There is absolutey no doubt about what the Founding Fathers intent was with the 2nd Amendment. it is evidenced over and over in their writings:

"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence." --George Washington

"[T]he people are not to be disarmed of their weapons. They are left in full possession of them."
--Zacharia Johnson, speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention, 1788

"We established however some, although not all its [self-government] important principles. The constitutions of most of our States assert, that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves, in all cases to which they think themselves competent, (as in electing their functionaries executive and legislative, and deciding by a jury of themselves, in all judiciary cases in which any fact is involved,) or they may act by representatives, freely and equally chosen; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed."
--Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Cartwright, 1824

Yes I am onre of those boys that has had a gun in my hand since befor I started school. even if it was an Easy Ryder bb gun. I have been hunting ever since I was old enough to carry my bb gun.
Then by age 8I was hunting with my grandfathers Iver Johnson 12 guage. Then age 17 I was in uniform in the U.S. Army protecting our country and my rights to bare arms.
I am now past the age of 50 and a officer of the law I still feel like I am trying to protect my rights by keeping the unlawful as i am told to call them "offinders" on the inside of the fence. I dont think us law abbiding citizens and protectors of our families and our country should have our rights taken away for any reason.
The problem ive seen that Washington wants to tax the ammo so hight that we cannot afford to purchous it

As a recent e/mail I received so succintly put it , A person with a weapon is a 'citizen' ,; a person without one , is a 'subject.' ...... I believe Federalist Paper #10 specifically shatters the "in-a-militia-sense-only" myth that most Liberals espouse ...... Frank Kowalski

I have heard that Tim Kaine will be vetoing the Concealed Carry in Restaurants bill. I have written him requesting that he approve the bill. It did not have enough votes to overcome a veto.

Amendment 2 - Right to Bear Arms. Ratified 12/15/1791.

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.

"Every citizen should be a soldier. This was the case with the Greeks and Romans, and must be that of every free state".
Thomas Jefferson

John Adams quotes:
"Be not intimidated... nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardness."

"Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty's teeth."
George Washington "

The right of self-defense never ceases. It is among the most sacred, and alike necessary to nations and to individuals."
President James Monroe (November 16, 1818)

"It's not surprising, then, that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion" Barrack Obama

The gov. we have in charge now will do every thing it can to make every citizen dependant on them. They will try and take our guns, tax on cattle (which people raise for food), they will end up taxing those who have out door woodburners, saying it's poluting the air, control all work in this country so you have to work for them to feed your family. I believe we will go beyond socialism if we are no careful and lose our constitutional right and we as a people better watch out for what is coming. Do not give up your guns, no matter what. If you do our country will truly be lost.

Finally figured out where I needed to click to join. Stuck with dialup here so...

Thank you for the invite Tom. I have been a VCDL member for about 3 years now. Used to be with the NRA (did a 3 year stint with the group Negotiating Rights Away). Another good organization out there if it hasn't been mentioned yet is the jpfo.org (Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership). We got "bring back the bill of rights" bumper stickers from them. Looking into GOA now.

I just started a discussion group on this issue. Please feel free to join.
I also recommend the Virginia Gun Forum, http://vagunforum.net/
and Virginia Defense League for Virginia issues, then of Course GOA for federal issues.

Howdy Yawl! Just joined this group. I am a member of VCDL, GOA and a life member of NRA. I too am concerned about the NRA now. I want to know who is and isn't pro-2nd amendment before voting the NRA ballot.
