“The Articles enumerated within the Constitution’s Bill of Rights are not conditional. 100% behind the 2nd Amendment, are you? Obviously not.”

Read the Suspension Clause of the Constitution (Article One, Section 9, clause 2) which states “ The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it.

I am behind the Costitution 100%, Then again, I understand most of.

In law school, are you? Nice stretch, but writ of habeas corpus has nothing to do with the 2nd Amendment. You're attempting to equate judicial procedure with a constitutional right.
Habeas Corpus Lat. "you have the body" Prisoners often seek release by filing a petition for a writ of habeas corpus. A writ of habeas corpus is a judicial mandate to a prison official ordering that an inmate be brought to the court so it can be determined whether or not that person is imprisoned lawfully and whether or not he should be released from custody. A habeas corpus petition is a petition filed with a court by a person who objects to his own or another's detention or imprisonment. The petition must show that the court ordering the detention or imprisonment made a legal or factual error. Habeas corpus petitions are usually filed by persons serving prison sentences. In family law, a parent who has been denied custody of his child by a trial court may file a habeas corpus petition. Also, a party may file a habeas corpus petition if a judge declares her in contempt of court and jails or threatens to jail her.
