As each person discovers the Magic Words of the Second: "... shall not be infringed ..." it seems the discoverer must share it with us all.
This one is a little different, as some logic is presented in orderly fashion, as opposed to an emotional rant.
Konrad, my compliments on a well written post and well presented arguments, from your point of view.
I am moving this to the Law & Civil Rights forum. As a new Counselor in Law, you have come to one of the best places on the internet for a discussion of the Second and the limitations thereon. You will find a pragmatically mix of the interpretation, literally, of the wording of the Second, with the legal history of it's treatment, societal views that have grown from decades, nay generations, of propaganda and common sense.
I strongly recommend you read carefully the sticky threads at the top of each forum, particularly the General Discussion and L&CR fora, before proceeding.
