"If you're trying to change minds and influence people it's probably not a good idea to say that virtually all elected Democrats are liars, but what the hell."
"If the number of Islamic terror attacks continues at the current rate, candlelight vigils will soon be the number-one cause of global warming. "
Intelligence, it's so refreshing and simple; and, something perverted liberal minds will never master.
Actually, NO:When you read, "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,"you should put it into more modern sentence structure...LEAVING THE WORDS EXACTLY AS THE ARE:The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, a well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.THEN, to make it a bit more READABLE, let me add a few prepositions:"The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, BECAUSE a well regulated militia IS necessary to the security of a free state."Historical research shows "militia" meant and *still* means EACH AND EVERY AMERICAN (capable of fighting).SEE?!? THAT wasn't so difficult.
Penn is interpreting the 2nd Amendment in a completely different way. His point is the Founders recognized the US would need a well-armed militia to repel foreign invasion in order to function as a secure country. Therefore, citizens must never be restricted from having weapons in order to defend themselves from that militia, in case it turned on the people.
