As long as you are a law abiding citizen you are entitled to the 2nd Amendment rights...

We certainly shouldn't give them every opportunity to slip us a fast one, and we should absolutely come down on them like a ton of bricks when they attempt doing so. The language is fairly straightforward and unambiguous: because it's crucial to our freedom, the right of the People to be armed exists and shall not be infringed.
The People reserved unto themselves the right to be armed, they acknowledged the fact they had every right to do so, and they specifically worded the language to disallow any temporarily-elected folk from taking that from anyone. Even if hirelings criminalize the People for arming themselves, we each still retain every right to do so.
