    Is it constitutional?

    Second Amendment- 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.

    Right is defined as a moral or legal entitlement to have or obtain something or to act in a certain way.


    The big ticket question, is it constitutional to enforce and require the use of the second amendment?

    Hey Coinblazer..... Just as a thought. Do you recall the crud’s that set off bombs at the Boston marathon? Within scant 24 hours that entire city was a federal police state..... For good reason mind you. There were dangerous thugs that had to be neutralized... However, the efficiency that was demonstrated by the governments ability to turn that city into a police state was mind boggling. It lends someone to wonder..... What if the wrong man was at the top????..... Anyway, our founding fathers knew what they were doing. It is a mindset that must be addressed. An armed public will not keep us free from a tyrant these days. But believe me that I would trust an armed good man any day to protect my best interests.

    You may be right. An armed public will not keep us free in an all out civil war, but It would be enough to show the government we aren't going down without a fight.

    Good luck to us if the government does take over. It has so much more firepower than the collective citizenry that there is no chance that we could regain our rights by shooting it out with them.

    The way to avoid such problems is to elect public officials who respect the rule of law and the proper role of government. Citizens should think twice before they support FBI and Justice Department officials who wanted to engineer a coup against a duly elected president.

    I don't think so. No one should be FORCED to buy a gun. For one thing some people are incapable of handling one. It takes training and judgement to be a gun owner. Forcing a gun on people who don’t want one would be a major mistake.

    Agreed. If you were raised in the country like I was then you probably remember the kids come to school with their gun racks hanging in their back windows so they could hunt after school. Heck, as a Cub Scout I found I was in trouble if I didn’t have my pocket knife on me in school. No, you absolutely cannot force a person to be armed if they choose not to. But we can certainly do something to change people’s viewpoint of weapons.
