Great post. Thanks.
The Second Amendment is the defining statement of the United States of America regarding the fundamental relationship that exists between the country’s citizens and those they choose to govern them.
There's a good reason 'the right to keep and bear arms' was second only to 'freedom of speech and religion' when the founders framed the Bill of Rights. I mean, it sure wasn't the Fifth, Eight, or Tenth Amendment. It was not an afterthought. It was that important to the founders.
