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.
As I read the above words, I do not read guns, I do not read weapons of war, I do not read a specified type of arms, I read the word arms. The definition of arms is weapons and ammunition; armaments.
The second amendment also reads that the purpose of the Militia is necessary for the security of a FREE state. The preservation of freedom was the reason for the Second Amendment.
"What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms." Thomas Jefferson
"To disarm the people...[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them." George Mason
"The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. A well-regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country. James Madison
"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined.... The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun." Patrick Henry
"For it is a truth, which the experience of ages has attested, that the people are always most in danger when the means of injuring their rights are in the possession of those of whom they entertain the least suspicion." Alexander Hamilton
"The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them." Joseph Story
"The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms." Samuel Adams
THE VERY PURPOSE OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT WAS TO PROTECT OUR FREEDOM FROM THOSE WHO WOULD SEEK TO ENSLAVE US, FOR IT WOULD BE THE VERY PEOPLE WHO CALLED FOR US TO SURRENDER OUR ARMS THAT WERE THE MOST DECEITFUL AND DANGEROUS TO FREEDOM.
