    “The federal government and the states could limit any weapon types not having a “reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia.”

    What this says to me, which I’m sure you’ll disagree with, is that any law abiding citizen of these United States, could purchase and own ANY weapon type that DOES have a reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia. Which , in fact, we can. I can pay the federal tax, get the proper permits, and own a full auto M-16, if I wish. In v. Miller, it was determined that a shotgun with a barrel less than 18 inches isn’t a military weapon. That’s it. That is what that case prohibits. AND… Only because the defense team didn’t show up to argue their case at the Supreme Court. Things may have gone differently if they had.

    As for the 2008 decision superceding these? Ahhh, yes, it did…

    “Although significant portions of Cruikshank have been overturned (either explicitly or by implication) by later decisions, most notably the 5–4 District of Columbia v. Heller ruling in 2008, it is still relied upon with some authority in other portions.” … And …

    “The majority opinion of the Supreme Court in Heller suggested that Cruikshank and the chain of cases flowing from it would no longer be considered good law as a result of the radically changed view of the Fourteenth Amendment when that issue eventually comes before the courts:”

    Thanks for citing Cruikshank tho. Interesting.

    Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I have a life.

    First. The 2nd, as drafted, only has 1 comma. Hence my reference to part 1 & 2.

    Second. Per your Supreme Court case, once again you cherry pick the part that works for you, while leaving out what doesn’t. The full quote from the Justices…

    “The right to bear arms is not granted by the Constitution; neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence. The Second Amendments means no more than that it shall not be infringed by Congress,and has no other effect than to restrict the powers of the National Government.”

    Note that second sentence. It means no more than that it shall not be infringed, and restricts the powers of the National (Federal) Government as to private ownership.

    You are right in a sense. The Constitution, nor the Bill of Rights gives us the right to keep and bear arms. That right was/is considered an INHERENT right of the people, and not a right granted by the government. The second only means that the INHERENT right can not be infringed.

    I thought I was acknowledging your contention that a militia wasn’t needed now, because of the National Guard, by adding the words ‘national guard’ in parentheses.

    As for v.Miller. That case was specifically about a sawed off shotgun. If you read the wording thoughtout the case, you’ll notice, actually, what you posted.

    As you consider yourself a history and constitution authority, why don’t you regard the 2nd as written, and not picked apart to suit your statement.

    ‘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.’

    The ‘first part’, recognizes the need for your militia (national guard). The second part recognizes the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Which shall not be infringed.
    The right which the Supreme Court has even recently verified as belonging to ‘WE THE PEOPLE’.

    Also, this statement is as true today as it was when first made in 1792.

    As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the next article in their right to keep and bear their private arms.

    Maher has actually come out several times recently to condemn Islam. I’ve found that I can’t despise him as much as I did because of it.

    As for the west waking up? Not with Obama in charge. He’s the head cheerleader for Islam.

    “This is what civilization looks like, you barbarous apes,” wrote one commenter, presumably addressing the Islamic attackers who gunned down journalists…

    Addressing the Islamic attackers? Noooo. He/she was addressing Islam. Something that, unfortunately, to many DON’T have the balls to do, but which needs to be done.

    Jeremiah 16:14-15

    14 “However, the days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when it will no longer be said, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the Israelites up out of Egypt,’ 15 but it will be said, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the Israelites up out of the land of the north and out of all the countries where he had banished them.’ For I will restore them to the land I gave their ancestors.

    I listened to a LOT of ‘pundits’ talking about this decision over the past week. The most asked question was … “What could Officer Darren Wilson have done differently?”

    No one asked the question that needs asking. What could, what SHOULD Micheal Brown have done differently?

    Only the professional victim class can continue, in the face of all the evidence, to blame the person doing their job, instead of the person that escalated the violence through arrogant stupidity.

    Hey Monk. Got your Blaze video ad thing resolved? It’s odd, but I’m the least tech savvy person I know. With just Firefox, and whatever they use, and ‘free’ Avira antivirus/spyware, I get almost no interference with these pop-ups. Glad though, to see you’re still around.

    Dammmmm, D and J. I DO NOT thank you for the visual.

  • [31] October 28, 2014 at 7:37pm

    Amen, txannie. I think I implied that with my comment to s2by2, but you stated it in no nonsense wording. Thank you, God bless, and keep your powder dry.

    No comment on the article, but I do remember having a PO box with that old combination style lock. I thought they were fazed out so many years ago.

    Ok. Carry on with real, and more appropriate, comments.

    Actually Zipit, I just read the latest from Ferguson, via Anonymous. I wonder if this buildup in security is also meant to protect them from us, law-abiding US citizens, that may feel the need to get a bit angry about something they, the Obama government, plan in the very near future.

  • [34] October 28, 2014 at 7:08pm

    I’m a bit torn by your comment, S2BY2. Yes Obama will love it. But have you already hauled down your US flag, and run up the white surrender flag?

  • [179] October 28, 2014 at 6:56pm

    Correct, Lloyd. Not to mention they also apparently revealed his ‘alias’, and other details about his current appearance. And then to put his girlfriend and unborn child at risk? If ‘anonymous’ is ever found out, they need to face a reckoning.

    Earnest said Tuesday. “I would be surprised, but I’ve been surprised before if the White House were involved in the purchasing of office supplies at the agency level.”

    Surprised Josh? They were most likely involved in the purchase of millions of rounds of various caliber ammunition, so why be surprised now?

    Well tell ya what Mike. If they ever do mount up Ma Deuce, I hope whoever they visit can put up streaming real time video, so we can all see, with no question, the police state that will be proven.

    If it does happen, I hope more Americans than just me, will be ready to mount ourselves up, and take back this country in like fashion.

    Absolutely agree. Descriptions nowadays are … ‘two men’? That boils down to about 150 million suspects.

    And crickatone. Imo, muslims have moved beyond the need for that big bang. While they do produce a good news story, any disruption in local activities will produce fear, and monetary assets being spent on calming those fears. Money spent in a small community, takes money and assets away from a larger target.
