    Frankly, I think the gun grabbers are suicidally crazy. They don't understand the United States, they are entirely out of touch with this nation's heartland, they don't understand their own Constitution, and they don't understand the citizens who have protected them and their rights to act and speak like petulent teenagers for untold decades.

    This letter is intelligent, articulate and accurate. It explains the 2nd amendment in a clear, forthright manner. I hope the gun grabbers get a clue soon. Their idiocy could lead to disaster if left unchecked.

    Here's more on the craziness:

    Regulating Activities of Criminals:

    Regulating Activities of Law Abiding Citizens:

    Imagine a United States after the gun grabbers got their way. An entire nation where citizens were so defenseless against the armed criminals and so mistrustful of the authorities that only 6% of malicious woundings and murders were ever prosecuted.

    I cannot fathom how the citizens of New York State must feel right now, given King Cuomo's reign of terror.

    It's amazing how humans tend to repeat the errors of the past. Human history filled with oppression of rulers over the ruled. For a short time it was otherwise here. Reversion to the mean, what a haunting thought.

    Senator Cruz explains why Dim-bunny Feinstein's bill is pure drivel.

    It's depressing. All around me I see intelligent, well-educated citizens, some of them historians with advanced degrees, falling into despondency. There doesn't seem to be much we can do against the growing tide of ignorance and moral depravity that is disassembling our once great republic.

    They may be well educated but I have to question just how intelligent. I would be considered to be not well educated, perhaps not even very smart, but I can understand the Constitution and its amendments. I fail to understand how legal scholars and jurist can twist and mutilate the Constitution to suit their need or have the opinion that the Constitution is a dead document and of no value. I reject those with such beliefs.

    The Feinsteins of this world want to subject everyone but their special self interest groups to a different set of laws. I see Feinstein and others trying to create a ruling class and a class of those ruled. Such movement is extremely dangerous to the citizens of any country. All effort needed must be put forth to prevent these kind of schemes from fruition.

    Are those people who work to destroy and weaken our country intelligent? I suggest not. Evil perhaps, but not intelligent.

    Ultimately I see the same thing. They see social decay. We see social decay. They seek a way to thrive as a ruling class after the social decay has reached its zenith. We still hope to somehow reverse the social decay.

    And the efforts of many to assert that only SCOTUS and lawyers trying cases before SCOTUS can properly interpret the Constitution, thereby dispossessing us of it. Removing this document from the purview of reasonably well-informed citizenry is the same thing as depriving them of its protections.The document was written to be understood by the people, was it not? The reasoning of SCOTUS must be defensible before reasonably well informed people as well.

    I couldn't agree more. The Constitution belongs to every citizen. Some of the "modern interpretations" of the Constitution made by federal judges are ludicrous. They sound like little kids cobbling together nonsense sentences on "Opposites Day." It's important Americans read and understand the Constitution, and the "interpretations" made by judges.
