What is the full 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution?

Quick Answer

The full Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads that "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." It was ratified on Dec. 17, 1791.

Full Answer

One of the 10 amendments known as the Bill of Rights, the Second Amendment's meaning and applicability to the rights of Americans in the 21st century is a hotly debated issue.

As of 2015, its interpretation extends to give a person the right to own a gun for the purpose of self-defense. In the wake of many tragic shootings, some citizens have called for more stringent laws applying to gun ownership.

Those who disagree cite the Second Amendment as reason to fight the restriction of ownership.

  1. Everyone needs to stop referring to the so called Second Amendment, the right to own and bear arms is not only a God given right it happens to be a commandment.

    1. YOU show me in the TEN Commandments where it says it is our right to bear arms-No such thing-

  2. Everyone who is in the status of so called public servant who suggest, put on the table, or any action to infringe upon the Second Amendment should immediately be arrested and investigated for conspiracy to commit treason.
    I do think however that full back ground checks on those who try to buy a gun through the proper process is warranted. Why make it so easy for any criminal or crazy to get a gun even though they will succeed one way or another. Criminals do not obey or follow any laws that don't agree with them so obviously setting rules, restrictions and laws on so called gun control is insane.
    Gun control is hitting what you are aiming at and the reality is that this is all about people control by a rogue government run by treasonous criminals from the top all the way down to the local empires we call counties.

  3. If they want to raise the age for a person to purchaser a gun to 21 then the age to join the military should also be raised to 21. It's okay for an 18 year old to join the military and handle all kinds of guns and killing equipment but now some are saying that they should have to be 21 to own a gun of their own.
