The original Second Amendment post featured Beakerkin and Drummaster getting the Second Amendment wrong. The standard liberal mantra in the NE educational system is the Second Amendment refers only to the National Guard. I was corrected by Mr Beamish and perhaps Warren that apparently I am in the Militia defacto and have been so for twenty years.
The Second Amendment is the least understood Amendment in the Constitution. For much of our nations history the right to bear arms was a given. Gun control in the USA is a fairly recent event. Poe traces the genesis of the modern gun control movement to California. The Black Panthers exploited carry laws to wage a war on the police. The Black Panthers are a classic example of media malfeasence. The Black Pathers were a gang that shook down drug dealers and pimps. However even today deranged liberals talk of lunch programs. I am sure John Gotti helped a few people down on their luck but it does not erase the fact that he was a criminal.
The Second Amendment is not covered in law schools in depth . Thus few cases ever utilize a second amendment defense.
Poe traces the origin of the Second Amendment to the Anglo Saxon tradition of common defense. Englishmen were expected to defend their locale and aid law enforcement if needed. The militia system was founded in the colonies fairly early. The Pilgrims established a militia shortly after arriving, service was mandatory for free men.The role of the Militia in the Revolutionary war is well known. Poe traces the origins of the Second Amendment in the founding of the Country.
The last definition of who is a member of the militia today is Miller 1939." All males phyisically capable of acting in concert for the common defense ". The Duck is exempted as an advocate of Marxism he can not be reasonably expected to act in the common defense.
Beamish in 08, Ducky to Gitmo and 167 RIP
167 launched a new blog named Fizzhog101 and the comedic possibilities are endless.
