81% Believe 2nd Amendment Means Right to Bear Arms

By    |   Tuesday, 13 Jul 2010 09:12 AM

Apparently, a lot of liberals also must believe that there is an individual right to keep and bear arms.


Angus Reid, from the Global Monitor, writes this:

Most people in the United States interpret their Constitution’s Second Amendment in the same fashion, according to a poll by Angus Reid Public Opinion. 81 percent of respondents believe the Second Amendment means that individuals have the right to keep and bear arms.

The U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment guarantees Americans the right "to keep and bear arms." Some American states have enacted their own gun control regulations, independent of existing federal legislation.

In June 2008, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled — in a 5-4 decision — that "the right of the people to keep and bear arms" is not limited to state militias and protects "the inherent right of self-defence."


The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution reads: "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." For you, personally, what does the Second Amendment mean?

That individuals have the right to keep and bear arms 81 percent
That individuals do not have the right to keep and bear arms 9 percent
Not sure 10 percent
