“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
These words offer a powerful opening to one of the most important documents in the history of the world. For over 200 years, the Constitution of the United States of America has been the envy of the world. It’s the guiding force behind the most enduring democratic system of government ever; it helped create the environment that produced the greatest economic engine in history; it’s been used as a model for better government around the world.
However, some would argue that it is being eroded.
What is, or isn’t a fair interpretation of this important legislation? It’s a question that scholars, activists, media commentators, and regular people have grappled with for the entirety of our nation.
In our opinion, simply, we believe in a literal interpretation of our Second Amendment – a reading that affirms the People’s right to bear arms.
