30. The Devil is in the details

 

1) Please define "gun rights" in your own words.


The term "gun rights" is a misnomer and should be restated as "arms rights". By definition and "arm" is a weapon that can be transported and operated by an individual. By definition a "weapon" is any tool that can cause physical or psychological harm to living beings.

I maintain that it is my unalienable right to keep and bear any weapon that I can transport and operate without assistance from others. The list of weapons available to me include slings, bows & arrows, guns, hammers, axes, knives, clubs and many, many more

2) Please explain how you interpret the 2nd amendment to grant "gun rights."


The 2nd amendment "grants" nothing. It is a specific, enumerated restriction on the government.

The 2nd amendment specifically recognizes my unalienable right to "keep and bear arms" and guarantees that unalienable right "shall not be infringed" by the government.

3) Please give an example of how a regulation has personally infringed your "gun rights."

Luby's Cafeteria Killeen, Texas Oct. 16, 1991. 23 murdered 20 wounded. I passed on the Luby's Lu Ann plate that day and opted for a chicken fried steak at the Hallmark Restaurant, about a mile away. Coming out of the restaurant we heard the sirens.

At that time, carrying our guns on our person was illegal so our guns were legally left in our cars. George Hennard, the murderer, did not give a crap about the law and shot 43 of my friends and neighbors who were rendered defenseless by the law.

Never Again!
