Gun control idiots

icon

Sigh:

A New York newspaper has sparked outrage by publishing a detailed map with thousands of names and addresses of gun permit holders.

What would you expect though?

“Don’t you idiots realise you have just classified the law-abiding gun-owning citizen with sex offenders who have been released from prison?” wrote one user, identified as Sheila Gray.  “You also have told the street thugs where the armed homes are and where there are no guns.”

Sadly, Sheila, they do not realize, they don’t think, period.    To them, if children are murdered, their response is to disarm children’s protectors even further, to encourage further murders.    And by publishing the names of the armed, all they’ve done is show criminals where the unarmed homes are.

Idiots. Utter fruit cakes.   I see civil war coming up in America, which is what Them would like to see.

    Given New York’s a Dem stronghold I can see why they tried this here…

    I seem to recall something about the right to bear arms in the English Bill of Rights, too……..

    Julia – yes, predictable.

    Ian – You’re very much right. Tracking it down is the issue.

    Fortunately, this is one the leftist Daily Kos cannot worm their way out of:

    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 did “militia” mean to the framers? Article 6 of the Articles of Confederation had required that:

    It’s irrelevant what the militia meant at the time, which was merely the context at the time of writing.

    The bottom line, as everyone reading this knows, is:

    the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed

    All the other skewing is leftist attempts to overturn what has been held to be the right of the American people since that date. In law, precedent is important and in US law, it has been interpreted to mean exactly what the words say.

    On June 26, 2008, in District of Columbia v. Heller (PDF), the United States Supreme Court issued its first decision since 1939 interpreting the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution. The Court ruled that the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution confers an individual right to possess a firearm for traditionally lawful purposes such as self-defense. It also ruled that two District of Columbia provisions, one that banned handguns and one that required lawful firearms in the home to be disassembled or trigger-locked, violate this right.

    And:

    In 2008 and 2010, the Supreme Court issued two landmark decisions concerning the Second Amendment. In District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia[1][2] and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. In dicta, the Court listed many longstanding prohibitions and restrictions on firearms possession as being consistent with the Second Amendment.[3] In McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 3025 (2010), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment limits state and local governments to the same extent that it limits the federal government.[4]

    Let’s repeat that:

    the Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia

    Nice try, Twilight.

    Nice bit of research, James. Pity our own Bill of Rights isn’t treated as part of the constitution any more.

    The Second Amendment was always about individual rights; it has only been in the last few decades that the left has tried to make it otherwise.

    One of the things that helped trigger the American Revolution was the fact that the British tried to disarm the colonists.

    The first gun control laws were passed after the War Between the States; the southern states passed laws against black people keeping and bearing firearms, which was their right under law.

    “No freeman shall be debarred the use of arms.”
    – Thomas Jefferson

    “Americans have the right and advantage of being armed – unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”
    – James Madison

    “Are we at last brought to such a humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our own defense?”
    – Patrick Henry
