In the country, God gave us the Constitution of the United States of America as the authority over us. The second amendment to it 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.”
“REGULATE” means: “direct or govern by rule,” “put or keep in good order.” “MILITIA” means: “a body of citizen soldiers, called out only in emergencies.” “INFRINGE” means: “violate; transgress; encroach; trespass.” “ENCROACH” means: “enter upon the domain of another; trespass; make inroads.” An inroad is a forcible or insidious encroachment; a raid. “KEEP” means: “maintain possession or custody of; retain;” “continue or maintain in action or conduct.” “BEAR” means: “hold up; support; carry; convey; “put up with; accept; endure; sustain; “bring forward; render; “possess; show; exercise.”
