Good Observation

What this guys says is exactly right:

There are 27 words in the Second Amendment. The meaning of the first 13 words have been argued about by people for many years. The final 14 words are simple and unequivocal in their meaning. In fact, for the purpose of deciding this case, it doesn’t matter what comes before the final 14 words. Even the justices and the D.C. lawyers seem to agree that the final 14 words are the “operating” phrase of the Second Amendment.

If the Founding Fathers had chosen to do so, they could have written that preamble in this way: “Because we foresee that sometime in the future the Easter Bunny will evolve into an extremely dangerous entity to the lives and well-being of the citizens, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

So, it does not matter why we have the right, only that we do.

Nail on the head.
