    Here is a very good read. I know some will not agree, but it cites words of our founding fathers.


    Notice the words of Tenche Coxe.

    Thanks for posting that Rick. It is a good read. Now we can see how why our 'leadership' ignores the Constitution, and rules by Executive orders, edicts and decrees. Charlie

    there are approximately 7 people on the planet who agree with your assessment of this material.

    you are nuts. right wing nuts. people by the millions who own guns, and love to shoot them, think your are jokes.

    please review the factual bases and stop being such fools.

    Don't you just love the fools that think they know the intent better than the people who founded this country???

    All I did was post their words, expessed nothing of my own. As I said in my first post, these are the words of the founding fathers, I know there are some who do not agree.

    The idea that the Constitution is a living document means it is irrevelant.

    You stupid lefties have to understand you cannot cherry pick only the things you want to use in it and deny the rights of others you don't like.

    If a law written 200 years ago says you are entitled to a trial by a jury of your peers, it is just as true today as it was then, it really makes your arguement lame when you say one amendment is no longer applicable because the passage of time and another is not.

    I'll take a stand in line as number 9!!

    I feel sorry for ole wayno, the Truth is presented to him and it scares him to pieces.

    Leftist are so predicable! They take their government education(indoctrination) so seriously.

    He doesn't realize that the last two generations have been NOT TAUGHT the truth about our Founders and the Documents that make this Country what it is.

    Its referred to as "the dumbing down of America"

    SO wayno, PROVE the material wrong if you can.

    Wayneo, Magpul is backordered ONE MILLION MAGAZINES. Brownells sold THREE YEARS WORTH OF MAGAZINES. Every AR15 has disappeared from dealers, and manufacturers are backordered several months. Dealer shelves have been stripped clean of 8mm, 45 ACP, .223, 7.62x39 and .308.

    Your "7 people" assertion is nothing short of delusional incompetent rambling.

    Oh, and if you're counting here only... 15.

    Include me also Wayno! You want people to respect your 1st amendment rights on what say and believe. So why do you thinking limiting our 2nd amendment rights are any different? The constitution is for all its citizens even for the millions of us who own guns! : )

    I think that makes me #17. How can anyone disagree, they said what they said!
    You think they were old fashioned and out of touch with today? It's taken over 200 years for their fears to come to fruition, but here they are today! Looks like they were pretty foresighted after all.
