The First Part of the Second Amendment
Most people seem to think that the Second Amendment exclusively says, “Everyone has the right to own a gun.”
But what it actually says 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.”
This clause seems to get overlooked almost always.
It’s like when you hear a song that you love. Then you find out it’s by One Direction. And you think, “I’m just going to pretend I don’t know that.”
Our Founding Fathers knew that regulations would be necessary.
That’s why it’s in there, Hoss.
