America’s 1st Freedom
Everyone knows the Second Amendment does not protect an individual right. Instead, it establishes a collective right, which cannot be legally asserted by an individual. The only people who claim the Second Amendment protects an individual right are deluded “gun nuts” who are ignorant of the original intent of the Second Amendment, and of the Supreme Court’s past rulings.
If all you knew about the Second Amendment was what you learned from the national media, that’s what you would have believed during the latter decades of the 20th century.
Yet that view was entirely wrong, according to the unanimous Supreme Court in District of Columbia v. Heller (2008). How did such a foolish and obviously incorrect view of a constitutional right become so popular among America’s opinion elite?
