I would think they did in fact. The protection of life and limb was definitely a part of thier thinking from the get go. The frontier lands at the time didn't come with a phone to call the police to stop what is now considered "home invasion", and remember those perpatrators were either just thives and robbers or indians pissed off for some reason.

To often the 9-1-1 call only serves to let the authorities know where to deliver the body bags.

Yes.

The Bill of Rights is a blanket protection from tyranny.

Too many people love to play wordsmith and write laws to get arround the Constitution instead of just coming at a problem using the Constitution.

If we need to amend the Constitution there is a procedure, but making up fairy tales to change the Constitution to fit your agenda is un-American.

Funny how the usual suspects come out for more gun control while at the same time say it is impossible for our government to control our border, in which we have the great number of gang members in L.A. come from that use those guns that they get from their Cartel hoodies which the Obama administration provided in Fast and Furious.

That's why there were laws against murder, etc, and why laws have evolved to allow for the protection of one's property.

The 2nd amendment was written to give people the right to own weapons AND to prevent the government from attempting to take that right away. It wasn't written so people could stop drug dealers from home invasions.

Now, if it is interpreted as such so I can have a gun in my home to protect myself from such a thing, great. But that's not why it was written into the Constitution vs. written into criminal statutes.

Wrong. It protects our right to own weapons; it doesn't grant us that right.

Right. It merely protects our means for self-defense (which is a natural right).

It already has been. Ever heard of DC v. Heller?

quote:

District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), was a landmark case in which the Supreme Court of the United States held that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution protects an individual's right to possess a firearm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home, in federal enclaves. The decision did not address the question of whether the Second Amendment extends beyond federal enclaves to the states,[1] which was addressed later by McDonald v. Chicago (2010). It was the first Supreme Court case in United States history to decide whether the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms.

Our rights don't come from the government. They come from our Creator as stated in the Declaration of Independence.

Fair enough. Agree with everything else said. I was only referring to the overarching intention at its ratification. The US was creating its own government, in part to escape the tyranny of the throne.

It's really an ingenious concept to create a constitution that is designed to limit the power of government.
