Colorado Billboard Sparks Debate

In Greeley Colorado a pro-gun group put up the following billboard which has sparked some controversy. Full article: Pro-gun billboard featuring Native Americans draws ire - CNN.com

What does everyone think of this? This is NOT intended to be a gun control question but rather a conversation on the content of the billboard.

Yes it is. The point isn't necessarily gun control debate but rather the issue of using Native Americans or any other race to advertise for particular issue.

Unless folks are selective reading, only if you're part of a "well regulated militia."

(Sum? Not really.)

Ownership is -- correctly -- limited in any ways and, obviously, should be more so.

At the very least it acknowledges the plight of NDNs and puts it in the face of the mindless masses to chew on.

So, I have to ask: what plight?

Zeke, Zeke, Zeke... We've been over this. SCOTUS ruled in District Of Columbia v. Heller that:

Quote:
(1) The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. Pp. 2–53.

(a) The Amendment’s prefatory clause announces a purpose, but does not limit or expand the scope of the second part, the operative clause. The operative clause’s text and history demonstrate that it connotes an individual right to keep and bear arms. Pp. 2–22.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Distri...eller#Decision
In sum individuals in this country who are perceived to be of sound mind and who have not committed felonies or drug related offenses are free to own firearms within the confines of the law. Those being we are allowed to own pistols and long guns, including semi-automatic hunting or sporting rifles and shotguns provided the barrel is at a minimum 18 inches long. Also fully automatic machine guns and rifles may be owned by certain individuals who have lots of money to afford the high cost of the license and tax stamp.

I believe in this context he is referring to the historical plight.

Wounded Knee Massacre happened because troopers tried to forcibly disarm the Natives.

Which is continuously being re-defined.

Sum?

It's not a universal.

Merely factual.
