Americans misunderstand point
of the Second Amendment [Video]

Daily Caller, by Ginni Thomas

Original Article

Posted By:JoElla Bee, 1/14/2013 8:23:43 PM

Author and economist Walter Williams told The Daily Caller that the purpose of the Second Amendment is to protect Americans from their own government — not simply to ensure hunting rights. Williams, a syndicated columnist and the John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University, suggested that common misconceptions about the Second Amendment undermine the gun control debate. “[The Founding Fathers´] stated reason was to allow the American people to protect themselves from the United States Congress — that is, government.

AND Obama doesn´t have the authority to over-ride the Constitution on his personal whim. He figuratively wipes his arse with the Constitution whenever it doesn´t agree with his "domination" agenda.

This anti-American usurper is out of control! I´m calling on Congress to cut him off! Do it NOW!

And if Professor Williams is correct as I believe he is, the 2nd amendment intent was to ensure that private citizens would have access to any and all weapons that would be needed to defend their liberty from a tyrannical government. that would include any type of weapon that could be used within the borders of the USA to suppress and subjugate. That train has already left the station but the right to all weapons currently legal should not be infringed upon.

One Two punch..NO to Obama on gun control, followed by NO on raising the debt limit.
It is time for Obama to feel the back of our hands on his face.
Valerie Jarett said he would be ready to "RULE" from day one of his term.
We the People will not be ruled.
Cut up Obama´s credit card..he is maxxed out.

I´m glad to hear Walter Williams say this about the 2nd Amendment. I scream at my tv a lot when Republicans blither on about hunting but no one hears me but my dog.

This is the absolute truth. If you have inalienable rights granted to you from your creator then you have the inalienable right to protect those freedoms. The founders knew tyranny.

The response is to start pushing for the end of the GCA 1934, 1968 and FOPA 1986 as well as elimination of ATF. The government already gave up their power to tax which was (supposedly, according to the court) the only way they could mess with our purchasing/possessing selective fire weapons, grenades, artillery, etc - so file in the courts to get all of our 2nd amendment right back and remove gov thug harassment using our tax dollars. Check out the 7th and 10th circuit decisions back in the early 90s if you didn´t know that.

...I would pray NEVER to have to use a gun on an american soldier, but there are factions within our government, I wouldn´t feel too sure about...

...and though we may never have a "Red Dawn" encounter, doesn´t hurt to stay sharp...

The Second Amendment was never about hunting varmints of the four legged kind. It is there so that citizens may protect themselves from a corrupt, tyrannical and oppressive government. Now it appears that such a government may be coalescing in Washington, D.C.

During the Civil War many of the wealthy sponsored and trained cannon crews, with privately owned cannon.

I wish we still did. I´d feel safer, frankly, if we had privately held, as much firepower as the Feds.

And by the way, Mr. Speaker, The Second Amendment is not for killing ducks .... It is for hunting politicians like (in) Grozney and in 1776, when they take your independence away".

Yes, I have been saying this all along every time I hear stupid lefties try to bring up the hunting thing. This is escatly why EVERY single gun control law on the books is illegal and unconstitutional. What part of "...will not be infringed" do they not understand?? Repeal every single gun control law on the books. The Constitution is the overriding law of the land.

MONROE, La. — In a matter of days, Republican Vance McAllister has gone from being the unlikely congressman — a special election winner who trounced his party´s establishment candidate — to the "kissing congressman," a faith-and-family politician caught on video embracing an aide married to one of his friends. Amid some calls for his resignation, he has said he will respect the verdict of his constituents this fall. Residents interviewed here by The Associated Press expressed disappointment, but not surprise.

HUNTSVILLE, Texas — A serial killer was put to death Thursday in Texas after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected his lawyers’ demand that the state release information about where it gets its lethal injection drug. Tommy Lynn Sells, 49, was the first inmate to be injected with a dose of newly replenished pentobarbital that Texas prison officials obtained to replace an expired supply of the powerful sedative. Sells declined to give a statement. As the drug began flowing into his arms inside the death chamber in Huntsville, Sells took a few breaths, his eyes closed and he began to snore.

PITTSBURGH – A 5-year-old bows her head at lunch to say Grace before she eats may be considered cute and heartwarming by some. That was not the case for a student in Florida. The young girl was told by a school lunchroom supervisor that her actions were wrong. The girl’s father, Marcos Perez, is outraged to the point where he is considering homeschooling his child. Today, the Liberty Institute sent a letter to the school administrators demanding they stop allowing religious discrimination, which is in violation of not only state, but federal law. The school denies the incident.

ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith appeared on Arsenio Hall and gave a stirring commentary regarding L.A. Lakers basketball player Kobe Bryant’s unorthodox comments on why he wouldn’t want to wear a hoodie in honor of slain young black man Trayvon Martin. On the night of February 26, 2012, the 17-year-old Martin was killed by “white Hispanic” George Zimmerman after an altercation; after a jury acquitted Zimmerman in July of 2013 on manslaughter charges, it ignited a public outrage in many communities across the nation.

East Lansing, Mich., The stories of friends and loved ones inspiring players and coaches in the NCAA Tournament often are as memorable as the games themselves. Every so often, they can transcend the madness taking place on the court. The tale of Princess Lacey and her "Superman" from Michigan State is one such story, a lesson in friendship that warms hearts before melting them. Princess Lacey is 8-year-old Lacey Holsworth from St. Johns, Mich. She continues battling neuroblastoma, a nerve cancer, all the while drawing strength and joy from Spartans center Adreian Payne.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
