The second amendment is straight forward plain English. It needs no interpretation. Though everyone seems to take a crack at it. Here is some “expert” opinion.http://www.guncite.com/gc2ndmea.htmlMy OPINION is that this statement is self explanatory.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. If you succeed in removing weapons from the hands of the people, then they will be at the mercy of both government AND criminals.
