The Second Amendment (Unabridged)

The SCOPE motto asks the question;  What part of infringed don’t you understand?

‘A well-regulated Militia, being necessary for the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.’

Translated for those that just don’t understand.

  • The sentence does not restrict the right to keep and bear arms, nor does it state or imply possession of the right elsewhere or by others than the people; it simply makes a positive statement with respect to a right of the people.”
  • The right to keep and bear arms is not said by the amendment to depend on the existence of a militia.
  • The right is assumed to exist and is unconditional.
  • The Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States unconditionally protects the people’s right to keep and bear arms, forbidding all governments formed under the Constitution from abridging that right.
