The way the constitution is written, we the people already have a right to keep and bear arms. All the constitution says is that this natural right will not be "infringed" by the government. At least this it how I always understood the 2nd amendment.

Why do I want to keep a gun? By asking the question, you assume I need a reason that satisfies you. Because I want to is sufficient a reason as any. I don't need another. On the other hand, why do you think I shouldn't? What do you have against the law?

Are you an Obama voter, by any chance? It would explain a lot.

c] The question is really for the individual isn't it.

d] But the Christian could ask; Does God protect me or do I need a weapon to keep me alive as long as God wants me to live?

a] Why? People keep a gun for security and self-defense purposes. You know, in case of an intruder into ones home who is brandishing a deadly weapon with the intent of potentially harming (killing) a member of ones family.

b] That's your choice. And OF COURSE we don't have to defend ourselves everyday! But it only takes that ONE time ...

c] Agreed.

d] God certainly protects us. However, I would NOT presume upon God to ward off all malicious and violent threats against family. That seems to be the responsibility of the man in the house.

And here's a question for you: Should Christian police officers refuse to carry deadly force, i.e., guns? Or should they, too, depend upon God's protection in keeping them alive for as long as He wants them to live?

Non-hunting guns in the home is a matter for prayerful consideration. But they ARE our Constitutional right!

How I wish this were true, Mike!
But in reality, the Supremes MAKE laws not formerly found in the Constitution. Roe v. Wade being the prime example in our lifetime.

A matter of interpretation, true. But only because many have the false notion that the Supreme Court has the legal right to interpret the Constitution. They only have authority to interpret laws as to whether they abide Constitutionally. The Court is equal, not superior to, the legislative and the executive branches in that all three are under Constitutional limitations. The only legal way the Con. can be changed, as you know, is by amendment. I often wonder why the other branches don't hold the Court accountable. Plenty of grounds to remove judges behaving badly.

There's a push for a new Constitutional Convention (Con-Con), I believe that 32 states have signed on and only 2 are needed. A few states rescinded there votes, but I don't know offhand if the Constitution itself acknowlegdes rescinded votes.

The point is this: if today's contra-Christian mood carries a Con-Con, it will carry out several amendments with it, and be certain that the first and second will be the first two to go.

For those who are afraid of guns or believe that they are unbiblical, remember that keeping and bearing arms doesn't require you to be a warmonger or invader. The provision is designed for the people's protection against criminal individuals, groups, and governments. I don't PERSONALLY know a a gun owner who had to shoot anyone (I know OF a few), but I do know (at least here in Baltimore) that crooks don't break into houses where it's known that the inhabitants not only have weapons, but know how to use them.

The fact that FEMA and the US Military disarmed law-abiding citizens during Katrina was telling. They disarmed people who were not even in the flooded areas! A tyrannical gov't will always disarm the public and install a police state, and that's what's happening here folks. Pray about it, then do something about it ... while you still can...

The question is kind of silly. Whether you agree or not is irrelevant. Amendment 2 is the guarantee, regardless of what Obama or any other "official" wants, that you may indeed keep and bear arms. There is no law that says only government types and criminals are allowed this. There is no authority to deny the 2nd Amendment right. Any law that seeks to do so is unconstitutional, and therefore illegal.
I notice that New York does not even allow people to own a stun gun or a tazer gun, even in their own home for protection. I think slingshots are illegal in NY also and that's no joke. Baseball bats and knives are still legal.

If those three homos in Obama's church had guns, maybe the Obama CIA thugs would not have been able to execute them with THEIR guns. Obama thinks the only people who should have guns are the government thugs when they come to steal your kids, drag you away to a FEMA camp, or hold you at bay while they rape your wife and childre

Man has the right from God alone, not from some man-made document, to make, keep, and use weapons for hunting purposes and defense against animal attacks. No license or registration required by anyone. Period!

As for guns in particular I personally do not care for them. I prefer the traditional bow myself. I do hope to get into spears and knives in the future.

Not any more!!
Since that nice Liberal Mr. Obama got his foot in the door of the White House. Then America is going to change into a totally peaceful nation, with zero discrimination with everybody getting along. Every person will be important to the party line and treated equally and fairly in all things. Black, white, male, female hetro or homosexual will be completely free and accepted. All religions will be allowed to practice whatever they believe. Except those nasty old Christians who are against peace and happiness.

So nobody needs a gun anymore.
