The US Supreme Court: "The right to bear arms is not granted by the Constitution"Submitted by Brian Middleton on Thu, 05/23/2013 - 03:10
This is pretty explosive language form the Supreme COurt of the United States.
"The right to bear arms is not granted by the Constitution; neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence. The Second Amendments means no more than that it shall not be infringed by Congress, and has no other effect than to restrict the powers of the National Government."
See United States v. Cruikshank, 92 U.S. 542 (1876)
That that means is, what I always tell people, that the Constitution does NOT give you any rights. It protects them. Give that case to anyone who talks about limited rights to citizens.
