    Spread this far and wide

    This article actually goes back to 2001 but - read it and see how well it puts the 2A case - it should be read by all in power and digested for all the logic it contains.... including SCOTUS.

    It will be resurrected soon I think as a JPFO alert .. it IMO needs heavily distributed.

    Come on - 45 minutes and no takers - or even views!!! (Oh OK - sorry 22 views) - but still - let's hear some affirmation that this matters.

    I don't bump threads much but hey - this needs seen, read and spread ....... so do me (and all of us) a favor and get this thread going. The 2A is as ever under threat - get this out to all who just might see logic and sense.

    That is a well thought out argument.

    The second amendment foundation filed a amicus brief to SCOTUS, for those that want to read more on the issue, and get a glance at what SCOTUS is actually reviewing:

    Hopefully logic will prevail... I think the folks on our side are making one heck of a case.

    When something is perfect, it seldom needs comment.

    I feel as though I am a member of the choir on this issue...

    Well worth the read.

    Nice article! Too bad more of our Jewish neighbors don't feel the same way! Most of mine are very liberal and anti-gun. You'd think after what happened only 60-70 years ago to their ancestors/families would make them very pro-second amendment!

    Agreed Husker.
    One would think same toward all minorities be they a minority by ethnicity or religion.
    Examples of why and how abound and are not ancient history either.

    How many times does one have to take a boot to the family jewels before they come to appreciate the value of owning and wearing a cup.

    Read, agree and will forward to others.
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!
