What the Second Amendment REALLY Means.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Catch that? “Militia” refers to the state-regulated slave patrols in the southern states, which dated back to the mid 1700s. For just one example: In Georgia, all plantation owners and/or their white male employees were required to be members of the Georgia Militia, which made monthly inspections of all slaves' quarters throughout the state, with the purpose of ferreting out any possible escapes or uprisings that them uppity slaves might be planning.
Here are some more links.
All righty then.

What’s the Difference between the Koch Brothers and the NAACP?
Is this some sort of trick question? Wait, don’t tell me: uhh…the Koch Brothers were a couple of brave civil rights protesters who were repeatedly beaten, clubbed, shot at, and attacked with fire hoses and police dogs in their tireless fight for civil rights during the 1950s and ‘60s. The NAACP is a small shadowy group of billionaires who purchase elections — entire legislatures, for that matter — through anonymous multi-million-dollar contributions to phony “charity” groups that aren’t required to disclose their donors.
Did I get it???
The Koch Brothers — and other secret billionaires who want to keep operating and controlling Congress without having to identify themselves — are falling back on a 1958 Supreme Court ruling, NAACP v. Alabama. NAACP v. Alabama was the ruling which allowed the NAACP to keep its membership list secret. Because of, you know, lynching, firebombing, shooting and every other imaginable punishment of any Nigra who just might be gettin’ a little too uppity.
A lawyer for Koch Industries claims that there have been Twitter threats against the Koch brothers. ooooohhhhh!!!!!
So far, this NAACP/Koch Brothers comparison has been upheld by a U.S. District Court judge, who stated:
[Americans For Prosperity and its employees and supporters] “face public threats, harassment, intimidation and retaliation once their support for and affiliation with the organization becomes publicly known. And although the Attorney General correctly points out that such abuses are not as violent or pervasive as those encountered in NAACP v. Alabama or other cases from that era, [gee, ya think?!?] this court is not prepared to wait until an AFP opponent carries out one of the numerous death threats made against its members.”
This ruling has been appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit where, hopefully, logic and sanity will prevail.
