It doesn't say that in our First Amendment. Our Second Amendment does expressly declare what is Necessary not Optional to the security of a free State.Or in the First Amendment. There is no right to free speech unless you're part of a regulated, licensed, government approved protest group. There is no individual right to assemble with whomever you want, you only have that right as part of a licensed, regulated, government approved assembly group. You can't just go from one group to another.Nor in the 4th AmendmentOur Second Amendment is more relevant. There are no Individual or singular terms in our Second Amendment.Protected as an individual right by FedGov against States under the 14th Amendment, yes.You disagree with the 14th Amendment, Daniel? Why is that?Amendment 14.Amendment XThe SC agrees with it, so no. Look, you can regurgitate your talking points all day long, but it won't change reality. People can have guns, it's that simple.That is nothing but right wing propaganda.The people have the right to bear arms, full stop. The people, not the militia.
I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for a few public officials."
— George Mason, in Debates in Virginia Convention on
Ratification of the Constitution, Elliot, Vol. 3, June 16, 1788
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
I do not really agree with Daniel on this one, but the 14 amendment does not automatically "incorporate" all the restrictions in the bill of rights to also apply against the states, cities, or other individuals.
The courts have to individually decide to "incorporate" them.
But I believe Heller or McDonald finally accomplished that.
The right to bear arms now is a protected individual right.
The 14th Amendment is a clumsy POL in my opinion. It really screws up all else.
There is no individual right to be secure in homes, etc. from unreasonable searches and seizures?
This is why you are stupid.
