    Although I do say that I have a certain appeal that is only appreciated by my two cats and my wife.

    But.... given the choice between brains or beauty....... gee..... I'd settle for either!

    I thought I recognized the photo, but chamberland was union wasn't he? I'm thinking culps hill the second days fight right?
    Thanks for the vote of confidence!

    Chamberlain WAS Union. His "day" was on Little Round Top, FAR Left end of the Union Line. My wife's family is from around here, since before the CW. I'm just along for the great weather..... that and it was the best place to "bail out" to when I lost my job in Chicago. (Which marked the fourth time I had been required to "start over" in my lifetime. Gets old after a while. LOL!)

    The Constitution was ratified on September 13, 1788. The Bill of Rights (the first ten amendments to the Constitution) were not adopted until December 15, 1791, more than 3 years after ratification of the Constitution.

    Next you'll be claiming that Paul Revere rode through the night firing shots and ringing bells warning the British not to take away our guns.

    OK. The Bill of Rights WAS signed ex post facto to the Constitution. Anyone who has any knowledge of the history of the whole shebang knows that, and should also know that the proposal for them was presented PRIOR to adoption of the Constitution, finalized afterwords and, since everyone "knew" they were coming, signed off on them.

    Good on you for being able, at least, to read dates and differentiate between them, time-wise.

    Actually Paul Revere did not shoot at all, albiet armed with a "Tommy Gun" and a pair of LAWs. He DID, however, forget his radio and could not call in the "Arc Light" on the Brits, as planned. Exactly why he had to ride off to make the warning of the British movement. He DID, however, leave a couple of trip wire triggered Claymores in the most likely British avenue of approach, thereby earning himself the Bronze Star.

    I have, bye the way, a couple of the hairs of the original horse 'ol Paul rode. I would be more than willing to sell them to you, for a proper price, of course. I'll even throw in a few shares of a Bridge I own interest in up NY way. (You old History buff, you!)

    Gunny, I love reading your posts... BTW if you ask sarah Palin, she will tell you that Paul revear rode out that night to warn the British...
    I myself have a horse shoe from Pauls ride... It fell off in front of my great great great great grandparents house. I too would part with this prize for the right amount of gold.... I don't however own any bridge realestate, for barter or trade..not even some swampland in FLA... I have to start investing...

  9. The amendment means that we have the right to keep and bear arms to protect ourselves from the government. Think about it. After revolting against the tyrannical king George, and his well regulated militia, they probably thought the time may come again where the American people will have to do it again. That's my interpretation anyways, in a nutshell.

    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.[]

    What the devil does this mean? The language is Vague to say the least, so vague that the Supreme Court has been struggling among themselves for generations and still can’t all agree on its intended meaning.

    I read it and I don’t quite understand it, is it any wonder that our LEO’s have trouble with its meaning.

    Instead of fighting for our 2nd amendment right, we should be fighting for a rewrite of the 2nd amendment. One that clarifies its intention and our specific rights; such that it eliminates any possible confusion as to its meaning. It should also make clear an understanding that it be upheld by both the Federal and State Governments.

    What say ye to that my fellow citizens.
    I think much is lost in interpretation as our liberals seek to redefine its meaning in light of a different era. Perhaps our founding fathers would have been clearer if they wrote it like a text message for all the carpel-tunnel syndrome techno-critics. U GT WAT I MEN?

    Our founding fathers intent can be found in the numerous writings of the time by everyone from the signers of the Declaration of Independence to Thomas Paine. They could not have foreseen a time when people wouldn't understand the vernacular used. In writing the bill of rights they wanted to ensure we would never be under the rule of a tyrant king/leader again so they created a form of government by the people. It was predicated on the principals that "what God gave me, no man shall legislate away" an "all freedom exist at the end of a gun." It was intended to ensure the people would never lose these precious protections of self governance and freedom to pursue life, religion, etc... free of persecution.

    Now some people want to view the bill of rights as a "living breathing document," its interpretation subject to changing times. A new world order. This is a great vision belonging to the likes of George Soros, Dr. Evil himself.
