<quoted text>I guess you forgot *I* was the one who posted the ENTIRE Heller decision and you were the one that keeps forgetting this part:

"Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues. The Court’s opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.[United States v.] Miller’s holding that the sorts of weapons protected are those “in common use at the time” finds support in the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of dangerous and unusual weapons."

Thank you! Though you waste your time on that one. Barefoot ignores facts, refuses to post proof of any of its assertions, and insists on willful ignorance.

Yeah... funny how that is... as if they see that you are going to post something that has no relationship to the Second Amendment whatsoever and ignore it.

Of course, your version of the Second Amendment isn't the US version so there ya go...

I hear you, and understand.
I, on the other hand, have decided and chosen to disregard barefoot, from this point forward. I have repeatedly mopped the floor with barefoot. It continues to ignore, avoid, deflect, detract, sidestep, and hide. It then returns later to post propaganda.
It never admits being wrong. It never provides backing sources or links. It never provides acknowledges conservative sources, links, or facts.
This has gone on for months. I'm done wasting my time.
Barefoot can talk to itself as far as I'm concerned.
Have fun mopping the floor with it for a while. I fear you will soon come to the same conclusion I did, however.
Again, thanks for the back up and support. I look forward to conversing with you further in the near future.

"Among the natural rights of the Colonists are these: First, a right to life; Secondly, to liberty; Thirdly, to property; together with the right to support and defend them in the best manner they can. These are evident branches of, rather than deductions from, the duty of self-preservation, commonly called the first law of nature."

""Just and true liberty, equal and impartial liberty," in matters spiritual and temporal, is a thing that all men are clearly entitled to by the eternal and immutable laws of God and nature,[418]as well as by the law of nations and all well-grounded municipal laws, which must have their foundation in the former."

"In short, it is the greatest absurdity to suppose it in the power of one, or any number of men, at the entering into society, to renounce their essential natural rights, or the means of preserving those rights; when the grand end of civil government, from the very nature of its institution, is for the support, protection, and defence of those very rights; the principal of which, as is before observed, are Life, Liberty, and Property. If men, through fear, fraud, or mistake, should in terms renounce or give up any essential natural right, the eternal law of reason and the grand end of society would absolutely vacate such renunciation. The right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty, it is not in the power of man to alienate this gift and voluntarily become a slave."--Samuel Adams, The Rights of The Colonists, November 20, 1772
Thank you for the post. Maybe some youngsters can Learn what the USA once represented, consisted of, and could be if fought for.

Why would he, she, it, think you would give early warning?
It is inevitable and coming soon enough. Not that I look forward to the necessity of death, but I do look forward to the restoration of a once great nation.
I think the rest of the tax paying enablers are looking forward to finally enabling themselves for a change. What are your thoughts on the future?

Hey David, is it just me, or does barefoot have an issue with homosexuals, yet professes to be an understanding compassionate liberal? So what if a founding father was homosexual? He stood up for liberty. He didn't try to redefine marriage. He would have stood up and kicked barefoot's wimpy ass! What is the issue?
I think barefoot should disclose its location since it thinks the NRA should disclose its membership roll.
I mean, what is the big deal? Does barefoot think posters would show up to kick its ass? There should be no issue. The government will protect it!

]The difference is resolved in one question. I am ready to die for my country and to keep our substance of the constitution the way it was written. The question is, are the liberals ready to die to take our weapons and end our constitution.
