Comment: So the Constitution isn't

(See in situ)

So the Constitution isn't

the law of the land it's the contract with the citizens (or rather employees)?

Wow...we have been duped.

James Madison - what were his motives?

The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed...

In the 19th and 20th centuries, the Supreme Court ruled on several occasions that the amendment did not bar state regulation of firearms, considering the amendment to be “a limitation only upon the power of Congress and the National government and not upon that of the States.”


In 2008 and 2010, the Court issued two landmark decisions to officially establish an "individual rights" interpretation of the Second Amendment. In District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home within many longstanding prohibitions and restrictions on firearms possession listed by the Court as being consistent with the Second Amendment. In McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 3025 (2010), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment limits state and local governments to the same extent that it limits the federal government.

I see an attempt above at less government intrusion regarding the 2nd Ammendment - yet, today, we are being assaulted with just the opposite. Are they messing with our heads? I, for one, am confused.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
