The second is the supreme unalienable right given only by our creator. NOT the Constitution or Government. The Constitution merely secures this right written in the supreme Law of the land document. The maxim of law says “one can only control what one creates.” MAKE NO MISTAKE; the “Dick Act” is NOT a replacement for the SUPREME “SECOND AMENDMENT” of the Bill of Rights.
The “Second Amendment” protects the right to keep and bear arms, a right that dates back to England before the Magna Carta.
Adopted on December 15, 1791; as ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, then-Secretary of State;
“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.”advertisement - story continues below
A Speech about the Dick Act that can be somewhat confusing;
“‘The militia, within the meaning of these provisions of the Constitution is distinct from the Army of the United States.’ In these pages we also find a statement by Daniel Webster, ‘that the great principle of the Constitution on that subject is that the militia is the militia of the States and of the General Government; and thus being the militia of the States, there is no part of the Constitution worded with greater care and with more scrupulous jealousy than that which grants and limits the power of Congress over it.’
‘This limitation upon the power to raise and support armies clearly establishes the intent and purpose of the framers of the Constitution to limit the power to raise and maintain a standing army to voluntary enlistment, because if the unlimited power to draft and conscript was intended to be conferred, it would have been a useless and puerile to limit the use of money for that purpose. Conscripted armies can be paid, but they are not required to be, and if it had been intended to confer the extraordinary power to draft the bodies of citizens and send them out of the country in direct conflict with the limitation upon the use of the militia imposed by the same section and article, certainly some restriction and limitation would have been imposed to restrain the unlimited use of such power.’”
