The Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights states: “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.”

The people who wrote our Constitution were exceptionally well-educated, with most schooled in ancient and modern history; many read and spoke multiple languages including French, Latin and Greek, many had extensive mathematical training, some were doctors, most had significant legal schooling, some were inventors and scientists. For the Founding Fathers to have included a patent system in our Constitution meant that they anticipated changes and developments in all areas of technology, including firearms.

The Second Amendment is here to keep the government in fear of overstepping its authority. The Founding Fathers gave you this right. The Second Amendment is not for hunters, not for target shooters, but for a very specific purpose. Kathleen Williams and U.S. Sen. Jon Tester will take away the target shooters' guns first, hunting weapons next.

“First they came for my neighbor’s gun, and I did not speak out — because I was a hunter. Then they came for mine — and there was no one left to speak for me.”

Brian Bossard,

Butte
