I do not think the 2nd amendment is a new priveledge for me or you, unless you consider 1789 to be new. But the feds, under a multitude of Presidents have left it purposely vague whether it was an individual or a militia right. Bush has cleared the air, and I am grateful. It was a ballsy thing to do, and one of the first things he did in office. Do you not recall the gnashing an wailing from the press and the left?
The Second Amendment was there long before this Bush was alive.
