the 2nd Amendment DOES NOT GRANT anything. It's simply stating a fact, "the right of the people to keep and bear arms" shall NOT be infringed.
The militia statement is NOT a prerequisite. It's the other way around. The people have a right, NOT A PRIVILEGE, to keep and bear arms, and they may if they CHOOSE to form Militia's with people gathered who BEAR ARMS by RIGHT!!!
The Bill of rights actually has a preamble, and here it is!!! It's never discussed and that's by design!!!
Here's the Preamble to the Bill of Rights:
"THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution."
when you read the Preamble to the Bill of Rights, it clearly says: that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added
Do u know that this is CLEARLY saying, what follows are facts, not grants of rights.
I have a right to breath.
I have a right to live.
I have a right to speak freely.
I have the right to keep and bear arms
ETC, ETC, ETC.....
Repeal the 2nd amendment all you want, I STILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS
While you are at it, Repeal in all geology books that the earth is a sphere. Im sure that will make it flat again!!!
Love Liberty, be Vigilant
"Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty" (2 Corinthians 3:17)
Faith in God will prevail all things!
