A “debate”? Brandishing a weapon in a public place for no apparent reason is a “Second Amendment debate”?

To keep and BEAR arms.

Yes, so let us look at what that meant to the founders.

My recollection is that bearing arms meant, to the founders, carrying them when and if there is a reason to bring them out into a public place. The founders didn’t foolishly carry arms into a place where they weren’t normally needed...unless they were expecting trouble from the redcoats.

Am I off base in that recollection?
