Missed something–Dennis Henigan’s version of the Second Amendment returns

Thursday, I wrote about concerns held by Willard G. Jones, that the Supreme Court might issue a ruling in Heller that would protect individuals, rather than only government-approved militias, from the epidemic of gun laws.

Somehow, though, I managed to miss something in his quote of the Second Amendment (or, more accurately, something that’s not in his quote).

The Supreme Court, for the first time, is about to render a decision regarding the Second Amendment, “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state (our nation), the right to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

Aside from his helpful interjection that “free state” refers to our nation (thanks for clearing that up, Willard), he seems to prefer the Dennis Henigan version of the Second Amendment to the one that’s actually in the Constitution:

That preference, I suppose, is shared by a great many advocates of forcible citizen disarmament. It would be so much easier to justify disarming the people if the amendment didn’t explicitly specify that the right it guarantees is a right of the people.

    Such is the agenda of the Brady Bunch—-to dis-associate the given right of The People from the 2nd. Sad truth, is how many people not familiar with the True wording of the 2nd will hear His “Opinion” of how it is written, and take it for Fact. Which is something we know Brady and Co. does not deal in—Facts.
