So freaking hypocritical.

Guys, pick a position and stick with it. Be honest about your intentions, and stand by your position. Quit being so damn wishy-washy.
Are you also amused by those who profess belief in the Constitution yet hypocritically attempt to crap on it by taking a task upon themselves that is clearly given to the SCOTUS ? Or is that freaking hypocrisy just fine and dandt?

In other words, the 2nd Amendment is actually in the Constitution whether the anti-gunners like it or not.

So when exactly is Obama going to spring his gun confiscation plan? How soon before you paranoids think the government knocks down your doors and takes your guns? Because all he's done so far is introduce some fairly benign executive orders and suggested to Congress that the Assault Weapons Ban that already existed be reinstated.

The people are arbiters of what is and what's not constitutional as we can read plain english. If the government claims to be responsible for both enforcement and interpretation of the constitution then it's a meaningless document.

As is the SCOTUS's power to decide what is Constitutional and what is not, a power NOT given to the Utah Sheriff's Association.

In case you didn't realize, you can already actually own surplus Army Howitzers, Army tanks, live firing cannons from the civil war, etc..

On Jan 22, 1973, SCOTUS legalized cold blooded murder. Are you really so confident in their ability to interpret our Constitution?

Aw, all the Feds would have to is stop all chewing tobacco from being shipped to Utah. That would end the "resistance" quick.

Osama Bin Laden said the same thing and look where he ended up. It's all fun and game until the Army shows up...
