    I have read the second amendment. I have also read quotes by the founding fathers. By reading both I am 100% sure of what it means.
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Well I suppose then it depends on who owned it. I would argue the only role the Union needed to play was to determine if they wanted to accept WV into the Union. Anything was left up to Virginians and future West Virginians and the Confederacy.

    I do not believe the Southern States did anything wrong in seceding from the Union. I believe it was their right to do so. I think the North would have been seriously hurt economically with the South's departure.

    I agree with your assessment.

    IS this the sort of Amicus Briefs you claimed you have filed on constitutional issues?

    I never filed any briefs. I never said that. I am not a lawyer. I work for a living.

    He may have read the original version of the second amendment, but he obviously didn't understand it, especially the part that says

    "...only members of a well organized militia..."

    What could be plainer?

    A well organized militia is everyone above the age of 18.
