The Second Amendment

For those who have never lived in a country –as citizens of that country– where legal rights do not include the individual guarantees afforded by Due Process or Habeas Corpus; where the rule of the law dictates that a suspect is guilty until proven innocent; where dictatorship takes on many forms, some outright and some nuanced; and where the individual ownership of firearms is prohibited or restricted, as a form of state oppression; for those people it will always be difficult to understand or appreciate the magnificent gift that is given to a citizenry, when the law of the land includes and protects a constitutional, fundamental right to bear arms.
