On the Second Amendment

Just a reminder.

...the rights secured by the Second Amendment are “deeply rooted in this Nation’s history and tradition,” and “necessary to the Anglo-American regime of ordered liberty.” ...

Second, the right to bear arms is a protection against the possibility that even our own government could degenerate into tyranny, and though this may seem unlikely, this possibility should be guarded against with individual diligence.--Justice Gould, 9th Circuit, Nordyke

Gould was appointed to the 9th Circuit by Wm. Jefferson Clinton.

HT: Clay Cramer

I see not every member of the 9th Circus Court is a clown.

And what does that have to do with your wanting to pack a piece at K-Mart?

If the revolution starts are you afraid you won't have time to run home?

As usual, Grumpy, you're off-topic.

Best renew your prescription, take your dose, and then return to make a comment that's pertinent.
