The "Heller" Gun Rights Supreme Court Decision of June 26, 2008, gives us the right "to keep" arms, with many loopholes for local authorities . . .

. . . but it does not give us the right to "bear arms" as spelled out in the 2nd Amendment,

that reads:

"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."

But, when we look at the Supreme Court Decision, we find

1. The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a
firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for
traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.

That says nothing about "bearing arms." In other words, you can keep 'em--in the house--but the Court says nothing about "bearing" these arms--outside of the home.

The Founders meant for us to "keep and bear arms," and if you read the Decision, that right is upheld, but then it weasel-words and omits any mention of "bearing (carrying) arms.

Here's more about that from Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO):

The narrow ruling has already dropped the guard of tens of millions of gun owners.
Gun prohibitionists are regrouping everywhere, at every government level, to overturn
Heller -- and it won’t be that difficult if we stand by and do nothing.

Without a new, dynamic education strategy the Second Amendment movement
will be fighting hundreds of new proposed laws and lawsuits. Heller will indeed become

Washington D.C. has already denied the right of Richard Heller, the man who
appealed the D.C. gun ban to the Supreme Court, to register his pistol, based on the
argument that because it accepts a bottom loading magazine, it’s a “machinegun”.

The rest of newly proposed Washington D.C. regulations are equally ridiculous and/or
dangerous -- openly subverting the spirit of the Heller decision. Municipalities around
the country are already looking at these D.C. proposals as a model for their own
post-Heller regulations.

Once again, the media and entertainment industries are doing their part to re-kindle
gun control frenzy, starting with recently touted ammunition controls. For example...

“We need bullet control! I think every bullet should cost
five-thousand dollars. Because if a bullet cost five thousand
dollars, we wouldn’t have any innocent bystanders.”
- Chris Rock, Comedian

A high impact film will...

1. Showcase the unalienable right to defend our lives -- no matter what the
Supreme Court or any other government body says.

2. Detail the in-depth meaning of “shall not infringe”.

3. Confirm why the militia system keeps government in check... and why every
American is part of the militia.

4. Debunk the “collective right” concept and other common gun grabber lies.

5. Expose the racist history of gun control.

6. Demonstrate why military-style arms may indeed be rightfully owned by
civilians -- and that this was the clear-cut intent of the founders
