    People Control

    [High School Textbook Rewrites Second Amendment–Literally by Hillary Cherry] "The authors of United States History: Preparing for the Advanced Placement Examination have taken it upon themselves to change the Constitution of the United States. The high school textbook contains a summary of each Amendment that alters the initial intent in which they were created.

    The textbook notes the Second Amendment as, "The people have a right to keep and bear arms in a state militia."

    The actual Second Amendment reads, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed..." Full text: High School Textbook Rewrites Second Amendment–Literally Lk 22:36

    Well gee the full text of the actual amendment says "Militia" (a frequent and convenient omission by the pro-gun lobby). I think it's pretty clear what the amendment means if you just read it. Unfortunately the Supreme Court decided it means something else.

    So. . . why doesn't the 2nd Amendment include nuclear weapons?
    My heart of stone was dead to You
    Asleep within a world
    That scorned its Maker

    And I woke up to You

    It's a serious question. Nothing in the language of the Second Amendment prohibits us from arming ourselves with. . . whatever. Bows, knives, guns, swords, etc. If all these are legal, why not nukes?

    The counter to this, I would think, would be that the Founding Fathers never envisioned such firepower.

    The counter to the counter would be, the Founding Fathers only had single-shot muskets. They couldn't have imagined the conventional firepower we have today, either.

    Not really, back then every able bodied male was in a "militia" and there was no standing army.

    That said, even if you were right, that doesn't give the AP textbook a right to change the wording for their own agenda.

    That said, the tenth amendment is a better argument than the second when it comes to Federal laws. The 2nd can be used but the 10th is better.

    First of all, I actually do believe any FEDERAL bans on nukes would be unconstitutional, under the 10th amendment, not the 2nd. Now, I agree that it would be absurd for any state to legalize the possession of nuclear weapons, and I believe Murray Rothbard's argument as to why the ownership of such weapons is inherently aggressive is sound. But the fact remains that, on principle, this is a state issue. Either amend the constitution, or deal with the awful hypothetical (but practically absurd) possibility that any state would legalize nuclear weapon ownership.

    That said, the 2nd amendment refers to small arms, not ordinance. So I think that's the answer to your question.

    I don't see any text that differentiates either of the comma segments to mean a well regulated militia "as well as" each individual citizen. It's a list referring back to the topic of the sentence, a militia.

    Through a militia we keep and bear arms to protect our territory. If you understand what a militia is, then you probably totally get why this gun control situation is so screwed up. I think some people believe guns should only be in possession of law enforcement and the state's national guard. Then some people think every person should have a gun sitting on their lap.

    Guns should be the hands of non-professional locally regulated groups with strict guidelines keeping them separate from the federal government involvement. That is what I read from it. It makes zero sense to allow some fringe paranoid mountain hick the rights to have a private armory. We still need a force that we as a group regulate to ensure our security on a local level, it just shouldn't be a case of neighborhoods full of lone wolves.
    I'm not a sinner, or preacher, all I have is slight of hand.

    Yeah, tell me where the right to privacy is in the US Constitution? Seems like certain judges had a plan to circumvent the Constitution creating a new right, the right to privacy.

    Can you afford a nuclear weapon? And if so do you have a safe and secure place to store it?

    For the sake of argument, let's say I can say, "Yes," to both of those. It stands to reason that the Second Amendment--as it is currently worded and widely interpreted--should allow for individual ownership of nuclear weapons. It certainly doesn't disallow it.

    Since the time the Constitution was written, we have gone from single-shot muskets to automatic machine guns with armor-piercing bullets. A shooting spree in the 1700s was unheard of, in main because it would entail hauling several muskets around or stopping to reload after each shot.

    I'm all for recognizing man's inalienable right to protect self, kin, and property from others, but the Second Amendment is not a law written with our time in mind.
