    How the NRA Rewrote the Second Amendment

    I guess Michael Waldman never read any of the founding father's material, particularly George Mason (in my sig).
    No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. Thomas Jefferson (1776)

    If you go into a store, with a gun, and rob it, you have forfeited your right to not get shot - Joe Deters, Hamilton County (Cincinnati) Prosecutor

    I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few politicians. - George Mason (father of the Bill of Rights and The Virginia Declaration of Rights)

    Interesting seems like he doesn't know how to apply the word never. Dred Scott decision in denying blacks citizenry acknowledged that it would mean they would have the right to carry firearms.

    He does get it that common law right to own arms exists, then ignores it by saying legislation can make that right somehow non existent.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
