               The Second Amendment
Amendment II

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.

The Bill of Rights;       On September 25, 1789, Congress transmitted to the state Legislatures twelve proposed amendments to the  Constitution. Numbers three through twelve were adopted by the states to become the United States (U.S.) Bill of Rights, effective December 15, 1791.James Madison proposed the U.S. Bill of Rights. It largely responded to the Constitution’s influential opponents, including prominent Founding Fathers, who argued that the Constitution should not be ratified because it failed to protect the basic principles of human liberty. The U.S. Bill of Rights was influenced by George Mason’s 1776 Vir-ginia Declaration of Rights, the 1689 English Bill of Rights, works of the Age of Enlightenment pertaining to natural rights, and earlier English political documents such as the Magna Carta (1215).Two additional articles were proposed to the States; only the final ten articles were ratified quickly and correspond to the First through TenthAmendments to the Constitution. The first Article, dealing with the number and appor-tionment of U.S. Representatives, never became part of the Constitution. The second Article, limiting the ability of Congress to increase the salaries of its members, was ratified two centuries later as the 27th Amendment. Though they are incorporated into the document known as the “Bill of Rights”, neither article establishes a right as that term is used today. For that reason, and also because the term had been applied to the first ten amendments long before the 27th Amendment was ratified, the term “Bill of Rights” in modern U.S. usage means only the ten amendments ratified in 1791.The United States Bill of Rights plays a central role in American law and government, and remains a fundamental symbol of the freedoms and culture of the nation. One of the original fourteen copies of the U.S. Bill of Rights is on public display at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.

A "WELL REGULATED MILITIA". The militia in those days was a body of volunteer citizenry who fought alongside the army, but was not under the control of the army.
Many today say that the militia today is fulfilled by the national guard. However, the guard can, and has been controlled by the federal government, neutralizing the main description, since the guard could be usede against the citizenry by a rogue government, which is the main reason for the 2nd Amendment!
Maybe the law-makers will one day realize what the term "shall not be infringed" actually means! Any "gun-free" zone is unconstitutional!
If someone commits a crime with a gun, punish the criminal, not the innocent civilians who happen to own a weapon!
Democrats scream for a "universal registration act"
. Why? Because that would give the government a complete list of guns, their owners, and the addresses, which would greatly enhance their collection of the guns when a socialist government is enacted here!
Any act, whether federal, state or local, which infringes on the 2nd Amendment should be repealed!

Good post. 

Any comments about government regulation about other, non firearms defensive gear, including for example "ray-guns" etc., devices which may make slug-projectile devices obsolete?

All well said...  thanks!
