This post is for every clear thinking, logical, common sense American citizen who comprehends the pickle we Americans find ourselves in today.

 

Those of you who are NRA supporting gun nuts, and Westboro Baptist “church” idiots, please ignore this article. Go polish your gun barrel or clean an AK, while I talk to reasonable human beings.

 

You who stumbled into that latter category, why on earth are you reading anything on this blog anyway?

 

The Second Amendment

 

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.

 

In 2008 and 2010, the Supreme Court issued two landmark decisions concerning the Second Amendment. In District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.

 

In dicta, the Court listed many longstanding prohibitions and restrictions on firearms possession as being consistent with the Second Amendment. In McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 3025 (2010), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment limits state and local governments to the same extent that it limits the federal government.

 

There are several versions of the text of the Second Amendment, each with slight capitalization and punctuation differences, found in the official documents surrounding the adoption of the Bill of Rights. One version was passed by the Congress, while another is found in the copies distributed to the States and then ratified by them.

 

 

As passed by the Congress:

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.
 
 

As ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, Secretary of State:

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.

 

The original hand-written copy of the Bill of Rights, approved by the House and Senate, was prepared by scribe William Lambert and resides in the National Archives.

 

 

December 15, 1791

This is the date the 2nd amendment was drafted and signed by our none too bright forefathers. See, they were none too bright because they neglected to include a clause against mentally ill, gun crazed, macho testosterone driven (both male & female) Americans with no regard for human life,….owning assault weapons and automatic handguns.

 

On December 15, 1791, there were flintlock pistols and black powder muskets and THOSE weapons and THOSE weapons only were what the great caucasian forefathers were covering in the 2nd amendment, when they gave Americans the right to bear arms in order to form a well regulated militia. 

 

 

A Well Regulated Militia

We have the United States Armed Forces, a well regulated militia if there ever was one, and with the United States Armed Forces, we have no need for a well regulated militia to have access to weapons of any type, let alone Bushmaster .233’s, AK-47’s, AR-15’s, all assault rifles……or Glock & Sig Sauer automatic handguns with clips holding 17 rounds.

 

OH….I almost forgot the National Guard, Border Patrol, I.C.E, C.I.A., F.B.I., N.S.A., Homeland Security, all local state and town & city law enforcement agencies.

 

If the Army, AirForce, Navy, Marines, Special Forces, SEAL Team 6, Green Berets and Army Rangers (I saved the best for last) can’t save America, I seriously doubt some gun crazed American, all hopped up on beer or meth, running from door to door, aiming to shoot anything that is different looking than him/herself….is the answer to safety & security for American citizens.

 

The National Rifle Association (NRA)

 

Lets be very clear about what the NRA are: They are a group of humans who lobby in Washington D.C. for the express purpose of ensuring the profits of all armaments and weapons manufactures, continue to roll in, making billions of dollars in revenues annually. 

 

The NRA has no other earthly purpose. The NRA does not concern itself with the 2nd amendment rights, other than using the 2nd amendment to get simple minded Americans to line up to support the billions of dollars in profit The NRA IS concerned about securing for every gun and ammunition maker in the free world.

 

The NRA does NOT care one bit for the United States Constitution…..except using it as a tool to further it’s own profitable agenda.

 

The NRA is guilty of lobbying lawmakers in D.C. and supplying those politicians with thousands of dollars in campaign contributions, to ensure those elected official vote against any and all gun control laws. IF an elected politician goes against The NRA, then The NRA works financially to make sure that politician loses re-election to a pro-NRA replacement.

 

End of The NRA story.

 

 

Some Common Sense & Logic

 

You see, the plain simple facts and truth is the U.S. Constitution was written during a time in “history” when things were very different. The 2nd amendment does not give you, the average everyday American citizen, the right to bear arms UNLESS you are bearing those arms for the express reason of forming a well regulated militia, which we already have.  Not stockpiling for doomsday preparation or the fall of the economy or because a person of color moved into “your” neighborhood.

 

If you can read the 2nd amendment AND comprehend what you read, you will see you have no legal standing to continue to scream and yell for your 2nd amendment right to bear arms.

 

 

In Conclusion

 

If you want to follow the 2nd amendment and do what the forefathers wanted you to do as an American, then you can go out and purchase a flintlock pistol, and a few black powder muskets. The 2nd amendment has NO provision for you to bear arms unless you are forming a well regulated militia. The 2nd amendment does not allow you to own automatic handguns or assault weapons.

 

So sorry.

 

 

Here are a few more reasons Americans must have no legal Constitutional rights to handguns and assault weapons:

  3. Go Suck A Dick Mr. Brown.

  4. Reblogged this on Rational Opinions Blog and commented:
    A wonderful common Sense interpretation of the 2nd Amendment.

