10. Of course you're post rings true
but the problem is that people only revere the constitutional rights THEY believe in, above all else. They fear guns so NOBODY else needs the 2nd Amendment. It really is pretty pathetic. Especially when they tell you stupid shit like "you can own the guns present when the 2nd was written" or "you have to get permission to exercise this particular right."
