Guns (02/13/2013)
From: Jim Schultz

The Second Amendment to the Constitution reads: A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

I looked up the word militia in Webster's New World College Dictionary and found it to read: 1. originally any military force, but later it became an army composed of citizens rather than professional soldiers, called up in time of emergency. 2. in the United States all able-bodied citizens between 18 and 45 years old who are not already members of the regular Armed Forces; members of the National Guard and of the Reserves (of the Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, Navy and Marine Corps.)

All of these organizations constitute a well-regulated militia. And every state has the right to have a well-regulated state militia.

The first well-regulated militia in our nation were the Minutemen in the Revolutionary Army. Later they became the Home Guard and their base of operations in Minnesota was south of Lake City where you can still see where the camp was if you look toward the river where the tall pine trees are still standing next to Highway 61. They later became the Minnesota National Guard and moved to Camp Ripley north of Little Falls, and are still a well-regulated militia.

Those of us who were in the military took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies foreign and domestic. Are the drones taking out foreign and domestic enemies?

How many leaders of the NRA hold membership cards in paramilitary organizations? How many members of paramilitary organizations are members of the NRA?

How many of the people in these organizations are Germanic-minded and believe they are of a pure Aryan race? As we all know there were six women who tried to stop a man with a automatic assault weapon at Sandy Hook Elementary School to protect the children of that school. Because of the courage they have shown all of them should be awarded the civilian equivalent of the Congressional Medal of Honor posthumously, for trying to protect the children of that school, because they gave their lives trying to do so. How many truckloads of dead babies do we have to see before Congress becomes more afraid of the voters than of the lobbyists in Washington?

The duck hunters in Minnesota are by state law allowed to have only three shotgun shells in their guns when hunting ducks. This is to keep from overkill of the migratory birds, and gives most of the ducks a chance to get away.

The children at Sandy Hook Elementary School didn't even have as much of a chance as the ducks in Minnesota.

The last part of the Second Amendment is about the right to bear arms.

The NRA leadership is telling us that the government is going to take away all of our guns. Of course this is a "big lie," that a good number of the gullible Germanic-minded people believe.

Now I am going to plagiarize a history book of mine that says: Adolf Hitler believed that the masses "more easily fall victim to a big lie rather than a little one." He also believed that Germanic-minded people were more easily controlled.

I think Congress should strike a new medal that could be called the Congressional Medal of Dishonor and should be awarded to politicians and lobbyists throughout our nation. This medal should be hung from a yellow ribbon. There are members of both major parties that are qualified.

Eric Cantor gave a speech about fair play, looking out for the middle class, also taking care of the needy. He even mentioned womens' rights. His speech was almost word for word what the president said the week before. Could this be called plagiarism?

If you don't happen to have a gun, you can cut your sleeves off to bare arms.
