Right To Bear Arms

Right to bear arms... kind of... Bill Of Rights...

2nd Amendment states, "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."

If well a regulated militia is not needed for the security of a free state (A), which I assume we are and with a highly functional military, aka a militia not required, we do not need the right for people to keep and bear arms (B). If (A) is not true than (B) is not an absolute right.

However the 9th Amendment states
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Self-Defense applies to this. Most people should have the ability to protect themselves and family by most means necessary, and therefore should have the right to own and use firearms in such acts. It does not mean law does not have its place to prohibit firearm straw purchases and other obvious acts to obfuscate ownership. Our Declaration of Independence mantra for its citizens, "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" is the breaker against the winds of popular opinion, a guarantee of some freedoms, and freedom from tyranny from a block lords to government.

This is further strengthened by the fact we have the right to bear arms as granted by the 2nd amendment, even though it does not apply to our age. Though commonsense says this right should have a transference to the the 9th Amendment for protection of self and family as governed by law and less then prohibition.
