Should we overthrow other governments who violate their citizens first and second ammendment rights? What about China? Good you say??? Well what about England, Canada and Australia? they have clearly violated their citizens second ammendment right! Or is it that they do NOT have those rights and that the Bill of Rights ONLY covers citizens of the United States of America?

First of all the ONLY people who have Admendment rights are here in the united States. They have no 2nd rights to infringe in Britian, because there are no gun rights in Britain.
Secondly your highlighted words mentions "the people" not the "People of the united States" If they are here they are protected by the rights of this country. Why? I don't know! I guess it keeps us from murdering foreigners!

Thanks that is exactly what I had said. I hope you didn't think I was saying that they did have a second ammendment. That was the exact opposite of my point.

I don't read it that way. Do you have some other insight as to what "the people" refers to or just your own opinion?

Also you may wnat to read the Bill of Rights again. Theres nothing in there that even mentions murdering people foreign or otherwise. I think you must have been referring to the 10 commandments...

Any man, anywhere, has the God-given right to have a weapon.

That doesn't mean that he won't be arrested, of course.
That applies even here in America.

Apparently, "shall not be infringed"
can be interpreted to mean "shall not be tolerated"
