The Right to Keep and Bear Arms

Last week the United States Department of Justice released “the most thorough analysis of the Second Amendment ever conducted by the Executive Branch of the United States government.” The 93 page report, “Whether the Second Amendment Guarantees an Individual Right.” As the report’s subtitle states, “The Second Amendment secures a right of individuals generally, not a right of States or a right restricted to persons serving in militias.” Thanks to David Kopel at the Independence Institute for the lead on this, and you should check out his great Second Ammendment site.
