    Yup. Every American has a right, nay a duty, to own a gun. Just incase the British try to recolonise :rolleyes:

    Anyway, this thread is so clearly flamebait that I'm embarrassed I even responded.

    Negative, I'm just big on free stuff for my fellow military folks. Saw it over at anandtech.

    My favorite one so far has to be the free admission for 1 day + family to Busch Gardens (seaworld, and a few other theme parks as well). Wife and I use them every year :D

    Cool

    The 2nd ammendment in the constutition says "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

    This means that we have the right to bear arms to form a regulated milita! It does not call for individual gun rights. I am an avid hunter and I do alot of shooting and target practicing(Im 30th in the nation for shooting). However, I do not believe that gun rights are protected by the constution. Im so sick of the NRA using the 2nd ammendment to argue for gun rights. Theres a reason why the NRA hav NEVER argued a case befor the supreme court. And when they did in 1936, they lost! I belive that citizens have the right to arm themselfs for protection and hunting but I dont think its a protected right!
