    Middle School worksheet - Second Amendment doesn't guarantee individual RTKBA

    This took place in a Connecticut middle school.

    "This means that the rights of this amendment are not extended to the individual citizens of the states," the worksheet reads. "So a person has no right to complain about a Second Amendment violation by state laws."

    According to the document, the Second Amendment "only provides the right of a state to keep an armed National Guard."

    I guess they neglected to read the Preamble of the Bill of Rights, where it spells out the purpose of the first 10 amendments to the Constitution:

    THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.

    RESOLVED by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, two thirds of both Houses concurring, that the following Articles be proposed to the Legislatures of the several States, as amendments to the Constitution of the United States, all, or any of which Articles, when ratified by three fourths of the said Legislatures, to be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of the said Constitution
    The clauses exist to keep the government in check. Period. The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting or recreational shooting. It exists to keep the federal government in general in check.

    It also exists to keep the standing army, which was stood up over the objections of several of the Founders (who mightily mistrusted any standing army), in check.

    "What, Sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty. Whenever governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins." Elbridge Gerry

    "Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive." Noah Webster

    "[W]hereas, to preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them; nor does it follow from this, that all promiscuously must go into actual service on every occasion. The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly anti-republican principle; and when we see many men disposed to practice upon it, whenever they can prevail, no wonder true republicans are for carefully guarding against it." Richard Henry Lee

    "If we were to be involved in war an army must be resorted to in aid of the militia; but, in the first instance, the militia might be depended upon as a sure and safe defense of this country." Joseph McDowell

    "A militia is everywhere; whereas a standing army may be very distant from any attack which may take place." Albert Gallatin, regarding dealing with domestic threats of many kinds
    And if the Second Amendment exists to protect us from the government and the military, then by extension it also exists to give us the power to protect ourselves from each other.

    As Thomas Paine observed,

    "The balance of power is the scale of peace... but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside. And while a single nation refuses to lay them down, it is proper that all should keep them up.
    While he was speaking specifically of relations between nations, the same principle applies to relations between individuals. Since there are criminals who refuse to lay down their arms, it is proper that we should all keep them up.

    Back when I got mine it wasn't so bad. And you couldn't get much more gov't controlled than on a military base overseas. At least back then high school civics was still mandatory and did spend about half the year on just operations of the gov't thru local, state, and Fed levels. Sadly, in 1972 down here, it became an elective. Since that time, the left has had free rein.

    I initially clicked on "Like", but then thought better of it. Good post Ezekiel. Home school is the way to go! Every day, I'm more convinced that we're going to have to bifurcate the country, and give part to the libtards like CT, so the rest of us can live free like the founders intended.
    "The 2nd amendment was never intended to allow private citizens to 'keep and bear arms'. If it had, there would have been wording such as 'the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed'." -- Ken Konecki on Usenet, on 27 Jul 1992
