The Second Amendment Isn't for Playing

The Second Amendment Isn't for Playing


Some variation of the words "for sporting purposes" can be found repeated over and over again in the interminable list of "gun control" laws burdening the American people. Given the history of those words, used that way, JPFO readers have plenty of reason to want to see them excised from American legal code, like the cancerous tumors they are.

But it's more than "merely" the fact that the "sporting purposes" requirement for firearms and ammunition appears to have been lifted directly from the gun laws of Nazi Germany, but the fact of why a government would want to limit the people's access to firearms to those that are better for recreation than for the deadly serious business of defending one's family, liberty, and life. There can be only one reason for that: the government does not wish the people to possess the means to effectively defend those things.

Go. Read the whole thing.

If it keeps going the way it has the last several years, it will get "sporty" out there. And I'll surely hate it when that day arrives.

Yes, and won't it be amazing how many "sporting" rifles and pistols there will suddenly be? Srsly, I can't imagine anyone voluntarily surrendering a firearm, here. We have at least three wolf packs, 800 lb. brown bears and 1,200 lb. moose wandering around this city, as well as a more than a few bipedal predators.

Voluntarily? NEVER.

I keep thinking about Jefferson's 'tree of liberty' quote.
And hope it doesn't come to pass...
Because we won't be able (in all cases) to tell the patriots from the others without a program!

Guffaw, civil war isn't pretty. I've seen a little of it, and it sucks. Others (like Bayou Renaissance Man) saw decades of it, and Stormbringer still sees it. We DON'T want it.

But I don't think we're going to have a choice.

"Teacher's pets" now grown up. They cannot fathom why others might fight nor the reality of 4G war.

Rev. Paul said...

Agreed, sir. But it appears to be coming, whether they're confused by the "why?" and "how?" or not.
