    Without the Second you would have no rights! If you aren't an NRA member, join! The NRA is the only watchdog we have. Call your Senators and Representitives and let them know how you feel. Most of all, VOTE the Second! Personally, I will NEVER vote for anyone that doesn't support our Second Amendment rights.

    Somehow when the founding fathers gathered to pen the words of the second amendment, I doubt any of them had an inkling as to what weapons of the future would bring. In their days they had flintlock rifles and revolvers. They couldn't have possibly imagined an AK57, M-16, etc. I think if they had, the amendment would have been worded slightly different. With what they had to work with in the late 1700's, they did an outstanding job.

    I don't agree. They wanted a armed militia to protect them and to have the best weapons they could. At the time that was a flint lock, At this time the options have opened up but the meaning in the amendment is still the same. I seriously doubt they would want to live now and only allow bolt action or single shot rifles when the people the amendment was aimed towards are carrying fully automatic weapons. The armed militia then did own cannons that were fully capable of using grape shot, the machine gun of the area. It is harder to own a cannon now than it was then.

    Besides, 300 rounds into a building are still not as good as a single round into the heart!

    I found a few quotes, these should explain why it is important for the arms we bear to be modern. IMHO, it's not your right as an american to bear arms, it's your responsibility.

    "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." -- Jefferson's "Commonplace Book," 1774-1776, quoting from On Crimes and Punishment, by criminologist Cesare Beccaria, 1764
    -- Thomas Jefferson

    The Constitution preserves "the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation. . . (where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." -- The Federalist, No. 46
    - James Madison

    "[A]rms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. . . Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them." -- Thoughts On Defensive War, 1775
    - Thomas Paine

    "What, sir, is the use of militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty. . . Whenever Government means to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise a standing army upon its ruins." -- Debate, U.S. House of Representatives, August 17, 1789
    - Elbridge Gerry

    "No free government was ever founded or ever preserved its liberty, without uniting the characters of the citizen and soldier in those destined for the defense of the state.... Such are a well regulated militia, composed of the freeholders, citizen and husbandman, who take up arms to preserve their property, as individuals, and their rights as freemen."
    - State Gazette (Charleston), September 8, 1788
