beardedbruce BS: Guns in America (236* d) RE: BS: Guns in America 02 May 18


"I AM pro-strong, effective, enforceable, and enforced gun-regulation, "

As am I, as I have stated repeatedly here.


"in order to comply with the requirements of The Sacred Second, you are required to be a part of a 'well-regulated militia'."

Nope. Not a valid statement, by law: In District of Columbia v. Heller (2008), the Supreme Court did not accept this view, remarking that the English right at the time of the passing of the English Bill of Rights was "clearly an individual right, having nothing whatsoever to do with service in the militia" and that it was a right not to be disarmed by the Crown and was not the granting of a new right to have arms.




1st: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

2nd: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

4th: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects,[a] against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

Nope. The right of the people refers to ALL citizens.
