The Bears are Armed Enuf! So, are you a sheep, or what?

The above news item from Yahoo! News annoyed me, so I felt obliged to comment.  I guess the whole country’s forgotten their high school Civics classes (assuming they still teach Civics in high school), the 2nd Amendment to the U. S. Constitution is about the maintaining of a militia system rather than the standing army (which we have today), and not, in fact, about the right to bear arms. The section regarding the bearing of arms is related only to the needs of a militia system. In a militia system, the participants must supply their own weapons and ammunition, uniforms, etc. Today the DOD supplies weapons, ammunition, uniforms, and all other required goods and services to ALL soldiers, they need not supply their own. Meaning because the militia system no longer exists, and therefore the right to bear arms no longer exists! Everybody should actually read the 2nd Amendment sometime, rather than take someone else’s opinion on the subject, think for yourself! I realize the existing Supreme Court is afraid of the gun lobby when it comes to making correct rulings regarding gun control, everybody needs to retire someday.   This is my, and many other legal scholars’, interpretation of the 2nd amendment.

Before you decide that you disagree with me, read the wording contained in the actual text of the amendment, think about those words, and then decide what you believe.  At least then, you’ll be thinking for yourself, and not being a sheep, and following whatever the special interests groups tell you is the truth.  Always remember, a well-read populace is dangerous populace, politicians (and their puppeteers) prefer us as sheep…unthinking sheep, who do and think what they’re told.  Do you want to be a sheep, or what?  Just my thought for Independence Day.

      Of course its “bear”. Sorry. I guess you’re perfect. A spelling error is your best argument. Oh well. Have you read the 2nd amendment, or not?
