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 - A Natural Necessity

By Thomas P. Stefanucci (Greece)

While most animals in the wild have some sort of natural defense against enemies, man does not. Man has no claws, no venom, no razor-sharp teeth and no armor. Since the beginning of time, man has created tools to work the land, and weapons to protect himself from predators and aggressors. That’s why the Second Amendment reads “the right to keep and bear arms.”

It does not say that a person cannot carry a concealed weapon, or has to apply for a permit to own a gun; it says “the right to keep and bear arms” ­ period. The evil people in the world will always have weapons and will always injure or kill other people. The population is just a flock of sheep to these people. The government is taking away the ability for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves.

It’s time our government gave us back the right to protect ourselves from the evil menaces in our world.
