The Second Amendment is not doing very well this week.

"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."
There has long been a slight difference of opinion between those who see the second amendment as enabling the government to add quickly to its regulating forces, and those who see it as enabling a free people to arm themselves against an unjust government.


If the intention of our founding fathers was to make it easy for wandering bands of upstarts to arm themselves, shooting at police, soldiers and rescue missions, then our founding fathers were a bunch of idiots. Currently, perhaps it's too easy to steal, keep and bear arms.
