Shall Not Be Infringed...


I don't understand why it is even a question.

The Second Amendment is part of the Bill of Rights to the Constitution of the United States of America.

It is written in a plain, simple language that any person who is honest with himself understands.

The federal government has no authority whatsoever to infringe upon the right of The People to keep and bear arms.  Any arms.  The government of the United States and the governments of the united states  have no legitimate legal right to regulate, restrict or refuse a law abiding citizen's right to keep and bear arms.  Period.

Who are The People?  Every law abiding citizen of the Unites States of America.

The natural human rights outlined in the Bill of Rights to the Constitution of these United States take precedence over any law that the federal government or any state government may try to implement.  No government has the legal right to make any law that would infringe upon the right of The People to keep and bear arms.

The Bill of Rights simply acknowledges the God given rights of man.  It does not bestow rights.  It tells our government to keep their hands off of the people in these areas. 

It is simple.  Every law that any government has put into place that infringes upon the right of the law abiding citizen to keep and bear any arm is unconstitutional.

To allow conditions, restrictions or regulations to be placed upon the Second Amendment is to deny the intention of the Second Amendment and the power of The Constitution.

Its really quite simple, once you wrap your mind around it.

That's part of the problem, Blue, it's a simple and consise concept which requires personal responsibility, a lot of people don't want to be responsible.

Here's the 2nd draft of the amendment;

"A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, being the best security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed; but no person religiously scrupulous shall be compelled to bear arms"

Here's the source;


yeah, it's wiki, deal with it. razzzzz :)

A law must be constitutional so what is this, "law abiding" citizen crap? There are at least 20,000 "laws" that are unconstitutional gun control "laws." Break them, or not support them, and you don't have a right to keep and bear arms? Come on!
Commies know how to pass unconstitutional laws. Lock and load.

Anon... You make a good point about "their" ability to create unconstitutional laws that could make an otherwise law abiding citizen a law breaker. We both know that the books are full of such laws covering (controlling) every facet of our lives.

I think you realize that the term "law abiding citizen", as used in the context of my commentary above, means someone who does not go around raping, robbing, killing or infringing upon the rights of his fellow citizens.

Are we on the same page?

Also, you stated that "A law must be constitutional"...

I believe that you realize that any law passed by a duly elected legislative body or any ordnance approved by a legitimate government is deemed constitutional until such time as it is challenged and found to be not constitutional by an appropriate judicial body.

That's just the way it is. No different than it has always been. The difference today is that citizens are apathetic and legislators at all levels are willing to write and pass unconstitutional laws. Citizens no longer care and are willing to be controlled by their government, governments are willing to control every facet of the lives of citizens.

All of the activists are on the other side. :)
