Another "Anti" Defines The Constitution For Us

by Curt Brown

"Just think back to when your kids or grandkids were playing Little League ball of some sort ... football, baseball, soccer and how some parents made a real jerk of themselves. Some of the worst displays of bad temper I've ever seen was in the stands while watching some of those games. Parents teaching their kids some very bad habits.

Well, now the Springfield-Greene County Parks Department is requesting that Springfield City Council ban guns from sport fields and parks, and I think it's a great idea. We certainly don't need people carrying guns to parks where children play and families have picnics and the like. Parks should be for fun, not for hate.

Of course, the "gun groups," such as the NRA, are against any such action. They always seem to fear that "the boogeyman" is going to get them. I contend the NRA won't ever be happy until we all have bazookas on our backs or rocket launchers in our homes. For the average citizen to have machine guns, Uzies, etc. is absolutely absurd! Now, don't get me wrong, I'm OK with hunters having guns; even there, they don't need an automatic gun to deer hunt. After all it's supposed to be a "sport" not a "killing." The deer should have a chance to get away too.

The gun folks are always quoting the Second Amendment, but they never read the entire amendment. It reads: "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." It seems to me that "A well regulated Militia" refers, in today's world, to the police, patrol, sheriff, National Guard and our thousands of military forces ... not the average Joe Blow. All too many times the average person forgets to keep their weapons under lock and key, where their kids and grandkids can't get their hands on them."

Is it at ALL possible that this dork has yet to hear of the Heller decision? Even if he remains so out of touch, it's difficult to believe that all he has to offer is the same old liberal gun-grabbing reference to misinterpreting the 2nd.

And know what, the vast majority of us really don't care about what things "seem" to you, Curt, and your commie ass wouldn't even be worth mentioning were it not for the fact that whenever the nation's low-lives pipe up with anti-American drivel it behooves some of us to bring it to the attention of the real men of the world.

And not for nothing, Curt, but it's not Joe Blow anymores, it's Joe The Plumber.
