Note the names...
at the beginning of the report.
The Right to Keep and Bear Arms
I especially like the very last line in the report the best. Note the word "carry". Interesting that its not that way.
Mods merge it or move it if its been posted before.

Anybody notice the date?........1982.......
I like this quote from Sen. Orrin Hatch (very PRO-GUN):
If gun laws in fact worked, the sponsors of this type of legislation should have no difficulty drawing upon long lists of examples of crime rates reduced by such legislation. That they cannot do so after a century and a half of trying — that they must sweep under the rug the southern attempts at gun control in the 1870-1910 period, the northeastern attempts in the 1920-1939 period, the attempts at both Federal and State levels in 1965-1976 — establishes the repeated, complete and inevitable failure of gun laws to control serious crime.

Right. This happened just a few years before the ban on all new registrations of automatic weapons.
How can you simultaneously believe that the second amendment protects the people's right to own standard military arms and at the same time support prevention of ownership of the most standard infantry weapon currently used?

Just because I have so much time on my hands tonight I thought this would be an interesting comparison.
The 2nd amendment contains 27 words, in one multi-part sentence.
I put the above referenced document into my word processor and came up with the following statistics discussing the 27 words of the 2nd amendment:
- Words: 14,934
- Sentences: 752
- Lines: 1,208
- Paragraphs: 280
- Pages: 22
I find that simply amazing!

An armed populace are called citizens.
An unarmed populace are called subjects.

Get the full printed version. It is 160 pages long and you will literally freak out reading the contents.
