I suppose Europe is not like the Wild West then. We still have large animals in or near every major city. Not too mention rural America.

Lefties as you call them believe in Democracy and rule by consent of the people. Lefties and progressives do not believe that when that consent goes against their wishes they then have the automatic right to foment riot and rebellion. That is a fact which is lost on many of the extremist right wing  people who seem to believe that a disagreement over political principles can be resolved through a minority shooting it out with their elected Government.

it's easy as using common sense. obviously citizens should not be allowed to own guns. They should have never gotten to the point where it's basically impossible to disarm America this point.

leave the guns to the people who are trained And need them like the police and military.

This thread is still going? Would have though by now it would be clear that claims of getting rid of the Second Amendment is nothing but baseless fear mongering.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Ah, but it all depends on which constitutional right you select, correct?  You aren't trying to diminish our constitutional right to amend the Constitution, are you (which probably has almost zero chance of occurring anyway)?

The answer to this question is straightforward: The purpose of having citizens armed with paramilitary weapons is to allow them to engage in paramilitary actions.


And we've seen all the collateral damage that purpose has resulted in, all to allow the citizens to engage in paramilitary actions which hasn't actually been needed for what, over a century now at least?  We already have the most powerful military in the world to protect us against 'foreign' threats, and it's laughable that, even if we threw the door wide open and allowed automatic weapons, allowing citizens to possess guns would result in any hesitation by a tyrannical government intent on subduing us.  I've got two words for you:  "Air Force" (which would result in two other words for the citizenry: 'game over'.)

Why does the UN even care about our gun rights? Maybe because our government did a study to see how many of our own military would fire on US citizens.The results were overwhelmingly no way. So if /when the US declares marshall law they are bringing in UN troops to "contain" us. They have been training them near here for years. They have maps of what they call hot spots which show basicly where they'll have fight on their hands. We have  the second amendment to protect ourselves from just such things. As for assault riffles, thats exactly what they meant (well if they had them then).  It keeps us from being overrun by our government.Otherwise we don't stand a chance.

The UN doesn't care about our gun anything.

The US Constitution Article 1, Section 9 states, "The privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it."

So, I ask... how will Martial Law be declared? Neither the president nor congress can do so, unless the above exceptions are met. Doing so would be considered treasonous, and possibly a declaration of war against the citizens. And if UN troops were brought in, it would absolutely be considered an invasion by a foreign military, and under the Rules of Land Warfare, we would be well within our rights to repell them.

Keep in mind that the most recent NDAA amendment effectively suspends Habeas Corpus.  That is, by legislative fiat, the government has suspended Habeas.

Keep in mind that the Unpatriot Act and its several extensions effectively nullifies the Fourth Amendment by way of National Security Letters.

So, if your point is that the government honors the rule of law, or governs in accordance with the US Constitution, you're quite wrong about that.

As it's been noted the UN doesn't give a damn about American gun laws. What they care about is the illegal gun trade and how international efforts could be made to stop it, efforts that have been going on for more than a decade. Some overly paranoid Americans saw this, decided that this was targetted directly at the Second Amendment even though it doesn't in anyway, and foolishly freaked out. Likewise UN troops (there's no such thing btw) are not training to contain American citizens. Shockingly America is not the centre of the universe and the UN has far more important matters to worry about. Surpressing the freedom of Americans for no reason at all is way down on the list. It's below 'setting the world record for longest string of high fives'. You're worrying yourself over nothing.

Did I ever say anything about the government following the rule of law? Nope.

The NDAA does not supercede the US Constitution, nor can any Executive Order (and NDAA is an EO, not amendment). Also, look at the wording of the NDAA - strict requirements, just like Martial Law (though, the requirements differ - because they are different things).

Also, before the Patriot Act (while I don't agree with it, I will use the proper wording as to not show ignorance or arrogance - take your pick) there was an Act called FISA - which basically allowed LEOs to circumvent the 4th, for the same reasons.

OMG!!! The deaths...wait, the numbers provided there are not all deaths.

Also, nothing on that says anything about Automatic weapons. So, I will ask this one last time.... where is your emperical evidence?
