Quite simply you are wrong, here's why:
The first phrase "well regulated militia" is DEPENDENT upon the right of the free people to keep and bear arms.
Well I beg to differ.
A well regulated militia is formed by citizen who, when part of the militia, has every right to keep and bear arms.
All the text says is that there must be a militia and that any free man can be part of it and then have the right to bear arms.
History, judicial rulings, and the founding fathers own words all prove you wrong.
Any text can be refuted by learned people and people who have an agenda.
You are just standing on the shoulders on those who agree with you.
Just because you are a proponent of big government and less freedom does not entitle you to your own facts. Hell, you live in one of the highest taxed
nations on the planet, why do you even choose to debate the topic of freedom?
Well - we might be heavily taxed, but that is partly because we don't have to have health insurance. When we get ill or have an accident it is all
Also we have very few toll roads. It's all paid for.
We enter an old peoples home absolutely gratis. It's all paid for.
We get a state pension. It's all paid for.
Granted that the situation is partly changing mainly due to that world crisis, which by the way basically was caused by the greed of US bankers and
loan companies. Just another good reason for loving USA.
Why are you so afraid of a mere object that poses you no harm whatsoever unless it is operated by a human?
I'm also afraid of the atomic bomb - or nuclear device as we have to call it now.
Guns don't kill people. People do. Bah Humbug.
It is so much easier with a gun isn't it?
No - to be frank - the gun itself doesn't frighten me. It is the news of six year olds that bring a gun to school. It is the news we see of Gun
nutters who say that they have a right to bear arms and then show a collection of guns and rifles. It is the news we see of a police trooper who show
off by emptying an M16 into a target less than six feet away. It is the news we see where there is a sign on a gate warning people that "Tresspassers
will be shot. Survivors will be shot again." It is posts on places like ATS where people claim to have the right to use leathal force if people enter
their driveway. It is the news we see of schools that now have metal detectors at the entrance.
A gun is designed to kill. People buy a mere object that is designed to kill. It's probably that.
