A militia today, as it was in the Founder's day, is made up of armed citizens. The 2nd amendment is quite clear to anyone with more then 2 working brain cells. It has nothing to do with hunting, or shooting bad guys. It has to do with protecting yourself from an overzealous radical, out of control Government. Now one guy with a gun cannot do that, but many million people, with many million guns can, especially if that government is also made up of people who drink a lot, and may at times use drugs.

Wrong; it means disciplined and prepared. And preparation includes ready access to armamanets. By the PEOPLE. In context, it means that a citizen (the people) has a RIGHT, not a grant, not permission, not an okey-dokey, to OWN and BEAR [fire]arms. PERIOD. There was no "expiration date" or conditions attached. There was no "regulation" in the parlance of the Left. No amount of leftist creative reading comprehension can change the meaning of those words. It was #2 in the list of enumenrated RIGHTS for a reason.
The 2nd Amendment expressly says the government SHALL NOT infringe on the RIGHT. PERIOD.
Now tell me the meaning of "militia", both then and now. You seem to have "accidentally" overlooked it.

Also, regarding "disciplined and prepared", disciplined is the last word I'd use to describe gunfreaks, and what are you "preparing" for? If the federal government ever did attack you, your chances of survival would be roughly the same as those of Sarah Palin winning the Nobel Prize for literature.

Al Sharpton and Dianne Feinstein would work too. If the framers were alive today they would likely say WTF is the matter with you people, what happened to love of country, morals, honor and personal responsibility.
They might also ask where the spores in RustyS's brain came from.

Thanks for your original and utterly meaningless definition of "militia".

You, like most libs, are not educatable. Your religion forces you to ignore anything contrary to your programming.

So in your religion, a gun owner is a "lunatic" and a "freak." How is it you came to be so superior, Lar? Did your mommy and teachers tell you that you are a special person?

On the topic of Nobel, what exactly did Obama do to earn his? You know, besides being of mixed race?

These black thugs are against guns because they don't want their victims armed.......

If they can get all guns taken away from all people they would be happy as they know their mama the crack dealer will have plenty of guns for them........

Rather than urging a vote to infringe on our rights Ol Bama should be urging people who look like the "son he doesn't have" to stop killing shooting mothers and babies.
He made that public statement when people were wanting to start a riot over trayvon. Where is his statement about the baby killers?
I bet If OlBama had a son he would look just like those baby killers in Georgia.
He is probably their baby-daddy.
Maybe BO will give the deserve-to-dies a pardon.
They probably won't make it that far.
Baby killers last for about 2 days because even hardened criminals (and most animals) will kill a baby killer.
I hope they both go painfully.

The real power of the gun owner does not come from the barrel of his gun. It comes from his vote. Even gun owners who vote all the time will make sure they go to vote out a gun control goon.

<quoted text>The Constitution also says nothing about killing innocent people. That's why common sense has to take over.
The second amendent was a product of its time. There was reason to be wary of the federal government, with the Revolution just over.
Second, no one at that time could have envisioned the kinds of killing machines we have today. An "assault" weapon then was a musket.
According to your reasoning, anyone should have the right to own a nuclear bomb.
I see you are as stupid this week as you were last week.

My comment was in rebuttal to one that says the Constitution states that guns should be well regulated, which is an out right lie.

I don't really think a nuclear bomb falls under the Second Amendment and you alluding to the idea that I reasoned anyone should have the right to one is just another example of why people like you should be deprived of the right to vote. You're too stupid to make an intelligent decision.
