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.

2nd Amendment -- President's Plan to Challenge New Gun Rights

By JW Ross

To 2nd Amendment supporters who thought that the recent Supreme Court's decision (specifically Heller and McDonald v. Chicago) was the final word regarding their "right to bear arms", a recent ruling by a Federal judge will prove troublesome.

The judge who has the support of the White House and DOJ has ruled inexplicably that the recent Supreme Court decision does not grant licensed gun owners the right to carry their guns in public. Although this seems counter to the "intent" of the ruling by the highest court in the land, the issue remains in question because the Supreme Court justices were not explicit on the issue of "bearing" arms.

Watcher feel that the White House is setting the stage with this Federal judge's ruling for another court test during President Obama's second term, when he will very likely have the opportunity to replace at least two retiring court justices with more liberal appointees. New appointees will undoubtedly sway the present 5 to 4 decision in favor of a strong 2nd amendment to a 5 to 4 vote in favor of renewing gun restrictions or the elimination of the right altogether.

In the meantime, it is expected that liberal judges will continue to throw up "smoke screen rulings" to thwart any serious changes to right to carry laws in major cities throughout the United States.
