    That’s like very shallow comparison of two realities. Better guns is not the only think that changed, society changes too.

      True…this country wasnt nearly as violent during segregation. Really makes you think…

      • Pedro Henrique

        … that we should get back to how things were back then.
        Give power to black, women and degenerates, they surrender their souls to leftists. Take away their power, leftists won’t have low iq groups to cater for.

      I didnt know that if society changes then your rights should as well…that’s interesting…

      No change could ever justify outlawing weapons. Only subjugation and death await those who beat their swords into plowshares.

    The Second Amendment broke down using the terms and definitions of the time:
    *”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.”*

    _*A well regulated Militia*_
    Richard Henry Lee: “A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves…and include all men capable of bearing arms.” (Additional letters from the Federal Farmer, at 169, 1788)

    James Madison: “A WELL REGULATED militia, composed of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country.” (1st Annals of Congress, at 434, June 8th 1789

    “The militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves, … all men capable of bearing arms;” – Richard Henry Lee 1788

    A Regulated Militia was anyone 18-40 that was capable with firearms.
    Im Well Armed, Well Versed in Firearms, and I am one of the People (US Citizen)…therefore I am part of a Well Regulated Militia.

    *_being necessary to the security of a free State*_
    It says exactly what it was intended for, not for the defense of your home but the security of freedom within the “state” meaning Country. This encompasses the entire Country, not just a home or individual….

    _*the right of the people to keep and bear Arms*_
    The Right of the People, meaning every man, woman, and child has an Individual Right. Meaning that even if the majority of people demand to have their Rights taken by the Government I still have my Right, I never forfeited or gave consent for them to be taken and no one speaks for me. Even if Government wrote laws to diminish the Constitution those Rights are still mine as the Government does not have a higher claim of Authority over me than I do. Keep and Bear means on person or in hand, any and all arms* that exist. Arms meaning any weapon used for offense or defense.

    _*shall not be infringed.*_
    I shouldn’t have to break this down but meaning zero restriction. No regulations, no restrictions, no taxes, that all bearable firearms/accessories/parts/ammunitions/destructive devices and all other weapons are to be free to own by the citizenry. No Government or Union/Group shall interfere on this Amendment in any form or manner, for the citizens will carry arms to keep the security of the free state, against all threats foreign or domestic.

    Nunn v. State, 1 Ga. (1 Kel.) 243 (1846) is a Georgia Supreme Court ruling that a state law ban on handguns was an unconstitutional violation of the Second Amendment. This was the first gun control measure to be overturned on Second Amendment grounds.[1]
    “Nor is the right involved in this discussion less comprehensive or valuable: “The right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed.” The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State. Our opinion is, that any law, State or Federal, is repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right, originally belonging to our forefathers, trampled under foot by Charles I. and his two wicked sons and successors, reestablished by the revolution of 1688, conveyed to this land of liberty by the colonists, and finally incorporated conspicuously in our own Magna Charta!”

    When you become a Public Servant, you are supposed to REPRESENT THE PEOPLE WHO ELECT YOU and uphold and protect the Constitution, all officials should be Constitutionalists through and through – it should be a mandatory requirement.There should also be third party evaluation team with protocols that evaluates and then removes public servants from their seat if they confess or show evidence they are against the Constitution or using their seat to implement their own agendas onto the people.

    If the Supreme Courts “interpretations” will lead to change in how the Constitution is interpreted, while the interpretation is ever evolving, then the Constitution means nothing as the interpretations could say one thing and they can “interpret” whats written as something else and go from there. This is how the ATF has been criminalizing law abiding citizens since their conception and we’ve seen how dangerous that becomes (See: WACO and Ruby Ridge)

    What the Founding Fathers practiced and what they wrote should be weighed and valued, not how people “interpret” it today as the new age views seem to be radically different than what the Founding Fathers practiced themselves, easily seen in the firearms sector for an example of what Im talking about.

    The Constitution and our Founding Fathers wanted us to be AS armed as the State, that we should have any bearable arms we could want, as a deterrent to tyranny. Civilians owned Warships fitted with explosive and multiple cannons, the Fathers contracted to build the first automatic rifle but couldn’t afford it and they were doing it for the people. There were a slew of “advanced” firearms during the time: Puckle gun, Belton Flintlock, Ferguson Rifle, Kalthoff Repeater, Chinese rocket arrows, Hand cannons, Chinese lever crossbow, Duckfoot pistol, German wheel-lock rifles, Rampart guns, Volley guns, Death battery, German axe pistols. They had rifles that carried a handful of rounds also like the Girandoni Rifle that held 22-25 shots. (Mag limit argument). To suggest that civilians couldn’t own any and all arms today and that the Constitution didn’t cover them is preposterous, do you believe that they didn’t envision that technology wouldn’t advance? If you don’t agree with these claims then Free Speech is also limited to goose-quill pen and an iron gall or carbon-based ink if that argument is consistent.

    *US constitution*
    _Article IV Section II_
    “The citizens of each state shall be entitled to all privileges and immunities of citizens in the several states”

    “When government takes away citizens’ right to bear arms it becomes citizens’ duty to take away government’s right to govern” – George Washington

    “If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so.” – Thomas Jefferson

    “The general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and the name of law, is in reality no law, but is wholly void and ineffective for any purpose since unconstitutionality dates from the time of its enactment and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it; an unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed … An unconstitutional law is void.” (16 Am. Jur. 2d, Sec. 178)

    ” We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, that to secure these rights governments are instituted among men. We…solemnly publish and declare, that these colonies are and of a right ought to be free and independent states…and for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honour. “
