The firearms you speak about are criminal acts but the majority of gun owners are as law abiding as the lady in the cross-walk helping kids to school..
Funny how if they are law-abiding, so many of the gun gnutters insist they refuse to do background checks on the people they sell deadly weapons to.

Funny how that is.

Ninety percent of Americans support background checks.

Ten percent don't.

And nine percent of Americans are felons.

I wonder why ten percent refuse to support background checks?

Mark the admirable adaption of the language. There is said (Mr. I) an argument in it more than I could make in a year, all condensed. A regulated right of every man, to do what? To hear arms--and the Constitution says this right to bear arms "shall not be infringed." This "well regulated militia," which is "necessary to the security of a free State" is the right of every man to bear arms, and it is a right which "shall not be infringed." And when his friend from Allegheny said at first,(as he had understood him,) that the federal power absorbed all the rights of the states on this subject, he (.Mr I) confessed that he had felt himself excited almost to pugnacity. This right exceeded, was beyond the reach of the federal Constitution--it was supreme, above the supremacy of the Constitution--it was a right which the Constitution could not touch. It was nothing less than man's right to self defence, that power which could not be impaired by any power of government."

Over the course of his governmental career, Ingersoll worked with a few U. S. presidents such as James Monroe, John Tyler, and James K. Polk).

Good-bye, traitor.

I disagree with you. The people are not going to allow people like you to deny them their right to own a firearm.

The right to own any gun you want is not promised by the Constitution.
In fact, one can argue that only people who belong to "well regulated militias" should be allowed to own guns.

begun and held at the City of New-York, on
Wednesday the fourth of March, one thousand seven hundred and eighty nine.

THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to PREVENT MISCONSTRUCTION or ABUSE of its powers, that further DECLARATORY and RESTRICTIVE clauses should be added: And as EXTENDING the ground of PUBLIC CONFIDENCE in the Government, will BEST ENSURE the beneficent ends of its institution.

RESOLVED by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, two thirds of both Houses concurring, that the following Articles be proposed to the Legislatures of the several States, as amendments to the Constitution of the United States, ALL, or any of which Articles, when RATIFIED by three fourths of the said Legislatures, to be VALID to ALL INTENTS and PURPOSES, as PART of the said Constitution; viz.

ARTICLES in addition to, and Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, proposed by Congress, and ratified by the Legislatures of the several States, pursuant to the fifth Article of the original Constitution....

Amendment II

DECLARATORY clause;

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state,

RESTRICTIVE clause;

the Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms, shall NOT be infringed.

“Shall NOT be infringed!”

"The Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms shall NOT be infringed".

INFRINGEMENT.

TO INFRINGE, V. To encroach.

TO INFRINGE, VIOLATE, TRANSGRESS.

INFRINGE, from frango to break, signifies to break into.
VIOLATE, from the Latin vis force, signifies to use force towards.
TRANSGRESS, from trans and gredior, signifies to go beyond, or farther than we ought.
The civil and moral laws are infringed by those who act in opposition to them: treaties
and engagements are violated by those who do not hold them sacred: the bounds which are
prescribed by the moral law are transgressed by those who are guilty of any excess. It is
the business of government to see that the rights and privileges of individuals or particular
bodies be not infringed: policy but too frequently runs counter to equity; where the particular
interests of princes are more regarded than the dictates of conscience; treaties and compacts
are first violated and then justified: the passions, when not kept under proper control, will
ever hurry men on to transgress the limits of right reason.

I hold friendship to be a very holy league, and no less than a piacle to infringe it. Howel.
No violated leagues with sharp remorse Shall sting the conscious victor. Somerville.

Why hast thou, Satan, broke the bounds pre-scrib'd To thy transgressions? Milton.

INFRINGEMENT, INFRACTION.

INFRINGEMENT and INFRACTION, which are both derived from the Latin verb infringo or frango
(v. To infringe), are employed according to the different senses of the verb infringe: the former
being applied to the rights of individuals, either in their domestic or public capacity; aud the
latter rather to national transactions. Politeness, which teaches us what is due to every man in
the smallest concerns, considers any unasked for interference in the private affairs of another as
an infringement. Equity, which enjoins on nations as well as individuals, an attentive consideration
to the interests of the whole forbids the infraction of a treaty in any case.

Why do you insist on distorting the Constitution?

Why are you so disrespectful of the Constitution and its authors?

Why do you insist on forcing your own meaning onto the Constitution?

It's like you don't respect the document at all. It's like you're an un-American, treasonous POS who wants to undermine the safety and security of America for your own selfish purposes.

Why do you hate America so much? Why?

"If we destroyed that which had been done, we should destroy the volunteer system; because by taking away their arms, we destroy also the martial spirit which they were sure to engender. It was true, as had been said, that the States were so jealous of the preservation of this martial spirit, that after they had adopted the Constitution of the United States, as it now stood, they not satisfied until they had secured an amendment which provided "that the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." If we destroyed the militia system, we did not indeed take away of the right the people to bear arms, but we destroyed the inclination, the habit of wearing arms; and such was not his sentiment as to what ought to be condition of things in a country like ours. He believed that not only right, but the habit of wearing arms was essential to freemen, and to preservation of the liberty of freemen. This was the principle asserted the Constitution of the United States; and if we did away with this, the effect would be to destroy the principle and the feeling together."--Mr Scott, Oct. 23, 1837, PROCEEDINGS AND DEBATES OF THE CONVENTION Or THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, To PROPOSE AMENDMENTS TO THE CONSTITUTION, COMMENCED AT HARRISBURG MAY 2, 1837. VOL. IV.(Page 100)]

"This is a most invaluable liberty guarantied to every American citizen. A people in the full enjoyment of the right of trial by jury, and all armed, are free, and cannot be reduced to slavery. In our country happily, the people are generally divided into opposing political parties of something like proximate numbers. All whether belonging to the party in power or the opposition, alike have the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. The free exercise of this right is indispensable to the safety of those in opposition, and it is equally necessary to the preservation of the liberties of all."

- Senator Garrett Davis, Feb. 27, 1865,[THE CONGRESSIONAL GLOBE CONTAINING THE DEBATES AND PROCEEDINGS OF THE SECOND SESSION OF THE THIRTY EIGHTH CONGRESS ALSO OF THE SPECIAL SESSION OF THE SENATE,(Pages 1133-34).]
