The Constitution in the 2nd Amendment 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.”
That is a restriction on the US Federal government to not infringe on the right to bear arms. How can it be more clear?
A well regulated militia, being necessary for the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
means no government can infringe, not just the feds.
security of a free State refers to the state of being free... a form of status... big s state...
