At daybreak on December 29, 1890 at Wounded Knee South Dakota the US government took the guns away from Big Foot's band of Lakota.  300 of the 350 were shot by the US government that same day.  Being disarmed has never worked out well.

Err ... Yup. One of several sad days in American history. ... with more to come if we are ever disarmed.

The second amendment to me includes the right of the people to to keep and bear arms with burst and full auto....nothing less. It is not at its core about self defense in the home.

The Heller decision did not get it all right.

We might technically have not been disarmed, but we are certainly disadvantaged. The two historical pictures above include then state of the art military arms.

Very good point Tom.
For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

I agree, Ace. We do hate the thought of being slaughtered like a bunch of cattle.  You got it right for once.

Been watching the impeachment, Yep there is hate and the same people that demonstrate their hate would be using their time to take our God given rights if they weren't trying to impeach the President.  Blessings are often disguised, and we must look for them.

yup, and we may have just gotten one   :cheesy:
What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated.
