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.
I’m glad that I live in this country, where we, the citizens, have the right to bear arms. They don’t have that right in Iran.
The Second Amendment serves two purposes; one is the right to bear arms to defend yourself. The other is the right to defend ourselves against oppression. That’s the part about “necessary to the security of a free State”.
At least here, we can shoot back if our government ever mutates into an oppressive non-representative regime.
One of the signs of any government mutating into an oppressive regime: the desire or attempt to relieve the populace of their guns…
Because certain mindsets don’t want us to be free, responsible adults who think for ourselves – they want sheep.
