Link didn't work but I found a good summary article on Time.com. 

For sure, scary that it was a 5 to 4 vote, but what it may end up doing is bringing even more attention to us that own guns from those that want to take them away from us.  >:( 

The right to bear arms for the sake of a militia as stated in the 2nd ammendment essentially keeps the government at bay which was a fear of the founding fathers.  We(the people) are the militia who have the right to protect ourselves from the "State" which is the government (as well as some of the crazy meth heads that want to break into my home to steal stuff so they can buy more meth).  Once you disarm a nation you empower the government which more often than not will abuse that control.

You're exactly right ktowncamo! O0  You've got all of these "scholars" today trying to disect the 2nd Ammendment and figure out exactly what it means.  Ask anyone with a little bit of common sense and they'll tell you what it mean!  The same as you've got written above.  The Founding Fathers wanted the citizens to be protected against the government, and to make sure the government was working for them.  This is the same reason we have elections instead of appointments and birth-rights.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Well if some dufus pushes the "militia" card we can always form a nation wide GPS militia. They'll have to set the bong down for an hour and find something else to complain about. Maybe it will blow our minds.

"This year will go down in history. For the first time,
a civilised nation has full gun registration!
Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient,
and the world will follow our lead into the future!"

Goclimb:
your post leaves the impression that prior to the 3rd Reich there was no firearm registration in Germany. NOT SO. Firearms have been controlled, restricted and owners licensed in European countries for ages.

I was at work the other day and a thought came to me about writing a fictional story showing the importance of the second amendment. This story may wind up taking place in the United States, or some made up country that closely resembles the United States.

Basically, a third secretive political party gains control of the government, then suspends the second amendment. They then proceed to confiscate all civilian firearms "to make our country safer" Once there are no longer any weapons in civilian hands, the government begins taking away other rights, such as voting for representation, trial by jury, etc. The citizens are afraid to stand up for themselves because the government controlled military is the only group with guns.

Anyway, that's the line of thought that I've been working on. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. O0

You could garner some ideas from the book "1984." O0

That's a good Idea. I've never read the book, but it's about "big brother" right?
