Tommot1965: Its America ..Nuff said . the rest of the world already perceives you to be a large community of gun toting rednecks. all because of some Bull that was written a few hundred years back...but hey, keep killing each other then have a whinge why is this happening... PMSL

So Scalia's vote trumped 8 justices who disagreed with him? I missed that vote. And here I thought 5/9 would have to be in agreement. You are a wealth of knowledge...NOT.

Libtard is "fake" but right-winger is legit? You are indeed the keeper of all knowledge.

"Why do you keep repeating this, are you unsure of this? I've not questioned this assertion."

You assert that only the militia has the right to keep and bear arms. I assert (as the 2nd Amendment and Supreme Court affirms) that the PEOPLE have that right.

"Never said you can't own guns. Did imply a certain type, but I don't really care. However guns indeed can be regulated. Also in Heller."

You said I'm limited to a musket. Using your "logic" (since, as you claim, the Bill of Rights actually restricts our rights) you would not be allowed to have a computer, the internet, TV or radio. At least be consistent with your "logic."

"Further to be clear, there are weapons you may not own, a howitzer, an anti-aircraft missile, a nuclear device, an anti-tank shaped charge weapon, I'm sure there are others."

I'm surprised it took you this long to bring up that tired straw man argument. You know, you can't yell "FIRE" in a crowded theater either but we don't cut your tongue out to keep you from doing so....

As though you haven't repeatedly attempted to disparage me? Did libtard get his feelings hurt?

Got a case? Heller for starters.

And you want to talk about justices "inventing" justification for their rulings? Really?

The Bill of Rights doesn't "regulate" anything but the gov't. It is a list of restrictions on the gov't and affirmations of individual rights.

For someone who "doesn't care" about my firearms you certainly waisted a ton of time telling me how I have no right to them. I'd hate to see your mindless drivel about things you do care about.

Pretty weak to argue the gender of God. Maybe he's a tranny in your mind. That would fit your world view.

The Supreme Court disagrees with your definition of who the militia is. And I don't care what Roberts or the Obamabots on the court say about the Constitutionality of the ACA (since you want to be selective in the SC rulings).

Enjoy your quill pens and parchment paper. I'll eagerly await your arrival on my doorstep to see if I have "approved" weapons.

"How so, that I though the M14 only a semi-automatic gun? Sorry you really were limited in the number of semi-automatic rifles you could buy in say 1970."

No. That you don't know the difference between an M1 Garand and an M14. Or the difference between semi-auto and select fire.

"Ronny Reagan changed the rules, not law, in the 1980s. Helped the A15 lobby."

What's an "A15?" Reagan actually shafted gun owners by closing the NFA registry. You can look that up but facts are offensive to you.

"Remember too, that in 1800, you had a choice between a smooth bore muzzle loader or a rifled muzzle loader. You can certainly still purchase them made with modern steel. Get as many as you like, of either type, for your collection. No reason to register them."

Remember, too, that in the 1800's you had quill pens and parchment paper. Rid yourself of your "assault computer."

It's hard to keep track of your ramblings. Which "He" question would that be? Who enslaves you is the gov't from which you believe your rights are derived. You are enslaved to the whim of gov't. I'm sure you'd quietly and meagerly accept a Republican (or Democrat for that matter) congress and president who might abridge any of your "gov't gifted" rights....not.

"A well regulated militia(WHO), being necessary to the security of a free state(WHY), the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."(AFFIRMATION).

You want to pretend that the "militia" is the National Guard. The Supreme Court disagrees with you. It has also affirmed that "the people" is the individual. I'm still waiting for you to point out my "mistake."

You're saying our rights come from gov't (via the Constitution and the Bill of Rights). If that were true, what the gov't gives the gov't can take away. I say the Constitution and Bill of Rights AFFIRM our rights as (stated in the Declaration of Independence) "inalienable rights endowed by our Creator." For some reason that really bothers your sick, twisted, secular mind.

Go ahead, remind me of my previous mistaken attribution of that last statement to the preamble to the Constitution. And I'll remind you of your profound and gross ignorance of firearms (as well as the Bill of Rights).

I answered your questions. You don't like the answers. Your problem, not mine. I gave you examples of how but you tell me I need to learn to read. Really pathetic on your part. At least be sincere and give more than bumper sticker retorts.

The restrictions I mentioned are on the gov't, not the people. You stated "The 2nd Amendment clearly allows for guns owned by citizens in a government regulated militia." That is NOT what the 2nd Amendment says. It defines WHY a militia is necessary and WHO comprises it. A militia is NOT a gov't organization no matter how badly you want that to be true. Again, the Bill of Rights AFFIRMS rights of the people, not rights of the gov't. You are the last person who should be admonishing someone else to "learn to read."

