At the risk of getting too far off the subject...I would only respond as follows:

"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."

This is one sentence, not two. And if by "militia" they mean civilians, not servicemenbers, then why would they need to be "well regulated"?

And for that matter, who'd be regulating them? The NRA?

Then again maybe I didn't pay enough attention in English class...

Let's keep politics of these forums please.
Yes, it's all in one sentence, but there are two distinct clauses, each could be a sentence alone.
The difference between a well regulated militia or not, is one is a posse lead by the sheriff, the other is a lynch mob.

Alex, I am disappointed in you. You did not keep your promise not to post. Or was there two clauses in that sentence?

If you did, you'd find that the founding fathers intended only those with the cojones to fight for their country to carry weapons. So if you like I can introduce you to my reserve recruiter. I hear they raised the enlistment age so you'd probably get in. Just watch out for the landing when you get shipped downrange.
I am not going to allow you to drag me into a battle over the 2nd Amendment with your gratuitous insults. As Ron said - this is a cruise forum and not one for political junk.

By the way - I spent 10 years on active duty - 4 in the Marines and 6 in the Navy. Therefore I do not need your snide little comments about my joining the reserves either. Perhaps you'd like to make fun of my other memberships. Let's see....I am a founding member of Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 511. I am a life member of VFW Post 4765, and a past post commander. And I also belong to the American Legion. Care to ridicule these organizations too?

And as for calling me "comrad" - I assume you meant "comrade" in a communist sense. This is quite offensive to me. I am here to preserve order in this forum, and that means that members cannot run around here doing whatever they please. Sometimes I have to make a decision on what is okay and what isn't. And that is just the way it is. As I was once told by a grizzled old Master Sergeant - "you fail to understand, this is not a democracy". And those words hold true for this forum.

And since this thread has been hijacked and veered from the original question, I will now close it.

Chef Ken,

usually a thread that has been closed by a fellow administrator will not be reopened, but I will have to temporarily do so to add a reply to your above accusations:

1.) I have repeatedly removed postings calling for boykotts and I will continue to do so.

2.) I have not been able to react to this whole matter earlier because I spent the last ten days (March 17th - March 27th) in hospital.

So, if you would like to present me with more accusations, please do so privately.

- closed again -
