“a well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

    Today that concern is a relic of the 18th century.
If history has shown us anything, the fears of extreme government overreach and oppression of peoples is not a relic of the past. This is what C.S. Lewis categorized as chronological snobbery.

At least this post is honest. Many of the regulations supported by the march are already in place especially in states like CA and NY. The action that is desired is a repeal of the 2nd amendment.

Unfortunately, many of the pro-2nd amendment voices are poorly educated and exercise bad rhetorical skill. They do not understand what they are arguing for and thus make dumb comments towards children and in front of cameras.
