What the Second Amendment Really Says

No one should ever die because someone feels entitled to pull a trigger. However, it seems that every day on the streets of Baltimore someone exercises his entitlement (if you own a gun you are entitled to operate it which includes pulling its trigger). An entitlement many say is granted by the Second Amendment. But did it really? The Second Amendment reads, A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of people to keep and bear arms should not be infringed.

This, talking head, should learn why 2A was worded the way it was. The NG is a SELECT militia, and the Militia in the 2A is the whole of able-bodied men, either 16 to 60, or 18 to 80, depending which camp was talking ! That means any one able to have and use a firearm should have one and carry it!!!!

This common liberal "group right" interpretation is just painfully wrong.
First, it creates a "logic error" called "denying the antecedent." That's the second part, the "right of the people to K&B arms shall not be infringed." That means what itr says; the first part, also an EXEMPLAR, does NOT negate the meaning in the antecedent.
Every country arms its military, even those that deny their citizens the right to have guns.
The 2A was clearly intended to protect the right OF THE PEOPLE (as THAT IS WHAT IT THAT so HARD to understand?? I guess if you are a libtard, it is).

The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword, because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops. Noah Webster, An Examination into the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution Proposed BV the Late Convention (1787).
