    Indeed, in Parker v. District of Columbia, Judge Silberman obviously was operating from an unstated assumption that one can use any text as long as it was written by a “competent” speaker of the English language.3 For a constitutional historian, such a methodology is deeply problematic.

    They can babble about the meanings of "bear arms", "militia" and "infringement" all they want, it doesn't change the most basic and simple truth:

    I am endowed by my Creator with life itself and both our Constitution and my faith (Catechism of the Catholich Church, Canons 1163, 64 and 65) recognize my right to life andallow me to defend myself, with lethal force if necessary, against evil that would take mylife.

    Being that criminals will always have guns.....so will I. Period.
