Question regarding the title of this thread: How does his being a "former active duty Marine" have any bearing at all? Does he get extra 2A rights for that?
I'm former active duty Army (closing in on 40 years ago now, but we don't need to dwell), do I get extra 2A rights too? Is it 2A+? 2A²?
Do former Marines get 2A++? 2A³?
Me personally, given the choice I'd have left my gun in the car and exercised my right to vote.
