Second Amendment

By: Jason Karuma

A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the rights of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Historical background

With British policy not only allow its colonist to keep firearms, but to encourage them to do, in order to protect themselves in conflicts with the Natives. in most colonies passed laws for male citizens to keep Arms and serve in the local Militia. They should include this in constitution because more citizens can defend themselves.

Supreme Court Case

United States v. Lopez(1995). The Supreme Court ruled Congress had gone too far in using cause Gun Free Zone(1990). To control firearms and curtail armed violence in and around school. The Court's decision ruled that act and therefore, was outside Congress's power to enforce. Any such restrictions on guns in school zones therefore were left to the state.
