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

The first part of the 2nd amendment tells what we need; A well regulated militia, being necessary for a free state." The second part tells how you keep one. "The right OF THE PEOPLE to keep and bear arms, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED." Simple. To the point. I'm the people, you're the people, we are the people. The state is NOT the people. Telling me I need a permit infringes on my right to keep and bear arms. Telling us where we can and cannot carry an arm infringes on our right to keep and bear arms. Telling us what kind of arms we can have, be it a single shot rifle, a concealed pistol, a fully automatic machine gun, a bow and arrows, a knife, whatever, infringes on OUR right to keep and bear arms.
