As read in the local paper...
The right of the PEOPLE.......
NOT the right of the militia!

Again, you might want to read the 2nd amendment. Nowhere does it say "Raise a militia"....I'll help you out a bit. "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." Definition of Yankee: yan·kee Noun: A person who lives in, or is from, the US.

You are terribly mistaken about the Constitution. the Second Amendment IS a right.
By your logic, we "could"say that your First Amendment rights are really only a priviledge, and make you do a back ground check, waiting period, reduce your vocabulary to 10 words at a time, and make you say only one word per sentence.
As much as you dislike the Second Amendment, it is the ONLY thing that protects your right to say silly things like you have..
You can't pick and choose which parts of the Constitution you agree with. It stands together, or falls together. What's it going to be sport?
There is a remedy available for you: Pick up, and move to MA, CT, CA, or Chicago. That way,you won't have to fear guns....just the punks that have them REGARDLESS of the law.
