The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution 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.”
In a government of the people, by the people and for the people, in which the state does not exist without the consent of the people, it is clear the the security of the (free) state depends upon the right to keep and bear arms.
(a)The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
However, as in the in the opinion of esteemed Supreme Court Justice Scalia,
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia said Sunday that there are “undoubtedly” limits to a person’s right to bear arms under the Second Amendment, but that future court cases will have to decide where to draw the line.
Thus it remains up to the Supreme Court, as final arbiter to determine what constutues an infringement.
And the “punt gun” has long been banned.
I’m solidly with Scalia here, there’s room for regulation.
The nature of which is to be determined on a case by case basis.
