    Actually I'm saying that the Feds were given the responsibility for preserving that right, by force of law if necessary. For example, if the UN wanted to ban guns, they would be responsible for writing a law that says "it doesn't apply here". And in my opinion, they have failed miserably. Here is an old (2004) article from right after the "Assault Weapons Ban" was nullified and it explains everything very well, but in a readable format instead of just quoting regulations.

    That was a great article. Mac is very well researched, but imo I feel you missed the point if you feel federal government are responsible for preserving the rights.

    Repeatedly Mac states the founding fathers said the federal government is who will restrict or deny rights. Especially thoughs not explicitly written down. He goes on to talk about natural rights, if the Constitution never existed, we would all have our Rights.

    The feds do not have the responsibility of preserving the Rights. Those Rights will never disappear, they may be denied, but they exist. It's the People who have the responsibility to preserve their natural Rights.

    You can believe what you want, but the federal government is not here to preserve Rights, never was.

    There is so much good information in that article its hard to summarize all the pertinent parts. I urge you to re-read it. If you still feel it says the federal government preserves our Rights, please show me where.

    Maybe I wasn't clear enough. Yes the rights are natural, yes the framers feared that enumerating certain rights was an iffy prospect. By preserving the rights, I mean that they are aware that these are not to be messed with, and as our representatives it would be their duty to prevent any tyrant from attempting to usurp them.

    Remember that our "representatives" were intended to be regular citizens deviating from their regular life to take part in the duty of governing. Career politicians are the ones throwing a monkey wrench in the system. If you want to see where the real problem lies (other than the fact that the sheeple are ill informed and socialism is rampant) look at the previous professions of the members of Congress.

    Doing conservative math (because of numbers like "a few" and "several") over 85% of Congress listed either lawyer or state/local government as former jobs.

    Congressional Service

    Representative John Dingell (D-MI) has the longest consecutive service of any Member of the 110th Congress (52 years). He began serving on December 13, 1955.
    The average length of service of Members of the Senate is 12.8 years.
    Senator Robert C. Byrd (D-WV) has served longer (48 years) than any other Senator in history.

    We arrived at the location and got into line to pre-pay at the register. When it was our turn to pay, I reached for my wallet to suddenly realize that I had completely forgotten my wallet at home!

    I felt like a real dumb a$$.

    Luckily my wife had brought her purse, but I quickly realized that I was out in public armed with my Glock 27 with no I.D. and no CHL whatsoever (Not a good feeling).

    I excused myself from the line as I went back outside to our vehicle.
    I re-entered the vehicle making sure that nobody could see me disarming as I hid my sidearm inside the vehicle.
    I then locked up the vehicle and went back into the buffet to eat dinner with my family.
    My wife ended up driving us all back home.

    I felt 'very lucky' that I was not pulled over when I was driving, because it probably would have been a very bad day for me if I was pulled over by the wrong kind of law enforcement officer.


    Has this situation ever happened to any of my other brothers and sisters in arms?
    Did I handle it correctly?
    LOL LOL been there done that!

    Part of me wants to point out that I have never done that but I know if I were to do so the first thing I'd forget tomorrow morning would be.... I check 3 pockets every day, Cell, wallet, keys. I only carry about 1/3 of the time. I have not yet found a holster I like for the office and car when we are in the midst of record breaking heat. I hate IWB (tried it for a week. NOT FOR ME. So I'm still looking.
    Typos are for the entertainment of the reader. Don't let it go to your head!
