According to the “Declaration of Independence,” among our rights are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—but our rights are not restricted to those particular blessings. For example, it stands to reason that “we the people” have the right to defend our liberty. That is why the 2nd Amendment assumes that we already have the right to keep and bear arms, and that is why it tells the federal government to “Back off!”

The Heart and Soul of the US Constitution
 By Jim ONeill Full Story
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.—2nd Amendment, Bill of Rights, US Constitution
A careful reading of the 2nd Amendment clearly shows that it does not give anyone the right to anything. What it does say, in no uncertain terms, is that the right to keep and bear arms (a right assumed to already exist), shall not be tampered with (infringed) by the federal government.
