The Constitution meant a militia with muskets 100 years ago, not idiots carrying bang bang toys to compensate for a small dick. America is chock full of idiots, gun toys for oversized drooling heads with three brain cells. An ant has more brain cells than them and is worth more.

He also is approaching peak irony by throwing junior high level insults instead of presenting a rational argument.
It’s amazing how completely these people can discredit themselves with just two sentences.

MLM is usually entertaining and always revealing.
Why do the anti-gun people reject logic and reason for taunts and other scatological aspersions?
Most of the time my response is to think, “whatever”.
Yes, but idiots vote, too.

Windy, this was the 70,000th comment on this blog. That’s amazing to me. Thank you and everyone who reads and comments for visiting and participating.
My thought on this is that Markie Donner doesn’t realize the irony (or outright abject stupidity) of saying any part of the Constitution only applied to technology existing 250 years ago, and he says this on a communications technology undreamed of by the Founders, and just imagined by Jules Verne one hundred years later.
In the fifties, some of the TV news people were uncertain whether the First Amendment applied to television, but as Justice Alex Kosinsky said, the courts are quite able to interpret the Constitution broadly when they want to, for a favored right, and narrowly when the right is disfavored.
I await the time when Mark Donner recognizes the inconsistency of his thought process and writes with quill pen on paper and publishes it with a hand-cranked press, broadcast via town cryer. In a just world, when the electronic media would put its figurative finger on the scale of public discourse, the people who diss the modern means of communication and other technologies would be banned, not the ones who recognize that the principles of law and human nature remain the same as technology advances.
Yeah, like that’ll ever happen.
“I await the time when Mark Donner recognizes the inconsistency of his thought process”
People like this couldn’t recognize when their shoelaces were tied together, even after falling flat on their faces. They’re that intellectually vapid.
Let’s think about this for a minute, they just got done fighting a war with a major power that got started by the major power trying to intact gun control. See the whole Lexington, Concord thing. To think that they would write an amendment that let how they would be armed in the future determined by a government is absurd. Much less the fact that the original StandIng Army and Navy was limited to the point that it was useless with an armed population to back it up. A population that they expected to have good Arms, in good working order and have the ability to use them in a Martial manor if called on. But them again given the state of education in this county you can’t expect much I guess.
As to the issue of the leftists being overwhelmingly obsessed with male genitalia it’s clear that they haven’t matured past pre-school and have no cognitive argument only adolescent feelings.
“ bang bang toys to compensate for a small dick.”
These people are obsessed with The Penis.
We buy guns and They RELATE them to Penis’s.
I would expect nothing less from The Party of Sexual DEVIANCE …Pe(D)ocrats.
That’s what I love about Markley Mondays! No matter how stupid I feel. Come Monday, I don’t feel so lonely. Hell, above average even!
We can only hope Mr. Donner stays up on his vaccines. For all our sakes.
He certainly sounds like the type to try to cross the Sierras in winter with a covered wagon. Wonder if he’s related?
As SCOTUS put it in Heller:
“Some have made the argument, bordering on the frivolous, that only those arms in existence in the 18th century are protected by the Second Amendment. We do not interpret constitutional rights that way. Just as the First Amendment protects modern forms of communications, e.g., Reno v. American Civil Liberties Union, 521 U. S. 844, 849 (1997) , and the Fourth Amendment applies to modern forms of search, e.g., Kyllo v. United States, 533 U. S. 27, 35–36 (2001) , the Second Amendment extends, prima facie,to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding.”
Since the whole decision is easily available with a just few seconds of research online, Donner displays the standard operational willful ignorance of those who won’t let facts intrude on their fantasy of reality.
The first amendment 200 years ago obviously meant a printing press .
Certainly the founders never intended to protect any technology more advanced than that. /sarc
A hand-operated, moveable type Gutenberg printing press.
What do you think the “press” word comes from, such that you have to add the descriptor “printing”? If comes from other screw presses, first used by the Romans for wine and olive oil production.
First you’d pick your letters from bins and set them in a frame (a process known as “type-setting”) clamp them down, put the frame in position in the press, ink the letters, slide in one sheet of paper, turn the handle to press the inked letters to the page, unscrew, remove the paper and hang it from a line to dry. You’d get about 3600 pages per day with this method.
Thus, we were guaranteed the freedom of speech and of (use of) the press.
You could keep your printing press in the same shed as your privately owned field cannon on its carriage. If you owned naval cannon, they were probably on your ship.
The Constitution meant free speech 100 years ago, not idiots with smartphones tweeting during furious internet porn masturbation sessions. America is chock full of idiots, twitter accounts for oversized drooling heads with three brain cells. An ant has more brain cells than them and is worth more.
I made some similar observations when this came up almost 4 years ago in another blog: https://gunfreezone.net/do-unto-others-bill-of-rights-version/#comment-79722
I like the wording from Heller. When judges call something “frivolous” they are clearly trying to be very polite and refrain from using the more accurate “moronic”.
Oh good… I guess that means we can shoot these progtards with muzzle loaders and be perfectly within our rights.
“The Constitution meant a militia with muskets 100 years ago”
23 December 1921 was just over three years after the armistice that ended The (First) War to End All Wars.
I am surprised to hear the implied assertion that the American Expeditionary Force under General “Black Jack” Pershing consisted of “militias with muskets.” Perhaps the U.S. 3rd Infantry Division should bear the nickname “Great Big Brass Balls of the Marne,” instead of its current nickname “Rock of the Marne,” for halting the German July 1918 offensive while armed with muskets.
