    You live in the 21st Century, dude. And you're damn lucky to live in the United States.

    The civil rights, gay rights and women's movements, designed to allow others to reach for power previously grasped only by white men, have made a real difference, and the outlines of 21st century America have emerged. -- Paul West of LA Times

      If the question is "what were we declaring independence from," it makes little sense to look in the Constitution.

      If you're looking for laws, then proceed.  But that's not the question that Jay asked.

      the purpose of the second amendment is to promote a well-regulated militia, in the same sense that the purpose of the first amendment is to promote a well-informed electorate.
