Sarah M.           AMENDMENT 2

The second amendment, is the right to keep and bear arms, for self-defense, or in a time of need, and to maintain militia organizations.

The second amendment was a very big deal in the second half of the 20th century, but most of that has calmed down by now. Some people however, still think that only militia members should posess the right.

So basically, the concept is argued on a lot.

The amendment was ratified in December, 1791, after James Madison proposed it, due to the fact that the amendment was originally brought up to allow more power state militias, and to let the citizens fight back against a tyrannical government.

Ever since the amendment was official, Americans have argued on the concept and the meaning of the amendment. It has caused both the collective side, and the oposing side, to argue their points to no end.

Just remember; The second amendment, is the right to bear arms.
