The US Constitution Second Amendment Analyzed

The US Constitution Second Amendment Analyzed

One particular addition to the United States Constitution  is the second amendment.  It reads as follows: “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.” There appears to be the popular meaning, the intent and call to action, that appears at the surface for reading those words.  Then there is a deeper dig into the understanding of the meaning as the words…
