You can check it out if you like. It's in Article 2, Section 2, of the Constitution. You know, all those words that are wrapped around the Second Amendment.

" And why would you put your trust in judges who are elected on their political views and their stand on Roe v Wade? Especially the Supreme Court"

Don't know how to break this to you, but deferral judges, including Supreme Court Justices are not ELECTED. That's pretty clearly spelled out in that document whose every word you claim to hang on.

Hayes,

Your twisted logic falls on deaf ears, outside of those steadfast patriots that exhaust time straightening them out.

John, JOhn, John....

Your mask is falling off....the caps on your wording are becoming more pronounced.

Careful with that stroke issue you have...I'm guessing you have mutilated at least 200 keyboards since this SG forum opened.

You really are an angry and lonely man.

Hayes@ 6:50- Too much hate to cover, BUT, you don't recognize the ONE Constitution, otherwise you wouldn't agree with our President's policies. Since you personally knew McVeigh and how he thinks, you obviously don't know me. And why would you put your trust in judges who are elected on their political views and their stand on Roe v Wade? Especially the Supreme Court, who are supposed to be able to apply the Constitution to their rulings. Anybody remember John Roberts and the A.C.A. ruling? We are in trouble!

"Easy soldier, we "try" to be civil on this board. You are speaking of two separate agencies. The agency that is in question as far as the excessive ammo purchase is the Department of Homeland Security. You, my fellow service member are speaking of the Department of Defense. Now I am not into conspiracy theories, I like to deal in facts.

And here are some facts that I was able to find on several different web sites.

DHS past ammo purchases: FY 2010: 148 million rounds; FY 2011: 108 million rounds; FY 2012: 103 million rounds." - GysgtUSMC

Hayes,

""You should check yourself into a mental ward"

Given your ...........way........out..........progressiveness state of mind?????

You do this constantly and you surely know that most people on here don't take your "lack of psychiatric/psychologist assessments of another individual seriously, do you?

Once someone pokes holes in your radical thinking, you retort to degrading them. I'm certain that many individuals who may align themselves with some of your political thoughts, do not appreciate you/Sham's constant belittling and degrading commentary.

I GIVE-UP!! I GIVE-UP!!

We're (presently) arming covert-squads of polar-bears...who spend each night "monkeywrenching" as many coal-fired power-plants (as is possible), before they retire, each day, to a HUGE underground-bunker...on Whitehouse-grounds.

PLEASE don't tell WorldNutzDaily about this.

"Hayes- I have no respect for YOUR constitution."

Pardon me Zook, but there is just ONE US Constitution, that like any other legal document is open to interpretation by the reader. You see, that's part of the reason we have this amazing thing called the court system. If someone passes a law that some people think is unconstitutional, they can go to court for a decision. The court system NOT YOU, are the arbiters of what is Constitutional or not.

Hey Zook, did you know that Tim McVeigh felt the same way you do? One of the reasons he was busted so quickly was that he was getting away from the scene of his mass murder in a car that had no license plates, because he thought it was unconstitutional to make someone buy license plates.

You should check yourself into a mental ward.

As to the DHS ammo purchase story, I don't suppose it's worth mentioning that the guy that invented that conspiracy theory, also said he thinks the OK tornadoes might have been caused by "weather weapons".

"David Koresh was a mass murderer?"

Well let's see. You run a cult, and when the police show up to investigate illegal activity, you tell them them to open fire on the police, with the illegal fully automatic weapons you've been stockpiling. 4 ATF agents are murdered. Mass murderer? Yep. We don't even need to get into the children he murdered by not sending them out, OR the fact that your hero was a serial child molester.

Alsever,

There are better ways to express yourself than your current position of insulting people. Perhaps you might try it next go around.

GysgtUSMC,

You aren't being naïve' , but you've served a country that has changed. Perhaps not in the average American's heart, but the actual rules for the game players (the powers that be) are not within our scope of "intelligence." And now, the taxes and charges that are going to be levied against citizens simply exercising their 2nd Amendment right to own a firearm are outrageous. Surely, an ex military person...and I believe a lifer....would be at best doubting every move this current govt./admin makes with every ounce of red blood in your body. My husband was a lifer and he is 74 years old and just shakes his head when he sees what is happening to this country he served, with honor, I might add.

Another good letter, Gregory. Now, we'll sit back and await the spin by the progressives that you are fear mongering, racist, or otherwise being a conspirator and rebel against the govt.

John I only offered one theory. And I question that one million rounds a day at the range also. It could be that DHS feared that supply was going to be low so they over purchased in case supply was limited. Who knows? But like I said, I don't believe in conspiracy theories. I hope I'm not being naïve.

GunnySar- (acceptable?) Understand what you are saying about the "use it or lose it" rule in Y/E budgets, but this point about 1.6 billion rounds has been out there too long and still not reputed. (Not even YouTube!) Heck, you'd think the Daily Kos/Beast or Slate or Huffpo would have "cleared it up" by now. Don't know about the "million rounds a day at the range" point; will ask my older bro. He was in Small Arms Repair in Saigon. He enjoyed the range daily when not on convoy cover. And remember, we are talking about DHS, IRS, and any other agency they can arm. And again, why hollow points?

The Adulter-in-Chief may have even given her the "go-ahead" on the assault. Conspiracies...conspiracies..
