(Mega 949)   From what I can gather, illegal immigrants are suing because they can't have guns, and it's making women cry. (bonus: Derptastic reader comments)   (mega949.com) divider line 415

"If we were to allow illegal immigrants to become armed then the thousands of Americans who would be killed each year would increase in scope," says Gheen.

Check it out. Anti-illegal immigration people are pro gun grabbing.

Listen, I've been told by countless Fark Rights Advocates that owning a gun is a basic right like free speech and anyone who tries to take it away is a fascist. So just as the government take away the right to free speech from illegal immigrants, clearly they can't take away the right to own a gun.

Who does the part about a "well regulated militia" cover?
 
2012-05-10 02:32:28 PM  
Yeah, I think the only reason they're pro-gun is because they fear the brown people, the gays, and socialists. Pretty sure the Ted Nugent-wannabes wouldn't give a shiat if the Mexicans and queers had their abilities to buy guns and/or vote taken away.
 
2012-05-10 02:32:50 PM

It covers "The People". There is some disagreement over whether "The People" includes illegal immigrants, but it certainly *DOES* cover legal immigrants.

CruJones: Pretty sure the second amendment only covers citizens.


"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."

Nope, nothing about being a citizen in there. Which makes sense because at the time not everyone owned land, therefore were ineligible for citizenship.

What rationale justifies treating individuals who are present in the United States illegally as though they are criminals?

Just like due process and those other amendments!

Like the right to assembly, the right to bear arms is not limited to citizens.
 
2012-05-10 02:33:55 PM  
WTF?

Not actually a 2A issue in the first place. Ownership requirements are set down in GCA 1968 and have nothing to do with the Constitution.
 
2012-05-10 02:35:05 PM  
Um, some of the requirements for the license/permit sort of require you to be a citizen (have a valid license...get a background check and fingerprinted etc.) I don't understand the question. Are the illegal immigrants wanting to bypass the laws because they don't have the appropriate documentation due to their previous crime of illegally immigrating?
 
2012-05-10 02:35:30 PM  
"If we were to allow illegal immigrants to become armed then the thousands of Americans who would be killed each year would increase in scope," says Gheen.

Based on what, exactly?
 
2012-05-10 02:35:36 PM  

CruJones: Pretty sure the second amendment only covers citizens.


No - voting is an example of a right limited to citizens. Speech and arms are examples of rights guaranteed to all.
 
2012-05-10 02:35:56 PM  

CruJones: Pretty sure the second amendment only covers citizens.


In theory, the Bill of Rights describes what the federal government cannot do. Citizenship status shouldn't have anything to do with it. The government can't quarter troops in your home; doesn't matter if your ancestors came over on the Mayflower or if you got here last week on a green card.
 
2012-05-10 02:36:15 PM  
All joking aside. How do illegals intend to legally acquire a gun to begin with? In order to purchase one you have to be run through the system, which requires a social security number, and pass a background check. They wouldn't show up in the system, ergo they would be denied ownership immediately.

The only way for them to acquire a weapon is with bogus information(illegal), or through a private sale(sometimes illegal, grey area depending on the state).

So no matter what, illegal entrance into the country aside, they're violating the law anyway.

illegal alien = felony in progress

felon in possession of a firearm = bad

The people refers to those being governed. Citizens are not the only individuals being governed.

I thought you only needed that for hand-guns?
 
2012-05-10 02:38:50 PM  
They can have all the guns they want when they go home. The last thing we need is a bunch of people running around with guns that have no accountability. If you want the same right to bear arms then come here legally, do your due diligence and become a citizen or at the very least a legal resident and you can do whatever you want. Until then stay home.

The people. Any of the people. All of the people. The are *rights*, not privileges. They are imbued in *all* people. Humanity.

Varies from state to state. I know here, in Idaho, every time I've bought a rifle or shotgun they make a quick phone call to an FBI hotline, give them my information, and then hand me my weapon after the FBI says it's all good. Handguns have a waiting period, and I think a more thorough background check.

Again it depends on the state.

Upon what occasion did you last purchase a long gun?

Same rational when you find someone in your home illegally. It is a crime.

liam76: Who do you think "the people" refers to in the second?


Read the Constitution. When something is guaranteed to everyone (such as protection from unlawful search and seizure, etc), the protected party is The People. When something is limited to the citizenry, the party is a "Citizen."

Take a gander at these sentences to see the difference. See how it differentiates between Person and Citizen?

"No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States."

Babwa Wawa: Like the right to assembly, the right to bear arms is not limited to citizens.


Good, then you can inform the supreme court and they can rule to take down those inside the US border checkpoints that deny non-citizens 4th and 5th amendment protections.

This is my question. Finally, another rational thinking person on here. If they don't have a license and there's no background info at all, how do you know its ok to sell them a gun?

2012-05-10 02:42:16 PM  
It's funny how some people think the same Constitution that is here to protect citizens from their government also exists to punish people who aren't citizens. Same with any tool, really. You can hand someone a tire iron and he'll see a way to take the bolts off a rim, but the next guy sees a way to cave in a skull. This is why we can't have nice things, and why TSA can invade your ass over a bottle of mouthwash.
 
2012-05-10 02:43:07 PM  
Not a constitutional scholar but doesn't "the People" the constitution refers to is "We the people of the United States" not "We the people of the Mexico, World, etc"?
 
2012-05-10 02:43:45 PM  

lockers: liam76: Who do you think "the people" refers to in the second?

The people refers to those being governed. Citizens are not the only individuals being governed.


Is someone who broke the law to be in the country "being governed"?

Arguing an illegal alien can have guns is like arguing that a prisoner can have a gun, or better yet somoene who has an illegal weapon should be alloed to keep it. There was no legal way for him to own a handgun.

The social is optional, and it's not really a background check. There is a database of prohibited individuals. If you're not in the database, you pass the check.

ArkAngel: Republican mind snap


Sorry, but this is much more likely to be a Democrat mind fark - they want illegal aliens to be part of the country, but hate guns - so they don't know what to think about this. Republicans (who you presume don't want illegals here) would have no problem with them NOT having access to guns - no mind exploding here.
