Let’s just clear a few things up. "The real reason the Second Amendment was ratified, and why it says “State” instead of “Country” (the Framers knew the difference—see the 10th Amendment), was to preserve the slave patrol militias in the southern states, an action necessary to get Virginia’s vote to ratify the Constitution, and BTW It had nothing whatsoever to do with making sure mass murderers could shoot up public venues and schools. Founders including Patrick Henry, George Mason, and James Madison were totally clear on that, and we all should be too." In today’s America, you have the “right” to a gun, but no “right” to healthcare or education. In every other developed country in the world, the reality is the exact opposite!"
