Do you know your constitution

 That along with the constitutional right to bear arms, you have the right to own slaves?

 

It took one civil war to wipe out the slavery abomination, will it take a second war between citizens to bring sanity to a situation where no one is safe from gunfire?

Re: Do you know your constitution

Regarding the right to bear arms, a real "civil war" based on that right is pointless since the citizenry is unable to purchase the firepower to match that available to the federal/state government armed forces.  The "civil war" is only to be fought in the courts, the ballots, and the legislatures on whether or not those rights will be upheld, infringed, or eliminated.  It seems the NRA view would be that every additional infringement is a step toward elimination, and thus must be opposed.  Most citizens agree with some limitations and restrictions on gun ownership, yet beyond the typical intentions of game, sport and collection, it remains prudent to recognize the fact that an armed populace represents a serious deterrent for any foreign ground invasion, were it to be contemplated.

Not really. An armed but untrained population would quickly be put down by a trained army with something other than bird guns and hunting rifles. Yes there are some radical people on the left who would like all guns destroyed. However, the majority do not feel that way. We just want better background checks, felons and people with mental problem histories to be banned from having a gun! We don’t need bump stocks and other such weapons nor machine guns in civilian hands.

Where does the Constitution give anyone the right to own slaves? Now there are sex slaves being smuggled across our southern border because of the lack of border security. If you actually care about slavery then you will support border security. The wall being the most secure.

Hey 20, trump himself said about a week ago that the border patrol is doing a terrific job, Arrests are up attempts are down. In essence, he admitted a Wall was not necessary!!!
