Yes, the government is made up of the people and should work for the people. The Federal gov't is limited on what it can and can't regulate by the constitution, however, the states can create their own laws that regulate on top of the federal gov't laws as long as they don't infringe on the bare minimum standards the fed. gov't sets. Historically, the US Supreme court decides the minimum standards through court cases. Yes it is within the state government's power to make people buy a gun after they turn 21 just the same as they make you buy car insurance to drive. However, I don't agree with it.

They are not mandating that everyone have vehicle insurance, just those who choose to buy vehicles.

Sorry I should have asked that more in the form of a question, I was wondering if you believe the states had the right to restrict arms more than the federal government. I wasn't trying to be a smart ass or condescending.

No worries, I didn't take it that way at all.

Sounds like the two people in South Dakota that don't own a gun might have to go buy one.

I'm 100% against this. Tyranny in any form is still tyranny.

The government can make me buy a gun after they pry the one (or two) I already own from my cold dead hands. What if they say you have to buy a Glock?

Perhaps if the government offered to GIVE you one...but that's neither here nor there.

I agree with the general sentiment. Its not right to make the people buy anything. If they really wanted every single person who can own a gun owning a gun then they should consider making it more favorable. 50% tax deductible for example. Pay for basic firearms training as a tax deduction as well.

I could go on and on but what the government doesn't understand is that you will get more bee's with honey than vinegar.

I think the government believes (with some reason) that you get more bees with parathion than either honey or vinegar.

It is within the authority of the states to form and regulate a militia. If SD decides to require every able bodied man 21 years or older who is free of a criminal record to hold arms for the defense of himself and the state of SD, they are constitutionally authorized to do so under the 10th amendment and the 2nd. There may be other language, I don't have a constitution in front of me.
Unlike the fed who requires every man 18 years of age to register with selective service or the new obummercare legislation. those powers are not granted to the fed gubmint even under the emergency powers or the war powers clauses. Suck it D.C.
