Quote by Ken Konecki, July 27, 1992
The 2nd amendment was never intended to allow private citizens to 'keep and bear arms.' If it had, there would have been wording such as 'the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.'
This quote suggests that the intention behind the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution, which protects the right to bear arms, was not to grant this right to individuals. It argues that if that were the case, the wording of the amendment would explicitly state that the right of all people to possess and carry weapons shall not be restricted. The quote presents a perspective that questions the interpretation of the Second Amendment as an individual right to gun ownership.
