A Well Regulated Militia by Saul Cornell elaborately describes the Second Amendment, the right to bear arms. The Second Amendment is one of the most important laws enacted to protect the right of people of the United States. It gives the people the right to protect themselves, their families and their properties, as well as allowing citizens to arm themselves, so they can take part in a well-regulated militia. A Well Regulated Militia helps understand specific details about the Second Amendment because Americans are divide over the law. Some citizens affirm that the Amendment protects an individual's right to possess weapons, however others believe it does no more than protect the right of the states to maintain militias. This book gives a clear historical road map that charts how we have arrived at our current impasse over weapons. Cornell is the author of this book and he demonstrates that both sides are not accurate in their opinion of the law. He discusses how the gun control war took on a new urgency during the Reconstruction. At a point when the Democrats defeated the Republicans, it elevated the collective rights, which set the terms for constitutional debate over the issue for centuries to come. In the 21st century, conflict about the Second Amendment still continues and citizens are still searching for a solution that is obviously difficult to find. Some citizens of the United States agree about the law to bear arms and some do not. In my opinion, A Well Regulated Militia is a great help book to understand the great American gun debate, starting with a discussion of the significance of the Second Amendment, tracing the history from the eighteenth history. It also touches upon the general public's debates over the law.
The idea of gun ownership is about having a safe life, property, and state. Without the government involved, every citizen has the right to have their own weapons for self-defense, so citizen can defend themselves, as well as their families, and properties.
