  •  The Second Amendment... (2+ / 0-)

    The Second Amendment gives the People's Militia (set up, paid for, and well-regulated BY CONGRESS via Article I, Section 8 ) the right to keep and bear arms. It does NOT give rogue individuals the right to arm themselves to the teeth on a whim.

    Pass background check legislation for ALL gun purchases EXCEPT those by the 21st century's People's Militia -- the National Guard. THE GUARD alone has Second Amendment rights.

    Support the Fair Wages Tariff!

      The militia is a segment of the population that is larger than the national guard. The national guard is a sub-segment of the group of people that are in the militia.

      In terms of numbers of people
      Population > Militia > Nat'l Guard.

      Furthermore, congress is not granted exclusivity.
