A Look at the Second Amendment

To Keep and Bear Arms

Series: The Constitution of the United States

By Doreen Gonzales

This is arguably the most controversial amendment included in the Bill of Rights, and author Doreen Gonzales explains why. Gonzales presents three distinct viewpoints that seek to define this amendment, important court cases and acts that have challenged this amendment, and the recent debate over the individual vs. collective rights of gun ownership. Approved Web site links are also provided.
