What is a gun nutter? And yes, the constitution says we may arm ourselves with whatever firearm we want .  Would you like to rewrite the constitution? To bend it to fit YOUR feelings ?  fuck your

sad Scout doesn't understand the 2nd Amendment... the bitch doesn't realize that without the 2nd you don't have the 1st.

Once again you prove you are utterly ignorant of what "well regulated" means.

Idiots buy stuff just because it makes them feel good about it.  Most serious gun owners have enough ammo to last their lifetimes and most of their kids' lifetimes too. It's all stacked up next to the toilet paper.

 

Sittin' on the john - is a poor time to need more TP.

You seem to be a large font ignoramus.

 

But even a blind squirrel gets lucky on occasion.

 

So I will patiently wait for an actual fact or truth from you.

 

As you will not recognize it, will be sure to point it out.

And, neither of them has the 2nd Amendment.  I'm sure those Arab Israelis are glad Israel has a well regulated militia of the government and not of the people!

The meaning of the phrase "well-regulated" in the 2nd amendment

 

The following are taken from the Oxford English Dictionary, and bracket in time the writing of the 2nd amendment:

1709: "If a liberal Education has formed in us well-regulated Appetites and worthy Inclinations."

1714: "The practice of all well-regulated courts of justice in the world."

1812: "The equation of time ... is the adjustment of the difference of time as shown by a well-regulated clock and a true sun dial."

1848: "A remissness for which I am sure every well-regulated person will blame the Mayor."

1862: "It appeared to her well-regulated mind, like a clandestine proceeding."

1894: "The newspaper, a never wanting adjunct to every well-regulated American embryo city."

The phrase "well-regulated" was in common use long before 1789, and remained so for a century thereafter. It referred to the property of something being in proper working order. Something that was well-regulated was calibrated correctly, functioning as expected. Establishing government oversight of the people's arms was not only not the intent in using the phrase in the 2nd amendment, it was precisely to render the government powerless to do so that the founders wrote it.

You're welcome!

 

(I just hate it when that happens!)

 

It's ok.

 

As both Firearms and the Constitution are apparently far too complicated and confusing for then?

 

...We just give them something simple, that they understand and relate to, to play with.

I've slowed down, slower reaction time, so the 03 Springfield. Don't want a Garand Thumb. 

 

"Garand Thumb - is from closing the bolt on an empty magazine, like during inspection or cleaning.

 

Never happens on a loaded rifle.

 

... too much friction from the top round.

 

Lots of times you even need to bump the op-rod to get it to go.

 

All part of bein' a well regulated militia.

Actually, I have to laugh at this one.

 

My ex-wife had an uncle who served in both World War II and Korea, and he heard a lot about "Garand Thumb."  He wondered what kind of idiot would do that to themselves, or even HOW they could do it to themselves, believing exactly as you note above.  He'd ALWAYS had to slap his M1's charging handle to chamber the first round after inserting the clip into the magazine.

 

Fast forward to a number of years later, and he's married and settling down, and he goes into the local hardware store and LO!  There is a M-1 Garand just like he'd served with in the military.

 

"Hey!" he thought to himself, "I should buy that!  I know that gun inside and out!"  So, he buys it, takes it home and gives it a thorough cleaning, then goes to load it.  He shoves the loaded clip into the magazine - CLACK! - the bolt closes on his thumb!

 

I actually had a M1 where you had to use the heel of your hand to hold the charging handle back when inserting the clip  The instant you pulled your hand out of the way, the weapon would chamber.  MOST M1s I've handled do exactly as you describe... but there ARE those that will release the bolt the instant the clip locks in the mag.
