So...you say you are a 'Constitutional Conservative'? Second Amendment Remedies?

Violent political rhetoric and calls to arms is not welcome.

Constitutional originalist? Were you in the room? You're a mind reader? The constitution was purposely written with some vague terminology in it...and for originalists to pick and choose which clause or phrase to omit from discussion is rather absurd. For example, the intent of the second amendment, which is clear in Article 1, Section 8 of the US constitution: 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;

That is what is meant by, “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. ”

The fear was of a professional, standing Army...which is why the funding for such an entity is only allowed for a two year period.

One standard would suit me. Ask yourself. What would the response be to a muslim website that had a map of the USA with bullseyes over congressional districts? Or to a muslim calling for targeting a representative and inviting people to come and shoot an M16 with him?
