This right is only mysterious if you're a yankee liberal who didn't notice the Founding Fathers didn't just have a letter-writing campaign but actually shot at British soldiers once in a while as part of a guerilla struggle against a standing army of occupation. When they weren't doing that they were defending their families and their wives' honor from the depradations of savage Indians and low life criminal elements.



A collective right of the people to bear arms in defense of their state or nation implies that an individual right exists to do the same. I can't imagine how a collective might defend itself against an aggressor if it is comprised of individuals who are denied the right to bear arms. Thus, one really is not forced to choose between two readings of the 2nd Amd. The first reading, that "militia" entails the right of the people as a collective to self defense, is given meaning by the second reading, that individuals shall be allowed to keep a and bear guns.


100 years after the Declaration of Independence, Colorado became the 38th state.

In the Colorado State Constitution Article II, Section 13 states: Right to bear arms. The right of no person to keep and bear arms in defense of his home, person and property, or in aid of the civil power when thereto legally summoned, shall be called in question.

Thirty-nine states guarantee an individual right to arms. Is this also a fraud?


You guys should actually watch the lecture..
