Well Stated

From National Review Online.

The purpose of having citizens armed with paramilitary weapons is to allow them to engage in paramilitary actions. The Second Amendment is not about Bambi and burglars — whatever a well-regulated militia is, it is not a hunting party or a sport-clays club. It is remarkable to me that any educated person — let alone a Harvard Law graduate — believes that the second item on the Bill of Rights is a constitutional guarantee of enjoying a recreational activity.

There is no legitimate exception to the Second Amendment for military-style weapons, because military-style weapons are precisely what the Second Amendment guarantees our right to keep and bear. The purpose of the Second Amendment is to secure our ability to oppose enemies foreign and domestic, a guarantee against disorder and tyranny.”

    Amazing how the present group of anti-2nd amendment Constitutional scholars and Supreme Court jesters ignore the words of the Founding Fathers. Thomas Jefferson himself wrote “No freeman shall ever be debarred the use of arms”. The domestic enemies of the Constitution have identified themselves. Will America allow them to achieve their victory?
