    I have two questions molten_dragon;

    Are there any other amendments in the Bill of Rights that you consider expendable and unworthy of defending?

    and

    Are there any amendments you consider important enough to spur you to action should government repeal them?

    Yeah, my thinking is politicians collectively would have to have a psychotic level of arrogance to even consider it as a possible political move. Then They would have to find an enforcement mechanism because I'm certain they would get a lot of badges turned in due to the officials not wanting to get shot dead for someone else's **** up.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    IF the British and Australians have taught us anything is that politicians who wish to disarm the populace will use a tragedy involving a firearm to try to ban and or severely restrict firearms after decades of severe anti-gun laws that have gradually disarmed a lot of people and made those who never fired a firearm scared of firearms and very willing to accept a ban. Baby steps.

    "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"

    True, this is why I fight so hard here and hope others will as well. One mass shooting in Australia was all it took, I don't want that here.

    I'd up my husband's life insurance because the old coot would grab his shotgun, jump in his truck and gun down the first politician/judge he happened upon that had supported the ban.

    Then I'd have my glock gold-plated, and wait for the revolution. What the hell, maybe I'd even mount wheels on my oxygen tank and lead the damned thing myself!

    Where exactly did you make the jump to rape and pillaging of citizens from a disagreement about the meaning of language?

    Capital Punishment would definately be an effective deterrent, providing said politician wasn't suicidal or stark raving mad.

    All in favor say aye___AYE!

    History has shown us that the least tolerant of dissention are by far the communists.

    100 million murdered in the name of equality and social justice__And this was after the revolutions.
    engaging in tyranny would require a politician to crap on the constitution.

    trust me, people like sarah brady, josh sugarmann, diane feinswein and chuck schumer have orgasms when they hear about stuff like Columbine of the VT massacres.

    I didn't make that jump-it was your interpretation of what you hoped I said

    Something else to think about is the bigger picture. If the United States clashed in civil war again, other countries around the world might take advantage of this.
