The amendment reads: “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.”
Simple words, direct statement, straightforward wording like the 2nd amendment above should be easy to intrepret. I have confidence that a majority of the current supreme court will "get it right." They seem to understand the significance of it's historical background and it's impact on our future.
So...what should we (gun lobby) do while waiting on their decision? Should we sit and twiddle our thumbs? Should we make flaming comments of "what we will do if their decision doesn't please us? Should we bend the ears of our neighbors? Or, should we continue our past efforts to express our beliefs about what we believe the 2nd amendment was intended to mean? Maybe some of all the above would be worthwhile. And better yet, head to the range and fire off extra rounds to get our frustration out.
I expect the supreme court's decision to come forward in our favor, thus allowing citizens the right to own guns, without hassle from various government agencies as has been happening in the past and definitiely more strictly in some geographical areas than others in our country.
"If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right".
