And we may be seeing a replay of that same analogy about to play out on American soil.
 -- J Carlton, Calgary     
    WOW !!! a great summation. Carlton, I couldn't agree more. Starting with Hitler's changing the meaning of words and statutes. Then moving to confiscate the means of defense against tyranny. By way of example; the meaning of "well regulated" in the context of We The People's right to keep and bear arms originally meant, each individual's arms in a militia setting (regulation) is to be beyond mere adequate. The occupying statist theocracy now infesting this land says that the meaning or well regulated now implies nothing more than the imposition of proper discipline and training. That means, as in Hitler's Germany, Amerika's malignant malefactors want We The People to bring nothing more than proper discipline and training to their gun fight. This quote could not be any more appropriate or accurate.

    I pray that some peoples will stop seeing race and wake up and see a man for what he stands for, not what he looks like or the color of his skin. With MLK saying this, I can only hope that everyone will start paying close attention to current times and compare this to history. (yeah, you would have to study history a bit).

    This is a great quote. Just because something is legal doesn't make it right.

    Mike, something I picked up I thought you might find interesting:
    The Second Amendment is really little more than "window dressing" to satisfy one of the Virginia signers. The real "meat" is in Article 1, Section 8 listing powers/responsibilities of Congress. Among them are: "To provide and maintain a Navy" but only "To raise and support Armies-" and "To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;" also "To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia," and the Militia of the United States, by Law, consists of every able-bodied male citizen between the ages of 18 and 45. In short, we are to have a defense similar to that of the Swiss, who have never been invaded by a foreign power.
    Any questions?

    The Jackboots of the Obama Administration have been trampling the Constitution and our Freedom for the last four years. Unfortunately the general population is in complete denial and refused to see through the fog of free stuff and empty promises.

    What is in store for the USA during the next four years?
     -- Ken, Spokane     
    Carlton, good piece. The "Laws of the Union" were clearly natural laws - the law of nature and of nature's God (the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land, with its legal positivism canons, is dramatically adverse and, diametrically opposed thereto). Government schools and media will not allow Dr. King's message to get out.

    It is now considered treasonous to express the very ideas that brought about the War for Independence. It is 1984 all over again.
