The Mandatory Musket Act


  • Constitutionalist 5 years ago

    This being the most wordy peice of junk I've ever read in regaurds to the Constitution, I'll keep my reply short.

    1. We are not nor ever have been a Democracy. The fact that you state that we are shows your lack of knowledge about our nation.

    2. I can find no historical context by any founder stating that the Constitution is "a living document."

    3. Again, study your history, there were very powerful guns during the founding of our nation. There were not just "one shot muskets."

    4. The right of the people to bear arms is so that we may form a milita at anytime for any reason. It is our nation to protect. It is our freedom, our rights. Without the 2nd Amendmnet, the 1st does not exist.

    I'm not listening to some Republican, I'm just heeding the words of George Washington.

    God Bless the U.S.!

    The former Vice President is named Dick Cheney, not as you have it "Dick Chaney." And the Second Amendment says "bear arms" not as you have it - "bare arms."

    Regarding the Second Amendment, it protected many blacks in the deep South during the 1950s and 1960s. I read a book a short while back that detailed how blacks couldn't trust the racist police to protect them from the KKK and others, so they turned to guns - a guaranteed Constitutional right just like speech and religion. I can guarantee if I had a time machine and dropped you off back then in the deep South, you would thank God for the Second Amendment. Stop being so naive.

    Mr. O' Donnell, are you arguing that we need the a-historical and anti inteelectual (everybody gets a gun)interpretation of the Second Amendment so that blacks can protect themselves from racists? Does that mean that the folks who had no problem with slavery drafted the 2nd Amendment so that free slaves could protect themselves from their former slave masters? Wow! I guess when facts don't matter, your really are free to just say anything. As far as the proper spelling of DICK's name, he showed no respect for the office he held, so I have no respect for him!
    Mr. Constitutionalist, your joking right? I'll skip 1) and address 2) I guess if a founder didn't say it, then it doesn't exist. Well they intended slavery to always exist and I'm sure they didn't want blacks to have guns to defend themselves as Mr. O" Donnell suggest. How about women's rights, that was a Constitutional breath of fresh air wasn't it? 3) is just more joking but 4) Ignores the Army, Navy ect, ect

    It really is difficult to take anything you say seriously when your grasp (or lack thereof) of the English language suffers so gravely (and sometimes humorously). Is a GED no longer required to write a public column?
