    I say leave it alone. If we start rewriting our Constitution with the current spin who knows what you will get. The courts, in my opinion, have already trampled the US Constitution to death. They continue to legislate law from the bench as it is. Why give them the chance to give themselves even more power. The House and Senate are the only two branches that have the Constitutional athority to legislate laws. Not the President nor the courts. It's time to put the power back were it belongs, with the people.

    snipped for brevity...

    Instead of fighting for our 2nd amendment right, we should be fighting for a rewrite of the 2nd amendment. One that clarifies its intention and our specific rights; such that it eliminates any possible confusion as to its meaning. It should also make clear an understanding that it be upheld by both the Federal and State Governments.

    What say ye to that my fellow citizens.
    NOT at this time when who he is at the WH is there...we should vote for someone who we can trust to protect our rights first before even thinking of rewriting the Constitution. Period.

    "the people" in the 2nd Amendment is the same "the people" found in the 1st, 4th and 10th Amendments. The primary purpose of the Bill of Rights is to limit the powers of the Federal Government. There is nothing vague about the intent of the 2nd Amendment that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

    Penn& Teller

    Penn and Teller break it down pretty simple. It's the best explanation of the 2nd Amendment I personally have ever heard. You can look it up on YouTube somewhere. I believe it is under 'Penn and Teller on the 2nd amendment '

    Again, I stress it is not the last part of 2A that is questionable. It is the first part.. It lends itself to interpretation. If it was so clear as you put it "only an idiot can misinterpret that" than there would be total agreement among the 12 SCJs as to its meaning. Actually if it were clear, there would have been no reason for the SCJs to debate its meaning, because there would be no court case, because no legal action would have been brought before the courts, because no legal issue would have needed to be questioned, (it would have been CLEARLY UNDERSTOOD).
    You chose to attach you own meaning to what you read, however others can also chose to attach there own meaning to the same words...

    That is why this IDOT feels it might be better to require clairification, to eliminate the possibility or need to have the question debated by any one....

    Personally, I didnt need DC vs Hellers ruling. Petsonally, I dont care which way they "interpret" a document that needs no intepretation. I can read and comprehend the written word and I know what rights are affirmed by the US Constitution. Even if they reversed their decision, do you think theyre going to convince 80+ million people to give them up? Not on my watch!

    Hey WEW, At first I thought you were being cynical but I read more of your posts. Maybe this will help and maybe we just need to interpret it with the vocabulary of the day. Webster's Dictionary was declared the book to use by the Congress early on as the official dictionary.

    Here is just one of many on Sir William Blackstone on Natural Law. Blackstone Institute - Sir William Blackstone
    or just "google" him. Should help.
