Hey Dude, I took exception to one of your contributors last week, his sign name was DtM. He said Illinois State Rifle Association Director called Barak Obama and Mayor Daley (of Chicago) an Enemy. First off yes Richard Pearson did call Obama an enemy, but only an enemy of "Law abiding gunowners", not the "State" or Country. He did not make that claim against Mayor Daley.
Our Country is blessed to have a Bill of Rights, and because of that the State serves us not us serving the State. One of those Rights under the Constitution is the right to keep and bear arms, more commonly referred to as the Second Amendment. It 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". In a recent United States Supreme Court case, Washington DC vs. Heller, the Supreme Court ruled that the Second Amendment guarantees an "individuals" right to keep and bear arms. Might I add that the decision was a 5-4 decision and did cross party affiliations within the court. Thanks God there were strict constructionists who held to the objective interpretation rather than the subjective view of the Second Amendment. Many of the "gun free" counties, that existed in the Chicago area, had to change their long held policies of limiting or out right banning firearms to the citizens.
I believe that if DtM were to do a bit of research he may find that this letter, no matter how retarded he may think it is, it's a cry to action of the citizens. Banning firearms in the United States, as hard as some try, is neither sound or safe policy. In every part of the world, when firearms are banned, or confiscated you can be assured of things that will happen, crime goes up and tyranny follows. The Democratic Party, in the United States, has been trumpeting gun control for a long time. Some of the harshest laws on the books come from those areas were Democrats have a huge presence, i.e. Illinois, New York, California, Massachusetts, etc...
I'm not sure which country Mr. DtM is from but I can be certain that his view of firearms is narrow. His reading of that letter from the Illinois State Rifle Association was poor, and his understanding of this Countries history and laws are quite weak. If Barak Obama is elected President he has made no mystery of the fact that he will use the Supreme Court, and all courts for that matter, to get his policies implemented. He is essentially becoming a dictator through legal perversion of the process.
Thanks for allowing me this rant under the United States First Amendment. Always remember my door mat is always out!!!!
