The 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.

I was asked yesterday late in the comments if I had any positive comments about Barry - Sulla - Obama. My answer follows: "Nope. He's a poor leader, has no administrative ability, no ideas, no understanding of the problems of the common man, and appoints poor people." I can add to that this morning. He violates the Constitution by targeting US Citizens for assassination. That's pretty bad.

If asked that same question about George W. Bush, I would answer that he chose fine justices for the Supreme Court and made up for the mistakes of his father (Souter) & Gerald Ford (J. P. Stevens). Without John Roberts and Steven Alito, the Second Amendment could have been tossed into the wastebin. But with them, it's been upheld in full. Thank you, W.

Today I travel to Vermont to my annual MG shooting event (with lots of proper BATFE paperwork in hand which approves the trip across state lines). Here's where I'm going ->

It's great fun. !

And I will fully exercise my Second Amendment rights as a free man :)
