The Second Amendment of our Constitution reserves the right to own, carry, and use handguns for defense, hunting and recreational purposes. It also protects us against a tyrannical government gone out of control. If the Schutsstaffel (or the "SS") in the Nation-State called Nazi Germany was faced with an armed population, who had absolutely no intention of surrendering their firearms - history would have been extremely different. The National Socialist Party would have tanked, and not affected policy of 1930's Germany. The Socialist movement in our country needs a taste of the McCarthy era of the 1950's. We need a McCarthy Senator right now, but like a cop, one is never near when you need one. YOU can sacrifice your rights for a false sense of security (you should realize that the government cannot protect you, they can only clean the mess up after the deed has been done), but I'm not going to. I trust the creators of the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. They saw the future, and wrote many things into the Constitution to protect the common man from tyranny, and oppression. I see absolutely no reason to change anything in the Constitution of the United States of America.

Well Rich, what do you mean by "The 2nd Amendment of the Constitution"? Do you support it, or do you condemn it?

As I said, nothing in our Constitution needs changing. It stands very well as it exists. We do need one change in it, put our Representatives in Congress under the same conditions we endure. Eliminate the habit of Congress exempting themselves from any law that applies to us. A lot of people call this change the "28th Amendment".

[QUOTE who="Bob R."]the Constitution guarantees my right to self defense[/QUOTE]

Yes, Bob, it sure does. The Second Amendment, and the Fourth Amendment of our Constitution protects us in many ways from our government, and from felons that may attack or rob us. The Supreme Court has ruled that the Police have no responsibility to protect us from crime, only to pick up the pieces, and prosecute the offenders after the fact. So, we have to (under certain circumstances) protect ourselves and our property from felons that have only their own interests at heart.
Governor Riley signed into law the Castle Doctrine, which relieves you from having to retreat from a felon that is on your property without your expressed permission, and threatening your life, or property. You may aggressively defend yourself until the felon leaves, or Police arrives to take over. I would, however, ask the terms of self defense, and the responsibility of using lethal force from your local law enforcement officer, just to be on the safe side.
Also, the Commerce Clause in the 10th Amendment protects us from having to buy health insurance that our government has specified (which it has no right to do so)that we must do by a certain date. This relates to what is commonly known as "Obama Care". Unless we want to buy into this illegal and unconstitutional health system, we do not have to.
There are many things that the Constitution protects us from. I would suggest getting a copy, and reading it. Sharon has a copy at the town Library, go borrow and read it. I am sure it will open your eyes to many things that you didn't know that the Federal Government can and cannot do, and many things that the State Government can and cannot do. These days, the Constitution, as a whole, IS NOT taught in the schools. For some reason, they do not want you to know your rights. The "Civics Class" that I had to attend when I was in school spent a lot of time teaching the Constitution to us. Sometime, for some reason, this class was eliminated, where it shouldn't have ever been. If you have children, take the time to teach them the Constitution. You won't regret it. Then, they will know their rights, and responsibilities to our Country. I wish you well.

If you ban guns, only the criminals will have them. It's a stupid and unconstitutional idea.

Hambone,
You are the primary defense of your family against criminals and felons. First, find out from your local law enforcement the rules of using lethal force, so that you do not get charged with murder. Second, provide your family with weapons familiarization, which means practice, practice, practice. Each member of your family over the age of 16 should know how to operate, shoot accurately, and clean your chosen defense weapon. You should have a "safe room (think of a bank vault when you build it)" where assailants cannot force their way into it. The safe room should have a phone to call Police, or be able to use a cell phone from. It also should have an extensive first aid kit capable of treating gunshot wounds - the faster you can treat a gunshot wound, the better chance a family member will have to survive until experienced first responders can take over. Have a family "code word", or short phrase (use a word or phrase from the Bible, or an old book that is out of print) that no one else knows that will identify other family members so you can let them in to your safe room. Never, never come out of your safe room until the police have called you to say that they are there, and can identify themselves plainly to you. In this case, a little paranoia is good for you. Be knowledgeable, be careful, be safe.
Regards

why dont more people call the attorney generals office as i did and find out what your right really are concerning firearms? did anyone of you people know that ALABAMA is an OPEN CARRY STATE? it is, but the local police cheif STRONGLY warns against it because,in his words, his officers arent trained to deal with that. AS far as our constitution goes, lawmakers chanfge that to suit them and if it werent for the NRA we'd alreadt be banned from owning firearms of any kind,so instead of whinning on here, call you local government and find out your rights and vote people in that will defend them !!oh, and join the NRA !!

Ranger,
Who was it that would fire the DJ because of the "mayor's " influence? Ned Butler, or Fred Randall Hughey? I had worked for both at one time or another. My guess would be Fred Randall.
