Second amendment

Wednesday, October 24, 2018

The second amendment to the constitution of the United States of America states:

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.


1 The founding fathers were devoted to the military.

2 The amendments primary justification was to prevent the United States from keeping a standing army.

3 Strangely, the authors of the Bill of Rights were not concerned with an individual or personal right to bear arms.

4 The founding fathers were very concerned who should be armed and who should not be armed.

In closing, do you think liberals are protected by water pistols, firecrackers and sling shots? Think America, think!
