The fact that there are today Federal laws against some classes of firearms has nothing to do with our Founder’s intentions when they wrote and included the Second Amendment in our U.S. Constitution and the fact that laws are on the books has nothing to do with their validity or unconstitutionality, the fact is they just haven’t been challenged in court yet. The Second Amendment is our Founding Fathers’ life insurance policy for independence, freedom and individualism in the United States of America, and it was included to protect a free citizenry from an oppressive and tyrannical central government.

We all know the term "The Bill of Rights" which are the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution although few of us (including me) could name them.
