The government can no more interfere with Second Amendment rights than it can infringe upon any other rights. If this were not so, then no liberty ó speech, press, religion, association, self-defense, privacy, travel, property ownership ó would be safe from the reach of a fearful majority.


Thatís why we have a Constitution.

This says it all!

Says it all from a very biased source. Per a blurb describing the Washington Times:

Throughout its history, The Washington Times has been known for its conservative political stance. It has drawn controversy for publishing racist content, including commentary and conspiracy theories about United States president Barack Obama and support for neo-Confederatism. It has published material promoting Islamophobia. It has published many columns which reject a scientific consensus on climate change, as well as ozone depletion and second-hand smoke.

Legislators violate the Constitution whenever they want, safe in the knowledge they won't be punished for it.

Because we live under man's law, rather than Natural Law.

It's an amendment. It can be changed or repealed. The founding fathers knew that. Not likely, but it can be.

given that about 90% of what the fed govt does isn't authorized by its constitution, I find no comfort in those words.
