10 Common Arguments For Gun Control Debunked

Good read here at the federalist.com by Ryan Cleckner, a former special operations sniper and a current firearms attorney.

Lots of goodies in here but my favorite is the analogy he uses in his regarding the misreading of the 2nd Amendment regarding militia:

The militia is mentioned as the goal for the protection of our right to keep and bear arms — it is not a requirement. A helpful analog from an unknown author goes like this: “A well-educated electorate, being necessary to the preservation of a free society, the right of the people to read and compose books, shall not be infringed.”

In this example, it should be easy to see that the right to read and compose books is not reserved only to those that are registered voters or well-educated. Instead, the goal is a well-educated electorate, for which tools of education are needed. Likewise, our right to keep and bear arms is protected in the event a well-regulated militia is needed to defend our country.
Emphasis mine.

This is well stated.
.. tyrants accomplish their purposes ...by disarming the people, and making it an offense to keep arms. - Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story, 1840
