Exactly. Samuel Adams said it best: "How strangely will the Tools of a Tyrant pervert the plain Meaning of Words!
The meaning of the phrase "well-regulated" in the 2nd amendment The following are taken from the Oxford English Dictionary, and bracket in time the writing of the 2nd amendment: 1709: "If a liberal Education has formed in us well-regulated Appetites and worthy Inclinations." 1714: "The practice of all well-regulated courts of justice in the world." 1812: "The equation of time ... is the adjustment of the difference of time as shown by a well-regulated clock and a true sun dial." 1848: "A remissness for which I am sure every well-regulated person will blame the Mayor." 1862: "It appeared to her well-regulated mind, like a clandestine proceeding." 1894: "The newspaper, a never wanting adjunct to every well-regulated American embryo city." The phrase "well-regulated" was in common use long before 1789, and remained so for a century thereafter. It referred to the property of something being in proper working order. Something that was well-regulated was calibrated correctly, functioning as expected. Establishing government oversight of the people's arms was not only not the intent in using the phrase in the 2nd amendment, it was precisely to render the government powerless to do so that the founders wrote it.

How did this country manage to make it until 1934 when we got our first gun laws? And by the way, Al Capone and his crew did not give up a single one of their Tommy guns. Only the law abiding did, which made it easier for Al and his gang to kill with impudence..

Teachers teach. It's a difficult, demanding job and it is not compatible with firearm security. ____________________________________________________ To even suggest that people can't learn TWO things well is about the most moronic statement I've heard to date. I learned firearm handling and safety from the time I was 6 years old to the present. You have no problem teaching kids how to handle a dangerous 3200lb. vehicle that kills more people by a power of 5 than guns every year. Yet you don't even bat an eye at that.
Right. If this were the truth the blamer in chief would have put this out immediately. Not a You Tube video. But then this is for his lemmings who will believe anything he says.

There's nothing more rewarding to my soul than to visit a Palin article. It does my heart good good to see all the grey matter spattered all over the screen from the Liberal exploding heads. Palin is my heroine. Nobody does this to a Liberal melon better than Sarah. Palin 2016!

Just one more business that won't be getting any more of my hard earned money. I just refuse to take it anymore. I vote with my wallet. You want to try to infringe on my Constitutional freedom. I'm going to infringe on your bottom line. To bad more Patriots refuse to take this stance. We outnumber them.
