Damn right we're responsible for our own safety!

You can bet your last dollar (while we still have cash) that the same govt that wants to take away your firearms is the govt that absolutely, positively, cannot (nor does it want to) protect you.

'Tis always "cute" when pagans try and speak on a matter they know nothing about. Which, for liberals, is pretty much everything.

Luke 22:36
And He [Jesus] said to them, “But now, whoever has a money belt is to take it along, likewise also a bag, and whoever has no sword is to sell his coat and buy one."

Psalm 144:1
Blessed be the LORD,
my Rock,
Who trains my hands for war,
and my fingers for battle;
-

Yes, even Jesus knew what He meant when He said that, and anyone who understands that reading comprehension requires *context* can understand this as well.

History proves, Inquisitions are carried out by overzealous Christians accusing other of heresy.
It's why our founders put in the first clause of the Bill of Right,

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion"

They witnessed Religious terrors first hand.
Thank God, they had the wisdom to divide Church from state.

But, back to what I mentioned earlier, you speak incorrectly about that which you do not understand.

Nowhere is "Separation of Church and State" mentioned in the Constitution. The limitations are on the Government, not the other way 'round.

Not surprisingly, the same space that Congress once met in was also used for church services. Even a little understanding of history shows how wrong the Left is on matters such as this. But then, the Left hates the Constitution, so no wonder they fail to take the time to understand it.

The Bill of Rights is what it is & reads the way it does for a reason. They were intelligent cookies
Can't change it.

Congress, but not the individual states. In fact, it was intended as placing a limitation on the Federal Gov't interfeing with states' rights, as well as allowing for the free practice of religion.

Come on, man, we've been through this how many times since, what, 2017? I might as well just post "-" to the subject and you know what I mean. The first time you not only looked it up to reply, you even named two states that still had an official state religion on the books, albeit no longer the requiement it once was to hold state office, etc.

The Second Amendment gives adult male citizens the right to get drafted, and it's a BYOG deal - Bring Your Own Gun. The USA were broke, had no choice. And militias were routinely used to hunt down Native Americans and escaped slaves. Some official, general, whatever, would walk up to whomever they wanted and drafted them on the spot, no pay. Literally, drop the hoe, wave goodbye to the mule, gather you brothers and a sack of food and plenty of ammo, we're hitting the road. That's how it was done.

Except these were not ruled unconstitutional, just not in vogue. In fact, state churches were even allowed to collect a state tax back in the day. They were the ones that administered aid to the poor and other charities, so it made sense back then. This practice was also protected.

I went to Catholic school, for example. No problem with teaching the religion there. In public schools, however, that would be illegal as they recieve federal funding, so that could be seen as an endorsement from the Fedeal Gov't.

Congress, not individual states.
It's not a protection against religion, but against Congress intefering with the free practice of religion.

Not often, but I need to agree with you. All people are harder to oppress when they are armed.

At present one of the people I am helping to train is a young lady that is gay.

Not in America. Here they are oppressed equally, armed or unarmed.

Half truth, formed because marksmanship among the troops was so bad they needed to train for future conflicts.
It was one if not the first national organizations to allow black men.

Now we incourage men and women of all races, ethnicities, colors, ages, sexual identities to become members, receive training, and not be victims
