I have a simple message to everyone who is applauding the recent Supreme Court ruling regarding the 2nd Amendment: I am perfectly willing to not only let you have a gun but as many guns as you want. There's just one catch. You must prove to me, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that you are a member of "a well-regulated militia," as provided by the full wording of the 2nd Amendment. If you cannot, or will not, do this, then you do not get to have a gun.—Steve Herr
That is the best solution in the world.
Well first of all the author shows he didn't read the ruling beyond what the newspaper told him. The Supreme Court stated that firearm ownership was independent of militia membership. You know, that whole "Right of the People" part that YOU ignored.
Second, Federal law states that the majority of males are already members of the militia as well as the Illinois State Constitution. So much for you passing your High School Constitution class.
Third, why must I "prove to you" anything you arrogant prick? Perhaps you should have proven that you had a glimmer of basic education before you put crayon to paper.
And morons like this assist in deciding the future of this nation.
And to note, there are two more anti-gun letters printed on the same day. But the Trib isn't pushing an agenda, right?
