    The last "Being Democratic" raised issues on Freedom of Religion, which as anticipated, revealed true nature of responders exposing wolves in sheep clothing. It exhibited signs of people approving censorship and bullying people of faiths. So, here is Amendment 2, which I again anticipate the responses of several in this Hub. I just question how people profess to be Democrats, but choose to impose inhuman tactics on an otherwise a world character that desires freedom. Some of these people communicate a good game, but do not really sacrifice for the common good.

    Amendment II: "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 is imperative America has a military capable to defend our borders and interests around the world. It is imperative, as an interest, our Nation has alliances with many countries seeking similar desires in freedoms, so we engage in protection and military strengths as a whole worldly force. The countries that seek to overthrow governments we have an alliance with or threaten the peace of citizens, we will enter into a conflict situation to mitigate the threats.

    It is necessary to the security of a free State to maintain our military. It does take enormous funding and resources for todays armed forces. Funding is also extended to other Nations as allies, because their support embodies our missions around the world. America is in constant support with many countries to keep freedom and terror from exposing it's evil agenda on people living free.

    Now, the hard part...........our right to keep and bear Arms. There has been many pages of responses on this right as it may be the most misused freedom. Many have expressed that it was never the intent of our authors of this Amendment to allow free possession of military-style weapons as Arms. I have no problem with that, but it does not say that. I can believe that none of those authors could conceive that one day kill ready weapons as deadly as point and shoot quickly would dominate our gun crazy Nation. The right to keep and bear Arms seems more clear to not including cannons, automated fire and large caliber machine guns (not Arm ready weapons), but non-authority people have them.

    I believe it is necessary for America to rewrite this Amendment to update the message/regulation. This is sure to bring out the survivalist and gun crazy's in force against any rewrite to take away anybody's guns or weapons. I believe it is necessary to control the amount of bullets, which a gun may have to clock into a chamber and establish a standard gun design more people may approve of. I firmly believe that it is necessary to regulate "Who" may have a weapon and "Who" may not. I realize laws do pertain to this measure of gun ownership, but these laws are poorly enforced or have no support for authorities to enforce.

    The strongest reasons for bringing up Amendment 2 is that several on this Hub have been unfairly critical of our military. Some of you have never served, so how would you ever know about the military? Some of you have had a possibly bad experience from the military, which that does happen. It happens walking in the park with your dog and you step in some dog doo, Sxxx happens. However, you want to look at the right to maintain a well regulated Militia, it is necessary and without it, your present day of life would not be free as it is today.

    If your only tactic is to censor and offer, "Nothing" of intelligence than why do you bother to slam me? That is useless debate and provides nothing credible. LA, you need to have something other than a spoiled child reaction. The 2nd Amendment is a fact and part of our American Constitution. Is the Amendment without change, maybe, that's why our government has a process to change or rectify laws when necessary. If sufficient people rally up against the forces of the NRA, and loose the mindless chatter of fools bickering over the color of dirt, just maybe the 2nd Amendment can be changed. It is not impossible. But the several months discussing the issues on gun control, which will go nowhere until a concentrated effort from voters and the elected get serious about change for the improvement in humanity.

    Slamming anybody on this post does nothing but show bad taste and poor character. You should be more mature than what you respond with. Where's a moderator when you need them?

    Really? Who was approving censorship? Who was being inhumane?

    All that was basically said was that if you want your ideas to be credible then you need to come up with some evidence. This applies to religion and other superstitions just as much as it applies to everything thing. Ideas don't get special treatment just because someone "really, really believes" in it. That would be ridiculous.

    AMC you also keep forgetting there is freedom of speech; therefore I keep telling you that you are on the wrong track; however you never answer any reality statements I make; but you toss religion into everything like L.A. said. Thus no wonder you get the answers you don't like, but happened to be the thruth. As I said many times you are not a self thinking person, but fully indoctrinated by the army and the church like a robot.
    I suggest you look at PBS; they have serie called "Loosing Iraq" then may be you realize that this country is murderous; bombed every thing flat and killed hunreds of thousands civilians just to get it our way; if you see the horror commited by us, how could you be proud of pure murder and think "god" is blessing us for it. Shaking my old head.
