"The District of Columbia, where government restrictions prompted the landmark Heller decision in which the U.S. Supreme Court found individuals have a right to be armed, still doesn't understand the Second Amendment, according to a new lawsuit."

"The Second Amendment Foundation told WND its new lawsuit on behalf of three D.C. residents and a man from New Hampshire seeks to compel the city to issue carry permits to law-abiding citizens."

"The U.S. District Court lawsuit was filed on behalf of Tom Palmer, George Lyon and Amy McVey of the district as well as Edward Raymond of New Hampshire."

"I am the Founder of the Second Amendment March, a nonprofit organization dedicated to planning and organizing Second Amendment Marches in every state capitol as well as smaller cities all across the country between now and April 19th, 2010. On that day, Second Amendment supporters from all across the country will meet on the National Mall in Washington DC to celebrate the mainstream freedom we have in the right to keep and bear arms. ..."

"Part of my job as Founder is to extend invitations for people to speak at these events. Recently, I invited a famous Second Amendment activist. I asked him to spend five minutes on stage. He said he would be very happy and honored to attend ... but only if we paid him $40,000." ..." ...

Sorry, Mandatory Gun Registration Is Constitutional

"Mandatory gun regulation has long been the bęte noire of Second Amendment advocates, who worry that it's the final step before firearm confiscation."

"The surprise is that, even after last year's landmark Supreme Court ruling on gun rights, mandatory registration could be constitutional. It may not be the wisest public policy. It may not be practical. But after the D.C. v. Heller decision, it also may not violate the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution."

"That question is at the heart of a second lawsuit underway against the city of Washington, D.C. It also arose last week when the U.S. Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago said that the Second Amendment poses no barrier to mandatory regulation ..." ...

"The opinion of the Los Angeles Times is that Americans are volatile and dangerous. As an American, my opinion is that anti-liberty-nuts are defamatory and ignorant, abusing their first amendment rights."

"The Friday, August 21, 2009 edition of the Los Angeles Times has the editorial Gunning for trouble. The mistaken idea (ignorance) is that the subject of the armed citizen is even open to debate. Newspapers depend entirely on an amendment to the constitution which is far from absolute, and apply (abuse) their right to attack another’s right which is absolute. The First Amendment has reasonable restrictions ... I can remember media screaming bloody murder when their 1A rights were judged, and it’s not even absolute!" ...

"For many people who have never bought one before, buying a gun can be a daunting prospect. What laws do I need to know about? What do I need to bring? How do I go about picking one out? Can I buy one for my wife? How do I get it registered? All are common questions. In this article, I'll try to cover the basics."

"In Ohio, buying a gun is a pretty straight forward process, but there are two different sets of procedures. You do not need any kind of permit to buy a gun (but you do need one if you want to carry it concealed or in a motor vehicle)." ...

"The First Amendment ethos guarantees citizens the right to participate in their democracy without fear of physical retribution. If there is any one foundational right in America, this is it - it is the right that so many of us, fleeing from oppressive societies/regimes, originally came to this country specifically seeking. But as my new syndicated newspaper column shows, that First Amendment right is now being threatened by, of all things, the Second Amendment."

"The rise of gun-toting protesters and congressional and presidential town hall meetings has put citizens' right to bear arms in direct conflict with citizens right to attend public political meetings without fear of physical retribution ..." ...

Submitter's Note: Like your hoplophobia, I have an irrational fear of people wearing Birkenstocks, so if you get to ban guns, I get to ban hippies, okay?

"Outside the convention center in Phoenix where President Obama was discussing healthcare reform earlier this week, about a dozen protesters were openly displaying their guns -- including one man with an AR-15 rifle slung over his shoulder. Police monitoring the situation reported that no threats, physical or verbal, were made by or toward the armed demonstrators."

"Big surprise. Who's going to argue about the merits of the public insurance option with a wing-nut carrying the semiautomatic, civilian version of the M-16 military assault weapon?" ...

"While the law is couched in terms that encourage the state's hunters to rack up on supplies like deer stands and duck decoys, don't be naive.

"Many people were startled to see a man bring an AR-15 assault rifle to the vicinity of a presidential town hall on healthcare in Phoenix on Monday. His intent, he told reporters, was to show his willingness to 'forcefully resist' an overreaching government."

"He broke no laws, police say, and he was not a threat to the president. But it turns out there's an actual connection between gun rights and healthcare reform, at least according to one gun lobby."

"Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt says that a Democrat-sponsored government-run healthcare system with a centralized patient record database could keep guns out of the hands of 'gazillions' of lawful Americans." ...

"From New Hampshire to Arizona, Americans openly carrying firearms have been seen outside presidential appearances. The most remarkable thing about this is that some find this behavior to be remarkable."

"American citizens are the sovereigns in our system of government. Indeed, We the People created the government which, at least in theory, only does what we tell it to do in the Constitution. Sovereigns are expected to be armed." ...

"The armed attendees made it clear that they were exercising their right to keep and bear arms. Zero tolerance of firearms has become so extreme that even a picture of a gun can get a student kicked out of school. The presence of armed citizens helps correct the notion that guns are inherently dangerous." ...

"Speaking of guns, a man appeared at a recent town hall in Phoenix with an assault rifle on his shoulder."

"It probably wasn't the savviest move, given the political climate. It's also intimidating, in bad taste and completely irrelevant to the health care debate. But it was completely legal, since Arizona has an open carry law."

"Of course, those who think the Second Amendment is just a suggestion and not a constitutional right were appalled at this development." ...

At events in both New Hampshire and Arizona, anti-Obama protesters gathered outside the venues openly carrying loaded weapons, including assault rifles. For some, this was disturbing. For others, it was justified as a very normal instance of citizens exercising their constitutional right to bear arms ..."

... "But perhaps the worst of what passes for debate over the issue of health care is the license it seems to have provided for disgruntled elements of the population. NRA devotees arrive at presidential visits sporting rifles and hand guns just because they can. Not present to participate in discussion their goal is apparently to make some kind of statement about their 'right-to-carry' ... Freedom for the un-armed majority and our leaders shouldn't be compromised by fear of those who sport weapons in public places." ...

"Every so often, we get a picture - with crystal clarity -- of the kind of country the radical 'gun rights' crowd wants America to be. It allows us to understand just how much is at stake in the gun control debate."

"It apparently is not enough for opponents of the President's health care proposals to bring their signs and their voices to town hall meetings and Presidential speeches. Now they are bringing their guns."

"... an Arizona constituent of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords dropping a handgun while attending a 'meet and greet' ... a New Hampshire man standing outside the venue for a Presidential appearance on health care reform with a pistol openly strapped to his thigh." ...

Submitter's Note: Yes, and such a horrible picture it is. People peacefully protesting, exercising their rights, no one getting shot, just law-abiding citizens who are obeying the law. How ever could we let this happen?!? Surely dogs and cats, living together will be next!

Gun control advocates counter that the Constitution doesn't give anyone the inalienable right to wield automatic weapons that can kill scores of people in seconds."

"America appropriately encourages lively debate over the issues that affect us. True debate, however, requires that we respect each other's opinions and that we not intimidate or threaten our opponents into silence. Doing so debases our traditions and weakens our ability to overcome the challenges that we should all face together."
