The right to arm bears...

One of my favorites is when people argue that the founders of our nation didn't intend such and such, which always happens to coincide with the desires of the arguer to impose their will on others.

I need to find some better quotes about religion, because I've heard people argue that we're free to worship God in any christian way, but any other religion isn't what the founders intended.

Until then, here's some examples of what the founders intended regarding firearms:
"With reasonable men I will reason, with humane men I will plead, with tyrants I will show no mercy." - Thomas Jefferson

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in goverment." - Thomas Jefferson

"The beauty of the second amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it." - Thomas Jefferson

And before people go whining that Jefferson is a bad example because of whatever personal reason, we'll throw in president #1:

"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." -- George Washington

And to lighten (or darken) the mood, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy defines the Marketing Division of the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation as "a bunch of mindless jerks who'll be the first against the wall when the revolution comes."

So, who's our modern day Sirius Cybernetics Corp? Napolitano?

And remember, a robot is "Your plastic pal who's fun to be with."
