Styx on gun rights and the Bruen decision

For background, read about Bruen here.

I hear even crusty old Joe Biden whined that the decision was somehow unconstitutional, but the right to bear arms in the United States is one of the most important freedoms Americans have. An armed populace is harder for a government to oppress directly, and when citizens have the freedom to arm themselves, those citizens can rely less on the police should the need for immediate justice arise. (As the saying goes, When seconds count, the police are minutes away.) I live in Korea, where there is no right to bear arms, and I live at the sufferance of the government. It's an uncomfortable feeling.
