Are We All The Militia?
The Second Amendment stirs more vitriolic debate than any other amendment.
Twenty-seven words constantly battled over:
“A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
But who is the militia and is there an individual right to own guns?
Democrats support heavy restrictions. Examples of this would be Sens. Charles Schumer , Diane Feinstein and Harry Reid. Everything from magazine restrictions to outright bans of commonly used firearms is pushed. Rep. Bonnie Watson even claimed that “arms” in the Second only applies to muskets.
Are we to believe that all the amendments are this way? That freedom of speech or press only applies to a quill and ink? That the Third or Fourth Amendments only apply to log cabins? That is a very narrow-minded view of one of the greatest documents ever written.
One claim is that weapons of today could not be envisioned then.
