As Far As the Second Amendment goes--It reads>>>
There are several versions of the text of the Second Amendment, each with slight capitalization and punctuation differences, found in the official documents surrounding the adoption of the Bill of Rights. One version was passed by the Congress, while another is found in the copies distributed to the States and then ratified by them.
As passed by the Congress:
As ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, Secretary of State: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.
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.
The original hand-written copy of the Bill of Rights, approved by the House and Senate, was prepared by scribe William Lambert and resides in the National Archives.
The Second Amendment is the only amendment to the Constitution with a stated purpose.[9
Let us Remember that when this was written and ratified--The main body of the Militia- a.k.a National Guard, was the Infantry- each and every National Guard Soldier had to provide his own musket for training and for war.
