    It is so explicit and obvious that a collective right was conferred by the second amendment,

    if that was so, then why is it listed as #2 in a list of individual rights? All of the other rights in the Bill of rights are individual rights, not group rights.
    (yes I know these are now also corporate rights, snicker)
    Why isn't it obvious to the SCOTUS and a liberal POTUS?
    Parsing the words of the 2d amendment is like arguing over how many angels dance on the head of th pin. Either do something about it or not, standing and demanding that people go by your interpretation of it won't do it

    Happy just to be alive
