The expression “keep and bear arms” is re-interpreted to mean…

keep your arms locked in a safe at home, and bear all the bitchy, punitive things we choose to do to you while we work up the power to confiscate them.

Or so it seems.

“(T)he First Circuit of the US Court of Appeals ruled that the right to self-defense is at its “zenith inside the home,” and the right is “plainly more circumscribed” outside.

“The “core right” protected by the Second Amendment is for citizens to use arms in defense of home, the court said in its decision. “Public carriage of firearms for self-defense falls outside the perimeter of this core right.”

And yet people still live in Massachusetts. I don’t get it, but maybe it’s a really nice place aside from the dictatorial rulers and the slave-market rules.

    Yup. I felt much safer when I saw that. Glad to see the state protecting us from gun violence so actively.

    Outside your home, you will be an unarmed victim, vulnerable to any aggression by anyone who is armed. Like all government employees and their sub-contractors. Live free or die is now a contemporary motto. Maybe it always was…

    The good news is that on appeal, this law will be struck down my SCOTUS. Ah, sweet thought!

    Had the same problem, feralfae. It seems that on occasion the site requires that you once again “sign in” at the bottom.

    The 2nd is not about self-defense or hunting. They’ve turned the thing upside-down so it will be easier to confiscate when the gov say “we’ll defend you!”.

To the stake with the heretic!
