The Second And Sixth Amendment
The Second amendment
The Second Amendment of the 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." While this amendment is often just associated with gun laws, while this is true the main part of this amendment is the idea of every state may have a well regulated militia for security, a militia is a military force that is raised from the civil population to supplement a regular army in an emergency.
