  •  You start with a strawman argument -- (0+ / 0-)

    specifically, that merely the use of the clause (and only the use of this clause, apart from any meaning therein) is meant to indicate constraint and as if the only indication of this intended constraint is this sentence structure's use exclusively within the Second Amendment, as if this particular sentence structure transforms the sentence to an incantation; further implying that other examples of the same sentence structure would dispel the magic you, yourself, brought into being.

    You finish with a non-parallelism -- specifically, whereas the Second Amendment refers to "the right of the people" (collective), your example of Rhode Island refers to the right of "any person" (singular, inclusive).

    Righteousness is a wide path. Self-righteousness is a bullhorn and a blindfold.
