Protecting our second amendment rights

The Second Amendment to hthe United States Constitution reads, “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.” For me, what the Founders provided in these words is clear: the American people have the right to arm themselves and no law or government shall ever deprive us of this right.

Many people, when asked which amendment they think is most important, can quickly respond with an answer. Among those you would probably hear are the First Amendment, which guarantees free speech, the Fourth Amendment, which prohibits illegal search and seizure, and the Fifth Amendment, which provides due process to the accused. Others you might hear include the Thirteenth Amendment, which abolished slavery, and the Nineteenth Amendment, which guarantees the right to vote regardless of gender.
