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.

Armed People - Kill Armed People

By Jerry Ross

Armed People - Kill Armed People. . . Although it may sound like an obvious statement, it is central to the debate over the CO shooting. Key is the fact that the movie theater had a "No Firearms Allowed" policy.

No one in the theater had a weapon but the shooter.

Pro-gun advocates surmise that if a few, maybe one, theater goer had a weapon, even a handgun, they could have prevented or minimized the carnage. Even though the shooter had a bullet-proof vest a series of shots, even from a 22 caliber pistol could have given other individuals time to over power him.

Unless we place an armed officer in every public place, "No Guns" policies insures more massacres like the one in CO.
