Justices extend gun owner rights nationwide

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Supreme Court held Monday that the Constitution’s Second Amendment restrains government’s ability to significantly limit “the right to keep and bear arms,” advancing a recent trend by the John Roberts-led bench to embrace gun rights.

By a narrow, 5-4 vote, the justices also signaled, however, that some limitations on the right could survive legal challenges.

Writing for the court in a case involving restrictive laws in Chicago and one of its suburbs, Justice Samuel Alito said that the Second Amendment right “applies equally to the federal government and the states.”

The court was split along familiar ideological lines, with five conservative-moderate justices in favor of gun rights and four liberals opposed. Chief Justice Roberts voted with the majority.

Two years ago, the court declared that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess guns, at least for purposes of self-defense in the home.

I am, have always been, and will continue to be a supporter of the Second Amendment, I will be that supporter until the day I die. That will be the day they can have MY guns, the day I die. Not one day sooner!

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.

What part of that is so hard for LIBERAL law makers and bleeding heart gun grabbers to fully understand?

Militia – noun
1. a body of citizens enrolled for military service, and called out periodically for drill but serving full time only in emergencies.
2. a body of citizen soldiers as distinguished from professional soldiers.
3. all able-bodied males considered by law eligible for military service.
4. a body of citizens organized in a paramilitary group and typically regarding themselves as defenders of individual rights against the presumed interference of the federal government.

We, The People, we ARE that militia!

We all know that the military is supposed to be the protector of the land, but let me pose this to my readers; what happens when the military isn’t enough? What happens when the military is led by a Commander in Chief that is NOT an American? A CiC that has but one desire in his heart? That desire being the total destruction of the USA as we know it? A CiC that isn’t adverse to destroying the United States military if that’s what it takes to fulfill HIS dream?

An armed American is also a defender of THIS nation. We are the back-up to the U.S. military, and we are the last line of defense against an oppressive regime, one much similar to what we now see in the White House.

If this nation were to be attacked with nuclear weapons, a militia is a moot point until AFTER the attack. A militia will be the survivors, and once we can see what’s left of this nation and our military, make NO mistake, We, The People, would once again be called upon to defend what is ours and what this nation stands for!

Do you know why the United States wasn’t invaded during WWII? It actually had very little to do with our military capabilities.

“You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.” – Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto (Japanese Navy)
