"Bill of Rights simply enshrined..." right to own guns.

Wrong. It did a lot more than that.

For the reasons I recently stated, it made it plain the right to bear arms was put there for a reason---to defend the US through a "well-regulated" citizen army and thereby avoid the necessity of a standing army, since at the time many feared a standing army.

Now just why are gun owners still afraid of our own army, navy or air force?
