ME: Public Weighs in on Wide Range of Proposed Gun Legislation

A full day of public hearings on gun legislation at the State House Friday.

The wide range of bills include one that would prohibit the creation of a gun registry and another that would require gun locks with every sale of a firearm.

The Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee heard passionate testimony from those in support and opposition of several recently proposed bills.

“Article 1, Section 16 in the Second Amendment to the Constitution guarantees our rights to own firearms. And keeping a database on people that own those firearms only serves one purpose – to confiscate those firearms eventually,” said David Trahan, Director of the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine.

“I’m very concerned about what I’m hearing here because when I read the Second Amendment, it seems that the first part of it is always left off. I will quote, ‘a well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,” said Debra Smith of New Glouchester.

I don't know where you learned the rules of English usage and grammar, but that sentence says two things; the militia is to be well-regulated, and the right is not to be infringed.

The two are not synonymous. Regulate the militia all you want, but leave the right alone.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Americans have the right and advantage of being armed - unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. — James Madison, The Federalist Papers No. 46 at 243-244.
