    If they choose the 2nd and skirt the rest, and we skirt the 2nd and embrace the rest, that's just two different diners at the same cafeteria. What I have yet to see here is a principled defense of rights that shows the grounds for choosing any given right over another, or an explanation why free speech and protection from double jeopardy are rights but bearing arms is not. After all, if something is a right, it isn't given to us by the Bill of Rights, it is merely recognized there.
