I read just fine. You civilian law crap, where is that in the Constitution??<quoted text>
here's what the NRA believes:
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.
Here's a quote from the Constitution:
"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."
Just what is difficult to understand about that sentence? It's very simply put, and seems to me very easy to understand.
By the way, civillian law enforcement, be it local, state or federal, is CIVILLIAN law enforcement. It os law enforcement OF THE PEOPLE, from the same "people" referred to in the Constitution. THUS, any weapon allowed to any of the people is allowed to all the people.
The Constitution does differentiate between military aspects and civillian aspects. It definitely does not differentiate between segments, sects or divisions within the people.
Therefore, constitutionally, any weapon allowed to be used by any of the people, to include those within the people who are selected for civillian law enforcement, be it local, state or federal, is automatically allowed to be one of the "arms" the people have the right to "KEEP AND BEAR".
Do you have a problem reading and understanding the written English language?
Do you have a problem with the United States being a Constitutional republic?
Then you have no problem with the people keeping and bearing arms, do you?
Or, are you in rebellion against the government of the United States?
Where does it say "all arms".
Here's a musket, now you're armed.
This idea that the Second Amendment means you can own a nuclear bomb is well beyond stupid.
