Columbia, SC — The Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights 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.”
As a simple country boy and a disabled Vietnam veteran, I believe that our government has no right at all to require us to register guns. I believe the word “infringed” speaks for itself, because when this amendment was ratified on Dec. 15, 1791, no guns were registered to citizens.
I believe it would be unconstitutional to pass a gun registration law that would override the Second Amendment.
