There is No “But” in “Shall Not Be Infringed”
I can’t tell you how many times over the last week or so that I’ve heard somebody say, “I support the Second Amendment, but…”
This is a prime example of the principle that you can pretty much ignore everything a person says before the “but.”
They don’t mean it.
If there is a “but” in a statement of support for the Second Amendment, the person doesn’t really support the Second Amendment.
I can’t emphasize this enough. There is no “but” in the Second Amendment. It simply says, “shall not infringe.”
End of story.
