KEEPING & BEARING ARMS is INFRINGED
Sir William Blackstone, in Commentaries on the Laws of England, wrote about the right to have arms as auxiliary to the "natural right of resistance and self-preservation.” On June 26, 2008, in Heller v. District of Columbia, the Supreme Court decided the Second Amendment meant what the Second Amendment says. The natural right to keep and bear arms is the right to resist oppression, preserve our lives, and defend our property. The Second Amendment, the Grand Jury Clause of the Fifth Amendment, and the Seventh Amendment are the only provisions of the Bill of Rights not incorporated against the States.
Most of the humanity, for most of human history, has been unarmed and subjugated.
Research Werner Best, Ernst Eduard vom Rath, Herschel Grynszpan, and Kristallnacht. Cambodia, China, Guatemala, Rwanda, Ottoman Turkey, Uganda, USSR – same deal. Disarming a hated minority before the pogrom is nothing new. Armed Americans will not go down this way. So the more Second Amendment infringement you witness, the closer you are to seeing real violence.
