Arms are the only true badge of liberty. The possession of arms is the distinction of a free man from a slave. - Andrew Fletcher 1698

What I find abhorent is the notion that it is acceptable to twist the meaning of the words of the constitution to create case law that in effect nullifies the amendment. That, IMO is subverting the constitution. The word smithing and extreme and radical interpretations of common sense phrases and expressions so that the application of the constitution in practice strips citizens of the very rights the amendment was meant to protect - is much more alarming to me than someone who takes a straight run at it because they think an amendment should be repealed.
We've seen this kind of blatant disregard for the constitution by people who at first said that the Second Amendment only applied to militias. Now we see it with people who say that "to bear" arms doesn't mean to carry them on your person - ie: to go armed, but rather it just means ownership.
We see the same thing with judges like Myerscough and Stiehl who play those same intelectually dishonest games with terms like "scrutiny" and defining a state's interest in regulating.

Exactly...that was what I was just going to mention..
They cringed when states from Florida to Colorado were turned into the OK Corral with stand-your-ground laws that essentially make it legal for any gunman, including a felon, to shoot an unarmed victim and claim self-defense.
Funny, all those Dodge Cities and OK Corrals out there and Chicago is still leading the nation in murder and violent crime.

No kidding. The gun has been defending stupidity for the entire duration of this country. If it weren't for the gun, this guy wouldn't have the platform to spread his ignorance.

I heard on Sunday that 18 people had been killed in Chicago over the weekend.
That's quite a few more than were killed in Colorado.
Gun control advocates don't look at the situation and conclude that their gun control policies are intrinsically flawed and failed on their own merits. They look at the situation and conclude that their gun control policies have been undermined by inadequate gun control laws elsewhere - like in neighboring states. Instead of outrage over an obviously failed gun control policy, they think the answer is stricter gun control and more broadly applied - as in implemented and enforced over the entire U.S.A.
It's the same argument communists used. When things didn't look good for communist states, they claimed it was because communism was being undermined by states that practiced overtly hostile capitalism. The idea was that once all nations became communist, life would be better for all people everywhere on the planet.
Socialists do the same thing with their precious entitlement programs. If a program fails, it was because it was underfunded. In their minds it doesn't need to be cancelled, the government just needs to take the concept farther. Quadruple the money being given out and make it available to 4 times as many people as previous... then it will work.
No wonder these morons repeated gunwalking operations with Fast and Furious even after the evaluation of the gun walking tactic in Operation Wide Receiver declared the tactic flawed.
These people are stupid.

While many of his facts are either wrong or intentional lies, if he believes there are other places in the world that are safer for him to inhabit, then I also suggest he leave. By the tone of his manifesto, it's quite clear that he is a gun hater and it's very doubtful that he truly is a gun owner. I believe he is only posing as a gun owner to make it appear that his views are common in the law-abiding, gun owner community - when in fact they are not.

they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles." — Jeff Cooper, The Art of the Rifle

I'm going to buy a lottery ticket today and the sky must be falling, because I agree with Tompo on this one.

be sure to buy a scratch off, too. other than IL CCW, I'm still trying to find an opportunity that I can agree with you!

But I can respect their honesty in recognizing they can't get their gun prohibition any other way. And, I also suspect that if they really "got their way" they would get far more than they bargained for ... like so many modern-day General Gage's and Colonel Smith's.

Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I feel. One is the colors that fly high and proud the red, the white, the blue. The other ones got a rattle snake with a simple statement made, don't tread on me, is what it says and I'll take that to my grave
