14. 2nd Amendment "freedoms" amount to nothing more than the freedom to have bullets enter our bodies.
Such "freedom" is double speak.

A society in which you can be so conveniently killed upon the whim of others is a state of terror.

A society in which the living and the dead are distinguishable only by who can draw and fire first is a state of terror.

The 2nd was put in there as an appeasement toward those who were skeptical of a strong central government.

The Civil War has rendered the 2nd entirely moot.

So let's stop the charade that guns have anything to do with "rights" or "freedoms."
