The quote of the day is presented by Guns.com.
The purpose of the Second Amendment is to ensure a well regulated — which is to say, well supplied and well prepared — militia.
We’re falling down on that responsibility. While there are more than 300 million privately owned guns in the United States there are also millions and millions of members of the militia who are not armed. In certain rogue cities and states, it’s legally difficult for members of the militia to be properly armed. And as a result, those rogue cities and states have massive gun violence problems.
This has to stop. I’m proposing that we campaign to reduce gun violence, and to meet our constitutional duty, by requiring that every member of the militia — which, of course, we’ll redefine to eliminate the obvious sexism and make it all adults — must own at least one long gun, one handgun, and 1000 rounds of ammunition for each, or pay an annual $1000 tax for failing to do so. As I pointed out the last time I brought this up, the Supreme Court’s decision on Obamacare makes it clear that it’s constitutional to require people to buy a product, so that shouldn’t be a problem. And, federal law would override the local laws in rogue cities like Chicago that prevent members of the militia from fulfilling their Constitutional duty.
