"Keep in mind that during the last days, Bush Jr. was considering having soldiers protecting the white house."
It's not surprising the GWB was really a coward in the end. His public statements & reactions to that crisis were pitifull. He looked like a scared lil bunny to me.
"Obama has talked about a civil army.... why?"
It's not an "army" at all...just a bunch of volunteers to help out their communities.
"How old are you?"
Probably older than you kiddo.
"The media is to keep people informed and the government in check?"
Yes, the press is what's called the Fourth Estate.
"While all that are enlisted in any armed service, they are sworn to uphold and obey the Constitution of the United States"
...and to follow the lawful orders of their civilian leadership, period.
"The military should specifically spell out what constitutes a lawful order and what does not in order to keep the government in check."
That's already been done in many military manuals. "Illegal" orders should not be followed at all. All soldiers should know that by now.
"You DO NOT need a license to own a gun"
Wrong again. Fully automatic firearms of any kind (including military assault rifles) have been subject to requirements for registration by owners & licensing of dealers since the passage of the National Firearms Act in 1934. Also, AZ, CT, HI, MI, NV, NY, and NC currently all have some form of registration process for guns.
Before you happen to get all uppity about this, all of these laws are totally Constitutional:
Checkmate confirmed! :)
