Can Any Leftist Who Believes In Gun Control Answer This Question?

When the first amendment says "the people" have a right to assemble it means all the people and not just government-sanctioned organizations. Right?

When the fourth amendment says "the people" are not to be subjected to unreasonable search and seizure, that means all the people and not just whomever the government decides. Right?

When the fifth amendment says "no person" shall be put into double jeopardy or be forced to testify against himself, "person" means everyone and not just whomever the government decides. Right?

When the eighth amendment says cruel and unusual punishment shall not be inflicted, that applies to everyone and not just whomever the government decides. Right?

So why, when the second amendment says "the people" have the right to keep and bear arms do some people (mostly on the left) think it's meant to apply only to the people whom the government selects?

These are really great points! As usual, it appears that the cat has gotten the tongue of the leftists you've challenged to reply.

Indeed, no one has been able to. :)
