GUN CONTROL? HELL NO!


GUN CONTROL? HELL NO!







Ha! Can you imagine what would happen, if this country were to prohibit Americans the right to bear arms?!

The terrorist would have a field day with us!

If millions of illegal aliens find ways of entering this country, what makes you think the terrorist wouldn't, either?!
Or just maybe they're already here!! Oh, and you better believe they'd bring their guns and dull knives with them!!

Oh, and another thing! Billions of American dollars are being spent to protect Iraq. Why not start spending just a WEEEEE bit of it here, to protect children and teachers in schools?!

DON'T YOU THINK THESE MEN KNEW FROM EXPERIENCE WHAT THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT??!! PLEASE R-E-A-D ALL OF THIS!!

UPDATE: PLEASE READ THIS, ALSO:
A DAUGHTER'S REGRET - SUZANNA HUPP

Thank you for the link [info]garzan

"In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up."
- Martin Niemöller

"In America they came first for the right to keep and bear arms, and I didn't speak up because I didn't own a gun. Then they came for freedom of religion, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a member of an unpopular sect like the Branch Davidians. Then they came for the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't related to a little Cuban boy whose mother died trying to give her son freedom. Then they came for the right against self-incrimination, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Taiwanese-American scientist held in solitary confinement until I confessed to something I didn't do. Then they came for freedom of speech, and by that time no one was left to speak up."
- John Leming

"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, polkers, or whatever else was at hand? After all, you knew ahead of time that those bluecaps were out at night for no good purpose. And you could be sure ahead of time that you'd be cracking the skull of a cutthroat. Or what about the Black Maria sitting out there on the street with one lonely chauffeur -- what if it had been driven off or its tires spiked. The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!

If... if... We didn't love freedom enough. And even more - we had no awareness of the real situation. We spent ourselves in one unrestrained outburst in 1917, and then we hurried to submit. We submitted with pleasure! ... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward."
- Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn,
The Gulag Archipelago: 1918-1956

"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence. From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good."
- George Washington

"You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the struggle for independence."
- Charles A. Beard


"No freeman shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
- Thomas Jefferson.

"The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium (safeguard) of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them."
- U.S. Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story, 1833

"The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed."
- Alexander Hamilton.

"To prohibit a citizen from wearing or carrying a war arm . . . is an unwarranted restriction upon the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of a constitutional privilege."
- Arkansas Supreme Court, 1878

"Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest."
- Mahatma Gandhi in "Gandhi, An Autobiography"

"...to disarm the people (is) the best and most effective way to enslave them..."
- George Mason


"The only good bureaucrat is one with a pistol at his head. Put it in his hand and it's good-by to the Bill of Rights."
- H. L. Mencken (1880-1956)

"A woman who demands further gun control legislation is like a chicken who roots for Colonel Sanders."
- Larry Elder

"The supposed quietude of a good man allures the ruffian; while on the other hand, arms like laws discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. The balance of power is the scale of peace. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside...Horrid mischief would ensue were one half the world deprived the use of them...the weak will become a prey to the strong."
- Thomas Paine

In 1982, Kennesaw, Georgia passed a city gun ordinance that required heads of households to keep at least one firearm in their homes. Crimes against persons which include homicide, rape, armed robbery, aggravated assault, and burglary, plummeted 74 percent the first year, dropped another 45 percent the next year, and has remained notably low ever since, despite a doubling of the population. From 1983 to 1993, armed robberies averaged a mere 1.6 annually, rapes 1.5, and murders (none with firearms) 0.2.

the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed
That's my favorite quote of all.

I says it all in a nut shell!

Technically it doesn't have the first or the third comma if I remember correctly.

Maybe...maybe not. Some would argue that changing the comma structure dramatically changes the structure (and thus meaning) of the sentence.

Grammar is everything
If the sentence is spelled with all 3 commas, that means that "shall not be infringed" is mofifying 2 different statements and the right to bear arms is independent of a well regulated militia. Without them, one could argue that the purpose of the right to bear arms is qualified by the need for a militia--which leaves the door open for a lot of debate.

Personally, I'm all for the right to bear arms, but I think it's worth conceding that the Founding Fathers didn't have in mind 3 guys in a Durango with AK-47s.

Also, while a gun may be a deterrent or defense of a crime at times, it's worth mentioning that it doesn't always work--a great example is when President Reagan was shot in the chest while surrounded by a heavily armed group of the best trained operatives in the world, the Secret Service.

Ultimately, I think there's a lot of foom for debate on this issue.
