I was recently in a strange debate about the United States constitutional amendment #2 regarding the right to bear arms. The debate involved a conspiratorial element that the population was being disarmed to render them helpless against the inevitable new world order. It wasn’t a heated debate because I really don’t care and didn’t have a point. I agree however that the problem is not uncle Joe protecting his family from intruders or cougar attacks. The issue is more about the illegal gun trade that kills people everyday while the ‘protecting’ government makes a small mint off of it.
There seemed to be a lot of confusion regarding what the 2nd amendment means as per the wording of it. Some say it’s vague. Here are some of my thoughts that made the arguing counterpart leave. Thank God.
Perhaps the writers of the constitution were referring to actual bear arms? If bear arms were a hot commodity back in the day, then why shouldn’t you have the right to them? This is way better than killing the entire bear is it not? I mean, yes the bear would lose its arms but he would still have hind legs and be able to live a fairly productive bear life of eating berries/shitting every ten minutes.
Or maybe it was a misspelling by the scribe? I know for a fact that people back then wore long sleeves. Possibly because they had small white arms due to Joe Weider not being born yet and hence… no weight lifting. Nevertheless, I would have supported their right to bare arms because I can’t stand long sleeves. They are annoying and make my wrists uncomfortable.
Now, if you thought you had a right to other people’s bare arms you’d be mistaken because that crosses the line of personal property. It would be they same if someone tried to steal the bear arms I recently acquire from a Grizzly. You can’t have them!!! It’s my right!!!
I can hear it now. ”hey those bears have a right to their own arms”!!! Sure, but if I want them, I’m going to go get them because of the whole animal to human hierarchy thing that makes me the more intelligent species.
Bear arms come in handy. I like to go camping and used them to scratch sleeping campers tents. Further, it’s fun to unzip the tent and just reach around inside with the bear arms while snorting. Or if I don’t feel like that kind of entertainment, I could just stay home and snuggle with them. Much better than the bear arms that snuggled me during time in prison but that is a different story entirely.
They could also come in handy at public forms, like say, a debate about the constitution. All of those human arms in the air awaiting the chance to expound stupid opinions and ideas would be no match to the grizzly arm waving to the sound of “ooh ooh ooh, me next”!!!!
Here is a picture that I just drew to illustrate my point:
Yes it is for sale.
