The writer is an idiot and trying to have it both ways parses his opinion.
The Constitution of Mexico and the USofA on the issue of 2A are not even in the same realm.
Mexico’s Constitution bars citizens from military grade arms and they are expressly prohibited from carrying them in inhabited places, subject to local law.
The 2A of America states plainly that “the People” have a right and it shall not be infringed upon.
This is the disturbing part of his screed that I couldn’t shake:
What part of shall not be infringed do you not understand? the gun-rights advocate asks. What part of a well regulated Militia do you not understand? goes the retort.
What part of “The Right of The People” did you purposely gloss over?
“Opinion polls suggest that a majority recognize a right to bear arms, subject to reasonable regulations protecting public safety”. <—— Oh yeah? Who says so?
The government cannot issue any constitutional “regulations” regarding the use and availability of firearms. The 2A is a guarantee to the people that we’ll have the means to overthrow an overweening and tyrannical government if it ever should come to that.
It means that the fox isn’t allowed to guard the henhouse. If We the People allow this then we become the chickens.
