Let’s Call The Liberals’ Second Amendment Militia Bluff

The Second Amendment is so clear and simple that only liberals, aided by a half-wit liberal law school professor-tariat that is to real lawyering as Jerry Nadler is to Chippendales, could pretend to be confused about its meaning with a straight face.

“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.”

The whole “shall not be infringed” part is a real problem for the left, since collectivist Castro-channelers prefer that we Americans be defenseless serfs existing at the government’s (i.e., their) mercy when we should be armed, freedom-loving citizens with the personal firepower to veto their pinko utopian schemes. So, they fixate on the 2A’s passing reference to the militia, spinning a prefatory statement that recognizes that a militia is a good thing into a directive to cancel out the whole “citizens having guns” part of the Second Amendment.

    It’s important to remember that the framers just got finished fighting and beating a ‘well regulated militia when they wrote this. They understood the need for a standing army, but also recognized the risk and need for the public to be able to overwhelm said force. So, to understand the 2nd, I find it helpful to think of it as “Because a well regulated militia is necessary for the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”

      Actually you have it backward. The colonies were occupied by a standing army which the framers defeated with a well regulated militia.
      In writings in support of the 2A there were many warnings against establishing a standing army in the newly formed republic.
      Modern law enforcement shows that they knew what they were talking about.

    I was very young at the time, but as I recall, Britain tried to confiscate weapons from colonists.

    We declared war and shot them.

      You are very right Bobdog. And you mist be very old.

      As an aside I had a female border collie once. Named her Bob Dog. She and I never got along, had to give her away to someone else.
