ACLU’s stance on the Second Amendment

ACLU’s stance on the Second Amendment

So, we’ve been getting a lot of comments about the ACLU’s stance on the Second Amendment. For those of you who didn’t catch our response in the blog comments, here it is again:

The ACLU interprets the Second Amendment as a collective right. Therefore, we disagree with the Supreme Court’s decision in D.C. v. Heller. While the decision is a significant and historic reinterpretation of the right to keep and bear arms, the decision leaves many important questions unanswered that will have to be resolved in future litigation, including what regulations are permissible, and which weapons are embraced by the Second Amendment right that the Court has now recognized.
As always, we welcome your comments.

Fuck the ACLU

Lying, superliberal bastards, twisting everything & everything decent to their kind of filth.

Amen ecaman

I am 65 soon to be 66. I grew up in Oakland, Ca. The blacks have always been treated equally, except in job opportunities. The first blackman in the Oakland Fire Dept was in the 1950's. I went to the same schools and had the same opportunities. In the early 1960's my mother worked for the Alameda DA investigating Welfare Fraud. They already had 3rd generation blacks on Welfare, then. So we have come along way and I never owned any slaves. So I don't owe anybody shit!

Reparations

SamD, how about the black "activists" who claim that the government (and unless I'm mistaken, the government is comprised of every single citizen of the country - including them) owes them "reparations" because of slavery. I've never owned any slaves either (although my ancestors back in Georgia did). I don't owe them one damn thing. And they don't owe me anything. It's even. I worked for a living til I was 67, paid my own way, supported my family, took care of my obligations (including military). Everyone can do the same. Every black friend I've ever had worked just like I did. Nobody, but nobody, is owed any kind of free ride. If anybody wants anything, they can damn well work for it. If they don't want to work, they can fucking starve & die, & we'll feed their bodies to the rats & coyotes.

Historical context

" Historical Interpretation"? The interpretation of collective rights is a progressive viewpoint which was not created until the early 1900's. Everything in the constituion has always been an individual right. Imagine a collective freedom of speech interpretation?
Cant pick and choose which amendments you follow.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do
