Beer and Cigars

Well, that's later tonight.  Today is a bit of cleaning and cooking.  But since I'm lazy busy, here's a grand idea courtesy of CalGuns and brought to you by RSN.

A Proposed Individual Mandate for the Second Amendment

Yes, I am perfectly serious. Yes, I think there is a chance to make this really happen. No, I’m not thrilled that the government can mandate participation in an economic activity but that is where we are right now.

A Proposed Individual Mandate for the Second Amendment.

A well regulated militia being necessary for the security of a free state,

As the constitution clearly states it is within the realm of the government to ensure that our unorganized militia be we regulated (or provisioned.)

As such each able bodied person above the age of 18 is hereby mandated to purchase and keep a weapon suitable for service in the militia. The Dept. of Defense shall provide a listing of the basic type of such weapons that they currently issue to our servicemen. Any individually serviced weapon, not counting sidearms and explosives shall satisfy this mandate.

As most such weapons are regulated by the National Firearms Act and many may not currently be legally acquired by the Hughes Amendment, any such weapon shall receive a tax stamp at no cost and the Hughes Amendment is hereby repealed.

Other weapons suitable for militia service shall also be granted tax stamps at zero cost. These would include but not be limited to grenades, suppressors, appropriate sidearms, and certain other explosive material.

The purchase of one mandate qualifying militia weapon per person shall be tax deductible once every ten years. As the state must also assure that the militia is well trained any ammunition purchases up to $1000 per year shall also be tax deductible.

If anyone over the age of 18 chooses to opt out of this mandate there shall be assessed a penalty equal to the average MSRP of one standard issue infantry long arm per year that they choose to not meet this mandate.

Let's go for it.  God-Damned communists need to understand just what they've done, and how we're going to use every chance we have to ram their mistakes down their fucking throats.

Damn right.... let's get the gear issued, and off to the range for some serious work.

The problem is that the Communists are still in power, and they'll NEVER force the people to be part of the militia. They will instead tax gun ownership to the point that we give them up, or start using them as was intended in the 2A.

I truly agree with you that a well regulated militia being necessary for the security of a nation, so that people will feel secure in their own country.
