Can you imagine our founders in Boston in a similar situation? Someone sets off a homemade bomb and then the “good guys,” the British soldiers, start a house-to-house search for the bomber(s). The citizens of Boston would have pulled out their guns and said, “Oh, no you don’t!” Or maybe, in the more eloquent Colonial style, “You have gone too far! You shall not enter these premises except on pain of death.” This underscores why the Second Amendment is so vitally important. It was exactly for this reason that the founders wrote the third and fourth amendments to the Constitution. In the Declaration of Independence, four of the “abuses and usurpations” that are listed were addressed by them.
