Okay, fess up, who kicked over David’s rock?
Take away firearms or heavily restrict them via gun control and the militia is de-fanged, becoming nothing more than a group of men bound together with weapons consisting of stones, sticks, and verbal jabs.The highest number to which, according to the best computation, a standing army can be carried in any country, does not exceed one hundredth part of the whole number of souls; or one twenty-fifth part of the number able to bear arms. This proportion would not yield, in the United States, an army of more than twenty-five or thirty thousand men. To these would be opposed a militia amounting to near half a million of citizens with arms in their hands, officered by men chosen from among themselves, fighting for their common liberties, and united and conducted by governments possessing their affections and confidence. It may well be doubted, whether a militia thus circumstanced could ever be conquered by such a proportion of regular troops. Those who are best acquainted with the last successful resistance of this country.
Yep...WE the people are indeed the Militia!When I taught History, I would spend a month on the Constitution. When covering the BOR and the 2nd Amendment, I would do a prompt and response with my classes... I'd say, "Who are the Militia?" The class wold respond, in unison, "WE are the Militia!" They liked it, .... I did too...
No, he has every right to free speech. He just has to use the technology they had when the constitution was written. Hopefully he'll write his next BS tweet on parchment paper with a quill pen and post it in the town square.So if I understand his logic correctly then then you can only have free speech if your are a reporter and belong to a Church. Did I get this right?
