Mandatory gun ownership

People ask me about this one and I usually just don’t push the issue. But, yeah, the .gov can make you own a gun. Don’t like it but it is the law.

    Do the same exact thing they plan to do if you don’t buy health insurance, levy a tax.

    Want to enjoy the domestic tranquility without supporting the common defense? No problem, I’m a tolerant guy. The firefighters, search and rescue, and first responders all need volunteers. If that’s not your cup of tea, a kilobuck a year does not sound out of place.

    (And I don’t wanna hear any whiners that also supported the constitutionality of obamacare.)

    First they have to activate the militia.

    THAT won’t happen.

    Organized and armed citizens are too hard to control.

    “To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;”

    Congress gets to arm the militia by requiring the militia to buy guns. They passed that in 1792 so it’s really hard to argue that the first congress didn’t understand the militia clause. The don’t have to “employ” or “activate” them to exercise this enumerated power.
