I figured that would get some attention. Let me clarify my statment.
Background: I live in MD where I am unable to get a permit to carry a firearm.
I feel that we [firearm supporters] are fighting the wrong battle with the second amendment. After reading the Federalist Papers multiple times as well as the 2nd amendment, the right to bear arms, in our constitution, to maintain a free state is a political agenda and legal right vulnerable to mis-interpretation, alteration, and failure.
The right to bear arms is a natural human right. The right to protect yourself from anything (mugger, government, dog, falling objects, etc) cannot be taken away by anyone or anything, hence making the second amendment a moot point and irrelevant in the natural right to bear arms.
I feel we should be bearing arms in all forms regardless of attempted oppression to our natural right and leave the legal right of the second amendment out of it.
Thanks for listening, I'm off my soapbox.
