[b]-In 1876, the Supreme Court ruled that the CONSTITUTION did not grant a RIGHT to ARMS,-[/b] This is what the anti gunners repeat over and over ad nauseam. They never tell us what else the SC ruled. [b]but like the rights to assembly and petition, THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS EXISTED LONG BEFORE THE CONSTITUTION. "Neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence." (United States v. Cruikshank, 92 US 542, 543)[/b] This is one of my favorites [b]-In, 1897, the Supreme Court ruled that the right to arms is "ANCIENT" and "FUNDAMENTAL" right, a right which was "INHERITED FROM OUR ENGLISH ANCESTORS" and has existed "FROM TIME IMMEMORIAL." Robertson v. Baldwin, (165 US 275)[/b] Excerpted from GUNS magazine August 1997

Good one, Hangfire. I copied and printed it because I know an anti who has spouted this before. I will definitely show him this.
