Text History & Tradition
vs.
Strict Scrutiny

do we look at “what is done” or “what WAS law in the old days” often even “what was law BEFORE the USA”?

or DO we look at the strict letter of the law?

these are two very different ways to address or debate a legal issue

Product Safety – Gun Prohibitionists think all guns should be safe for kids at all times – they suggest guns are the only item not required to have limits on un-necessary safety devices

Gun Prohibitionists suggest our low crime is not a legitimate reason to own guns, but our low crime is still a reason to remove guns from law abiding

Gun Prohibitionists say the AR15 & M16 are similar, we argue..

Instead argue the validity of their objections, their facts are wack, but listened to by their side

A right not to get shot

“not in a vacuum”

gun violence epidemic

we do not feel safe – why? the number of guns? or the unwarented hype?

common sense solutions

extreme reading of the constitution that allows “deadly things”

Defense vs Offence – Police & Military define the AR15 s defensive firearm

For decades, NRA members had the exclusive privilege of purchasing surplus army rifles at half-price. More than a million weapons, such as Springfield rifles and M1 carbines, were sold in this way, and thousands of folks joined the organization to get the deal.  the practice did not end until 1979, when the National Coalition to Ban Handguns won a lawsuit to stop it
