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”.



During the entire sixty years of my adult life, I’ve never before been witness to such a spectacle, as a man who purports to be seeking the Presidency of the United States, by first outraging, belittling and abusing whole segments of the electorate. Then not content with this irrational display, we see him go on to magnify his senselessness by (in the next breath) claiming that these victims of his abuse “really love him” and would actually vote for him in a general election.
