The Second Amendment The right to bear arms.

"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 militia refers to those civilians trained as soldiers but not part of the regular army. The colonists depended on the militia to protect them. The militia was seen as to have the ability to fight for liberty in a state. Some people argue the right to bear arms relates to the militia, but others think its the right where citizens can bear arms. This picture represents the guns that citizens could use to protect themselves.
