The Second Amendment, According to Whitehouse.Gov

Submitted by Bill St. Clair on Tue, 24 Mar 2009 11:43:17 GMT  <== Politics ==> has a pretty good page on the Constitution, including a summary of the Bill of Rights. It has an error, however. I posted the following to their contact page: [codrea]

I just noticed your page on the US Constitution, . It says, "The Second Amendment gives citizens the right to bear arms." That is incorrect. We the people, all the people, whether citizens or not, have the right to keep and bear arms, as a natural consequence of our right to life. The Second Amendment says that the government is not allowed to infringe on that right. It doesn't GIVE us anything. It simply acknowledges a pre-existing right. The difference is important. That which Uncle Sam giveth, Uncle Sam may taketh away. Please fix your page.
