    the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.


    The Second Amendment ain’t about being able to use guns for hunting game... and it’s not directly related to being able to protect yourself from criminals...

    Anyone who bothers to take the time to read and digest the plethora of background writings of the Framers of the Constitution and Bill of Rights should be able to understand that the Framers were mightily concerned about the potential threat to individual liberty posed by a standing federal army under the control of an overarching federal government...

    to guarantee liberty against a future out-of-control federal government, the Framers inserted the 2nd amendment to the Constitution...

    with the intention that ordinary citizens (shopkeepers, farmers, etc.) have the means to take arms to oppose an oppressive federal government...
