Runemang-"Let's put the 2nd Amendment back in the context of who wrote it and when"

The context is that we would have the right to carry the deadliest man-portable weapon available.

DFWBrysco-" idiots like this that make up a goodly portion of gun owners"

Let's see, 270 million privately owned guns in the United States, and you could find 20 examples for this video (and you had to go OUTSIDE the US for several of them).

seven/millionths of a percent hardly qualifies as 'a goodly portion'.

HolyGod-"I had to pass a driving test to get my license."

We were talking car purchase, ownership and operation. Not license. Different subject.

HolyGod-"I have to have a license to legally operate my car. You didn't / don't? "

Nope. A license is not require to purchase, own or operate a car. Please let me know if that simple concept needs to be explained to you.

DuckBoy87-"you may speak freely via the medium of newsprint"

And the newsprint can only be printed on a hand-screw type press, which after all was state-of-the-art at the time, and is obviously the only thing they had in mind when then wrote the 1st Amendment (oh, and the popular apple crate in the town square).

'Sorry, not "gun fails", should be "idiot fails". In not one of those clips was the gun at fault.'

@Shelworth - You are absolutely right... but the problem is that it is idiots like this that make up a goodly portion of gun owners, and are usually the first to run screaming "2nd Amendment! 2nd Amendment!" anytime someone wants to talk about responsible gun ownership and restrictions.

Runemang: "P.S. Let's put the 2nd Amendment back in the context of who wrote it and when ... then you can own alllll the muzzle loading muskets you want."

@Runemang, P.S. Let's put the 1st Amendment back in the context of who wrote it and when ... then you may speak freely via the medium of newsprint, and not via radio, not via TV, not via internet; after all, the founding fathers couldn't imagine the technology that we have today.

@HolyGod, I understand where you're coming from, but I disagree that your analogy is spot on.

They way I read the second amendment is in two parts: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, ..., shall not be infringed." -- This part meaning that a well regulated militia will always be around.

And: "..., the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." -- This part meaning that people may own guns.

Ok, so I don't agree with your analogy because the first part of your analogy points to nothing, where the 2nd points to the Miltia.
After the first comma, it's fine: they parallel.
After the second comma, your analogy parallels what's after the third comma in the 2nd.

I'm all for gun rights (you know this from other posts)

BUT

If you have to film yourself holding your gun to show your coolness... you should own one.

I'm so glad you can google there poindexter, and you did it in your finest tin foil too, stunning. But that isn't going to replace a decent scholarly understanding of the Constitution.

Besides, you dwell under the kindly expansive folds of The Maple Leaf, won't your country feel sad and left out if you don't tend to Her first?

@QueenZira: The first 10 "Amendments" form the
United States Bill Of Rights
which is one of the landmarks of human freedom.

Attacking one part of the BoR weakens the rest, which is exactly what "the left" desires.
"Domino Effect"
"Hole in the dike"
"Weakest Link"
These all apply, and more.

I have to marvel at folks who go all "2ND AMENDMENT1!1" right away all the time.

It always makes me wonder whether or not they know any other amendment in the Constitution (1st isn't going to cut it, & no love for the 3rd? Jayzus it must be so lonely just sitting there all the time) let alone have a comprehensive understanding of those other amendments.

It's a marvelous document peeps, and if all you can do is boil it down to BANG BANG, you've already missed the basic point of it all anyway.

"Neither required to purchase,own or drive a car."

Really? I had to pass a driving test to get my license. I have to have a license to legally operate my car. You didn't / don't?

"And your 'interpretation' sucks ass."

How so? It is a matter of grammar and whether they intended to have the second part stand on its own or simply refine the first. My point is that no sane person would read the dog law and assume it meant all dogs were allowed in restaurants.

In my reading, if they wanted all people to own guns, and NOT just those in a well regulated militia then the first part is COMPLETELY redundant and superfluous. Why not simply say " The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." and leave it at that? Why specify anything further if you intend for everyone to have a gun?

technophebe-"valid argument for gun ownership"

Actually, an argument for gun ownership is not required.

HolyGod-"Remember driver's ed? The driving test?"

Neither required to purchase,own or drive a car.

And your 'interpretation' sucks ass.

"Good idea! And let's keep the guns in the hands of the people, because, like you said, "like it says in the constitution"!

"the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

The 2nd amendment says:

"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."

Those commas seem relevant to me. Let me give you an example. Let's say I have a law that says:

"Universal accessibility, being important to the blind, dogs in restaurants and all other public places shall be allowed."

Now, do you read that as all dogs are allowed in all restaurants for any reason whatsoever?

We may differ on our interpretation of what the founding fathers truly meant, but you can't deny that analogy is spot on.

It does scare the crap out of me that people like this own guns. I went to a party at a buddies house once and he had a friend there that I didn't know. This guy was waving his gun around like an idiot, fully loaded clip but he claimed nothing was in the chamber. He was pointing it at people thinking he was being funny, and I gave him one warning to be sure he doesn't point it at me. He did, and I put his ass to sleep and I was asked to leave, like I was in the wrong! I gladly left because that is how idiots with guns kill others or themselves.

Guns are tools for KILLING. That is their only purpose. Hunting = KILLING. Target shooting = practice for KILLING.


Ya no sporting purpose whatsoever it'a not like the Olympics has competitions involving them....

Good idea! And let's keep the guns in the hands of the people, because, like you said, "like it says in the constitution"!

"the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

So would you support a similar process for gun ownership? Take a class, pass a written test, and then demonstrate an ability to operate it safely before you get a license to operate or posses a gun?

No, because the government has already proven itself woefully inadequate at determining user proficiency - as is evidenced by the millions of accidents each year. It would only be a gigantic waste of money.

Guns are kinda like money; you give a good guy money, you get a good guy with more influence. You give an idiot money, you get an idiot with more influence.

This is brilliant - I may have to steal it from you a time or two.

Some jerk 17 year old almost wasted me on the range in Gagetown, New Brunswick during a missfire after jamming his riffle during basic training. All I saw was dirt flying up around me and a Master Corporal jumping the kid and pounding his face into mush. I told the instructors to go f-themselves and I stayed on range and finished my live practice shots that day. True story!