  5. All you total totalitarians should just move to france or some other place, maybe you’d be happy there? My family has been in this country since 1656, so you move, i’m staying. I was here first.

    • I’d be happy if and when you just Go Suck A Dick….instead of attempting to tell me what to do. Take care of your own dumbass and let me take care of me. Have a nice weekend, moron.

      ( ° ͜ʖ ͡°)

      ♥ ❀ ✿ Namaste ❀ ✿ ♥

    • Actually, fuckface, my ancestors, the Pawnee Indians, were here before your knuckle dragging asslicking family.

  6. I love your one person at a time approach. You identify the victims. Each is a special human being and each was a special human being. The “was” is crushing. Thank you! Micheline

    • When you really think about it Ms. Micheline, that exactly how we must think of these victims of our own selfishness…one person at a time. Did you know since Sandy Hook Elementary School, on December 14th, 2012, American has lost 3,700 human lives? Thats 135 days ago.

  7. Reblogged this on AMERICAN LIBERAL TIMES and commented:
    I absolutely think this blog post from “The Obamacrat” should be read by as many people as are gifted with the ability to read and understand – – -

    • Thank you Mr. Liming for reblogging this but also for those words of support. I am indeed honored.

  8. First of all you keep exploiting those images of the innocents in sandy hook then u use the hooded figure of a violent young GANG Member that was shot by a certified and licensed armed guard, even the kids violent parents couldn’t agree on the kids attitude or relative state of mind, 2nd and pay close attention, OF ALL THE VIOLENCE CAUSED BY (attention) …. PEOPLE WITH GUNS … NOT A SINGLE GUN WAS A LEGALLY REGISTERED GUN. therefore your complete argument is moot, dumbass. Whether the Supreme Court has ruled one way or another. if the Supreme Court with it current lack of GOP standards and obvious liberal views decided to ratify the 2nd amendment to eliminate all guns from American homes there would indeed be bloodshed and WE ACTIVE GUN OWNING NRA MEMBERS WOULD QUITE OBVIOUSLY WIN THAT CONFLICT. lets hope for the sake of all you obamacrats that the upcoming revolution is not split along a) party lines or b) pro and anti second amendment rights. Because the only way you and yours would have a chance is if the BLOODS and the CRIPS would join together in solidarity and use their illegally obtained and stolen GUNS to fight against a (PAY VERY CLOSE ATTENTION) well armed (and because of gun laws) well trained and sane law abiding clear headed the majority of which are drug and alcohol free (also thanks to gun laws) ….MILITIA !!!!!!! so in the inevitable event of our country’s next AMERICAN REVOLUTION the same party that came through as victors the GRAND OL’ PARTY will do so again. …. ( i guess you people all forget that the term democrat is spun from a southern held tradition that allowed the slave owners to unite and win their prospective elections the combined the words democracy and autocrat. Autocrat being the operative word meaning self governed ) all of a sudden a nigger is a democrat come on really? And finally in conclusion just as an assignment so to speak I would like for you to research a weeks worth of homicides by crazy insane wacked out nut jobs and make a distinction between the only thing YOU feel is important in these cases the use of guns. (The truth is too many released from prison because some liberal politician felt sorry for the poor nut bag [remember the tale of Hannibal Lector who in this story depended on his constitutional rights to execute an escape]…) I assure you there are far more committed with out benefit of an offending gun! and actually in most cases the offender used his bare hands or a kitchen knife (are those next?) and make that point 1st) and for point 2nd) go ahead and research all gun violence in pick a random odd number of major city’s IE: Los Angeles Chicago Atlanta Detroit Dallas New York Miami etc…. And pick an equal number (odd of course) of city’s with the honorable distinction of being called safest. What you are looking for is overall A) legal registered weapons in the hand of their owners … B) conviction rates and repeat offenders C) the heinous nature of the crime (did a person get shot on private property or on “the wrong street” or “my neighborhood” D) were any called justifiable…… Or show me a statistic you feel is important and I promise to agree with any thing you can show where the NRA is flawed or wrong because at the end of the day I can’t fix it if I don’t know it’s broke ….. The moral is this the NRA has always fixed what is broken and liberals try to find a way to work the flaw into the situation so as not to offend any person! I would rather piss off some nigger gang members than take away every Americans given right to bare arms!!!! I PLEDGE MY ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG, OF THESE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STANDS ONE NATION, FREE TO FOLLOW ANY PEACEFUL IDEOLOGY OF YOUR CHOOSING, INDIVISIBLE WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL. extra credit will be given for a final research assignment …. Use a dictionary and an encyclopedia to understand what these words mean!!!!!

