Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution - Bill of Rights

"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."

Preservation and Proposition

Our mission is to document the pivotal Second Amendment events that occurred in Frontier Mercersburg, and its environs, and to heighten awareness of the importance of these events in the founding of our Nation.

We are dedicated to the preservation of the place where the Second Amendment was "born" and to the proposition that the Second Amendment (the "right to bear arms") is the keystone of our Liberty and the Republic.

Guns & Freedom of Speech

JW Ross - President - Birthplace of the Nation Foundation

I am the purveyor of The site promotes the origins of the 2nd Amendment often known as the "Right to Bear Arms". The site has been up for a year and has tens of thousands of "hits" or responses. Based as it is in Mercersburg, it covers the historical origins of our 2nd amendment rights which were "born"on the Pennsylvania frontier in 1765.

Interestingly 80% of the "hits" on my site are from countries where liberty and the freedom of speech are severely restricted - countries like Russia and China. Each of these countries also severely restrict the individuals "Right to Bear Arms" today and historically. Citizens of these countries understand what we take for granted, and that is, without the 2nd Amendment . . . there is no 1st Amendment.
