2nd Amendment Disparities
The Constitution was created by a sovereign people to create and limit the powers of the government body that it created and vested with limited privileges defined by that document.
The second amendment to that document limiting the privileges of our government body 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.”
Let's break that down.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, shall not be infringed.
Keep in mind that this is the people limiting the privleges of government. This is the people stating:
“When necessary to secure the “liberty of a free society” the right of the people to form a well regulated militia, shall be unalienable.”
Not that the government can enlist militias of it's own for security. Not that the people can raise militias to enact communism or authoritarianism. This is for the act of the people raising a well regulated militia for the purposes of securing the liberty of a free society.
Being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
This is the people stating:
“In order to secure the liberty of a free society the right of the people to keep and bare arms shall be unalienable.”
The second amendment is just this simple. The people have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness and in that spirit the second amendment was born to limit the scope of government from encroaching on the unalienable rights of the individual.
We don't have to continue allowing our government to power grab our rights. We have the right to defend ourselves and protect our lives and our liberty no matter who we are or what we have done. The days of the fantasy belief that only the good guys carry guns has been greatly disproved and only Utopian believers of the fabled unicorn protected society can justify that theory in only their own mind. We have another option. We need representatives in Congress that can fairly and most importantly Constitutionally make these determinations when voting on such an important issue as 2nd amendment reforms that affect all of us.
