Letter From The Special Forces Community Concerning The Second Amendment
#1
An outstanding letter. I hope this is verified as truth in it's source.

“The purpose of the Second Amendment is to secure our ability to oppose enemies foreign and domestic, a guarantee against disorder and tyranny. Consider the words of Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story”: ‘The importance of this article will scarcely be doubted by any persons, who have duly reflected upon the subject. The militia is the natural defense of a free country against sudden foreign invasions, domestic insurrections, and domestic usurpations of power by rulers. It is against sound policy for a free people to keep up large military establishments and standing armies in time of peace, both from the enormous expenses, with which they are attended, and the facile means, which they afford to ambitious and unprincipled rulers, to subvert the government, or trample upon the rights of the people. The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.’

The Second Amendment has been ruled to specifically extend to firearms “in common use” by the military by the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in U.S. v Miller (1939). In Printz v U.S. (1997) Justice Thomas wrote: “In Miller we determined that the Second Amendment did not guarantee a citizen’s right to possess a sawed-off shot gun because that weapon had not been shown to be “ordinary military equipment” that could “could contribute to the common defense”.

A citizen’s right to keep and bear arms for personal defense unconnected with service in a militia has been reaffirmed in the U.S. Supreme Court decision (District of Columbia, et al. v Heller, 2008). The Court Justice Scalia wrote in the majority opinion: “The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.“. Justice Scalia went on to define a militia as “… comprised all males physically capable of acting in concert for the common defense ….”

Well said.

An excellent letter and one that hopefully reaches far and wide. Thanks for sharing.

And we are going to take this to the politicians that dont know what "shall not be infringed" means ?? Fat chance of that one... The have no idea what the Constitution means, nor do they care.. it is what THEY want and to hell with anyone that disagrees with them.

The first thing we have to teach these fools is that an OATH is something you say that you will abide by... well, we all know what that means... Poop in one hand, and wish in the other and see which one fills up first...

Only after they realize that they took the OATH freely can we start to get them to understand bigger words.. like RESPONSIBILITY, and FREEDOM and ILLEGAL........

US v Miller ruled that the 2nd Amendment applies to weapons suitable for military purposes. They also ruled that a sawed off shotgun was not appropriate for military service. This whole case basically says the "assault weapons" they want to ban so bad are actually protected from being banned.
