Here is something I found today that should interest all Americans...Remember, the Founding Fathers included the 2nd Amendment just in case the Bureaucrats, Parties, Politicians and PACs forget or infringe upon, or try to deny the other Amendments.

Second Amendment Secures Individual Right

A recent memorandum opinion for the U.S. Attorney General states: "For the foregoing reasons, we conclude that the Second Amendment secures an individual right to keep and to bear arms. [O]ur examination of the original meaning of the Amendment provides extensive reasons to conclude that the Second Amendment secures an individual right, and no persuasive basis for either the collective-right or quasi-collective-right views. [T]he broader history of the Anglo-American right of individuals to have and use arms, from England`s Revolution of 1688-1689 to the ratification of the Second Amendment a hundred years later, leads to the same conclusion. Finally, the first hundred years of interpretations of the Amendment, and especially the commentaries and case law in the pre-Civil War period closest to the Amendment`s ratification, confirm what the text and history of the Second Amendment require."

What's profound about the right to bear arms? The U.S. A.G. is telling us what we already know. :confused:
