First of all, there’s nothing wrong with the Second Amendment. James Madison, who wrote it, set the “right to keep and bear arms” in this context: “A well-regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free state.”

Clearly, the founding fathers were thinking Minutemen, not National Rifle Association fanatics or maniacs with AK-47 knockoffs.

Sigh...another ignoramus who thinks the "well regulated militua" clause limits gun possession to militia members.
Folks....we're losing the language!
Even lawyers have exposed this corrupt interpretation!

These people don't have a clue about the history behind the second amendment. Anyone that has read the federalist papers, or the writings of Madison and Jefferson understands the basis for the second amendment

These liberals spout their opinions as if they are based on fact when in actuality they are only their wishful thinking with no basis in reality.

There is no winning this argument with people to whom facts and history are irrelevant.

One simple review of pre-existing State Constitutional provisions on "arms" clearly shows that they were for personal protection, protection of family, home, and property, for defense of the States, and other lawful purposes.
Since murder, mayhem, robbery, and the like aren't lawful, there's no constitutional protection for using arms for these purposes, but the remainder remain.
