The Illinois state legislature has just introduced House Resolution 855, that pushes to “urges the courts, especially the U.S. Supreme Court, to adhere to the clear wording of the Second Amendment being a right afforded to state sponsored militias and not individuals.” State Representative Emanuel “Chris” Welch is the tyrant who dreamed up this ridiculous cure for violent crime in his state that already is one of the highest in the nation. The ignorant perception that taking away guns from everyone and making them illegal will surely be abided by all the criminals is laughable at best. The solution for high crime areas is lifting all restrictions for the possession of inanimate defense objects.
In the case of District of Columbia v. Heller, the played out argument that only a state militia has the right to be armed was eventually shot down. The clear definition of the second part in the 2nd Amendment clearly says “the right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed”.
The Land of Lincoln legislature reintroduced the losing argument of Justice John Paul Stevens to help them portray their excuse to strip more Human Rights from the people that they serve.
Justice Stevens dissented with this regurgitated garbage, “The Second Amendment was adopted to protect the right of the people of each of the several States to maintain a well-regulated militia. It was a response to concerns raised during ratification of the Constitution that the power of Congress to disarm the state militias and create a national standing army posed an intolerable threat to the sovereignty of the several States. Neither the text of the Amendment nor the arguments advanced by its proponents evidenced the slightest interest in limiting any legislature’s authority to regulate private civilian uses of firearms. Specifically, there is no indication that the Framers of the Amendment intended to enshrine the common-law right of self-defense in the Constitution.”
Section 22 of the Illinois state constitution reads: “Subject only to the police power, the right of the individual citizen to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” The lawmakers have still ignored their own state documents, but making up laws as they go is nothing new. Marlon Kimpson, a South Carolina state senator filed a firearm registration and semi-automatic gun ban. Also an anti-freedom congressman from Rhode Island, David Cicilline has thrown in his own draconian bill to ban all semi-automatic handguns and long guns in his own state. In Texas, this year they finally allowed their citizens to carry their handguns in plain view but only after training has been purchased and completed to state standards, then an extortion fee is paid for a license. They even threw in specific holster requirements and added an amendment for cops to ask for your “papers” just for carrying your gun. Pretty embarrassing for the Lone Star State.
These government entities being so anxious to disarm the public just opens up an aggressive can of snakes to display their ever-increasing threat of an all out theft of their personal property from their private property. The high decibel scream of resistance from gun owners will be heard far and wide and will echo across the land. We know damn well that these 1st class citizens have well-armed security guards to guarantee their own safety. The gun-grabbing politicians do not reside in or near any neighborhoods with high crime rates, so the results of their unjust and unconstitutional laws will have no effect on their lives.
We’ll just adhere to the 14th Amendment serfdom and continue to rise in opposition to civil or political authority. Releasing our American insurgency and openly and actively resisting the execution of unjust laws through mass civil disobedience will suffice for now, while the absorption rate of Human Rights slowly increases. We’ll continue to spread the knowledge necessary to turn the tables on the countrywide gang of authoritarians who want to limit our self-defense.

First off: Allowing states to word their own second amendment was a mistake. Secondly the first part “Well regulated has/had nothing to do with being regulated by Govt. It’s means a well readied, well drilled, well armed, and well oiled Militia. It’s wrong to have an amendment that is meant for the people to use against tyranny being regulated by the same entity that your going against because of tyranny.
Thirdly all individuals are the militia so BS to them.
The forefathers didn’t’ want a long standing army so they made it to be that individuals would be that entity. Obviously with bastardized interpretations our experiment of self governance has failed. It’s Gaven away to a ugly despotic democratic POS Oligarchy combination like Iron and clay mixed of Daniels Prophetic vision. and Daniel 2 vs 44 has to happen.
they also didn’t want a police force separate from the rest of the
people (the militia shall execute the law). now there is an armed
force being (basically badged gangbangers) attacking people
just because they can.
