Constitution Is Clear

Jul 03, 2019

To the Editor:

In the June 26 Commentary (“Constituion Correction Course – It Is Time to Use Article V”), John Imperiale stated that “the Second Amendment is poorly worded.” He further said, “Consider also that at the time it was enacted there were no assault weapons, there were no police forces and there was a need for militias.”

The Second Amendment is quite clearly worded, according to the man who co-authored it, George Mason. He said, at the Virginia Convention to ratify the Constitution in 1788, “I ask Sir, what is the Militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.” There is nothing vague about that.
