The purpose of this study is to present and explain texts in the Constitution of the United States that discuss ownership and proper use of Arms. These texts make clear the following: 1) The Constitution reserves the right to own, to keep and bear Arms to members of the military, the militia, and the police, 2) Individuals not employed in the Service of State, not trained in the use of Arms to members of the military, the Militia, and the police, 3) The Constitution specifically states that private citizens, as such, have no right, keep, or use Arms, 4) In the Constitution, the keeping of Arms is reserved to members of the army, navy, Militia, and police because the purpose for owning and using Arms is “to insure domestic tranquility [and] provide for common Defense.

Reviews

“Most people think that the Constitution says the right to keep and bear Arms is found in the Second Amendment. But, this is Amendment was added because of an ambiguity in what the Constitution first says about arming the Militia. What the Second Amendment says about arming the Militia must be interpreted in terms of what the Constitution says about the purpose of the Militia. … The Second Amendment says that the purpose (or condition) for rightfully keeping and bearing Arms is because having a well-regulated Militia is necessary to the security of the State.”
