The Second Amendment’s Right to Bear Arms: What It Means

The Rutherford Institute

By John W. Whitehead & Nisha Whitehead

“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.”—The Second Amendment to the US Constitution

You can largely determine where a person will fall in the debate over gun control and the Second Amendment based on their view of government and the role it should play in our lives.

In the first group are those who see the government as a Nanny State, empowered to look out for the best interests of the populace, even when that means overriding our rights as individuals and free will.

These individuals tend to interpret the Second Amendment to mean that only members of law enforcement and the military are entitled to own a gun. Case in point: President Biden recently (and wrongly) asserted that “the Second Amendment, from the day it was passed, limited the type of people who could own a gun and what type of weapon you could own. You couldn’t buy a cannon.”

Attack launched on Second Amendment immediately after Colorado shootings

Shortly after the shootings in Colorado, the US government at both the Federal and State levels launched an attack on the Second Amendment. From individual states seeking ways to limit the right to procure and own weapons to various gun-related court cases reaching the Supreme Court, there is an all-out assault on the Second Amendment.

But now the Biden Administration has signaled it might not rely solely on Congress to pass anti-American gun legislation. Instead, the Biden Administration is considering the use of Executive Orders to accomplish gun control measures.

The Executive Orders might include requiring background checks on sales of democrat-labeled “ghost guns.” (Handmade or self-assembled firearms that don’t have serial numbers.) Such an Executive Order considered by the Biden Administration would classify these guns as firearms and thus require background checks.

Anti-gun advocates are pushing for Biden to use Executive Orders

The White House appears to be following recommendations by authoritarian Communo-Fascist organizations like Everytown For Gun Safety and Giffords: Courage to Fight Gun Violence.…
