Thanks.
Which was worse?
Taxation without representation?
Or representation without taxation? (50% of our citizens, now)

The Pennsylvania Constitution of 1776 was the basis of the one adopted by the US Congress. The 1776 Pennsylvania Constitution states:

Section 21 . Right to Bear Arms The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned.

This clearly defines the individual and not the collective with the right to bear arms.
