Examining the 2nd Amendment presented by Attorney Kenneth Bernhard
Since the drafting of the Constitution, and over a period of 240 years, there are only three truly relevant Supreme Court cases on the subject of the Second Amendment prior to 2008. In each instance, the Court found that it applied only to the arming of Militia’s. So what happened that altered court precedence and transformed the meaning of the Second Amendment? Attorney Ken Bernhard will take us through its history and explain how the events of the 60’s and the transformation of the NRA from an organization that supported gun restriction legislation to one that opposes all forms of government controls of gun ownership changed today’s political landscape.
