Canadians, progressives, liberals, and statists listen up. I'll explain this once. After this you may only expect my replies to include the most dismissive hand gesture that I can think of at the time of its reading.
The 2nd Amendment:
A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.
The intent of the 2nd Amendment is not a matter of my opinion or yours. It is chronicled quite nicely in the writings of the founding fathers as they attempted to give evidence for the need of a constitution. Its intent is clear and to confuse it is merely a function of attempting to change its meaning to fit your own sensibilities.
The amendment states an intent to preserve (not grant) the pre-existing right of "the people" to keep and bear arms. The word "people" was used in the Bill of Rights as a careful way to exclude slaves as the word "persons" was too inclusive. We have thankfully cleared that up through additional amendments to our founding document. Look at the other amendments and ask yourself if the Fourth amendments "...right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and affects against unreasonable searches and seizures..." is a right for a people group or a right of an individual citizen. Could this be more clear?
The militia element of the amendment is an attempt to state purpose. You'll find this pattern throughout the Bill of Rights. They state individual rights and describe their collective purpose. None of these rights are meant to be collective or restricted to a people group. There is not a single sentence of writing by the founding fathers throughout history (Including the Federalist Papers) that states that membership in an active militia is a requirement for keeping and bearing arms.
The 2nd Amendment is not a guarantee of the right to hunt. This amendment has one purpose: It is the intention of the federal government to preserve nature's right to protect life, liberty and property from anyone who would presume to take it.
So there you have it. History sides with me, the Constitution sides with me, the founding father's own writings side with me and to believe you I must consider them all wrong and you alone correct.
I won't charge you for this lesson.
