The Last Of The Millenniums

Just because it always has been, doesn't mean it always will be

The Second Amendment

gun nuts 2nd amend

‘Amendment II’
‘A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed’.

Our Founding Fathers wrote the Second Amendment with the knowledge that the ‘common use arm’ was the flintlock rifle and pistol.

Today’s ‘protectors of the Second Amendment’, want us to accept for ‘commom use’ weapons like the AR15.

23 seconds for 30 rounds.

Who would seroiusly think the Founding Fathers would make that a ‘right’?

The main rifle used during the Revoluntionary war was the flintlock :

And the AR15 :

SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, et al., PETITIONERS v.
DICK ANTHONY HELLER

Justice Scalia, Opinion of the Court

‘Of course the right was not unlimited, just as the First Amendment ’s right of free speech was not’.

‘Thus, we do not read the Second Amendment to protect the right of citizens to carry arms for any sort of confrontation, just as we do not read the First Amendment to protect the right of citizens to speak for any purpose’.

‘We therefore read Miller to say only that the Second Amendment does not protect those weapons not typically possessed by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes, such as short-barreled shotguns’.

‘ Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited’.

‘Although we do not undertake an exhaustive historical analysis today of the full scope of the Second Amendment , nothing in our opinion should 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’.

‘We also recognize another important limitation on the right to keep and carry arms. Miller said, as we have explained, that the sorts of weapons protected were those “in common use at the time.”

One thought on “The Second Amendment

  1. The AR 15 is a good light weapon, it is no match for the kind of fire power carried by drug dealers and alike. The founding Fathers would approve if they could but see the weaponry we are facing and on more than one front.
