    The right of individuals to keep and to bear arms to defend themselves and their freedoms?

    Or, the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights?

    No they weren't. They had weapons at home and ready to go to fight if need be, they hunted.

    Get yourself a muzzle loader if you think the 2nd amendment is so relevant today.

    Gee how hard can that be, to protect themselves against the Indians, the British and French. Today we have cops and the NG.

    The right to keep and bear arms in this country wasn't until this place actually became a country.

    Yeah, people may have had weapons and such before the Constitution and Bill of Rights, but those were not a given, and they were not guaranteed.

    It wasn't until this nation became a country and the various documents that made it so, that it could give those who were citizens rights.

    What does having a muzzle loader have to do with anything?
