Meme

Obviously, this image isn’t incendiary to The People of the Gun. They understand – as the Supreme Court acknowledged in Heller and McDonald – that the Constitution’s Second Amendment protections against government infringement on the right to keep and bear arms apply to individuals, not a militia. That the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right, just like the right to free speech, protected by the First Amendment. The meme above should only inflame those . . .

who cling to the belief that the Second Amendment doesn’t prohibit background checks on gun buyers, firearms registration, machine gun bans, “assault weapon” bans, gun violence restraining orders, one-gun-a-month sales restrictions, concealed handgun licenses, open carry licenses, taxation on guns and ammunition and any other “gun control law.” So I’ll just leave this pic here. Feel free to copy and post it to your firearms-unfriendly Facebook friends.

        • Actually, Hummus made in Israel offends then deeply. They protected when Costco only carried a brand made by a Jewish owned company. 🙂

        • Bacon is about the only thing I think that could make hummus tolerable. Maybe even passable for a side of grits.

        • Our local Costco carries a ‘spicy avacado hummus’ which i find pretty tasty. But I am a vegetarian. Still like the smell of bacon though.

        • The parallel isn’t tight, because “the people” constitute the “militia”. But the grammatical construction is the same, so it works.

        • Spaceman Brown:

          Islam means “submission” it IS evil, it’s NOT a “faith” it IS a “political persuasion” like Communism. It’s a deadly ideology which demands the subjugation and/or destruction of all who refuse to submit to their rule, NO other “religion” does that.

          Now either get out of our way as we begin the fight here at home in the USA to preserve our nation and it’s superior culture or suffer the consequences as we render you down and use what’s left to grease our wheels.

          BTW I was raised Roman Catholic, I didn’t leave my church it left me and the current Pope is a weak pile of Leftist poop best relegated to the trash bin of history.

        • SB’s right. I think we can all recall exactly where we were when we first heard of the horror of nineteen Amish men having hijacked several wagons and bumped them into buildings. Oh the humanity!

    • someone get this on a shirt and have a little TTAG logo on like the left sleeve with an american flag on the right sleeve. sell them to the readers and have them be worn to gunshows, ranges, etc.

      would totally buy this and wear it all around campus.

      • It would be awesome; subtle, but if someone said it in their mind it should ring a bell, plant the seed.

        Some people of course would think it’s about healthy living or feeding the hungry which would be lolzy. Not that I take those things lightly. The flag is a good idea, kind of make it a little clearer that it’s a civics thing.

  1. just had a debate about the 2A clause with an ultra liberal friend from church who thinks he is smarter than everyone, even though he went to a school not in the top 10 (like moi) and was not on the Law Review (like me). this is perfect !

    Edit: By the way, when he asked me if I was in a militia, I pointed out that yes, under federal law, we both were, as well as under state law. that zinged him.

        • Next time you see him, get right in his face and shout “Ten Hut!” If he asks you what you did that for, tell him you are just regulating the militia.

  2. This is actually more relevant to the idea of the right to bear arms as a fundamental right of any living creature than some may realize. The entire point of existence is to survive; the drive for food and self defense are instinctual

    • I don’t believe that the words instinctual, and liberal, ever appear in the same sentence, other than to say they instinctually do the opposite of normal human instinct.

      • They’re obsessed with their own crotches, and are pretty much primal, barely human animals… They even found a way to sidestep prostitution laws by turning their own unloved and unwanted children into cash cows… They’re nothing if not instinctual…

  3. I still like how the argument basically is that the government gave itself the right to arm itself, yet all the rest of the amendments are bars against the government impacting the individual.

  4. the Constitution’s Second Amendment protections against government infringement on the right to keep and bear arms apply to individuals, not a militia. True.
    A militia is comprised of individuals bearing arms however.
    I think one of the founding fathers defined who would be included in the militia, and I think the answer was just about everybody.

    • 10 USC 311. Welcome to the Federal Militia. and Don’t forget the state. My state says I am a member until I am 64

    • YOUR militia is whatever you want it to be. You and your cat if that is what you desire and the mission is whatever you decide.

      No organization, structure or arrangement is specified or required by the Constitution. What makes it as great as the rest of the Constitution and makes the statist demtards go crazy.

  5. In time of crisis, a criminal bearing down on your existence, turn to food it will protect and preserve your life…good luck with that.

  6. I like the other meme too:

    A well-schooled electorate, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and read books shall not be infringed.

    Who has a right to keep and read books? The people or a well-schooled electorate?

    • Here’s the fun part- The leftist really believe only those educated to their (flawed) thinking should vote. One of the problems most progressives have is the fact that even though they claim to be for “worker’s rights,” none of them have ever held a working class job, and the damned working class keeps voting against them. So they write it off as “lack of education,” when in fact, working class people just lack “indoctrination.”

  7. Should say “Who has the right to keep and eat food?”, not “Who has a right to food?” I know left-wing people that think people have a right to food, as in a right to receive food from the government, and that the people should be forced to pay taxes to the government to provide food to people who will not provide it for themselves. Not wanting to get into an off-topic conversation about that keeps me from sharing this image.

  8. The parallel isn’t tight, because “the people” constitute the “militia”. But the grammatical construction is the same, so it works.

  9. That doesn’t mean that we can’t have “common sense” regulations to ensure those with a family history of heart disease can just get access to “assault” vittles like bacon and steaks. It also doesn’t mean that we can’t establish food free zones or licensing requirements, and require safety training on proper handling of food, so people FEEL safe.

    No one needs an entire rack of ribs, side of beef, whole pig, or any other such thing unless they are compensating for a lack of something else, lolz! Really, no one NEEDS more than a few pieces of fruits and vegetables a day, and never more than 2,000 calories, so I don’t see why you would NEED any meat or anything anyway. All you NEED are a few vegetables, a bit of flour, various nuts, berries, bark, and twigs, and that will suffice for most people.

    There is no NEED for anyone outside of the police and military to have full on “assault” meals with high protein capacity meats, untraceable (ghost) fats like butter and bacon grease, and utensils designed to do nothing other then scoop the most food into a persons mouth in the shortest time possible.

    I support the right to keep and eat food, but I think that right has arbitrary limits that I label ‘common sense’, have made up entirely out of whole cloth based on my feelings and sociopolitical views, and I think the government should enforce those limits at gun point. I also think that the government should punish anyone who sets fire to the innumerable strawmen that I leave in my wake, because that’s totally not cool. #Strawlivesmatter

    Also, I’m active in the fight for common sense food control regulations because I believe my hopes, expectations, and well wishes regarding how the world should be, override basic, fundamental truths about human nature, economics, and yes, sometimes even physics. I believe this because it’s what I have been told my entire life, because I am a special, unique snowflake, and this kind of fluffy nearly 100% catch phrase and platitude based activism fills the empty space inside where logic and rationality would otherwise reside if I weren’t a bitter, insufferable, social justice warrior. Most of all I support this cause because it makes me feel powerful and superior to impose arbitrary rules on other people while pretending that my cause also makes me morally superior.

    Think of the children.

  10. Using this criteria, bangers and mash for breakfast may be classified as a weapon of mass destruction.

    But then again, rarely are the things prepared by the Brits considered food anyway.

  11. Not that I disagree with the sentiment, but y’all forgot the comma after food. It should read
    “A well balanced breakfast being necessary to the start of healthy day, the right of the people to keep and eat food, shall not be infringed.”

    The Second Amendment reads:
    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.

    Those stupid commas has been giving ammo to the hoplophobes (no matter what the founders wrote in their personal papers or what is in the Federalist Papers) for decades.
