Please show me the part in the constitution or bill of rights where is says once we get standing army the common man will no longer have the right to own a firearm
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state
You just answered your own question, its all over the world. Where as the average US citizen with a firearm lives here he/she would be the first line of defense.
Guns don't = incibility but the gov't knows that we will not go down without a fight.
Is the army so incompitent it can't protect Americans?
Or is it so good it can kill American citizens with no reprisal if those citizens aren't packed?
Make up your mind.

1: It says a well-formed militia being necessary to etc. That MEANS as long as, or because, or due to. It is outdated.
2: If you honestly believe an attacking army is going to hold back because "the people have guns" you're dreaming. You really and truly are. The army you have at home could destroy your population if it so desired.
3: Wrong. The government needed access to men and weapons at the time and this was how. By telling Americans it's "a right to bear arms" they said "you're our army if we need you" and nothing more.
They don't need you anymore.
And again, how is the government so inept it can't get its army back to defend it and needs it people, but so crafty it has the ability to attack its own citizens with no reprisal if you don't have a gun?
As usual, you're looking at this too simply. If you took out the second amendment and replaced it with one that ACTUALLY SAYS what you all claim the second amendment does, I'd be happy (well, happier). Right now, you're just lying to yourselves about what you're "rights" are supposed to be and hiding behind a politically driven decision that came from SCOTUS.

What exactly do you mean 'too big for its britches'?
At what point do you need to get your gun and shoot someone?
Because they've raised some taxes?
Because they've declared unnecessary wars abroad?
You seem very paranoid that your government hates you and your neighbours constantly want to break in and steal all of your stuff.I collect: Orlando Magic Charlotte Bobcats UNC Alumni International Players Rudy Gay and James Harden.

have you seen all the shootings and crime over here? it does not mean to live in fear, but have some sense. why do you think the rape crimes are going up at colleges? people walk around and think nothing will ever happen and/or our too busy on the cellphone to see anything that may or may not happen.
does this mean carry a gun everywhere you go? for me no, but it means have some common sense. stay where it is safe when you can, look around. look in your car before you get in, look at your house when you pull up. you don't have to be a ninja, just have some awareness.
if you own a gun to fight our own army, then I am unsure what to say. don't most of us have relatives, friends, the children of friends in the armed forces? drones, tank, missiles, gernades, you are better off not being there when they come.Jay Shrewsbury