    • First of all go fuck yourself. And second of all…..suck a dick. Have a very nice weekend while doing those things I suggest. ;-) P.S. Don’t ever return to this blog.

  10. Hey Jueseppi,

    I learned something from this post and it shores up my ire and outrage at the pro-gun puppets. I call them puppets only because so many of them are clearly being manipulated by the gun lobby. That is the nice excuse I give for their parroting of non-factual data.

    Reading is fundamental PERIOD.

    Thanks you for this very informative post.

    P.S. – The comments are a hoot LMAO.

    • Yeah…when you post something about old ass caucasian males of 2013 and their connection to a document written by old ass caucasian males from 1791….it makes all the small penis having males and their penis wanting female counterparts….wake the “Samuel L. Jackson” up.

      The comments are a hoot….I love to see hooting by dumbasses. ;-)

  11. I have been saying this for years! Damn the simple minded! The 2nd Amendment relates only in terms of a well regulated militia. That is the context in which it was written, and its’ only intent.

    Peace is accomplished by, the most intelligent. The least intelligent keep fighting for their individual 2nd Amendment Rights of which there are none.

    The only reason there is no peace is, the most intelligent who understand the Constitution do not enforce the Constitution, and just maybe, they aren’t as intelligent as they give themselves credit for.

    And because nobody’s intelligent, we have school group assassinations that never had to happen.

    It is time to enforce the 2nd Amendment, as written. Start picking up guns from the bad guys on the streets.

    • Mr Dave, your comment has made my year. You put is to simply and so powerfully. Now explain to me why 311 + million Americans can’t comprehend the 2nd amendment?

      I wish you, your family & friends a wonderfully joyous and healthy, safe, fun Happy New Year….See you right back here next year….Namaste.

  12. The term militia or irregular army, is commonly used today to refer to a military force composed of ordinary citizens to provide defense, emergency law enforcement, or paramilitary service, in times of emergency without being paid a regular salary or committed to a fixed term of service.

    • I don’t care what the term means today….as mentioned in the post, we have enough military power to defend us from all forces foreign and domestic. Relinquish the fuckin guns.

      Who will die next? You? Me? Our children?

  13. LOL! First time I read through the comments, but thanks for this. I wrote the post that tracks back to this and this was a very insightful piece. Well done! :)

    • Thank you Ms. Diva Bleu….I wonder it it will convince anyone? I want to wish you, your family & friends a wonderfully joyous and healthy, safe, fun Happy New Year….Namaste

  14. [...] The Second Amendment Explained: 2nd Amendment Facts Gun Nuts Overlook. [...]

  15. In 2008, the U.S. Supreme Court was nally compelled to rule on interpreting the Second Amendment: that it is an individual right intimately tied to the natural right of self-defense and that, while “bearing arms” implies carrying a weapon “for the purpose of ‘oensive or defensive action,’ it in no way connotes participation in a structured military organization

    • Bob you’re a fuckin idiot, and your fuckin idiot comments are going where fuckin idiot comments go….the trash.

      Here’s why guns will eventually be banned……

      • Jueseppi,

        Bob is right. He said exactly what the court in the Heller case said. The Supreme Court held in Heller that we had the right to own guns for our personal self-defense. Specifically, there can be no bans on hand guns. The Heller court said that “unusual” weapons can be banned, meaning assault weapons like AK-47s are probably fair game.

        One can opine that the Heller court got it wrong and hope that a new court someday reverses the Heller decision, but nobody can deny that the law as it stands today is that the 2nd Amendment applies to more than just a militia.

      • Bob’s an idiot…and anyone who agrees with Bob is also an idiot. The The Supreme Court has been wrong in recent memory, this is the same Supreme Court that ruled corporations are people. The Supreme Court is interested in protecting the gun manufacturers and their profit margins.

        The second amendment was written in a time when it absofuckinlutely applied to NOTHING in 2012.

        Now go back and re read what I wrote in this post, and you find where I am wrong in ANYthing I wrote. ;-)

      • I have learned over years of dealing with many idiots that I don’t suffer them lightly, and so anything you attempt to post here that smells of idiocy, will only make it as far as the trash can, where smelly things usually end up.

        Common sense, logic & critical thinking guide me to believe and stand on the premise that a piece of legislation/document that was written on December 15, 1791, can not possibly have relevance in Twenty Twelve.

        Anyone who argues that it does, including you AND The Supreme Idiots Court, can be labeled as your wife labels you. ;-) Enjoy your weekend, we are finished, unless you can type some intelligent logic response.

