Doesn't matter. The right to keep and bear arms doesn't have to be exercised if one doesn't want to. Only a frustrated control freak would mandate it.

Not true numb nuts. Just common sense, if every person had a hand gun and knew how to use it, the crime rate would drop. Criminals only prey on helpless people, those they can scare. Murder per 100.000 in Israel is 2.5, for America it's 6
Remember gun control only works on the people who are already obeying the law, the criminals just laugh and do another armed robbery.
Sweden is another country that has assault weapons in their homes, for national defense. Do you know that their Minister of Defense only has 150 people> and they enroll 50.000 young people into the service every year? and once trained they take their guns and ammo home until needed?

Doesn't matter fucktwit, mandating people to own something they don't is as bad as being a gutless gun control advocate.
The last thing this country needs are more buttinskis telling people what hey "need" to own and what not.
Last I looked, it was called the "Bill of Rights", not the "Bill of Needs" nor the "Bill of What Paul Row Says You Need".

Israel also has no friendly neighbors and are outnumbered considerably by those enemies.

You're preaching to the choir. I'm probably a more strident 2nd Amendment supporter than you are but I'm a liberty loving citizen first and foremost.
Nobody is going to make me own (or not own) something that I have the desire to (or not).

I came out of the draft numb nuts, everyone drafted was taught how to fire a weapon and to be proficient with it, That's called boot camp, everyone was treated the same. The whiners and the sissy boys were made into men.

And on mandated things what the hell do you call Obama Health Care? It's a mandate
Be careful of what you wish for, it might come true

I spent 9 years in the service and 14 years teaching firearm safety, dickless. I'd venture to say I shoot more rounds in a 6 month period than you do in 4 years.
You swore to uphold the Constitution yet you obviously don't have a clue what it says.

Kind of like the way you're whining right now because you can't force your demands onto others?

It comes down to weather you want to call a cop and wait to be protected or defend your life. I go for the second one. Israel and Sweden are safer than Americans because of their arming the population.

Exactly right. My neighbor doesn't like guns...knows I have them...but respects my right to and knows I'm not going to try to taslk him into getting one or more. That's how rights and liberties are handled.

I agree. Too many people can't get past the fact that when seconds count, the police are minutes (or more) away.

The government telling someone they have to have a gun is no different than the government telling someone they can't have a gun. Our constitution was written to allow individual choices. We have lost many of those freedoms already. We do not need more regulations and rules we need less. We have too much government already.

Obozo is trying to disarm America by making a global treaty of disarmament..Watch for it...Its coming and his Idea is ,if he agrees to global disarmament with the UN countries then he will make Americans turn in their guns..He is going to start with everyone having to register their guns and then slowly tell you which ones you cant have and try to make you turn them in.. Hand guns are on the list..Obozo doesn't want Americans to be able to defend themselves..Against him..

Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

The first thing Hitler did is disarm the citizens. People, you need to arm yourselves with unregistered, untraceable weapons. You the need to stock up on ammo while it's still available.

When guns are outlawed, only outlaws (and the police and army) have guns. The Second Amendment is there for a purpose and personal safety is only ONE of the reasons.
