|Myth: Second Amendment protects individual liberties|
Submitted by: firstname.lastname@example.org">Mark A. Taff
In each instance, armed protesters used the Second Amendment to undermine democracy and individual rights. Democratically elected bodies in Virginia and Michigan were effectively threatened if they choose to act on measures — gun control and an extension of lockdown orders — that had wide public support. When citizens descend on a state capital brandishing guns, they effectively end any commitment to democratic debate.

|Meandering bunch of confused ineffable twaddle.|
Author conflates southern states' concerns over slave rebellions with the well known origins of the 2A. And she's a PHD!! !
"PHD" can also mean "piled high and deep."
I guess that applies here!!!!

|Whether or not the militia would be effective (a condition placed upon the right by the author) is immaterial. The right exists, and we have it, and it is unalienable.|
"The right there specified is that of 'bearing arms for a lawful purpose'. This is not a right granted by the Constitution. Neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence." - U.S .v Cruikshank (1875)
LIBERTY HAS NO EXPIRATION DATEDemocrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
