US Constitution Series, Amendment II

Amendment II. Bearing Arms

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.
Of course two recent United Sates Supreme Court cases, Heller v. District of Columbia, __ US __, 128 S.Ct. 2783 (2008) and McDonald v. City of Chicago, ___ U.S. ___, 130 S.Ct. 3020 (2010), have held respectively that the right to keep and bear arms was an individual, not simply a collective right, and that the states were bound to recognize that individual right.