      • First of all, the right to keep and bear arms was not “given” by the Constitution. The Constitution did not create or grant any rights. It simply states and declares rights that people have (such rights were “self evident”), and seeks to protect them, but we possess all of our rights independent of the Constitution or any other document.

        The 2nd Amendment was intended to ensure that people were not deprived of their rights and actual ability to protect themselves, their families, property, liberty and state–from criminals, foreign threats and their own government, should it become tyrannical (such as the one they had just fought a bloody war to remove).

        Let’s not forget that the catalyst for the actual fighting of the American War for Independence was the British attempts to confiscate the colonists’ arms and munitions at Concord and Lexington, Mass.

        The 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads:
        “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”

        Some folks want to say that “the people” means the STATE, but this is not so… it means individuals, in the same context as the 1st Amendment, which guarantees that “the people” have a right to assemble peaceably, and the 4th Amendment’s protection of “the people” from unreasonable searches and seizures. Moreover, the 10th Amendment makes it clear that “the states” and “the people” are not synonymous.

        Some folks want to say that because the word “regulated” appears in the 2nd Amendment, this somehow gives government the power to control the right to keep and bear arms. This is not so. “Regulated,” in this sense, should be understood to mean, well disciplined, practiced and organized–in other words efficient and orderly. By people exercising their rights to keep and bear arms, this leads to a well regulated militia through their practice and shooting activities, and keep in check the ability of any other military force to threaten our free country.

        It is true, that the U.S. Constitution grants Congress the authority to regulate the militia, but (until very recent gun-control legislation) this was always considered to be a prescriptive power, and never a proscriptive power. A prescriptive power could require men to keep arms and practice or drill every so often, while a proscriptive power might prohibit certain activities. Certainly, the civil authority had the power to require the militia to keep itself well-equipped and drilled, but the wording of the 2nd Amendment clearly shows that the Constitution did not intend to allow the government any authority to restrict or infringe upon the peoples’ ability and right to arm themselves and drill.

        The 2nd Amendment states generally that the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed–that means by anyone, or any level of government (city, municipal, county, state or federal).

        Moreover, the grammar of the 2nd Amendment needs to be read as two distinct clauses. The first clause is a statement of fact:
        Whereas, “A well-regulated militia, being necessary for the security of a free state …”[That means: A well-equipped, organized and disciplined militia (all able-bodied men over the age of 16) is A NECESSITY for the security of A FREE STATE] …

        The second clause is the conclusion:
        … therefore, “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” [That means ... the RIGHT of the each person to keep (possess, own, hold) and bear (carry, wear and use) arms (weapons capable of defending people, their families, property and state) SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.]

        Moreover, it is important to point out that a government might be able to create security in a state by some other means, but this is the manner in which security is preserved in a FREE state.

        NOW TELL ME TO STAY OFF YOUR MORONIC BLOG.
        I AM A VIET VET,PROUD TO SERVE,AND AM NOT GOING TO LET
        IDIOTS LIKE YOU TRY TO TAKE MY RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS. THIS IS AN INALIENABLE RIGHT WHICH WAS PUT THERE FOR THAT REASON. BLOOD HAS NOT BEEN SHED FOR OUR RIGHTS TO GO DOWN JUST BECAUSE OF SOME COWARDS LIKE LANZA AND HOLMES. Yes, what they did was horrible and pathetic, but this
        has no bearing on getting my rights taken away. GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH, I BELIEVE IN THAT, PERIOD. DO YOU?

      • Joe, you’re a dumbfuck. the first run on sentence/paragraph you typed proves you don’t know your anus from a gopher hole. Go get an education on civics and the U.S. Constitution you idiot.

        I served in the Rangers ans we lead the muthafuckin way asswipe. And yes, stay the fuck off my blog you stupid piece of feces.

  16. [...] NOT meant for regular people to just collect and store guns; it was meant, as so eloquently put in this post I saw in my Twitter feed, for the formation of  “…a well regulated Militia.”  Last I checked, we have [...]

  17. You have the wrong picture on Ms. Davino.
    Other than that I agree with you.

  18. President Barack Obama comforting marvelous speech last night … May we never grieve again … Amen …

  19. Extremely well stated and great breakdown on the facts and details. Thank you, now if we can just get “All” the people of this great US of A to GET IT…we would be halfway there to a better understanding and place for our country. Without rounds flying like free popcorn everywhere. We have Got To Do Something Better than where we stand today in America, we must! This is just not the way we are meant to live and die. I know money rules but we proved by the President’s re-election that money can’t and won’t buy everything if we won’t allow it to! Perfect piece and the timing couldn’t be better Mr Hack. Keep Doing You Sir!
