Citizens are helpless against the tools of war
“A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep, and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”
So, the Second Amendment secures the right for citizens to formulate a well-regulated militia in order to fend off invasion, or act against a tyrannous government. With today’s technology, should Americans now arm themselves with chemical weapons, nuclear weapons, and the like? As citizens, we are helpless to defend ourselves against existing tools of war. Is it time, YET, to re-examine guns in America?
