On June 13, 2016, Michael A. Wood Jr made his 2nd appearance on Joe Rogan’s podcast

Days after the Orlando mass shooting, Joe & Michael begin their conversation by discussing what steps should be taken to curb the growing gun violence in America…

Other topics include: Prison Reform in America; the NRA & what the 2nd Amendment really means; Michael’s ‘best night as a cop’; Michael’s life-changing experiences working w/ Baltimore’s inner city social activists; Stefanie DeLuca’s ground-breaking study: ‘Why Do Some Poor Kids Thrive?‘; the continuing failure of The Drug War; and Michael’s involvement w/ Radio Revolver, a Baltimore-based, community-oriented podcast network that hopes to be an ‘umbrella for activists, educators, artists, youth, and more to have the resources to launch their message.’

Micheal will be hosting the flagship podcast, “Misconduct: The Death of Freddie Gray,” so please help support the initiative.

    Anyone saying that a militia are “[t]he whole people” are misinterpreting the definition. The definition of a militia specifies that it is only _part_ of the population.

    Because a militia is necessary for state security, the federal government will not infringe on the people’s “right” to “keep and bear arms.” Don’t justify your desire to own a gun by redefining words to fit your own fantasy.

    For all reading these comments before listening to Joe Rogan drone on with Mr Wood for nearly three hours, I want to point out something.

    I came here to look up how Mr Wood described the “keep and bear arms” clause, which he did in an . . . enlightening way . . . so when Tom says that Mr Wood left out the “keep and bear arms” part, he is lying. Or, he really doesn’t have listening skills I’m not sure which, but I’m willing to believe it’s the former as he eloquently describes his beliefs.

      sorry i just want this thread to be removed. it’s not cool to insult someone and my ‘listening skills’ remark reads like one.

    “I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”
    George Mason
    Co-author of the Second Amendment
    during Virginia’s Convention to Ratify the Constitution, 1788

    Any attempt to disregard the historical context of this amendment and what it meant to a new nation is nothing more than an emotional attempt to manipulate an idea of safety that is short sighted.

    You manipulated when quoting the 2nd amendment on JRE, by not quoting the entire short, concise, and clear amendment. The part you left out, when authoritatively clarifying its meaning was “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Who do you think the people were? They were the militia. The 2nd amendment is about never letting the government have power over the people and nothing else. It’s about being able to stand up against tyranny, while seemingly remote today, has and can happen. It has not one thing to do with safety against criminals using guns. It’s about tyranny. If you think otherwise you’re just plain wrong. For 50 years they debated the amendment and never did the idea of gun control regarding criminals ever become part of the discussion. No notes, no nothing. It’s about tyranny, and protecting a free people.

      You guys must understand that the 2nd amendment is an amendment. I take the null hypothesis that it is not beneficial to our society, so I don’t care, at all, what it says.

        “I don’t care what it says” You say that to a law you are sworn a oath to uphold? Because you already have multiple times. Once as a marine once as a police officer. This just goes to show how much moral authority you really have. Zero, zilch Nada. No wonder no police department takes you seriously. Are you going to say that when you get orders from the mayor as Police Chief? Have you thought about what you are saying? This must work really well while talking to stupid people. You were presented an argument on the 2ND amendment, your counter to said argument is 1778. Well done, no wonder you haven’t found anyone to debate you.
