Jeff Lowder on gun violence

Here.  The idea of repealing the second amendment has just been defended by former justice Stevens.  He has been criticized here.

I still say "well regulated militia" means just that.The second amendment does not give each individual the right to own a gun. The conservatives are so definite about clear and obvious word meanings when it helps them.

"The right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed". That seems very clear, unless you're an intellectually dishonest gun hater.

Penn and Teller explain: Penn & Teller Explain The Second Amendment

Nick,

Saying the first clause of the Second Amendment is explanatory context for interpreting the second clause does not mean a person is intellectually dishonest, and the only hateful comment in here has come from you.

Has anyone noticed that the amendment is about keeping and bearing arms, and not about owning them?
