I’m working on a Law question and need guidance to help me study.
The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution states that “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” (U.S. Const. amend. II). The meaning of this sentence is a fiercely contested and currently topical social issue that has been explored by the United States Supreme Court several times. Review the three links below for opposing interpretations of the Second Amendment and summarize your own interpretation in your initial post to this Discussion Board. Respond to your classmates regarding a position with which you agree and explain why.
Be sure to support your conclusions with authoritative sources.
