    I just took my first step toward REAL retirement freedom, I said, "No, I no longer want to accept “responsibility” and step in and ‘fix’ everything for you." I fell for that line too many times in my life. It’s HELL being the oldest in a family. . .

    The introductory clause expressing the intended purpose does not do away with the main body of the statement.

    It does indeed, david. It is what is known—and has always been known as a constraining clause. you an others like you also take the amendment out of its time and place. At the time the constitution was cobbled together—and make no mistake, it WAS cobbled together—the male citizenry were the “militias.” As time went on, we di, indeed, as a country, institute and build up state/county/local police forces and 5 branches of military.

    The amendment was NEVER intended to foster what we have now; more guns than citizens, untrained citizens strutting around with guns, and citizen murders taking place in great numbers daily.

    Sorry, david: The nra, along with all the other guns-at-any-cost-and for-whatever-reason, has totally ignored the most important part of the Second Amendment: A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State. . ."

    And in so doing, have contributed and supported the idea that anybody and everybody should have the right to carry a gun.

    Warren Burger, Conservative Supreme Court Chief Justice:

    The Gun Lobby’s interpretation of the Second Amendment is one of the greatest pieces of fraud, I repeat the word fraud, on the American People by special interest groups that I have ever seen in my lifetime. The real purpose of the Second Amendment was to ensure that state armies – the militia – would be maintained for the defense of the state. The very language of the Second Amendment refutes any argument that it was intended to guarantee every citizen an unfettered right to any kind of weapon he or she desires.
