Response to Fortinbras Armstrong (Reply #39)

40. I notice you didn't answer my question:

 

Do you believe that women who carry concealed weapons are carrying them as "penis substitutes"?

You seem to be saying that the Second Amendment allows killing people. Is that what you really mean?

The second amendment doesn't allow killing people, it is about keeping arms in the hands of the people so that they can kill those who would threaten the security of frees states. And the only animal on the planet that can do that is people.

The second amendment is about killing people.

That has got to be the biggest lump of shit that I've come across since a conservative told me that Obama was simultaneously a marxist, a fascist and an anarchist. Saddam Hussain was generally disliked by most of his people, yet gun ownership was high. Why did he seem not to care that his people were armed? Because he had an army and an air force to back him up. A few yahoos in the sticks aren't going to stop the US Army for more than 2 minutes should they decide to take control of the nation.

Whether you think the objective of the second amendment is feasible or not is irrelevant. It is still what the founders intended, and it is still the US Constitution and thus the law of the land.

But as far as feasibility goes, I'll just point out that the United States has lost or quit every military engagement it has engaged in for the last 65 years, despite massive technological superiority.
