1. "The 2nd amendment protects a legitimate individual right" - Barack Obama

can we stop the militia nonsense?

9. But it is an individual right independent of the militia according to the President

and the party platform.

18. LOL

 

What cherrypicking the Delicate Flowers do!

Obama used the word "legitimate", which you dropped from your post. Just like how Delicate Flowers drop "well-regulated" whenever they whine about the 2nd Amendment.

19. Go read my original post again - see the 6th word in the title?

what difference does it make? He is saying an individual right to own guns is a legitimate right.

Of why Tom Tomorrow invented the phrase. Thanks for showing his work wasn't in vain.

33. Finally, an attribution!

Although surely you wouldn't have objected to a continued portrayal of yourself as the insanely clever devil who coined that phrase, would you?

And FYI, I probably agree with you on 95% of the Second Amendment/gun issues. I just think you are one piss-poor spokesman for the cause.

34. I never claimed authorship

 

I always acknowledged it came from Tom Tomorrow whenever there was whinging from the Delicates about it.

> I just think you are one piss-poor spokesman for the cause.

Never claimed to be a spokesman. Just expressing my opinion on things, like the cowardly paranoia that grips Delicate Flowers.

24. Delicate Flower Spinning!

 

Nice try at spin!

Here is the quote: ""The 2nd amendment protects a legitimate individual right"

That in no way shape or form is equivalent to "an individual right to own guns is a legitimate right." Not in the SLIGHTEST.

He is stating that the 2nd amendment protects a (legal) individual right. If you doubt that, there are plenty of online dictionaries to look up what the word "legitimate" means.

Now, what makes something legal or not? The laws that govern it - as in GUN CONTROL (BOO!) laws.

26. We all know the 2A allows regulation - even Scalia agrees with you

I support regulation. I support all of the President's EOs plus universal background checks and limits on high cap mag.

The president is saying you don't have to be in a militia to own guns.

So what is your point exactly?

My point is that I caught your spin - your reinterpretation of what the President said. Just like when you spin "you're safer now than ever before" into "guns make you safer"

28. I interpreted to mean you didn't need to be part of militia

in order to keep and bear arms.

Do you think the president thinks otherwise?

Certainly not with full-combat gear...

12. All phallic symbolism aside...

it reminds me of some more recent variant of the anti-tank rifles produced during WWII. Possibly the Lahti L-39, a 20 mm anti-tank rifle produced by Finland.




EDIT: Yeah...looking at the two again, I suspect it is some version of the Finnish L-39. I wonder where he gets ammo for that thing?

I bet one guy doesn't even have a high school diploma, much less have knowledge of the constitution.......

No constitution amendment is absolute, like the other guy probably thinks it is. That is why there are college courses and degrees for it.

I'm seriously wondering if either of them is anywhere close to being a Constitutional expert.
