1. Rightful AND logical words from the former Chief Justice

though his Pick-And-Choose party thinks otherwise these days.

2. +1. Remember one of Gungeoneers explaining that the "militia" is all men 17 to 44 years of age.

 


10 U.S. Code § 246 - Militia: composition and classes

(a)The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
(b)The classes of the militia are—
(1)the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
(2)the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.

So I asked how old he was, he was well over 45. He didn't like my suggestion that he had to turn his gunz in.

2nd Amendment--

"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."

Didn't even get into whether women should have gunz based upon his argument.

3. Once upon a time there were rational, thinking republicans.

They're gone now, in hiding or feeling so fectless that they just keep their mouths shut.

The nation needs them to take their party back from the racists, extremists, fascist and crazies.

4. Even a casual reading of the Federalist Papers written by Madison,

the author of the 2nd Amendment, would give pause to any who adhere to the FRAUD the absolutists rhetoric.
