The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution reads as follows:
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.
Robert Farago, writing at The Truth About Guns:
[New York] requires people to register, sell or transfer (out of state) “assault rifles” and “high capacity” magazines. Many Empire State gun and standard capacity ammunition magazine owners have complied. Many have not. So, at some point, the State’s gonna go get ‘em. People on both sides of the law enforcement divide will die and the s will hit the fan. Meanwhile, there it is: the reason why expanded background checks, indeed all background checks and any type of registration, set the stage for confiscation. And tyranny.
The Constitution is written in what we normal folks call “Plain English”.
It was designed to be read by all citizens at the time of the founding, so that they could read, understand, and ratify it. The Constitution — no matter what temporary politicians, activist judges and other leftists may tell you — is the highest law in the land.
The Constitution protects your rights, no matter what the Statists, the Marxists and the Progressives tell you.
