History Books are Redefining the Second Amendment.
DranoshGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
1. Individual right
2. States right protecting its right to arm a militia…?.
3. Individual right
4. Individual right
5. Individual right
6. Individual right
7. Individual right
8. Individual right
9. This isn’t all of the rights individuals have
10. No seriously, Powers not delegated to the United States are held by the States or the Individual.
There’s a reason certain ideologies of people hate the 2nd amendment, the goal is the alienate the idea that the Consent of the governed is where power comes from.
It’s also why I can’t stand zero tolerance policies of schools, it punishes the bully, the bullied, and anyone that helped defend the bullied. It’s what would happen if we didn’t have castle doctrine/SYG, someone is trying to rape you, you shoot and suddenly you go to jail. The entire concept is to remove any power you have to defend yourself or someone else and forces you to rely on the State to save the day.

Oh shit. This shit is even *on the exam???*
FictionalNameWasTakeGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
Edit Alright this is from 2013 in Texas I found an awful article from the Atlantic about it. Its a google amp link, not sure how to change it.
mcmanybucksGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
Take it up with the publisher..
Fairly certain misrepresenting or editing laws in educational works is illegal.. or at least it ought to be.
royal_blyatGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
#Ding dong your book is W R O N G
awonderwolfGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
the worst fucking part is, the supreme court has already determined that 2a protects individual rights, not collective rights. theyve already negated the whole “in a militia” bullshit as militia was just the term back then for ANYONE who was of fighting age.
EarlyMarksmanGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
I love the government.
weirdlookingGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
What is the name of the history book and the publisher?
76before84GuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
How hard is it to copy and paste the actual bill of rights word for word????
zipperkillerGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
I’ve gotta order some pocket constitutions before those get changed too
KappaMcTIpGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
US vs heller btfos all anti 2a arguments. it’s an individual right (like every other right…) you don’t need to be in a militia. ‘well-regulated’ refers to the militia (which you don’t have to be a part of) and is no justification to infringe
MarcusAurelius0GuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
This isnt a history book, its a study prep for an AP exam.
This image is also like 5+ years old at this point.
DefendWaifuWithRaifuGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
I also had a history professor say the same thing, even though SC says otherwise
Spank-da-monkeyGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
That’s unbelievable given the SC has actually ruled against the state militia verbiage being “sole”
NoChannel1GuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
This is how it starts…
Sure_you_betchaGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
This shits common as fuck in history books. The education system is designed to do two things make you useful to the government as a tax slave and lie to you about the facts.
Ol_Dirty_MakalovGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
The supreme court already decided it was an individual right.
ThinkingThingsHurtsGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
Looks like they will fail their Advanced placement exam , because that is wrong.
EliteSuunGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
Ok what the actual fuck this is bullshit?
EYEMNOBODYGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
What prep book is that? That’s very disturbing.
ratatineGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
Look at the others. That’s a shit book.
Bl00dyDruidGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
This should be illegal

PsyqloneGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
It’s not about the right of the militia. It specifies the right of the *people*. When the Constitution was first proposed, several objections were made to its provisions. Among the most forceful arguments of these people who opposed the Constitution was the absence of a Bill of Rights.
One area of importance was the power that the Federal government had over the state militias in Article I, Sec. 8. Patrick Henry, a leading opponent to the Constitution believed that the power to arm the militia necessarily implied the converse… the power to “disarm” the militia. George Mason was also concerned with this problem, specifically the ability of the feds to “federalize” the militia and send it out of state. *”How then will our militia be armed?”*
The right to keep and bear arms is inclusive of all arms that can (or could) be utilized by the militia. The protection extends to, and includes privately owned arms which may be necessary for the *continuation* of the militia… it protects the future viability of the militia by insuring a *source* from which the militia may obtain arms, to wit: privately owned arms.
The militias of the day relied upon recruits providing their own weapons, and not just guns. Individuals would be called to serve in the militia and were expected to bring weapons with them so as to create a “well regulated” militia. Thus, if the government could disarm individual citizens, the source of weapons available to form a militia would be lost. To prevent that, and other complications, the guarantee of the 2nd Amendment was made.
This was not merely to protect “militia arms”, but to protect the *source* of militia arms, specifically firearms and other equipment owned by individual citizens. That inevitably means that the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right.
ThatOrdinaryGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
That’s some horribly blatant inexcusable fucking bullshit
neosharkeyGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
Why do you think they stopped teaching cursive writing in school?
Can’t have some curious kid look up the actual Constitution and be able to read what it says.
Bober_FettGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
Book publishers get free helicopter rides too.
BlyatnijGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
At my high school, the AP US history textbook said that the 2nd amendment was an “archaic law made for old muskets but not new, highly destructive firearms”.
WhiteWormGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
The right of the people to keep and beat arms shall not be infringed.
elwouldsGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
Dude, the butchered the whole bill of “rights”. 3rd dropped off the caveat of “unless prescribed by law”. Not a big fan of, “No quartering, unless we change our minds”.
snuffy_bodaciousGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
The Supreme Court and at least 100 million Americans strongly disagree with this historical assessment.
Brayden3_11GuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
How did they get that from “A well regulated Malitia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”?
KlizzausGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
Wouldn’t it have been easier to just print the amendments as written? It’s not like they’re terribly long. Then they could have explained them away, but that wouldn’t fit the narrative. Can’t risk letting the actual definitions get in the way of progress.
pancakeman157GuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
They’ve got the Third wrong too. Quartering without consent of the owner is not to be done during war either.
wolfeman2120GuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
Right lets just replace those old english words with “new” english words. Cuz were too dumb to read a fucking dictionary. This is how they twist shit.
Edit: WTF this is for AP Placement prep course. Get the fuck outta here. If they can’t read the original text they dont deserve to pass.
Data-McBitsGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
The militia is every able-bodied person and not a function of “a state”. If you’re going to mention the militia context of the 2A you can’t leave that part out. This page is chock full of leftist fuckery though.

AppleSeedEnigmaGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
The first isn’t right either. It stops the establishment of a religion by the government. The “separation of church and state” was established by court decisions. What the hell book is this?
AlphaTangoFoxtrtGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
Who controls the past, controls the future.
Who controls the present, controls the past.
PeacefulPacifistGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
Remember just a few decades ago children were generally patriotic until the textbooks started making America seem like the bad guys, especially in it’s early history.
They’re playing the long game, they expect in 20 years they might be able to ban guns if the grown-ups at the time have a different interpretation of the second amendment.
HKisLifeGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
I believe this is a Texas sponsored text book. A lot of states buy the textbooks TX uses. I believe around 28 states do. Might have changed since last I spoke to a teacher about it. But this made a big hoopla when it came out. They also limited talk about Thomas Jefferson in the book as well.
azwethinkweizmGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
I’m not a big fan of the Confederate statues that are around the Dallas area but one argument for their removal that I flat out reject is: if you want to look at history, go to a library. Well now we have books that are misleading people about the second amendment. What else will they lie about? Maybe they’ll lie about the civil war too. Maybe they’ll lie about free speech.
It’s a war against truth. Very disturbing.
TheViewer540GuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
The point of a militia is that it *isn’t* a state organization, the fuck?
morallybankrupt1GuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
Man, if only the framers had penned the 2nd A with the first phrasing of the first.
” Congress shall make no laws that infringe on the rights of citizens to…….”
WhatMixedFeelingsGuestDecember 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm
“State militia” LOL
