"A liberal's lament" by Jonathan Turley

More & more liberals are finally recognizing the truth that the 2nd Amendment protects an individual right to keep & bear arms. In the below article Jonathan Turley states that he tried to ignore the 2nd amendment for many years but the recent court case related to the DC gun ban forced him to research it. He now reluctantly concedes that the NRA has been right all along in its assertion that the 2nd Amendment applies to individual rights, not the right of the government to have an army with weapons as some Liberals still contend. It is after all the bill of rights that protects individual rights - the government is not granted rights by the bill of rights, the people are. Just one example of a Liberal who has finally seen the light is below:

Jonathan Turley is the Shapiro Professor of Public Interest Law at George Washington University and a member of USA TODAY's board of contributors.

We can only hope. I've never heard of a pro second amendment person changing his view to believe that it only protects the right of the States to have armed militias rather than an individual right, but I have heard of many confused folks finding the light after a little research. All it takes is a little research, the only problem is that some people don't want to know the truth. They just can't handle the truth, so they just ignore it & hope the 2nd Amendment will just go away. :)
