The Second Amendment 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 Second Amendment gives people the right to keep and bear arms. To create a law that bans people from having possession of firearms would violate the second amendment and be unconstitutional.
