    Talking So cold, hard facts

    The state of Vermont where "every idiot can legally carry a gun everywhere" hardly bears resemblance to the country of Iraq!

    So Troop where are you getting your facts from and maybe you can tell us when was the last time one of the local Md thugs registered a handgun?
    Never, ever forget THE POLICE HAVE NO DUTY TO PROTECT YOU unless you are in their custody. If they exceed the "so called" reasonable response time or don't show up at all, you can NOT sue them. The only person who has a duty to protect you or your family is you.

    Unlike the recently touted "right to health care" which does NOT appear in the Constitution of the US or its amendments, "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." is specifically delineated. It is a RIGHT not a privilege - big difference.

    When was the last time T2T was in Iraq or Afghanistan for that matter? How about some real facts for T2T to quote: Baltimore has a 34.8 per 100,000 people murder or non-negligent manslaughter rate (only major cities of New Orleans (52.9) and St. Louis (40.5), exceed the rate.) [http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr...ables/table-6] Sounds like "gun control" has "done a bang up job" in Baltimore.

    {City of Baltimore: Pop 639,929 with 223 incidents in 2010 of murder or non-negligent manslaughter.**

    What the founders said about "keep and bear..."

    -- George Washington:
    A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.

    Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence ... From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that is good.


    - James Madison:
    Americans have the right and advantage of being armed unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.


    - Samuel Adams:
    The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.


    - Alexander Hamilton:
    The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.


    -- George Mason:
    When the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advised by an artful man, who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them; but that they should not do it openly, but weaken them, and let them sink gradually...I ask, who are the militia? They consist of now of the whole people, except a few public officers. But I cannot say who will be the militia of the future day. If that paper on the table gets no alteration, the militia of the future day may not consist of all classes, high and low, and rich and poor...


    -- Patrick Henry:
    Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?

    Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.


    - Thomas Jefferson:
    The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

    The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the people; that... it is their right and duty to be at all times armed.

    A strong body makes a strong mind. As to the species of exercise I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Let your gun, therefore, be the constant companion of your walks.

    Mary land is not a Maryland

    The newest posts on here are almost 3 years old and the underarm pits that are still running the state into the ground. The crook's carry their weapons brazenly, without a care in the world. But tax paying, law abiding citizens who follow state laws are treated like a the lowest form of life on the planet!!

    Perhaps not for much longer. Federal court ruled that Maryland's good and substantial is unconstitutional.

    T2T,

    According to the court in the Woollard Decision, this is what Bear means: Heller’s definition of one of the Amendment’s central terms, “bear,” further suggests that the right, though it may be subject to limitations, does not stop at one’s front door: “To bear arms,’ as used in the Second Amendment, is to ‘wear, bear, or carry... upon the person or in the clothing or in a pocket, for the purpose . . . of being armed and ready for offensive or defensive action in a case of conflict with another person’” 554 U.S. at 584
