Are you mixing apples and peaches?... As free individuals in a Constitutional Republic, we have the right to defend our families and selves from criminal elements. As free sovereigns of the same Constitutional Republic we have the Constitutionally mandated right to keep and bear arms, uninfringed in that regard (including cannons ... private owners is where the citizen militia got the first ones for fighting the British), inorder to oust tyrants like little barry bastard boy commie and his democrips when they violate OUR CONSTITUTION and try to abort our sovereignty.
You just rested what I said.
The right is not constitutionally mandated. Recognized by the Constitution, yes. That it is not to be infringed upon is mandated. The right itself comes from elsewhere.
