    My rebuttal to ACLU position on 2nd amendment. I'll never give a penny to those worms.

    So...We have no rights besides the ones enumerated in the bill of rights? Did I miss the memo?

    Miller could be narrowed somewhat from the broad interpretation which the later court decision in Cases rejected.

    The Court said in Miller:

    A hammer could be useful for killing a person, but is it "in common use" at this time for that purpose? Not at all, let alone by any military.

    The Court also said:

    and:

    They were not ordered to provide themselves with some kind of weapon which might be useful. They were ordered to provide themselves with the specific weapons in common military use at the time. If it might be useful, I'd say it should be protected under the Second, but an argument could be made that the Second intended to protect only those weapons in common military use.

    That kind of thinking could lead to privately owned warships!!! :what: :eek: ;)
