Court Rediscovers 2nd Amendment, Liberals Fear Other 'Rights' May Soon be Found
Tragedy struck leftists all across America last week when a federal appeals court reviewing the District of Columbia’s handgun ban, ruled that the right of the people to keep and bear arms cannot be infringed upon by the District. The court's inexplicable ruling was based on a "radical" interpretation of the recently rediscovered 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which 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.

Read this whole column. Mac Johnson writes a great column about this great court victory for Americans and freedom.

Dad, can I borrow the truck for an ammo run?
That's my boy!

You can have your guns. I'm for bullet control.

Daniel said...

Do you mean "buy a vest"?

just wondering said...

What kind of gun would Jesus pack?

Second Amendment Supporter said...

I'm for left-winger and liberals control.

Daniel said...

Jesus packed a sword... they didn't have guns in his day.

Luke 22:36: "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one."

but why do we get in trouble when we use our guns to control crime

Jesus was a pacifist, you jackass. Cite the scripture where it says that Jesus actually CARRIED a sword.

Rooster said...

anonymous 10:02, will you please cite the scripture where Jesus said he was a pacifist.

Was it the one where he was in the temple overturning tables and raging at the vendors?

Congrats, Daniel, for taking Luke 22:36 completely out of context.

also just wondering said...

What baby would Jesus abort.

"please cite the scripture where Jesus said he was a pacifist.

No... no, I think it was the one where he was in the garden healing the ear of the temple guard who had come to take him to his death.

Those that live by the sword die by the sword.

Rooster: Jesus may not have been a pacifist in the strictest sense of the word as it is used in modern English today, but he wasn't exactly a candidate for the cover of Soldier of Fortune magazine, either. It is beyond preposterous to think that he would carry a firearm if alive today.

The word pacifism has French and Latin roots, and both refer to an inclination toward peace. Scripture notwithstanding (there's scripture to make a case for both sides on this, as there is with virtually anything) if Daniel or Rooster want to argue that Jesus was not a pacifist in the general sense of the word, they obviously weren't paying attention in Sunday School and haven't learned much since.

And then there was Gandhi, who wrote to the British during WW2, urging them to surrender to the Nazi's (sound familiar?). After the war, when he found out about the Holocaust, he criticized the Jews (in Warsaw and other locations) for resisting. He said they should have allowed collective suicide, thus engaging in a heroic act. The lefty, anti-Americans are urging us to follow the same STUPID course. I choose to defend hearth, family, and home. You are on your own, kidiot.

I don't recall saying that Jesus was not a pacifist. I just asked you to cite the scripture that said he was. You cast aspersion saying I have not "learned much since" but it appears you have not learned to read, or at the very least comprehend, so we may be in the same boat.

While Jesus may not have carried a weapon himself, I don't recall him telling others not to. Also, read the old testament. It is full of examples where God (and therefore Jesus, if you believe in the Trinity)instructed his children to slaughter entire towns, men, women, children, and any other living thing therein.

You can respond if you like because I don't mind sitting here and calling you Goober all night long.

Oh, by the way, you still have not cited the "pacifist" scripture yet.

Rooster said...

Kaelri, just because someone is a healer does not make them a "pacifist". Go down to the local shooting range. I am sure at some point you will find a doctor hanging out.

Again, I am not saying Jesus was not a pacifist. I would have expected a little more thought from you. You seem to be an exceptionally bright and thoughtful young person and I have been fairly impressed with you over the months.

Some one asked what kind of gun would Jesus carry. Daniel said he would not carry a gun because they had not been invented. It was at this point that someone called Daniel a "Jackass". I asked this person to site a scripture showing that Jesus was a "Pacifist". The only response I got from that person was an insult.

I am still waiting for someone to cite me the appropriate scripture. I can give you the answer but I will not. I would rather see what you can come up with.

Oh, by the way...I got my Ministerial credentials in 1982, so, hit me with your best shot. I am waiting.....

Thanks so much..

Rooster: I thought the aphorism at the end of my post would be more easily recognized. Gethsemane was the context; the maxim is Jesus's admonition of Peter, who had drawn his sword and severed the man's ear.

"Then Jesus saith to him: Put up again thy sword into its place: for all that take the sword shall perish with the sword." -Matthew 26:52

The Sermon on the Mount is also fairly unambiguous:

"You have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. But I say to you not to resist evil: but if one strike thee on thy right cheek, turn to him also the other... You have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thy enemy. But I say to you, Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you..." -Matthew 5:38-44

Is there any word for that but pacifism?

Bear: name one. Name one liberal who sincerely advocates a foreign policy based on pacifism. Give me the name and tell us that that's the best one you could come up with. Good luck.

Jihadists advocate pacifism, do they?

It seems to me that you wrote up a list of people you don't like, because any person you don't like must accordingly believe in any idea you don't like.

I hope, however, that somewhere along the road of earning a high school diploma, someone taught you how to back up your claims with factual evidence. Therefore, I think it's reasonable for me to request quotes from each of those individuals in which they state their opposition to all military action whatsoever.

Given your deep hatred of these people, I'm sure you have such basic justifications readily available.

Bear, maybe you missed the news that Hilary Clinton voted for the war in Iraq and that she recently said that if she's elected president, she'll want to keep the U.S. military in Iraq. If that's pacifism, I'm Abraham Lincoln.

Pull your head out of your ignorant ass and pay attention to what's going on in the world, for a change.

In what possible sense was Ghandi a "liberal"? He was a nationalist who supported his people against the British empire.

The people who post on this blog seem to relish simplyfing the hell out of things they obviously don't understand.
