Here´s Why Someone
Would Need To
Own An ´Assault´ Rifle

Investors Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 12/28/2012 7:51:03 PM

Guns: The left keeps asking why anyone needs an "assault" rifle. Here´s one reason — in 2010, a Texas teen used a rifle similar to the one used in Newtown to defend his younger sister and himself from home invaders. The left quite often exposes its raging elitism through its odious habit of asking why anyone would need the things that it doesn´t like, from guns to big homes to monster trucks. The implication is that if the elitists don´t want whatever it is, then no one should be allowed to have it — except, of course,

Why was the Second Amendment included in the Bill of Rights? Really, let´s be honest here. Is it about Americans protecting themselves from criminals or the violently insane? No, it is not.

What do you find problematic about these weapons #1? That they´re rifles? That they are semi automatic? That they hold more than 6 rounds?

You have been on several of these threads claiming that ´these kinds´ of guns are ´unnecessary´ but I don´t think you´ve ever been specific about what you think makes them unnecessary.

The second amendment is to recognize that citizens have an inherent right (and duty) to take up arms against tyranny. That is why it uses the term "militia" - every able bodied man and willing woman was a member of the militia and not "home guard" or "national guard" or "reservist". It also uses the term "arms" - not "muskets" or "non-military arms" or any other weasel words. Arms - as in those weapons which are capable of defending liberty in the face of tyranny.

Dittos, #2. It´s so that an armed citizenry can pose credible resistance to a tyrannical government (like the one developing before our eyes).

Remember: the Constitution established the federal government and defined what it can do. The Bill of Rights placed tethers on that government by defining what it cannot do. The frequent use of phrases like "Congress shall pass no law" or this or that right "shall not be infringed" or "powers shall be reserved to the States or to the people" illustrate that. These amendments did not establish those rights - they are God-given, as proclaimed in the Declaration - it only restricts the feds from trampling them. Viewed in that light, the Second Amendment makes eminent sense.

Some of our more recent posters have decided they know better what people should have then the people themselves. Its part of the lefty notion that the "people" are a mindless gelatinous blob to be molded into whatever shape is stylish at the moment, rather than sentient individuals.

#1: The author may not be saying that, but I will.

A bolt action rifle, in trained hands and under ideal conditions can chamber a round fairly quickly. As can a lever action.

But under stress and with several ´targets´ coming at you, a semi-automatic rifle will serve much better at defense. Why do you think the military opted for this platform?

The Bushmaster was locked in the trunk in Newtown. The killer used pistols.

The 9mm is the weapon of choice among spree shooters.

The 2nd Amendment is not about hunting.

My AR15 is not an assault rifle. It has never, nor will it ever assault anyone unless it´s needed to defend myself , family , homeland or someone needing defending.
This is a really dumb argument and I won´t ´play´ the game anymore. Filthy politicians can pass whatever they want. I´ll ignore their garbage. I´m not a subject. A note to police, military etc. If the word comes down to confiscate, attack citizens, do the right thing. Follow your oath and stand down.

#2 [Why was the Second Amendment included in the Bill of Rights?]

The Supreme Court, in 1932, defined a "militia" as men of military age supplying their own arms (which is why, contrary to many people´s mistaken belief, the National Guard is not a militia). Also, in an early battle in the Revolutionary War, where the Americans fought bravely, but were no match for the British army, Washington, in a letter to the Continental Congress, lamented the loss and imagined what he could have done with a "well-regulated" militia - i.e., a militia composed of men proficient in the use of arms.

Thus, the Second Amendment was included to ensure that if, say, as happened, a riot breaks out in Los Angeles, and mobs are burning and looting, and the police and/or National Guard are overwhelmed, that there are civilians with their own guns and practice in using them. I recall watching news reports of the riot, with scenes of shop owners on rooftops, shooting at looters threatening their property.

There are also examples of civilian men patrolling during emergencies, high crime, etc. Those, too are militias.

And then there are groups like the Michigan Militia - fat old guys huffing and puffing through the woods on weekends, "training" to "report for duty" when the Commies invade. You and I can laugh, but they are the classic definition of a militia: men, supplying their own arms, with the know-how to use them.

To those who have a problem with that, the solution is simple: repeal the Second Amendment (good luck with that!).

I guess you have to take in account how nervous the average person would be in the face of an intruder. Most people hands would be shaking like a leaf in the face of such a situation.Having a multiple rounds gun would probably increase their chances of survival.When the body starts producing fight or flight adrenaline rushes,it takes you over completely unless you´re trained to deal with such an occurrence.

A right to protect yourselfdoesn´t mean you get ti fire one shot and take your chances from there.

Leftists believe the reason for all this panic buying of guns is because white people are scared of black and brown people.Yeah,Obama is black or brown depending on what light he´s standing in.There wouldn´t be this kind of craziness if Obama was a true American.
Obama´s lack of predictability is the reason this whole country is in a meltdown right now.

Since taking office in 2009, President Barack Obama has formally proposed a total of 442 tax increases, according to an Americans for Tax Reform analysis of Obama administration budgets for fiscal years 2010 through 2015. The 442 total proposed tax increases does not include the 20 tax increases Obama signed into law as part of Obamacare. "History tells us what Obama was able to do. This list reminds us of what Obama wanted to do," said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform.

Both Boehner of Ohio and McConnell of Kentucky are crafty and highly resilient veterans who would be difficult for their opponents to bring down even under the best of circumstances.

Dubbed ‘Plan B’ the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has looked at the possibility of sucking carbon dioxide out of the air and reflecting sunlight into space. The document is important because it will be used as scientific guidance for governments as they negotiate a new global climate pact, set to be adopted in 2015 However some environmental activists watching the talks in Berlin believe geoengineering should not be attempted.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi.

Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
