The second amendment…

I am a concealed-weapon permit holder. I completely agree with the Second Amendment as it is written [and in its entirety].

The interpretations [and distortions] that have been made since then are really fucked up. Here’s a question for you. Do you really know why the second amendment was created? If you don’t, you need to look it up. Do you really think it’s OK for somebody to walk into a school and shoot a bunch of kids? If you do, get the fuck out of my country; you’re dead to me.

This bullshit needs to stop. There is absolutely no reason for a citizen to own an “assault rifle” [military-grade?]. I know what you’re going to say, What constitutes an assault rifle? I’m not gonna get into a debate over that. What I will say is when you go deer hunting, do you shoot a deer 30 times? No you don’t, because that would ruin the fucking meat! 

If you can’t get done what you need to get done using a tool/weapon with three shots? OK, maybe then you need to put the fucking gun away and go find something else to do with your time. 

So, here is what we need to do, and remember I am a gun owner, so this would apply to me as well. If you wanna, or I wanna get a gun, then fine, we can apply for a federal gun license. And the application fee is $500. That application will allow you to buy two weapons, a rifle, and a pistol. The rifle can only hold seven rounds. The pistol can only hold 10. Once you apply for the federally mandated permit and pay your money, you will be fingerprinted  and have to undergo a psychiatric evaluation. If you then pass the evaluation on the federal background check, you will be able to purchase the weapons. 

Twice a year you will also have to show that you are proficient in weapon safety and storage, as well as accuracy. You also have to be willing to defend your state.

Let me explain: the Second Amendment talks about having a well-regulated militia. So you are now a gun owner. You have a responsibility to your state. But that doesn’t mean that you get to go shoot people just willy-nilly: that means if your state calls upon you for assistance, you got no choice. You bought the weapon, stand up and fight. [Kinda like Switzerland.]

A well-regulated militia should also not just be about violence. A well-regulated militia should have to protect our children from crazy bastards with weapons. Every state militia should be charged with protecting our schools. This is going to make a lot of people pissy, but now you are fulfilling your [Second Amendment] duties and protecting our children 

Also, you are not armed at the schools. Your job is to stop the bullet. How many more people have to get injured or die before we use some common sense and make it a lot harder for people to purchase weapons? 

As I said at the beginning, I am a weapon owner, as well as a concealed-carry permit holder. I have been for a long time. I can tell you that it is way too easy for somebody to buy a weapon. When I was living in Wisconsin I went and took the Utah course for their concealed-weapons permit, it required a class as well as pistol qualification. I came to Florida and in this state you watch a 10 minute video and shoot one bullet. That’s stupid. Our illustrious governor also just signed a law that will make constitutional carry legal here. This means that if you have a valid state ID you can carry a gun. No training required. 

What the fuck? Wake up America!

The successful 1776 revolt against British rule in North America has been hailed almost universally as a great step forward for humanity. But the Africans then living in the colonies overwhelmingly sided with the British. In this trailblazing book, Gerald Horne shows that in the prelude to 1776, the abolition of slavery seemed all but inevitable in London, delighting Africans as much as it outraged slaveholders, and sparking the colonial revolt. 

Prior to 1776, anti-slavery sentiments were deepening throughout Britain and in the Caribbean, rebellious Africans were in revolt. For European colonists in America, the major threat to their security was a foreign invasion combined with an insurrection of the enslaved. It was a real and threatening possibility that London would impose abolition throughout the colonies—a possibility the founding fathers feared would bring slave rebellions to their shores. To forestall it, they went to war. 

The so-called Revolutionary War, Horne writes, was in part a counter-revolution, a conservative movement that the founding fathers fought in order to preserve their right to enslave others.
