You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

"Chicago Mayor Offers Strict Gun Rules
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Published: July 1, 2010
CHICAGO (AP) -- With the city's gun ban certain to be overturned, Mayor Richard Daley on Thursday introduced what city officials say is the strictest handgun ordinance in the United States."
I seriously thinks a city needs to pass a ordinance banning newspapers, phones and religious books outside your home, ban the stores that sell those things and ban churches, require permits,ban convicted former felons from those things, classes and registrations in order to get those things just to prove a point. I bet everyone of those anti-2nd amendment loons who support such things being imposed for 2nd amendment rights would be screaming that mayor is a fascist,its unconstitutional and so on.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
Ultimately the phrase goes :
So, because for the security of a free state, a well regulated militia is necessary, the militia being men who are citizens but trained in the techniques of weapons and war, that these militias are well regulated. Also, the militias are meant to protect the state, which is why a sherrif can deputize individuals, with the understanding that they had been trained by the militia (the assumption and it's my understanding that almost every man was considered part of the militia between 18... can't remember the upper limit, 40+ tho)A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State
Yes, the comma here is absolutely crucial as it ties the next part as the condition...,
So, because of the first thought, that being the protection of a free state, the right of the PEOPLE (not the right of the 'militias' ) to keep and bear arms. That is to have them accessible to yourself at any time, and to use them if necessary.the right of the people to keep and bear Arms
This is a comma seperater,
I mean you could write it :shall not be infringed.
So, because of the need for protection, and the necessity of militias, the PEOPLE ALL have the right to keep and bear arms, to ensure the FREE STATE, AND BECAUSE of all that, these rights SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. If you make someone jump through a hoop you are 'infringing' on that right because he should not have to jump through that hoop. Protecting yourself is a god given right...
It's so clear cut when you look at the way the sentance was worded... the constitution and bill of rights says what it means and means what it says...
Why / how was this guy elected in the first place?? Did nobody do a background check on him or his family?? (Unless the answer is no to the first question)
