I know you're just carrying on all these arguments to try to substantiate your belief that we would be better off in this country with more laws about
guns, gun control, etc.
However, I'd like to try to point out to you once more why this is, in the United States at least, a moot topic.
There is no other country (with the exception of Mexico and Guatemala in a restricted way) that acknowledges the right to carry.
This right is on equal standing with freedoms of speech, religion, press, assembly and association, right to a jury trial, to habeas corpus, due
process and equal protection of the laws.
Right to carry a firearm is FUNDAMENTAL to the United States. Said another way the United States is UNIQUE in the world in this regard.
The right to carry (to "bear arms") is fundamental in English Common law.
Further the right to carry in the US is the only one of our acknowledged rights that the further empowerment SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED is attached to.
It is more than obvious that the Founders, every State that ratified the Constitution, and everyone who has ever sworn to protect it and live under
its protections have agreed with this fundamental right.
