what is the literal and historical meaning of the Second Amendment’s right of citizens to keep and use personal firearms? do those who wish stricter gun control have a constitutional leg to stand on? is the argument that limiting citizens rights to own guns will lower deaths caused by people who use guns valid or not? is the National Rifle Association’s mantra that “when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns” a valid argument or not? may States/localities ban gun ownership or possession and not violate the rights conveyed by the Second Amendment? Why or why not?
