Not if the change is another pro gun justice. But if what you say comes to pass, me and my neighbor just created the Two Man Boca Raton well-regulated militia.
Well DUH!

Obviously you missed the part about us re-electing Obama and that we will work just as hard to elect Hillary as president in 2016 & reelect her in 2020.

Sorry, it will only apply to state approved militia members only while called up to service by the state.

'A fertilized egg does not make a baby'? Really, then from where do you think babies come? The Stork?
Maybe you fell out of some birds flying azz, but a fertilized egg untill after the first trimester is not considereed a baby - it's fetal tissue - nothing more.

Never heard of "Roe vs. Wade" numbnuts?

Too many stupid people on these threads.

This whole thing is just as sick as anyone who gets off on owning this sh!t. The bottom line is I don't want anyone who won't agree to having a background & mental health check, fingerprinting, whatever, to be able to buy a gun or have one on them when I am in the same place they are. I also want strict/severe accountability for anyone selling guns. I believe they both fall under the protection of everyone else's inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
I have no problem with reasonable people owning reasonable weapons and ammo.

He sure is! I live in one of the most affluent areas on Long Island, make plenty of money, and don't spew idiotic rhetoric, as you've obviously been taught - and very well I may add.

Obammma is just a thug,

– A federal court's ruling Friday that President Obama violated the Constitution with recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board opened the door to claims that a host of rulings and other past appointments may be in question, as the White House blasted the decision as unfounded

He wants what hitler wanted,

All the citizens unarmed..

It's because of his total disrespect of the US Constitution
His tyrannical illegal decrees as if he were king
That every PATRIOT be armed

James Madison was wiser than obamma because he predicted there was gonna be. Time of judicial plundering , ie legal thieving!

OK, time to step in here - why do none - not a single one of you crazy republicans - give the COMPLETE explanation as to who these three judges are (all republican) and "WHY" this decision was overturned?

Why? Truth hard for you guys? Let me help you lemmings out;

"“The text of the Constitution and precedent and practice thereunder support the conclusion that the convening of periodic pro forma sessions in which no business is to be conducted does not have the legal effect of interrupting an intrasession recess otherwise long enough to qualify as a ‘Recess of the Senate’ under the Recess Appointments Clause,” she wrote.

She noted that many members of the Senate have referred to it as being in recess despite the brief sessions, which Republicans have insisted on as a way of blocking just the kind of recess appointments Obama made.

A number of prominent conservatives, including at least eight Republican senators, had called on the Justice Department to make public any legal opinion supporting Obama’s move. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who circulated the letter, called the Justice Department opinion “unconvincing.”

Bottom line is Congress, specifically the House, were only working 3 days per week - specifically to block anyone Obama put up for consideration.

This will be overturned - I'll bet you any amount oif money on that one.

What is an assault weapon? I have a brace of muzzle loading pistols and a long gun from 1886, A M1 from 1944,A 30-06 Sniper rifle from Vietnam, 3 new Glocks with big magazines. I am looking for a black gun and the gun show this weekend.
How long does it take before the black gun is a antique and exceptable?

Where does it say "small" arms in the 2nd amendment?
Semi-automatic assault weapons were not in common use at the time.
I am 100% certain the founding fathers would have considered a rifle capable of firing 100's of bullets a minute to be "dangerous and unusual".
You're way off base, the people are entitled to have the same arms as the military for purposes of ammo and magazine commonality for the common defense.
