The Second Amendment was part of the original Bill of Rights. It reads: “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.” From time immemorial, the intent of the Second Amendment has always been debated. Was this right granted to the “militia” or to the individual U.S. citizen...or someone else?
Six-time Olympic shooting medalist Kim Rhode said Monday night that new gun control measures implemented in her home state of California — and around the country — are “killing our sport at the core.”
The anti-Second Amendment freedom crowd frequently claims they want to have a national “conversation” on gun rights and gun-related crime. “OK,” most reasonable people might think. But soon they are stymied by the dilemma: How do you have even a semi-intelligent “conversation” on guns with politicians and celebrities who are so ignorant and biased on the subject, yet think they’re so much more enlightened than the rest of us?
