Come on, 'Dude', You have got to be kidding me. try clicking the links I provided, then find and read the quotes on the Second Amendment attributed to many of the Founders.
If you are a Lawyer, that is your first mistake.
As for debates in congress, they had no need to debate the 2nd Amendment because it was so obviously needed by the people in a country, of the people, by the people, for the people.
I know this is a hard concept for you just being out of Lawyer school and all. Even rectal thermometers have degrees. But in every line of the Constitution, it is about the people. See above. Of the people, by the people, for the people. It means us simply us. How much plainer can it get?
Oh. . . I almost forgot, your a lawyer. That explains everything. For you, we probably have to define the word "it".
On another note, running away or hiding from the truth will not serve you well. Stand up, be a man, enjoin the debate here and if I were you, I don't think I would tell anybody else you went to Law school It's not a asset in the real world.
