No one needs permission to own a gun. If you want one you can get one, the world of today will provide. At a higher cost of course. As sad as it may be people are arming themselves against the future anarchy that they perceive. Drug cartels invading at the southern border, Terrorist incursions, street gang warfare, and now a government that appears to want to become "over controlling" and is dis-functional. THe governments economic failures are adding to the fear. We see & fear the decline.

The people are the malitia just as I stated in my post where I posted the entire 2nd amendment or can you not read? The saecond amendment states in the first 4 words "A well regulated Militia". DO YOU SEE THE KEY WORD DEAF? "REGULATED".
You can not pick and chose only the parts that you agree with like ONLY the last 14 words. YOU HAVE TO GO BY THE ENTIRE AMENDMENT.

The 2nd Amendment also says... The rihgts of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. It did NOT say the rights of the STATES, or rights of the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, nor rights of the MILITIAS... it said PEOPLE. As in WE THE PEOPLE.

Yes it didn't say what guns. It said ARMS, the same ARMS the militia had, which were the same arms the ARMY had.

Don't try to twist the Constitution to say what you want it to say. They wrote it in PLAIN ENGLISH.

I did not say the word guns in any of my post either Deaf. Maybe you should change your user name to BLIND. Guess the regulators by authority of the 2nd Amendment should regulate the ARMS to be the same ARMS as were in use at the time the 2nd Amendment was ratified. Just saying because all of you t-publicans keep saying you want to go back to the era the Constitution was written.

You also forgot the comma (,) after the word ARMS.

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.
#1. the 2nd amendment does not state what kind of Arms you are allowed to keep.
#2. A well regulated Militia means there will be regulation imposed on the melitia (people) by the governing authority of the Malitia which means the government. The congress & President has the power afforded it by the Constitution to regulate the ARMS.

Everyone is against the gun laws trying to be passed. Saying it isn't the gun but the person behind it. What everyone seems to be missing is the fact that they are not trying to take any guns away from law abiding citizens. They are all in an uproar screaming you cannnot take my guns away!!! Idiots, listen to what is being said; They want to try to keep guns away from felons and people with a bad criminal record that should not have a gun!! No, it's not going to be easy, You can keep your gun!

Pall, you are posting to people who have nothing but hate, bitterness, thinly-veiled racism, loathing for government, and I/me/mine attitudes...apparently they can't read or listen to the truth...instead, they worship the liars on faux news, rush, hannity, beck, etc...I wish you much luck in trying to educate redneck gun-toting Texans to the truth...having tried for several years to do the same, I KNOW you're fignting a losing battle...but go ahead, and good luck.

Well, you got one thing right. A loathing for the gov't. The rest are attributes of the left, both in the Democrat and Republican parties.
