The NRA only supports a bastardized version of the antiquated second amendment.

"Today at the NRA’s headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia, oversized letters on the facade no longer refer to “marksmanship” and “safety.” Instead, the Second Amendment is emblazoned on a wall of the building’s lobby. Visitors might not notice that the text is incomplete. It reads:

“.. the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

The first half—the part about the well regulated militia—has been edited out."



Fuckers even lie about what they say they support...and the lie is enshrined in carved granite.

Rest of article is reference quality information of all things second amendment.

And proven, over time, to be rather effective. They are a Russian agent and have been acting to bring us to this state of affairs for some time, the results are so obvious at this point.

I was a member (for a year) back when “marksmanship” and especially “safety” meant something... over 40 years ago.

Repeal is never going to happen. Repeal of the second amendment is a fantasy and in reality, it would be fabulously difficult to achieve, because it requires a 2/3 vote by the populace and the opening of a Constitutional Convention, which is a Pandora's box in and unto itself, as it lays bare the ENTIRE text of the Constitution for amendment from the floor. Not.going.to.happen.

So. let's seize on the militia part...let's push to make every gun owner register with a local militia... maybe administered by the National Guard...and then they have to drill one weekend a month with that militia and are subject to being called up to the military if of age,or serve in some technical capacity if over age, in the case of a war. They can't have it both ways.... we need the guns because... militia... we won't serve in a militia.

Just gassing here, of course, but that would make the cheese more binding so to speak.
