The Second Amendment

The Second Amendment was written to protect the right of individuals to keep and bear modern firearms. When the constitution was ratified these firearms were muskets; today they are modern rifles like the AR-15.

There is also two words written in the second amendment, somehow over looked, "Well Regulated," . Not too many seem to want to see regulations inacted. Until regulations are as important to gun owners as their guns, there will be problems.

It is what it is,
"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.'
further,
In the Heller case, the U.S. Supreme Court stated that "[t]he adjective 'well-regulated' implies nothing more than the imposition of proper discipline and training."

At the time the constitution was written..."well regulated" (a steam engine term) loosely translated to "working" or "functional" . In no way did they want to imply the government would ever control firearms owned by the colonists by this language, as they just wanted to make sure the peasantry was well armed to protect the new country, and liberty.
