2nd Amendment to the Constitution of The United States of America

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.

"I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few politicians."
- George Mason (father of the Bill of Rights and The Virginia Declaration of Rights)

Old McDonald had a gun...EI-EI-O

..and now he can own it legally in Chicago!!!

SCOTUS just over turned Chicago's gun ban.....

Decision is here...

Its been funny to see the media circus surrounding this issue and the stories of citizens that have defended themselves in their own homes with "illegal" firearms...

Otis McDonald sued the city of Chicago after being repeatedly burglarized and threatened in his South Chicago neighborhood. The 76 year old grandparent got tired of the reactive nature of the Chicago police in protecting him and his family and decided to stand up for himself and assert his 2nd Amendment right to bear arms for protection. He is not your typical gun owner, a life long Democrat, he is a classic example of how the proper view on this subject can be found on both sides of the political spectrum. Just like surgery is never minor when its happening to you, gun ownership is not purely an academic issue when its your life that needs defending.

way to go Otis!! the common man is heard!!
