Tom Toles Cartoon: The Second Amendment And Aggressive Ignorance

The Second Amendment:

"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."

This amendment begins with the phrase "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state." The amendment begins with these words because none of The Founding Fathers believed in a "standing army," preferring instead local militias that could be quickly mustered into unified force.

The right to "keep and bear arms" derives from citizen participation in well-regulated militias.
Absent citizen participation in a "well-regulated militia" there is no constitutional right to bear arms.

  1. In 2008 a video playing factory worker in Japan rented a two ton truck, drove it into a crowd in an amusement area, jumped out and stabbed seventeen killing seven on the spot.

    The mass murder events can be correlated to heavy video game play but no one has he simple key piece of information to understand why the correlation happens.

    Mass murder events happen around the world but are not being reported in American media.

    VisionAndPsychosis.Net, a 13 year investigation of Subliminal Distraction, explains what is happening to cause them. It's the same problem that causes college, youth, and video game player suicides.

    Don't believe me? I can cause depression in an experiment that copies the "mental break causing design mistake" engineers discovered. Details by email only, It is not on the site. While safe if instructions are assiduously followed, it is too dangerous for careless use.

    If everyone with a computer at home or in a dorm room were told why the cubicle was created in 1968 these mass violence events would stop.
