    There are many strong advocates of the Second Amendment here. There are also some who see every Muslim as a potential terrorist. Sometimes the two views overlap. A question to you. Should Muslims be allowed to own and carry guns in the US? If a 14 year old boy with a poorly built electronic device is enough of a threat to justify arrest what of a an adult male Muslim with a gun and a carry permit?

    I don't have a problem with the Muslim religion if that's what you choose. Heck, you can worship snakes or be into witchcraft for all I care.

    I do have a real problem with Muslims or any other group that has hatred and anti-American views, is out to harm Americans, break laws, do damage, re-write the constitution to suit themselves, etc.

    Catholics don't necessarily agree with Baptists, but they get along peacefully and don't threaten one another, call for their deaths publicly, etc.

    If you are a legal citizen religion shouldn't come into play, just go by the rules the rest of us go by.

    Any law abiding citizen should be able to keep AND bear arms.

    SCOTUS has declared that illegal aliens have the right to own guns.

    Well sure. I feel that Muslims have the same right to carry guns in schools as nonMuslims do. Exactly no right.
    This was a trolling thread.

    First of all, the Second Amendment doesn't say you have the right to bear arms whenever and wherever you want. Let's just get that straight before I answer. And yes, Muslims should live with the same laws as everyone else where they live.

    It makes one wonder the motives behind politicians who seek to disarm people, all the while going out of their way to make this country more dangerous to live in.

    Keeping and bearing arms is a right.
    The government can't legally take or infringe on a right.
    But then this government doesn't seem to care much for our laws or our Constitution.

    The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

    All other powers not denied them by the constitution shall be reserved to the states and to the people respectively.

    I said nothing about schools, though many here advocate more guns in schools, not fewer. I'll admit that it is a bit of a trolling thread but that doesn't mean thoughts can't be reasonably exchanged.

    I Posted this to show that the SCOTUS has made another crappy ruling, I certainly don't agree with it. I think Illegal's can have all the guns they want as long as they're in Mexico.

    I'm probably more pro second amendment than many here. I feel there should be as few restrictions on gun ownership and possession as possible. This includes allowing felons, at the completion of their sentence, the ability to buy and possess guns. It's a stance I've been taken to task for before. That right to keep and bear arms extends to all citizens with no religous test. But I also don't think that all Muslims are terrorists, potential terrorists or are planning some grand subjugation of our culture. I was curious about how those who do feel such a threat from Muslims that they can concoct scenarios that allow a young boy to be handcuffed and arrested for a poorly built clock can justify allowing that same threatening group to carry actual weapons.

    I do not believe that Muslims are anymore a threat than any other religious group, wacked out extremists are a different matter. Was Jim jones a Muslim. Timothy mcveigh? Can't think of his name but the wacko from Waco.. Was he a Muslim.... These guys share one thing in common with the 911terrorists... They were all wacked out extremists with an agenda replacing their conscience.
