A de/motivational-style philosophically humorous web poster series with weapons.
It's not brain science or rocket surgery.
The 2nd Amendment
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.
Do you not understand simple English?
Here's a clue:
ALL of your so-called "arguments against" are either irrational, specious,
not founded or grounded in Reality or real Truth, often childlike,
inevitably self-destructive and hurtful to yourself and others
(both those whom you supposedly care about and those whom you could care less about),
usually sub-intellectual, almost always hyper-emotional, and/or simply wrong and wrong-minded.
If you think (more) "gun laws" would prevent "shooting sprees" (or anything like that),
then please tell me more about this new class of criminals who follow the law.
If you don't think or understand that ANYONE could fairly easily go out and purchase
pretty much any weapon they want on the black market for a decent price
within a couple of hours almost anywhere in the world, then you do not understand
how the world works in which you live, and/or are WAY too naive, and/or are clueless,
and/or are in extreme denial.
Also, it DOES NOT MATTER that the Founding Fathers did not and could not envision
(semi-) automatic weapons, or clips with 30 rounds, or smokeless gunpowder, or
horseless carriages, or microwave ovens, or tanks, or dynamite, or nuclear bombs,
etc., etc., etc., ad infinitum, ad nauseum.
It is the basic, fundamental concept that is important, and what is truly at issue.
And that is as important and relevant today as it was 200 years ago.
People also like to suggest and pretend (like children) that they can interpret the meaning
of the 2nd Amendment in SIMPLE terms and constructs to mean something other than
what it truly suggests.
Similarly, they also like to conveniently "forget" that it is NOT just the 2nd that is apropos,
but also about 200 years of case law and U.S. Supreme Court decisions that bolster, strengthen,
and expand on that original intent, as well.
Thereby, YES!, "the 2nd Amendment" DOES give individuals the right to own and bear arms!
(and NOT JUST black powder lead ball muskets and the like)
LEAVE THE U.S. CONSTITUTION AND *ALL* OF ITS AMENDMENTS ALONE!
Except for the occasional faux pas and hiccup, it and they are doing just fine, and we are more likely
to fuck things up due to the political climate in which we find ourselves today than to do actual good
and make it better.
