    English analysis of the Second amendment

    When I first joined here or there shortly after I saw a thread where a guy did an analysis of the Second from the standpoint of an English teacher . For all of my skill in searching the forum I cannot find the thread, can anyone help? My Daughter is doing a speech on the loss of Our Second Amendment Rights and this would help her greatly.

    There were other articles I found in my search, but these are a good start. The last one is well worth reading.

    I've put up a couple of such analyses, here. Might have been one of mine. Try searching on my posts.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    Be prepared for her to get into some trouble. I've read articles about school kids (high school and college) getting in trouble for doing things in support of 2A.
