Here's Thomas Jefferson, the man who wrote the Declaration of Independence, calling on James Madison, the man who drafted the Second Amendment, to recognize the ancient right of owning a gun for self defence unconnected to militia service:

"I was in Europe when the Constitution was planned, and never saw it till after it was established. On receiving it I wrote strongly to Mr. Madison, urging the want of provision for the freedom of religion, freedom of the press, trial by jury, habeas corpus,*THE SUBSTITUTION OF MILITIA FOR A STANDING ARMY*, and an express reservation to the States of all rights not specifically granted to the Union. He accordingly moved in the first session of Congress for these amendments, which were agreed to and ratified by the States AS THEY NOW STAND".
----------

Here's a Judge reafirming that purpose:

"The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia....."

Oops!

"Encourage all your virtuous dispositions, and exercise them whenever an opportunity arises, being assured that they will gain strength by exercise as a limb of the body does, and that exercise will make them habitual...Give about two of them [hours] every day to exercise; for health must not be sacrificed to learning. A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercise, I advise the gun. While this gives a moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprize, and independance to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks."--Thomas Jefferson, Aug. 19, 1785 letter to Peter Carr,[PTJ 8:406-8. Thomas Jefferson Encyclopedia, Excercise. Monticello.org ]
Which of the two quotes gives us a better idea of the purpose of the Second Amendment?

Justice Stevens suggests that “keep and bear Arms” was
"Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues. The Court’s opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.[United States v.] Miller’s holding that the sorts of weapons protected are those “in common use at the time” finds support in the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of dangerous and unusual weapons."

This suggestion usefully evades the problem that there is no evidence whatsoever to support a military reading of “keep arms.”
Articles of Confederation : March 1, 1781

"....but every State shall always keep up a well-regulated and disciplined militia, sufficiently armed and accoutered, and shall provide and constantly have ready for use, in public stores, a due number of filed pieces and tents, and a proper quantity of arms, ammunition and camp equipage".

That's keeping arms.

MASSACHUSETTS:(1780) "The people have a right to keep and to bear arms for the COMMON defence. And as, in time of peace, armies are dangerous to liberty, they ought not to be maintained without the consent of the legislature; and the military power shall always be held in an exact subordination to the civil authority, and be governed by it".

You abuse the Second Amendment and worship guns and nitwits who want to force everyone to have them. The Founding Fathers would puke to see how your kind abuse your own Constitutional rights.
What's funny is that none of you - not ONE - have the guts to pull a gun to defend people in a mall or school or theater, nor would you have the stones to use your "arms" to fight the government.
Keyboard warriors, all of you...:)
Do tell: Just ~how~ is he 'forcing' anyone else to do something against his will?

Point out just ONE post here, where a pro-liberty poster has declared that everyone MUST be FORCED to do something against their will.

You'll be doing that real soon now, won't you?

Or will you?

You mean like when someone insists he has a "right" to carry a gun into my restaurant even though I have a sign that expressly forbids him to come into MY business armed?

And everyone else who came to my restaurant knowing I have a no guns policy is FORCED to put up with this sh!thead who is hiding his gay .32 pistol in his sock?
