The Second Amendment, “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.” With all these crimes committed with guns our rights to “life Liberty and the pursuit of happiness” are being infringed because guns are not “well regulated .”
