Re: " ...the right of the People to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed "
I assume you're intentionally being obtuse.
Can't imagine why you're saying that.
Several times on this forum, certain right wingers have accused me of being a political lefty. Yet, when it comes to discussing 2d amendment rights, their criticism disappears. Being a former member of the NRA, a strong proponent of 2d amendment rights, having a law degree, and being thoroughly versed in Constitutional history, I know fully well the actual intention of our Founders.
At the time of the Constitution's enactment, there was no such thing as a police force in NYC. In fact, we did not get a force until 1825 - well after most of our Founders passed away. At no point did they contemplate giving the police life and death rights over citizens. Therefore, if they were alive today and knew what Fuhrmann did to innocents on the streets of Los Angeles, they would be the first ones to allow that city's citizens to take up arms and to summarily deal with the racist criminal.
Ain't that right, Volcana?
America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
