Show me where in the Second Amendment that arms are restricted to the home. For simplicity, here is the text: "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. " I think we can all agree that the Bill of Rights is a national document, right? It necessarily follows, then, that "State" in this context appropriately refers to the nation; therefore, it also follows that the restriction on carry is restricted to within national borders. That is our collective "home".
That's right ... he didn't see Hitler's Germany rounding up the Jews and forcibly deporting them to concentration camps. He didn't see Chairman Mao's China, Vladimir Lenin's Russia, Pol Pot's Vietnam, Assad's Syria ... mostly unarmed citizens being herded into a slaughter. If Hagel went to school under Common Core, these significant tidbits of history would be washed away by our Revisionist Historian in Chief as insignificant and meaningless. However, they have happened, they're well documented and we're watching it happen again.

No, the main trouble with MANY--not all, not most, MANY--of today's cops is their MILITARY training. They come to a police force as a trained-to-kill soldier, expecting federal government support in a unit that should have NO federal government support. That's is the militarization and nationalization of today's police forces.
The Kroger spokesperson stated that they "... trust them to act responsibly in stores". In other words, Nanny Bloomberg and his minions don't want to take chances because he doesn't trust anybody he can't control.
Hardly docile but definitely a defenseless world populace ...
More like "Please ... buy in!" We the People have this promise to corporations who buy into Obama's load of horse hockey: buy in ... we guarantee to make you sweat.
I'm not sure I'd say "un-American", but I would say foolhardy, not even remotely correct and without a constitutional leg to stand on. The pricetag for losing this one--which I'm sure they will--should come from their salaries, not state coffers (which are taxpayer monies).

Although our Founding Father's language didn't use the same language--Federal government is Public Enemy No. 1--the Constitution, as well as ALL associated writings, emphasize that as their belief, that in the wrong hands, it becomes and enemy to everybody. The REAL problem is apathy in the voters paralleled by the lack of knowledge and the lack of desire to study the issues and vote for candidates who will abide the Constitution.
It's more than merely the Establishment clause that atheists and humanists rely on; they use a line from one of Jefferson's writings regarding separation of state, misquoted AND taken out of context, to reinforce their position that there is allegedly no collusion. Obama talked about Freedom to worship ... quite a different beast: worship as you see fit, but don't practice it in the public square. Atheists preach "Freedom from Religion". In fact, the Founding Fathers were adamant AND openly stated that those who occupied leadership positions in government at ALL levels should be Christians, believers in God and His Son. Why? Because the Christian religion teaches humility, meekness, living by the commandments, being honorable and just men and women, with wrong and right being facts and not merely large gray areas. It's time to make the atheists eat their vomitous words, without catsup or any other condiments to make it back down whence it came easier.
It's not JUST the NRA ... GOA, SFA, CCRKBA are three other national organizations. Then there are the countless state-level organizations ...
