Our 2nd Amendment Right & Holder's Actual Statement

I would like to address an email I've received about Attorney General Holder's "comment" on our right to bear arms.
There is an alleged "quote" from Holder being blindly passed around that he said "We have no right to possess guns". While the MEANING of what he said may equate to that sentiment, his actual comment was different.

What happened was this:
In D.C. v. Heller, Holder joined the Reno-led amicus brief, which urged the Supreme Court to uphold the handgun ban and claimed that the Department of Justice from Franklin Roosevelt through Bill Clinton had always believed that the Second Amendment does not protect any rights of individuals to own guns for personal use.

After the D.C. Circuit ruled against the handgun ban, Holder complained that the decision (and here is what Holder actually DID say) “opens the door to more people having more access to guns and putting guns on the streets.”

OMG! God forbid that us Americans actually exercise our 2nd amendment right, eh? But here is where the liberals say....but the 2nd amendment does no such thing. So, let's visit the 2nd amendment for a wee bit!
"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".
Now because most liberals see the FIRST part in yellow, they say, that this guarantees the STATES, not the individual, to be armed. But, they conveniently skip over the 2nd half in red! Why do I say that? Because after reading "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed" part, and a person cannot see what is plainly being said and say that this amendment doesn't give individuals a right to bear arms either has to be only reading the 1st half of that or completely stupid! Now, as much as I would LOVE to think the latter of most liberals who hold this belief, I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt that it's the former and urge them to finish reading the fricking fracking statement!
AND, I urge those who pass on information like this email, to research it before doing so. This way, you'll be educating others (and yourselves) to the facts....and not just blindly passing on information that isn't factually true (although may be sentimentally true).
