  1. In light of the 18th school shooting in the United States this year (and it's only mid-February) I've been seeing a lot of posts on Facebook and Twitter about gun violence and gun laws in the United States. Invariably, someone will assert that the government can't regulate firearms - the Second Amendment to the Constitution forbids it. They need to familiarize themselves with the actual text of the Constitution, not the propaganda. Actually, the second amendment specifically spells out gun control. Note the words "well regulated". Amendment II 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. So who is the regulator? Believe it or not, those foresighted men who wrote and ratified the Bill of Rights covered that too. Amendment X The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. So each state can regulate who can or can not join a militia, or each locality, or if We the People have another idea who should regulate, we can do that too. The point is the militia must be well regulated. The Constitution doesn't spell out anyone's right to protect their home from burglars or to hunt deer or turkeys; to be honest, those probably fall under "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness". The Constitution guarantees your right to join a well regulated militia for the purpose of national defense. It does not guarantee the right of each individual to own and use firearms, any more than it guarantees a right to libel or blackmail with the first amendment. https://www.archives.gov/founding-docs/bill-of-rights-transcript
