Look, people, as a REAL "wild west" (literally) American, let me make this so simple that ANYONE should be able to grasp it:
The nobody-else-but-America Second Amendment to the United States (note that part carefully) Constitution was NOT - I say again, "NOT"! - settled upon lightly, or after a night's drinking.
It was discussed, debated, argued-over, written down by the men who FOUNDED America, then VOTED for by the AMERICAN Continental Congress, then RATIFIED by a vote in ALL of the AMERICAN COLONIES....
...and all of this only AFTER they had successfully defeated the TYRANNY of the world's only superpower at that time.....
...and NOT a bit of all that was done just on a whim.
Those men were classically-read and self-educated, basing their world-changing documents on the philosophy of the greatest men in human History from Moses to Aristotle to Locke to Adam Smith and too many more to list.
With me so far?
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
First things first - that whole "well regulated Militia" part is STRICTLY a LOCALLY organized/regulated proposition.
Many of the Founders NEVER EVEN WANTED A FEDERAL MILITARY.
...remember how popular the "Quartering Acts" were to them?
....look it up, then you should be able to figure that one out.
Next, "hunting" and "target practice" WERE EVERYDAY ACTIVITIES IN THE COLONIES - and largely illegal back on "the king's lands", so IF they felt any need to protect THOSE rights from a TYRANT GOVERNMENT, they would have written it IN, wouldn't they?
But those words never even APPEAR in the Constitution - they were a GIVEN FACT IN EVERYDAY LIFE BACK THEN (and even now, in some parts of America, like where I live).
...or is that too much logic, so far?
Now, see that "necessary to the security of a free state" part?
Today's Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea....
Get the picture, kiddies?
...or do I REALLY need to explain that part?
Next, that "the right of the people" part?
LOOK CAREFULLY, and even a leftist should see that it does NOT require a LICENSE, TEST, CERTIFICATION, A NOTE FROM THEIR MOMMIES, and certainly NOT ANY-DAMNED-THING FROM THE VERY TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT WHICH IT WAS DESIGNED TO ENABLE THOSE CITIZENS TO PROTECT THEMSELVES AGAINST!
I mean THINK about that - were the Founders REALLY going to allow the "prospective enemy" to determine IF they would have the means to fight back AGAINST that very same "enemy"?
NOBODY could be THAT stupid - but the anti-gun pukes would have us believe they were!
Finally, what part of "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED" confuses so many people?
...actually, nothing at all.
They merely IGNORE that part in their quest for MORE POWER, and having people with guns REALLY crimps the ambitions of leftists world-wide, which is WHY the first thing EVERY prospective tyrant does is DISARM ANYONE THEY DON'T LIKE (which is usually just about everyone who doesn't kiss their ass - reverently, and with tongues).
In summary - lean closer so you see this clearly - THIS is what the Second Amendment is REALLY all about, and WHY the tyrant-wanna-be's around the planet cry themselves to sleep at night trying to destroy it:
THE SECOND AMENDMENT PROTECTS FREE CITIZENS FROM TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT BY GUARANTEEING THEM THE MEANS NECESSARY TO FIGHT AGAINST IT.
It's really no more complicated than that, boys'n'girls.
ANY other arguments about keeping them out of the hands of kids and lunatics are fine, but the guns STAY in the hands of FREE MEN AND WOMEN.
An armed man is a citizen, an unarmed one is a subject.
...and here in America, we CHOSE where we will stand on that, 230+ years ago.
