DC: The actual original intent of the Second Amendment

I appreciated the Nov. 17 news article “Some common ground in contentious gun debate” and fully support any bipartisan attempt at gun regulation. But we will never find consensus so long as those who defy gun control believe that the Second Amendment is on their side. This falsehood is too often reinforced by the media. Responsible reporting on the Second Amendment and gun issues should recognize the debate is over its original intent and not promote that one-sided interpretation.

Yet another libtard arguing the 2A was a collective right only intended for militia service. Like a vampire, this argument appears near impossible to kill off.

Sheeeeyeah, right.

Founder after founder after founder expressed the understanding that the right to arms was individual, and unalienable.

Whence come these lying ninnies?

I don't know what country Walter is living in, but all I see are states and localities coming to their senses, one-by-one, eliminating (or severely relaxing) gun-free zones. Some are even removing permit requirements to carry in-state, and that movement is growing along with state after state coming to embrace Stand Your Ground self-defense laws.

The vast majority of states have reciprocity of some kind.

Hell, there's even a national reciprocity bill pending in Congress.

Walter should change his name to Cassandra.

Or open his eyes.

Ignore my last: posted on wrong story.

And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms....The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. — Thomas Jefferson in a letter to William S. Smith in 1787. Taken from Jefferson, On Democracy p. 20, S. Padover ed., 1939
