This is from my other account; it's being moved here with my other controversial stamps and such"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 inrfinged."
And yes, the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right. The "free State" refered to in the bill means the citizens of
the State, both on the national and state level. Citizens need to arm themselves to protect themselves not only from criminals, but from an out-of-control government as well.
Also, I'm tired on hearing how apparently, if I own and know how to use a gun, I'm "dangerous", and how some people are "afraid" of guns. If you are apathetic towards firearms, then I really don't mind (as long as you don't try and take away my rights of course). It's just...there's nothing to fear about it. I own my own rifle, and I know personally what it's like to use it, and I have been trained to use it safely. No, it's not scary. It's merely a device I use to shoot targets with for bonding time with my dad, and (though I hope this never happens) to defend myself with if I am being attacked. Remember kiddos, fear stems from ignorance. Just because you don't understand something, it doesn't mean it's bad.Note: If you are one of those anti-gun non-Americans, I am not interested in hearing your shenanigans; this is directed to an AMERICAN document, and to be discussed with AMERICAN citizens. If this was directed at gun rights on an international level, than I would be open arms.
Other than that, I would like to hear your opinions/interpretations of the Second Amendment. Just be sure it's in a discussive manner, and not some "OH U FCKIN HICK GUNS KILL PEOPLE AND SHOUILD BE BANNED CUZ ITZ EVVVVIIIILLLLLL".
Trust me, I've heard it all
Also note I may or may not reply; I have another, more importent account to keep track of
