Liberal Says 2nd Amendment Meant to Give State Right to Bear Arms

Everyone, everyone misinterprets the 2nd amendment. The phrase "a free state" does not refer to a political entity but rather the state of being free. The second amendment was designed to keep the people armed against tyranny and slavery. That was clear from the beginning in the writings of the founding fathers. It was only when the traitors (liberals/progressive and such) realized that the second prevented them from enslaving us that they began the cacophony of "militia, militia, militia". The NRA and the Tea Party stand firm against the treason of the democrat party and will continue to do so.

The Second Amendment simply states the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The Second Amendment could be stripped from the Constitution but the people would still have the right.
