I would personally like to see all governments disarmed, then and only then would we have world peace.
But until all goverments disarm the people have a right to bear Arms.
- It has been argued that the Second Amendment is an anachronism intended only to protect a state’s right to maintain a militia, and therefore individuals cannot claim its protection as a personal right. The Second Amendment states:
- “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.”
No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” – Thomas Jefferson
“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” -Thomas Jefferson
The 2nd Amendment was intended as a final check of government authority
The militia interpertation…that some how the National Guard constitutes a “well regulated militia” is ridiculous…any force who ultimately is completely controlled by the regular federal armed forces is in no way securing the right of the people to keep and bear arms…even if the governor can call on them to help with hurricane relief…it still in no way means that they are the kind of militia that the Founders had in mind. They the government have the advantage in strength of arms we the people have the advantage in strength of numbers.
