The 2nd Amendment
The 1st 10 Amendments, The Bill of Rights, are, in my mind, as essential to our government as the Articles of the Constitution.
The 2nd Amendment sets America apart: We insist, by law, that each person is responsible for defense of self, family, community, and the United States. The Bill of Rights is sacred, if anything is sacred. Any alteration to those ten statements of the individual’s protection and responsibility, by law, will put in jeopardy the entire code of law.
Rule-of-law is what has made America free: The Bill of Rights is America and America is the Bill of Rights.
I have 3 grand children and they may have a different opinion during their day. I intend to leave this discussion and any decision of the 2nd Amendment to their generation.
