  •  Then why ignore the actual meaning of the Second? (1+ / 0-)

    The pro gun people simply have to write off most of the amendment as having no import and then write in some words they like better.

    Not only does the entire first clause get declared non-operative, but it's just presumed that "own" is in there, as in a "right to own guns".

    Then you get crap like the SCt decision in Heller, which found a right to self defense in the home with a gun, even though there's nothing in there about homes OR self defense, even though that right is limited by reasonable regulations to keep guns out of the hands of the insane or criminal, and that too isn't in there.

    That's not even "gun control". It's more like "massacre control".
