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.

Pennsylvania -- 'Deadly Force' and the 2nd Amendment

Castle Doctrine goes into effect -- August 27, 2011

Now in Pennsylvania, the Birthplace of the 2nd Amendment, anyone inside a "home" can use deadly force to protect himself or herself against an attacker or intruder who unlawfully and forcefully enters that home with the intent to do great bodily harm to any occupants.

The Castle Doctrine covers a dwelling (including porch, deck or patio), or residence (defined as any dwelling in which a person resides, temporarily or permanently, or visits as an invited guest) or occupied vehicle.
