Here is a link to the American Civil Liberties Union stance on Gun Control.
An interesting tidbit from their page follows:
Since the Second Amendment. . . applies only to the right of the State to maintain a militia and not to the individual’s right to bear arms, there can be no serious claim to any express constitutional right to possess a firearm.
OK, so let’s go back and read the second amendment:
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.
Well regulated militia…security of a free State…the right OF THE PEOPLE to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Perhaps the ACLU and its manifold lawyers need a quick lesson in reading comprehension. The second amendment, right in its very own text, assigns the right to keep and bear arms to the people. Not to a militia, not to police or a military but to the God blessed people of this great country.
The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
