Posted on 11/03/2013 12:54:47 PM PST by BulletBobCo
Time to cancel your subscriptions, Guns and Ammo Editor Dick Metcalf has penned an editorial for their December issue that will be leaving fans in shock; hes supporting gun control. Metcalf claims there is a large difference between regulation, (well-regulated militia) and a direct infringement of civil rights, he has made this distinction the premise of his claims.
I bring this up, he wrote, because way too many gun owners still believe that any regulation of the right to keep and bear arms is an infringement. The fact is that all Constitutional rights are regulated, always have been, and need to be. Facepalm moment anyone? Now that Metcalf is no longer in a fit mental capacity to be left alone, someone should send Adult Protective services over for a welfare check.
Many argue that any regulation at all is, by definition, an infringement. If that were true, then the authors of the Second Amendment themselves, should not have specified well-regulated.

It looks like the regime might have found some skeletons.
The militia was supposed to be subservient to the people “well-regulated” but the right of the people to keep and bear arms “shall not be infringed”.
If asking for a driver’s license infringes on someone’s right to vote, then registering guns and requiring background checks certainly infringes on someone’s 2A rights.
Well-regulated in that context means “well-trained or well-maintained” not controlled by government.
Even with the new meaning of "regulated", that the gov't is involved in the regulation precludes anything becoming "well regulated".
Never buy their mag again.....
Obviously, he doesn't understand the Bill of Rights and why they were given to us. Not by his government but by the Founding Fathers of this country. He may need to go back and take a refresher civics course.
NSA to the rescue!
“The fact is that all Constitutional rights are regulated ...”
The preamble to the Bill of Rights hold that the Bill of Rights regulate the rest of the Constitution.
Perhaps an IRS audit is in the works.
This Government under Obama and the fools he is associated with are not thinking of regulation, but confiscation.
They want the weapons so they can control us the way all regimes before have controlled the unarmed.
If this man who writes this publication cannot see that then he is a fool and no one should continue to read his tripe.
I remember reading a post a while back that pretty much all of the outdoor/gun media were being bought up by a leftie billionaire. Related?
Thanks for the heads up. I just searched the title as written. I’ll ask mods to remove this dupe.
Lots of folks are ‘acting weird’ lately.
Maybe NSA found photos of him in a compromising position.
That’s how Marxists roll.
Keep in mind folks, the USA government has been captured by Moslem Communists.
We’re in uncharted territory.
The advertisers are the real issue. These days, gun companies understand how important the second amendment is and will react swiftly.
Not going to be pretty.
Not a dupe. Just pointing out another thread of the same story by a different source.
