Did the framers of the Second Amendment intend only to protect the right to bear arms within a “well-regulated militia”? Proponents of gun control say yes. But does it even matter what the framers of the Constitution intended? Why can’t we just craft rules that make sense today? Does the Constitution guarantee the right to own guns for self-defense? For defense against a tyrannical government? What kind of arms are covered by the Second Amendment? And who decides? We will try to answer these questions in the latest installment of the Mini Law School.
