    USA Today poll on RKBA

    Nasty trick question.

    USATODAY.com - Quick Question

    Does the Second Amendment give individuals the right to bear arms?
    It is my understanding that it protects the right, not give it to us.

    I declined to vote.

    I say that come close to splitting hairs Sticks. You first have to have the right in order for it to be protected, so what gave us the right to have it protected, I believe it does both for nothing proceeds it or comes after it.

    So where in any of the Federal level books does it say that the Citizens of the United States "...are hereby granted the right to possess arms..." or some such language?


    Oops, that statement is going to get this thread moved.
