Whether we like it or not there will always be some restrictions on the 2A. Our job is to keep them reasonable. The 2A will never be interpreted to mean you have the right to own anti-aircraft missiles. Push for that, and you will raise such a public outcry that the libs may be able to get the 2A repealed in it's entirety.
Our best weapon is reason and common sense. Our worst enemy is fanaticism.
I did not say it was 'absolute'! We have to 'manage' all of our rights to see they are not abused. BUT we have allowed ALL of our right to be way over managed, the RTKABA's more so than our other rights!
Did you see my definition of common sense?