Anyone who can't bring themselves to state His name (God) clearly doesn't believe He exists. Especially when you criticize those who do. Again, your issue, not mine.

Marty4650: You cannot regulate human error.

Yes if no one had a gun, then no one could be shot. But if no one had a car, then no one could be a victim of a highway accident, and if no one had a ladder, then no one could fall off a ladder.

Think about the logic, before you make smug statements for the sake of being politically correct.

Graham Austin, umm, yes, we DO need guns. If all gun ownership were banned today who would still have them? If you guessed criminals pat yourself on the back. But I suspect you believe they would actually disappear. And, ironically, the police you are so quick to impugn would still have them. Talk about "zero logic." Sheeesh....

tabloid: There should be a public democratic referendum in the U.S to to stop selling firearms and ban the public from owning any firearm. (Democracy at work).
Don't think the NRA would go for that.....they might loose.
If they did go for that....I would have a great deal of respect for them.

tabloid, that's why (thankfully) the US is a representative republic and not a classic "democracy." The way it is the three wolves don't get to vote against the two sheep as to what is for dinner.

So you stand by your claim that our rights come from government? How pathetic that you willingly subjugate yourself to the will of man. Let's hope, for your sake and mine, that these wizards of smart don't decide someday that we don't have a right to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." You're a slave and don't even know it.

Leftwingers such as yourself are the ones who impose on others. Like forcing me to buy overpriced health insurance. Forcing me to pay for your abortions and your healthcare. Talk about "inventive."

You are incapable of reading comprehension. How on earth does the 2nd Amendment confer a right to the government? The 2nd Amendment states why a militia is necessary and identifies WHO that is. The PEOPLE. In totality the Bill of Rights is a list of RESTRICTIONS on the government. Are you saying without the 2nd Amendment the gov't wouldn't "have the right" to arm itself?

Tell me which other amendments in the Bill of Rights grants or defines the rights of government.

You asked if I was sure God exists and I answered "yes." You claim otherwise but my certainty that He exists makes me arrogant and your claim that He doesn't makes you what? Pot, meet kettle.

HowaboutRAW, you're right in the sense that I made an honest mistake in the attribution of the statement to the preamble. Sue me. The point remains valid as it speaks to the fervent beliefs of our founders as to where our rights originate.

For the sake of brevity in making my point I didn't quote the entirety of the 2nd Amendment. I also didn't quote the entire Bill of Rights. You would surely like to make the false claim that the 2nd Amendment affirms a right to the "national guard" or some other silliness. It no more does that than the 1st Amendment refers only to freedom of speech to the press.

And by what stretch of your vivid imagination did I "speak for God?" (Or "G-D" as your fragile nature states)

Tell me, Einstein, from where do our rights come? And yes, I am sure God exists and it's NOT the government which is the god you apparently worship. That's your business and your folly.

HowaboutRAW, "the right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." How clueless can you be? The preamble to the Constitution proclaims that we are "endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights, among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." It's an acknowledgement that our rights come from God not gov't. Deal with it. My rights are "inalienable." Cannot be taken away without DUE PROCESS. The Constitution merely AFFIRMS these rights.

An M1 Garand is, and always has been, available to the public. It's a WWII rifle. Semi-automatic. An M-14 was and is a select fire weapon capable of fully automatic fire. It, too, can be purchased today if you're willing to pay about $20,000, submit finger prints, a $200 tax stamp fee and wait about 9 months for approval by the ATF to take possession of it.

You don't have to agree with these facts but they are nonetheless facts.

HowaboutRAW, you are "about" clueless regarding the 2nd Amendment. True, the 2nd Amendment doesn't "give" a right to bear arms. It AFFIRMS an inalienable right. Our rights don't come from gov't. And which "rules were loosened for assault rifles" in the 80's?

Tommot1965, make sure you Aussies don't call on us next time you find yourselves under threat of Japanese (or other imperialist, jihadist) invasion. This "gun toting redneck" will be happy to stand by and let it happen...

Just a simple "thank you" for recognizing he's a " recipient" and not a "winner" of the MoH. Too many people don't appreciate the distinction as though awards of valor are a competition. He's truly an American treasure. Thanks for sharing.

I can't help what it says to you but it IS Hawaii.... :) I guess it "said" Japan to the producers of at least one movie I know it appeared in. Thanks for the comment, sincerely.
