THE SECOND AMENDMENT: It’s Monumental Strength - And It’s Limits

For your consideration, the United States Constitution Amendment II (complete):

“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.”

That is it - the complete text of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution. It was part of the first Ten Amendments, which became known as our “Bill of Rights”, which were finally (and collectively) ratified by 1792. However, the great question currently at issue is “What did it mean then - and what does it mean now”.
