycophant troll. For >you< quoted:

"inasmuch as it does not deprive the citizen of his natural right of self-defence, or of his constitutional right to keep and bear arms."

inasmuch as it does not deprive the citizen of his natural right of self-defence, or of his constitutional right to keep and bear arms."

inasmuch as it does not deprive the citizen of his natural right of self-defence, or of his constitutional right to keep and bear arms."

>YOU< utilized that quote! Little ol' treasonous >you<. What's the matter sunshine? LOSING IT?

WRONG AGAIN, O' treasonously deceptive one:

Hon. Alexander H. Stephens, June 28, 1856, U.S. House of Representatives.(Mr. Stephens served as a U.S. Representative from Georgia,(before and after the Civil War). He was also Vice President of the Confederate States of America, and the 50th Governor of Georgia from 1882 until his death in 1883).

"Alexander Stephens was born in Wilkes County, Georgia. One of the great orators of his day, he would play a pivotal role in many of the political crises of his time, including the Civil War. Ironically, >>>>>while personally opposed to slavery (calling it "that abominable human tragedy")<<<< <, Stephens was also an ardent supporter of states' rights -- which led him to defend slavery when other politicians attacked the institution."

Only true monsters,(like past and present demonrats), support[ed] slavery. And those are the same past and present "monsters" that have been and are passing Constitutionally perverse 'gun control' laws. Which are/were passed in order to ENSLAVE people.

There wasn't much 'gun control' in this country UNTIL the demonrats started passing 'gun control' for slaves/freed slaves. Prior to that it was mainly an issue of carrying openly or concealed. All of the present traitors are perversely attempting to resurrect and expand the 'jim crow laws'. Because you want EVERYONE ENSLAVED, regardless of race, creed, or color.

The recently released FBI's crime statistics for 2012, once again show the American South dominating the list of states with the highest per capita homicide rates. Louisiana led the nation with a murder rate of 10.8 homicides per 100,000 population. Louisiana's Southern neighbor, Mississippi was second with a homicide rate of 7.4 per 100,000. Alabama (7.1), Michigan (7.0) and South Carolina (6.9) rounded out the top five most murderous U.S. states in 2012. Missouri (6.5), Tennessee (6.0), Georgia and Arkansas also ranked in the top ten states, with Georgia and Arkansas tying for 10th at 5.9 murders per 100,000.
Washington, D.C., which has some of the most stringent 'gun control' laws in the nation. Yet it also has one of the highest murder rates? And then there's N.Y.C. and Chicago, BOTH with extremely stringent 'gun control' laws:

FBI: Chicago passes New York as murder capital of U.S.

Then of course there's DETROIT....

You mean like demonrat Bill Gates, the Chinese and Indian slave owner? Or, do you mean like demonrat Steve Jobs and the Chinese slaves that work for Apple?

NY Times Investigation Confirms That Apple’s Factories In China Are Basically Slave Labor Camps

Or, how about how Microsoft's Bill Gates helped the Chinese government develop an internet that is under TOTAL COMMUNIST GOVERNMENT censorship control?

Yet demonrat controlled cities such as:

Chicago
Detroit
New York City
Washington D.C.

Have the most amount of gun crime. WHY IS THAT? They ALL have VERY STRINGENT CONSTITUTIONALLY REPUGNANT 'gun control' laws, RIGHT? Then WHY aren't they safe? Even after having 'gun control' in force for almost a CENTURY? WHY?

Yet they selectively OMIT that it is:

Chicago
Detroit
New York City
Washington D.C.

Which are the ones that have the highest firearm homicide rates in the NATION. And this, despite having CONSTITUTIONALLY PERVERSE 'gun control' in force for about a CENTURY.

WHY IS THAT?
