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.

LOGIC: 1st Amendment and the 2nd Amendment

By JRoss

Critics of the 2nd Amendment conclude that since the Founders couldn't have anticipated multi-shot weapons (in the time of single shot firearms) the 2nd Amendment should be null and void. Accepting that logic one would conclude that the 1st Amendment (the right of free speech) should be null and void with the invention of the telephone, fax, and any other form of multiple/electronic speech.
