A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State… October 4, 2015

1stHalfOf2ndAmendment
The title of this blog entry shares the words the National Rifle Association of the U.S. has paid countless millions to make sure you never hear or read, and definitely never consider. These words: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State…” are the first half of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution.

The words “well regulated” give you your first clue as to why the NRA has spent its millions to misdirect you from the truth of the Second Amendment, namely that it is actually a gun control amendment. Throughout U.S. history it has served this purpose.

You, like every commentator on TV these days, may have forgotten the first half of the Second Amendment due to the NRA misdirection campaign, as nobody ever cites these words in gun control debates. They should start.

The-second-amendment is a gun control amendment

And if you think the second half of the Second Amendment is actually as clear cut as the Congress-buying NRA would like you to think it is, think again.

If you stand with President Obama and can’t stand this repetitious and totally preventable cycle of extreme violence, and if you sit appalled at the grotesque response of Republican presidential candidates (“These things happen” and “They always will”), then hopefully you will join the movement goddesses.com is launching with this post, which is this:

Remember to tell everyone with whom you discuss gun control these, our opening and concluding words, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State…”
