Well that’s good news, I was wondering when someone would do that. It’s what the 2005 Supreme court decision said. Wehave a right to militia arms period. And pattern rifles are what that means scary or not. Any fool knows there is no difference between a semi-auto shotgun than a AR-15. Auto loaders were invented in the 1900s and have been around as production firearms for over a 100 years. And with AR-15s now being sold in hunting calibers, they are now the most popular firearm in America.
Over the weekend, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) did exactly what gun owners have been waiting for someone in a position of power to do–he vowed to stand between the Second Amendment and Obama’s relentless gun grabbing efforts.
Speaking to Kentucky voters, McConnell said:
President Obama and his team are doing everything in their power to restrict your constitutional right to keep and bear and arms. Their efforts to restrict your rights, invading your personal privacy and overstepping their bounds with executive orders, are just plain wrong…I will do everything in my power as Senate Republican leader, fighting tooth and nail, to protect your Second Amendment rights.
McConnell said Obama’s gun grab must be stopped so “law-abiding citizens” can “properly and accurately” defend themselves, their families, and their country.
Last week, Kentucky’s junior Senator Rand Paul (R) took a similar position, when he vowed that he will introduce legislation nullifying Obama’s executive orders on guns.
Sounds like he read the 2005 Supreme court Heller decision.
Karl Marx summed up Communism as “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.” This is a good, pithy saying, which, in practice, has succeeded in bringing, upon those under its sway, misery, poverty, rape, torture, slavery, and death.
For the saying implies but does not name the effective agency of its supposed utopia. The agency is called “The State,” and the motto, fleshed out, for the benefit of the easily confused must read “The State will take from each according to his ability:the State will give to each according to his needs.” “Needs and abilities” are, of course, subjective. So the operative statement may be reduced to “the State shall take, the State shall give.”
It is not the constitutional prerogative of the Government to determine needs.
