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.

Illegal Aliens and the 2nd Amendment


Fifth Circuit: Illegal Aliens Have No Second Amendment Right to Bear Arms

The Fifth Circuit holds that "illegal aliens" are not part "of the people" as mentioned in the Second Amendment of the Federal Constitution. Strong concurrence and dissent by Judge Dennis.

This case seems bound for the U.S. Supreme Court and may be far broader than the specific issue (right to bear arms) addressed by the Court.
