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.

Marco Rubio Offers Strong Defense of Gun Rights & 2nd Amendment

By - 4/25/
Sen. Marco Rubio on Friday praised the National Rifle Association for defending the Second Amendment rights of individuals and families across the nation that the Florida Republican said are under attack from the Obama administration.

Speaking to the thousands that turned out for the annual NRA gathering here in Indianapolis, Mr. Rubio said that gun restrictions have proven ineffective and that the NRA’s work is key to preserving “American dream in the 21st century.”
“I believe that the Second Amendment is about so much more than the right to bear arms,” Mr. Rubio said. “At its core, it is about preserving our God-given right to life, to liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
Mr. Rubio, seen by some in the GOP as a potential 2016 presidential hopeful, said that advocates advocates for stricter gun laws fail to recognize “the futility and ineffectiveness of gun restrictions.”
“Many of our cities with the most gun crimes are ones with the strictest gun laws, and the reason for this is clear,” he said. “Law-abiding gun owners like those here today, like myself, we will inevitably — even if grudgingly — follow the law. But the criminals do not. Criminals ignore and break that law, because by definition that is what criminals do.”
