I like to do memes with more than one obvious message. This one has more than two. Only one has been addressed. Another is background checks for gun ownership for U.S. citizens but little concern for influx of unvetted people into this country (nothing to fear, just just women and orphans) and the other message is the disconnect this administration seems to have with what the people want!

The phrase "well-regulated" was in common use long before 1789, and remained so for a century thereafter. It referred to the property of something being in proper working order. Something that was well-regulated was calibrated correctly, functioning as expected.

Clearly too many people are not "well regulated" and it takes intervention to make sure they are. Like Background checks.

The 2nd amendment was put in place to protect the rights of the citizens of eacch state from the Federal government. It would have been ludicrous to have an Admendement giving over "control" to them. This is just a liberal twisting of the Constitution. Background checks are already in place BTW There is much more to this proposal than that. And this is not the last "proposal" by any means.

The RIGHT to bear arms is not infringed by background checks.
The RIGHT to bear arms is not infringed by banning certain guns.
The RIGHT to bear arms is not even infringed by documenting and registering guns.

In call cases we have the RIGHT to own guns. We just need to be well regulated. ;)

Banning all guns and making it crime to own one....yeah that would be infringing the RIGHT to bear arms.

PS- I am a actual gun owner. In fact I am planning on getting a new 9mm when my new pistol permit comes in (30-60 days...who knows...who cares? I can wait)

You have been here long enough, it seems, to know what a Meme is. The meme is speaking of taking guns (which, I and many others feel is the ultimate goal) but you are arguing as if I am speaking of gun control in a very limited form.

To understand the term "well-regulated Militia" in context, one has to read the entire document and understand the history and usage. Militias prior to the Constitution were the primary defense of the States, and male citizens of a certain age were often required by law to own a firearm and register as part of the Militia for his state. Militias were not disbanded under the Constitution, in fact Article 1 Section 8 clearly enumerates Congressional power to create and oversee rules, training regimens and so forth to be carried out by the States in maintaining citizen militias for the purposes of, among other things, assisting in time of war, combatting insurrection, and other purposes. Many states no longer allow citizen militias beyond the National Guard, but many do. The Framers clearly intended for militia made up of armed citizens to be part of the national defense moving forward, and provided State and federal governments with the specific, enumerated power to regulate, train and appoint militia with that in mind. Moving on, the 2d Amendment states a "well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state" as the context and rationale for the right of the People to bear arms. In this context, "well-regulated" obviously means well-trained, organized, prepared and functioning as a civilian defense force to be used for the national defense as well as for the domestic purposes set forth in Article 1 Section 8. The right to keep and bear arms belongs to the People and is a guarantee to the individual irrespective of formal militia membership... but its scope is limited to the context in which it appears and can be regulated accordingly.

The RIGHT to bear arms is not infringed by background checks.
The RIGHT to bear arms is not infringed by banning certain guns.
The RIGHT to bear arms is not infringed by documenting and registering guns.

See US v. Heller for a much more thorough explanation by much smarter people than I. ;)

Clearly you didn't read the meme and all the comments ...not suprised lol But anyway I assume you know the definition of fear and there could be other words used in its place like concern. Now, you say the right Fears the taking of guns (which is probably true) as history is replete with laws beckoning more and more laws until all resemblance of a person's rights is extinguished. Fear is a very important emotion. Without fear we would not learn we cannot touch fire or walk off a cliff. Fear sends a very quick message to the brain that something possibly dangerous to your livelihood is up and you need to think and act upon that something. Of course, without a brain, you would have no fear...like a mollusk.

Hate to tell you that, to date, science has not been able to come up with any viable method to weed out stupid people. Unless you count IQ tests. Of course some of the most prolific killers in the world had high IQs. And some very stupid people believe in gun control. So, don't fear the Stupid people with or without guns. Fear the culture that devalues human life as if it's a clump of meaningless matter.

Yes I did. Let me copy and paste it for you, since I am not sure how you dont know the meme you created yourself. You said "You want to hand over your means of protection to make it easier for come into the country". Is that not what you wrote? By your image, Im going to assume you are implying that Obama thinks this is what the American people are saying, is that right? Because
1) Again, NO ONE IS SAYING THAT. NO ONE. Nobody of any recognition is saying the American people need to turn over their guns. NO ONE. Why is that so hard to comprehend. Its a LIE, and people like you purport it.
2) LOL how is you keeping your right to have a pistol in your bedside drawer going to prevent a Terrorist from ENTERING this country, as you wrote. This meme is all around stupid.

Gun free act 1990, Joe Biden.....Chicago.....and before you start on about school zones not needing guns...keep in mind that most all mass shootings occurred in gun FREE zones!

Im not going to go into gun free zones etc.. that is not what your meme is about. You basically stated through your meme, that Obama wants to take your guns away AND that would lead to allowing terrorists to come into the county. YET you cannot back either of those claims.

Well, maybe I should have said unless you are suicidal or you live in one of the gun free zones like Chicago. In 2015, in all but 1 of the 10 top states for gun violence, over half were due to suicide...the next highest margins fell into gang violent areas and accidents. So, unless you plan to commit suicide or live in high gang area, you probably haven't much to fear.

This is an excerpt from a conservative, pro second amendment news source: "According to the Economist’s chart, your chances of dying as a result of “assault by firearm” is about 1 in 25,000. Americans also have a 1 in 514,147 chance of being killed by “firearms discharge. While still considered one of the leading causes of death in the U.S., the data certainly is at odds with the mainstream media narrative that all guns are simply mass killing machines." So, with it excluding suicide, it is still considered a leading cause of death in America, but that shouldnt be worrisome to you? 1 in 25,000 is not really that good, I mean you have a similar chance of dying in a car accident in over half the states in the US. Think about that. In half of the US, you are just as likely to be killed in a car accident than you are by a assault from a gun. So yeah, if you have ever driven on a road, you should have something to fear.

Why do I need to calm down? Besides capitalizing certain words for emphisys, I am not upset about anything and discussing this in a rational manner. I keep wondering how I am coming off upset lol.
Well actually, lol, I dont need to buy one. I own one. As well as a CWP. But I learned quickly, that carrying a gun doesnt actually help much. The benefits even may be outweighed by the danger. As my CO once told me, even if a perp is not armed, you are still bringing a gun into the fight. Meaning that if something happened and he was able to take my gun away, it would make the situation worse. This happens all the time. A guy with a CWP recently was robbed of it when it was wrestled from him by a homeless man, after he took it out and tried to warn the guy away with it. He was then shot with his own gun. Or that fact that each year police are shot by bystanders who are armed and shooting at a perp. Or the possibility that you are shot mistakenly by the police, which happened to a good sam who was trying to stop a robbery. Or of course the hundreds of deaths each years from misfiring of guns. The list goes on and on. In most of these mass shootings, I know my glock, in a panicked room full of people, up against a guy fully decked in body armor and armed with an assault weapon, is not likely to stop him, but IS likely to hurt a bystander. So its my responsible duty to choose not to carry in most circumstances.

But of course you still havent answered the original questions about your meme, but please do continue to misdirect, bring up other angles etc... when you cannot answer a simple question.

While you may find it humorous, I find it a hack of an agenda.
Of course, when one brings up very valid points, and the only thing you can say is why should you answer, I think we all know what really happened there. Its ashame you are just not grown up enough to swallow your pride, admit that you were misguided and then help to make the world a better place. Guess we all cant be like that. Toodles.
