Montanans insist on gun rights

As is noted: "Of course the historical evidence is unanimous that in 1889, the Second Amendment was considered to be an individual right comparable to the individual right of free speech," Mr. Kopel said in an e-mail.

In this day and age though, that does not appear to be so unanimous. There are those that wish to rewrite history. Today gun ownership is a state right and not an individual right. Mostly because those people know they can not convince the majority of Americans to give up that right. Hence they choose to twist the meaning of the Second Amendment so that it was not an individual right to start with. Then it is that much easier to use the power of the government to take away the guns.
