sorry sir you are incorrect
an article whose facts are incorrect

"The Second Amendment was ratified in 1791 as part of the Bill of Rights, a collection of vital Amendments added shortly after the Constitution went into effect. The Amendment reads "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed." Some have argued that this provides a right to bear arms only in the context of a well-regulated militia. Others reject that notion and say its an individual right. The Supreme Court has never ruled definitively on that question. That last major Court ruling on this Amendment was issued nearly 70 years ago when justices upheld a federal ban on sawed-off shotguns."

1. Sadly many in the gun-ban community will believe the article's lies. Ignorance supported by fear of
firearms coupled with lies by reporters fuel hysteria among those who would ban all firearms.

2. Sorry the Supreme Court says its an individual right!!!
The court has spoken, the collective right opinion has been destroyed.
