Re: The Second Amendment---Broken down
We have all been so brain washed that we are a democracy, we have become to believe it. The word democracy is not even in the Constitution. Today we are nothing but a mess. When the Constitution was drafted it was done with the intent of the states having certain rights and the people having certain rights separate and apart from the states. The states, up until 1913, sent their Representatives (senators) to congress and NOT by a popular vote of the people. The Tenth Amendment makes it clear. "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people." Meaning "state rights" and "people rights". The second amendment give the states the right to a militia and it not only gives the people the right to keep but also to bear arms and those rights shall not be infringed. In my opinion the founding fathers also knew that arms may be improved through technology and as such I don't think it was in their thinking that the people's arms would or could be limited to only be a flintlock. Do you think congress would be doing what they are doing to us if several of us had a few F18 instead a few million semi auto guns. While that may sound crazy what does the 60 trillion dollars in debt those bastards in congress have left our posterity to deal with sound like.
