WAY too many small things to sit and correct since this site does not properly support cut and paste, be interesting read none the less on the meaning of the US Khornstatution Second Amendment

Couldn't find the debatable part. 

Pretty clear what the 2A means, not to mention the numerous USSC rulings concerning it over the years.

What part of the "this site" (Atlantic?) gives you a problem?

Cut & Paste sample:


--- Quote ---What does the Second Amendment mean? This question is at the center of one of the most divisive debates in modern American constitutional law. The amendment itself contains 27 words: ?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.? This provision references both the collective right of a militia and an individual right. Does this two-century-old text, then, mean that Americans today have a right to gun ownership and use?

Yes indeed. A real PITA that has existed for years, even before expatua came into being! Unfortunately, one doesn't see the completed result when "Previewing" one's post.

A quick delve into the SMF Help Forum threw up this:
