  • while it is true that the tactics of the anti second rights groups involve taking guns from as many people as possible.... no.... you will not lose your gun rights over unpaid tickets.. to be as hysterical as the left is not in our best interests.

    People are being denied gun purchases because of unpaid traffic violations. Don't pay your ticket, you get a bench warrant issued and now you are a fugitive from justice.

    I'm opposed to fugitives from justice being allowed to legally purchase firearms.


    OK, I'm going to play the Devil's Advocate here. On the phrase "A well regulated militia," who has the right to regulate? Congress?

  • It's a legal point but the Second was followed up with a 1790 law requiring all able bodied men to own a firearm and be available for militia duty in the case of emergencies.


    This might be an indication that Congress felt it had the right to regulate, and if so then rather than requiring firearms ownership they could also restrict them, right? See where I'm going here?


    Remember, at the time our only defense against hostiles were militias- we had no standing army, and the 2nd may have been a response to the War of Independence and a fear of British invasion.


    I'm playing Devil's Advocate, but Congressional laws on firearms have happened since we were founded and most of them have been restrictive. I could make the argument the Founders were referring to State sponsored militias, not individual rights, in the 2nd.


    However, the inherent right to own a firearm had to have been assumed- I mean, Daniel Boone going through the wilderness armed with a cricket bat? Wild Bill Hickock buffaloing people with a bowling pin? Get real- it had to have been assumed you could arm yourself.


    But... in legalese Congress can regulate fire arms, and Congress doesn't recognize inherent rights.


    Congress sucks.

  • Im not concerned about confiscation, just erosion, for now.

  • Again, Regulate / "Regulated" (as it was used in the Constitution) doesn't mean control. Requiring everyone to own firearms AND be proficient in them was more of a lazy man's draft, than anything else. America didn't really have a standing army at that time.

    No... They're marching for other people's rights to be taken away. that's the way it always is. Hollywood celebrities aren't pontificating for their security details to be disarmed either. Useful idiots never march for their own rights to be taken away.

    Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies, The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. — C.S. Lewis
