No, the second amendment IS NOT your "right to carry", the 2nd amendment clearly states "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", what well regulated militia are you part of? What "security" does that militia provide for the state that isn't being provided by our extremely well regulated standing Army, Army Reserve, and National Guard. Too many folks want to skip to the part where it says you can have a gun without reading the first part of the amendment...go get educated, then come debate

even SCOTUS has ruled that there's NO requirement to be in a militia,"well-regulated" or not,to have the right to keep and bear arms.

you are a HUGE LIAR.

you better REREAD the 2nd;
ALL it says about "well-regulated militias" is that they are "necessary to a free state",NOTHING MORE.
the RKBA is "of the People"not of any militia,"well-regulated" or not.
the 2nd makes NO restriction or limitation of the RKBA to militias,or militia membership,nor does it mandate "well-regulated".

any competent,honest English teacher can help you comprehend the Second Amendment. Go find one.

Every other freedom spoken of by the framers speaks of INDIVIDUAL rights but all of a sudden liberals think they changed to GROUP rights just for right to own guns.

As far as the founding fathers were concerned, they do indeed constitute a militia. Also as far as I'm concerned.

Well regulated in the context and times means highly skilled. The preface to the right to bear arms is that the government want all the citizens to be very skilled in the use of firearms.

The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.

bullshat BOY

the usage of the comma in the era that it was written was to denote a break. that the first part and second part were individualof each other and at the same time both equal to each other.

get educated? get de-indoctyrinated in your plantation slavery and cowardice BOY

The militia is defined in the United States Code; I recommend you go educate yourself on what that means, then come debate. Self-defense is a right conferred by GOD and codified in our founding document. In order to form a militia, one must be armed when the call to defend your home is made. When the threat is at your door, it is too late. Further, the standing Army are not authorized to enforce law or protect you in any way; recommend you go educate yourself on that as well. Seems you're the one in need or reading glasses.

The "people " are the militia!

I’m getting sick and tired of all the violence. Every few months, the campus community gets another email blast from the police saying that a gunman is loose on the UNCW campus. For those who don’t know, UNCW stands for The University of North Carolina at We-are-sitting-ducks-because-only-criminals-carry-guns-on-campus. Our ban on guns has turned the campus into safe haven for armed robbers. It has also increased the incidence of violent crime around the perimeter of our campus. The explanation for the trend is purely common sense. And my solution is pure genius, largely because it is born of my boundless humility.
