2nd amendment

  1. Are we, as a nation, interpreting the Constitution properly? Yes? No? In part?
  2. Was the Second Amendment’s original purpose to establish a militia to maintain the public order?
  3. Was “Militia” intended to mean a regulated police force?
  4. Has the Second Amendment’s practical intent been eliminated by the existence of modern governmental resources to provide for state militias and a standing Army?
  5. In your opinion, do citizens have more to fear from governmental power, or private citizens owning guns? Thus, how does the second amendment in the 21st century promote freedom?
  6. The United States Supreme Court has already made clear through its legal opinions that gun regulation is constitutional. If that is the case, why then hasn’t stricter gun regulation been established?
