the 2nd Amendment
The Second amendment I mean.
Here it is in it's entirity.
"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."
Nothing is said about self protection or hunting or sports shooting is there?
The right granted is to arm a Militia to protect the" state".
So why do we allow the NRA to take that one sentence and make it into " the right to do what I want when I own a gun?" AND why aren't all gun owners made to spend time in the "militia" in order to obtain the right they were given?
Can someone explain to mean the reason they claim the right and not the responsibility?
