dirrectly from wikipedia-
There are several versions of the text of the Second Amendment, each with slight capitalization and punctuation differences, found in the official documents surrounding the adoption of the Bill of Rights. One such version was passed by the Congress, which reads:
“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.”
Another version is found in the copies distributed to the states, and then ratified by them, which had this capitalization and punctuation:
“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 original hand-written copy of the Bill of Rights, approved by the House and Senate, was prepared by scribeWilliam Lambert and resides in the National Archives.
in a nutshell, the aruguement of question is, is the right to bear arms a right of the people (society at large) or a right of the army/goverment (ect.), for them to have arms to ensure the goverment stays safe.
i know how i interpret it. just wanted to make sure my fellow americans were aware of this debate-
taken from here-
my purpose for pointing this out is, we have never been playing by the same rules. read up on it and you will see, it is the most important right you have.....it insures all other rights.....no matter your weapon of choice.
I highly recomend getting out to a safe place and squeezing off a weapon and getting young people involved! note the feeling it gives you......and never forget what keep's you free!
