  • Imagination Is More Important Than Knowledge -Albert Einstein

Posted 14 November 2012 - 09:22 AM

I watched on CNN recently that Obama is trying to make the purchase of guns as well as keeping them in your house (even licensed) ILLEGAL... ok soooo, what about the 2nd amendment of the United States Constituion..But then again, since when does Obama care about the constitution. He wants a one country government rule!

"The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights that protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, along with the rest of the Bill of Rights."


There is a reason people are buying so many guns (licensed and legal) to prepare for a civil war if it comes down to it.. Its like the big protest the students had at OLE MISS where they said the South Will Rise Again... Although, I hope it will not come to that... but if he started pulling things from the Constitution ohhh will that be a HUGEEE problem.

as part of a well regulated  militia, after all.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Militia has a negative connotation these days.  The idea at the time was clearly an issue of defending communities and individuals from an oppressive government such as the one being escaped.  I agree that if they come for the guns there will be trouble.  And it won't just come from a small fringe or minority of citizens.

Yes, you guys let so many of your rights being tweaked, but this one seems to be the most important for many US Americans.

I have no doubt that 0bama would love nothing more then to ban all gun ownership. I do have doubts that he has come right out and said so though. Ive been looking for info on the OP's claim, and can find nothing that goes that far. Can you provide us with a source to these claims? Thanks ahead of time.

If he did say that, we are in big trouble.

Some things are true, even if you dont believe them.

Scares like this have been going on for years now. The 2nd Amendment is still firmly in place.

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.

Every gang in uniform parading around guns could be counted as militia.

The talk on the streets is that new legislation will probably come in the form of large taxes placed on the purchases of ammo. They figure that going after the actual guns will be difficult if not impossible. Just target the price and availability of the ammo.

True. But bullets, cases, and primers could also fall under the ammo tax.

...and? Seems reasonable to me. And I believe Americans still had guns from 1994 to 2004 when this ban was first put into place.
