Actually It wasnt JUST written because America had no army, that was one purpose, it was also to have a Militia available in case it was needed in event of a grave emergency. While the US has never had to call on the unorganized militia, in recent times, a country we all know and love has. In WWII after Dunkirk, under threat of invasion the UK called up ordinary citizens to form a "Home Guard" and at the time, the biggest problem for this group was a lack of weapons, most had nothing more than pitchforks and broomsticks. At the time, the army had absorbed the entire output of the weapons factories to re-equip an army that had lost everything in Europe. While not invaded, it often still fell to Home Guard to hunt down German Fighter pilots and capture them, who were often better equipped than they were.
Given this, its certainly not impossible that the US may need to call on the civillian militia.
As for the second part of your claim, *I* am not endangering lives, neither are any law abiding gun owners, your statement is nothing more than pure fantasy and fear mongering, I cant even give credit to it for attempting to paint me as an "evil" gun owner its so much nonsense.
Did I make that statement? He made the claim they wouldnt though.
Highly unlikely that was me, I dont believe in the Bible, it has some nice stories in it with interesting lessons, but its no different than any other morality story.
Are you saying that the Bible, something that has no force of law, and certainly not drawn up by the leaders of any country is equivelant to the founding documents of the country, which is backed by the executive and judicial branches at the very least? Apples to oranges bud.
You missed his point. He's saying that while you cling to say, "It's part of this paper that we can have guns", it is just as silly as those who say, " It says in the bible to hate gays.".
As times changes, those principles and values we held will change, and things will become necessary and redundant. We must be willing to adapt. To hold onto a document that was written in a time when EVERYONE had access to the same technology and type of weapons, and when there was very little in terms of population to worry about, is a bit like holding on to versus of the bible and saying they still apply.
While the constitution of america is a great thing.... times change, and so must we. We can not let a document hold us back from evolving as a nation.
No one knows what the original founding fathers would have said about baring arms if they knew how guns would have ended up, and how they would have been used in the future. Back then, it took you a good 3 to 5 minutes to fire 2 bullets. Now it takes you maybe 3 seconds to fire 20. Again, if you want to talk about apples and oranges, lets talk about the time period they wrote the line for and the technology around then, and what has changed drastically as we have progressed. And of course, the difference in life from then and now.... We don't have to worry about Indians or really invading armys. And our government is pretty well established to where I don't think our society will have to fear it.... for if we ever do have to fear our government, they will walk right over us with all their superior technology compared to what you have stored at home.
