So why don't you take up the issue with him? That is what he said.
Because the post I quoted was yours.
According to wiki...Rights are legal, social, or ethical principles of freedom or entitlement; that is, rights are the fundamental normative rules about what is allowed of people or owed to people according to some legal system, social convention, or ethical theory.
Wiki is wrong. That's describing ethics, not rights. Rights are natural and inherent in man.
Are you saying that people are not allowed to drive a truck?
You'd have to be pretty stupid to think that by saying driving a truck is not a right, I meant that people are not allowed to drive trucks. Yep, pretty stupid.
At least 1,500. Modern semiautomatic weapons can discharge a round and load the next bullet into the chamber faster than even the nimblest of fingers can pull the trigger.
Wow. That's pretty impressive.
Seems like it would have been easier for you to just answer the question instead of ignoring it, but, clearly, you can't.
FBI studies have shown that a novice can fire three shots in less than a second, and a trained shooter can double that.
Still doesn't answer the question.
(Two of the officers in the 1999 Amadou Diallo shooting emptied their 16-bullet magazines in about four seconds.)
So, were you not smart enough to understand the question? Is that why you're ignoring it?
That means an experienced gunman can fire off a 20-round magazine—the likely capacity of Hasan’s gun—in 3.3 seconds.
Why can't you answer the question?
It is one sentence therefore no separation of anything. A comma denotes a pause.
The Second Amendment
is naturally divided into two parts: its prefatory clause (“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State”) and its operative clause (“the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed”). To perhaps oversimplify the opposing arguments, the “states’ rights” thesis emphasized the importance of the prefatory clause, arguing that the purpose of the clause was to protect the states in their authority to maintain formal, organized militia units. The “individual rights” thesis emphasized the operative clause, so that individuals would be protected in the ownership, possession, and transportation of firearms.
Amendment II. BEARING ARMS | U.S. Constitution Annotated | US Law | LII / Legal Information Institute (cornell.edu)
In the 2nd amendment, the people are the well regulated militia allowed to keep and bear arms. In the scenario I'm going to dishonetly attribute to you, the people are any untrained unregulated Tom Dick or Harry that are untrained and unregulated are allowed to keep and bear arms.
Where does the Constitution say somebody has to be trained before they can exercise a right?
That is your understanding..
Actually, I just cited Cornell University Law School affirming exactly what I stated.
.but the 2nd amendment of the constitution does not say that...here is what it says... “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.”
Exactly. The prefatory clause says "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state" and the operative clause says, "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." Please find a grown up to help you read this, since you do not appear to be able to do so on your own. It is the people who's right shall not be infringed, not the militia.
The militia is the people who keep and bear arms. You are saying that the founding fathers who were about law and order were saying that every Tom, Dick, and Harry can have guns without regulation or restriction.
Yes. That's exactly what they said. And, not only that, but they stated in the Federalist Papers that they wanted the citizenry to have the same arms as the government. They said "the people", not "some people" or "people we approve of". Just "the people". And then they said, "shall not be infringed", not "well, maybe infringed a little bit" or "shall not be infringed unless snowflakes are triggered because the weapon looks scary".
