The United States Constitution -

What's The Point Of The Second Amendment?

Hello Fellow Americans,



After our blog on the First Amendment you all demanded more and we’re totally here to deliver. And today we’re going to officially start our in-depth series at a look into the constitution.



We already discussed the First Amendment—So, today we’ll be covering the Second Amendment and giving a little history as well as the purpose it holds today.



So, without further ado, let’s get started…



The Second Amendment 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."



This basically protects…



A Well-Regulated Militia






This is basically an emergency military force to act as a local militia. They were originally used to fight off Indian raids and invasions as well as act as a local police force.






To Bear Arms






This is just the basic human right to have possession of a firearm, more specifically a gun.

How It Started: 




This amendment was primarily put into play because of the extreme British control on the 13 colonies before America was established. The citizens of the 13 colonies wanted to make sure they were protected and prospering at all times.






So, let us know if you have any additional questions on this amendment and we’ll be happy to answer them in the comments.






See You Later Patriot!!!
