Ok, these are words well thought out and always eloquently spoken. I’m with @trevi here, @Andy54Hawken 2024! Hey @Joe Link, how about a raise for Andy? Just having fun tonight and very appreciative for this fair moderator and idea from another forum member.Thank you...
I do for the most part have a no-nonsense attitude....
However....in the interest of honesty :
I do bend the forum rules at times...sometimes for my benefit...at other times to best fit the situation.
With that said...I am also willing to accept the consequences and blame for my actions.
As for the Constitution ...
It says what it says....if one has questions about the wording...a dictionary will be helpful.
I would suggest that one goes by the actual wording and intent...as opposed to what one wants , wishes or thinks that the wording and intent means.
The 2nd Amendment...
Own what you want....or not as the case may be....Just don't make that choice for others.
Nope.It's still alllll political driven or none of this would be happening now that we're discussing. And in my opinion, if we can't discuss it here, then we aren't aren't any better than the antis and liberals who are pushing thier agendas on our backs trying to take away our FREEDOMS. FREEDOM MEANS EXACTLY THAT...FREEDOM. NOT SENSURE SHIP.
In my opinion if we start sensuring too many things (that's what our faithful so called leaders in WA DC are doing to us now) members here have to say here, well, then we're headed down a slippery slope we won't ever climb back up out of. Then the antis and liberals will win it all, and our hobbies and traditions will be a thing of the past
That's a story I don't EVER want to have to tell my grandkids about how we messed up and let the liberals steal our freedoms and thier freedoms forever because we did the wrong things.
Remember what happened in nazi Germany with the Jewish people when they were silenced. Millions went to the gas chambers because they were silenced so thier words could not be heard. History repeats it's self for those who forget history. Then they are held accountable for it.
We are in a BATTLE for our most sacred freedoms and ALL NEED to be heard I think. Good ideas or bad. We can't pattie cake this stuff or we are doomed period.
